The merit shall be determined on the basis of academic record and performance in the written test. The formula for calculating merit shall be as under: -30:70 i.e. 30% weightage to the Matriculation marks and 70% weightage to the Intermediate Part-I marks.
Merit = (MOM/TM) x30 + (MOF/TM) x70
MOM = Marks obtained in Matric or equivalent
MOF = Marks obtained in FA/FSc/Part-I or equivalent
TM = Total Marks in the relevant Examination
