      UPCET 2021 (UPSEE) Tie-Breaking Policy

      If the UPCET 2021 Marks of two or more candidates are equal, NTA will use the UPCET 2021 Tie-Breaking Policy to determine which candidate gets a higher position on the merit list. The tie-breaking policy contains certain rules based on which preference will be given to two or more candidates who have scored equal marks in UPCET 2021. Here are the details.

      Step 1: Percentage of Incorrect Answers

      NTA will check the percentage of incorrect answers given by the candidates. The candidate who has a lower percentage of incorrect answers will be given higher merit.

      Step 2: Section-Wise Score and/ or Age

      If the first step is not able to break the tie, NTA will check the section-wise scores of relevant sections in UPCET 2021 and/ or the age of the candidate for determining preference. The rules vary as per the course chosen by the candidates and can be found in the following table.

      Course

      Tie-Breaking Rule

      BPharm

      1. Higher marks obtained in the Biology, Chemistry sections of the exam.
      2. Age

      Integrated MCA

      1. Higher marks obtained in the Maths/ Statistics/ Accountancy section of the exam.
      2. Higher marks obtained in Logical Reasoning.
      3. Age

      BBA/ BHMCT/ BFA/ BFAD/ BVoc/ MBA/ Integrated MBA/ MCA/  MTech/ MSc/ Laterl Entry

      1. By age only.

      Candidates who are older are given a higher preference by age in UPCET 2021.

      Step 3: Application Number

      If the first two steps are not able to break the tie, NTA will use the UPCET 2021 Application Number to do so. Candidates who have a lower application number will be placed higher on the merit list. Hence, a candidate who has applied earlier than others will be given preference in the event of a tie reaching the third stage.

      UPCET 2021 (UPSEE) Qualifying Marks

      The minimum marks required by the candidates appearing in UPCET 2021 to be considered for the merit list are known as UPCET 2021 qualifying marks. The category-wise qualifying marks for UPCET 2021 are as follows.

      Sir, I was allotted a seat in the UPSEE first round counseling, but I had to float it. Now for the second round, I am allotted a second seat. I have to float again So will my first seat cancel? Or it will be the seat I chose for the second time?

      Dear Student,

      For the UPSEE Counselling, the seat which has a higher ranking will be allotted to you. That means if the seat allotted to you in the second round has a higher ranking than the first round, it will be allotted to you and vice versa. If you are satisfied with the allotted seat, you can pay the acceptance fee or go for the float option if you still want to participate in the third round of counseling.

      Dear Student, 

      Yes, you don't need to lock your choices again if you have already done it for the first round of UPSEE Counselling. However, if you have made some changes to your choices after the first round, then you need to lock your choices again. For this, you can visit the official website or read UPSEE Counselling 2020 which will help you through the process in detail.
