Award of Marks
Each correctly answered question will carry FOUR marks and each wrongly answered question will lead to NEGATIVE ONE mark.
• The candidates are advised not to attempt such questions if they are not sure of the correct answer. No deduction from the total score will, however, be made if a question is unanswered.
• More than one answer indicated against a question will be negatively marked.
• The candidates have to mark the responses in the OMR sheet using black or blue ink ball point pen only.
Qualifying Criteria for Allotment of Rank
A Candidate securing zero or negative marks either in Mathematics or Total Marks in NIMCET2020 test will be disqualified.
Based on the marks obtained by a qualified candidate in NIMCET2020 test, a rank will be allotted by adopting the following criteria.

The marks obtained in Mathematics, Analytical Ability & Logical Reasoning, Computer Awareness, English, will be multiplied by a factor of 3, 1.5 , 2 and 1 respectively. Thus maximum weighted marks will be 1000.
 Ranking will be based on total weighted marks obtained by a candidate.

In case of a tie, it will be resolved based on weighted marks in Mathematics, then on weighted marks in Analytical Ability & Logical reasoning and then on weighted marks in Computer Awareness

In case the tie is not resolved by the above criteria stated in the above paragraph, then it will be resolved by age i.e., in favour of elder candidate.
Ranks secured by candidates in the NIMCET2020 test will be made available in the website
https://www.nimcet.in
