CGPA > 6.5 – 9.5 = 5 x (A – 6.5) / 3 = 8 x (B – 6.5) / 3 = 10 x (C – 6.5) / 3

Academic profile evaluation of SC and ST Category Students:

Format of Marks Range 10th 12th Undergraduate
Percentage > 55 – 85 = 5 x (A - 55) / 30 = 8 x (B - 55) / 30 = 10 x (C - 55) / 30
CGPA > 6.0 – 9.0 = 5 x (A – 6.0) / 3 = 8 x (B – 6.0) / 3 = 10 x (C – 6.0) / 3
