The authorities will conduct MHT CET 2020 in multiples shifts. This means different sessions and question papers for all candidates. To maintain equivalence, a normalization procedure will be incorporated to determine the scores and ranks of the candidates who have qualified in the exam. Scores of the candidates will be declared in form of percentile scores ranging from 0 to 100. These scores are based on the relative performance of all candidates who appeared for MHT CET 2020. The MHT CET 2020 topper will get 100 percentile. There may be more than one candidate who may get a score of 100 percentile. In such a case the tie breaker methodology wil be used to declare the MHT CET 2020 ranks. The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores will also be converted to appropriate percentiles. Candidates with lowest scores will get a percentile score of 0. The MHT CET percentile scores of candidates will be calculated upto five decimal places. The score of MHT CET 2020 can be calculated by using the below mentioned formula:
MHT CET Percentile Score = 100 * (Number of candidates in exam with normalized marks ≤ the candidate) ÷ Total number of candidates in the exam.
Candidate can understand the conversion with below mentioned example
For example in MHT CET PCM in which 276166 students appeared for the exam. To calculate the MHT CET rank 2020 rank, you first need to know the percentage of people ahead of you with higher percentile scores. To calculate that, the formula would be 100 which is the highest score minus your percentile score.
Since the percentile is calculated from a scale ranging from 100 to 0, the formula applies the total number of students which is 276166 /100 multiplied by the percentage of people who are ahead of you to arrive at the rank.
Therefore, the formula to calculate the rank is
Probable Rank = (100- percentile score) X 276166 /100
If percentile score is 90.70, rank will be (100-90.70) X 276166/100 = 25683
