Draft Merit List
Final Merit List
The exam conducting authority will release CENTAC 2020 cutoff within the merit list. CENTAC cutoff is the minimum normalised marks which every applicant need to score in order to be considered for admission. The normalised marks is calculated from Physics, Mathematics and one optional subject in which candidate has appeared which may include Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Technical Vocational Subjects etc. Students who will secure the marks more than or equal to CENTAC cutoff 2020 will be included in the merit list.
In order to evolve a common base for equating the marks obtained by the candidates from various Boards of Examination, “normalization procedure” is followed. The marks obtained by the students in the relevant subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by the various boards will be equated with the marks obtained by the students in the same subjects in the qualifying examination, conducted by the State Board (i.e. state Board of School Examinations, Tamil Nadu), by adopting the method of normalization.
For Example - If the highest marks secured by a student of the State Board, in Physics is 100 and the highest mark secured by a student of any other Board (say “X”), in the same subject is 90, then, both the highest marks will be considered to be equal to 100. If any other student of the other Board (i.e “X”), is 90, then, 60 marks secured by such a student will be considered to be equal to 66.667 marks as arrived at and given bellow: (100 x60) / 90 = 66.667% After normalization of marks of the eligible students of different Boards, in the relevant subjects, the “normalized marks” obtained shall be merged into a common merit list
The CENTAC will conduct online counselling for all candidates who will be eligible for seat allotment on the basis of merit list. Students whose name will appear in merit list will be required to fill choices of their college and branch and pay the counselling fees in online mode.
