JIPMER MBBS Merit List 2017

The merit list will contain the names of all those candidates who were successful in scoring more than the cut-off marks. The names of the students who fail to secure the cut-off marks are not included in the merit list.

In the event of a tie between two or more candidates, the following methodology will be applied to determine their inter-se-merit:

  • Higher Percentile score in Biology will result in higher ranking.
  • If Biology Percentiles fail to break the tie, higher Percentile scores in Chemistry will result in higher ranking.
  • If Biology and Chemistry Percentiles do not break the tie, higher Percentile scores in Physics will result in higher ranking.
  • If Biology, Chemistry & Physics Percentiles do not break the tie, higher Percentile scores in English and Comprehension will result in higher ranking.
  • If the tie is still not broken then higher Percentile scores in Logical & Quantitative Reasoning will result in higher ranking.
  • If the tie still exists then the candidate senior in age will be given preference over the younger candidate.
