  • The candidates who have studied the elective language will get an advantage of 2% in the best four percentage. This rule is applicable only to those who apply for an honours degree in any language course.

If you want to calculate the best four percentage for B.Com and B.A. programme, you must choose one language (functional/ elective/ core) and any three elective subjects. In case if there is a change in the stream, you will have the disadvantage of up to 5% on the best four percentage.

Here are some of the examples on how to calculate the score:-

Example 1: -

Let us assume that your score in different subjects as follows: -

  • Home Science – 94
  • English – 88
  • Business Studies – 92
  • Accounts – 90

Now, you need to add the total marks, i.e., 94+88+92+90 = 364.

The percentage will be 91%

Now, the effective percentage for B.A (Hons) English is 91%. B.Com (Hons) is 91% and B.A. (Hons) History is 91%. Deduct 2.5 from the percentage, and the final percentage will be 88.5%.

Example 2: -

Let us assume that you are seeking admission to B.Com programme. You have scored the following marks in different subjects: -

  • Economics – 94
  • English – 88
  • Business Studies – 92
  • Accounts – 90

Now, you need to add the total marks, i.e., 94+88+92+90 = 364.

The percentage will be 91%

The effective percentage for B.Com is 91%

For B.A. programme 91% - 5% = 86%
