The below examples will give you a better idea –

Example 1

Marks Obtained in Mathematics out of 100

Marks Obtained in Physics out of 100

To prepare the rank list, the above score is calculated as follows –

The marks obtained in each subject have to be converted into 50 to obtain the aggregate marks.

Candidate A Aggregate Marks Calculation

Mathematics

80/100X50 = 40

Physics

75/100X50 = 37.5

Chemistry

85/100X50 = 42.5

Biology

90/100X50 = 45

Total Aggregate Marks

40+37.5+42.5+45 = 165

Candidate B Aggregate Marks Calculation

Mathematics

70/100X50 = 35

Physics

80/100X50 = 40

Chemistry

65/100X50 = 32.5

Biology

80/100X50 = 40

Total Aggregate Marks

40+37.5+42.5+45 = 147.5

As per the above calculation, the aggregate marks of the candidates are calculated. Based on the aggregate marks, the rank will be allocated.
