Calculation of MHT CET 2020 Result

The MHT CET entrance examinations will be conducted in multiple shifts which bring out the possibility of difference in difficulty level of question papers sets.

Some candidates may get a relatively tougher set of MHT CET 2020 question papers. In such a case, those candidates who attempt the tougher set of question paper will be able to secure fewer marks compared to the ones who attempted the easier set.

To make sure, the candidates are neither benefitted nor disadvantaged due to the difficulty level of the question paper sets, Normalization method of calculating marks is employed for fair marking practice. A similar method of calculating marks is also employed in several other major entrance examinations such as JEE.

How to Calculate MHT CET 2020 Percentile Score

Based on the candidates’ relative performance appearing for the MHT CET 2020 entrance exam, the authorities will prepare percentile scores. The marks secured by the candidates will be transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0. The percentile scores will reflect the percentage of candidates who have scored less than that particular examination score. The percentile score will be calculated up to 5 decimal points to minimum ties.

With the help of the following formula, the Percentile Score of the candidate will be calculated:

(Number of Candidates in Exam with Normalized Marks < The Candidate) *100/The Total Number of candidates in the Exam – Number of Toppers in the Shift

NotePercentage of Marks obtained by the candidates will be different from the Percentile Score.

MHT-CET 2020 Merit List
