Calculation of aggregate marks

- One language
- Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Professional
- Any topic except the above four (subject to the highest digit)
For Paper-II (B.Arch./B.Planning):-
- No other two topics
- If the number given in any subject is not 100, then the points will be increased to 100 (up or down), so that the total points are out of 500.
- If a Board grants grade grade only without providing a uniform percentage point on the grade sheet, then the candidate should get a certificate from the board which specifies the equivalent digits and deposits at the time of acceptance of the allotted seat. If such a certificate is not provided, then the decision taken by CSAB / JoSAA will be final.
- If a board gives the total marks to consider in Class XI and Class XII exams (in 10 + 2 system), then only the marks of Class XII will be considered.
- If a board does not give marks given in individual subjects, but only gives the total marks, then the total points given by the board will be treated as such.
A) Top 20 Percent Cutoff
- Class-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percent are calculated on the basis of the marks made by those candidates, who pass on their respective boards in the special year.
- The cut-off marks for PWD candidates will be similar to the cut-off marks for General, OBC-NCL, SC and ST categories.
- The top 20 percent cut-off for the academic year 2019 will be considered for those candidates who will pass the Class 12th (or equivalent) examination in 2019. Similarly, the top 20 percent cut-off for the academic year 2018 will be considered for those candidates who pass the class 12th (or equivalent) examination in 2018.
- If a candidate passes class 12th (or equivalent) examination in 2018, but writes one or a few topics in 2019 for improvement or any other reason, then the top 20 percent cut-off for 2018 will be considered. However, if a candidate writes all the subjects in 2019, then the best of two exhibitions will be considered.
- If no board gives information about the cut-off for the top 20 percent, then the candidate will have to submit a certificate from the concerned board, which states that he comes within the top 20 percent of successful candidates. If the candidate fails to do so, then the cut-off marks for the CBSE will be used.
B) Total marks of 75% (65% for SC / ST / PWD)
- The total number of candidates collected by the candidate in the academic year 2019 in the twelfth grade (or equivalent) board examination will be considered for candidates who pass the said examination in 2019.
- Class XII (or equivalent) board exams, the total number collected by the candidate in 2018 will be considered for the candidates who passed the said examination in 2018 provided that the candidates are not present in any subject again in 2019. .
- If a candidate passes class 12th (or equivalent) in 2018, but writes any necessary subject in 2019 for improvement or any other reason, then the total percentage will be calculated by considering the maximum number obtained in the required subjects.
- If a candidate has appeared in class 12th (or equivalent) board examination in 2018, but will be seen again in 2019, then the best of the two exhibitions will be considered.
