    3. Any two other academic/elective  subjects (as defined earlier)

     

    Note:

    1. If a candidate has not studied the subject in which he/she is seeking admission in the Discipline I, then a disadvantage of 2% may be imposed on the calculated Best of Four percentage.
    2. The colleges will have to consider only the academic/elective subject for calculation of Best of Four percentage if the candidate has studied at least four academic/elective subjects or one language and three academic/elective subjects.
    3. In case a candidate has not studied three academic/elective subjects, then a disadvantage of 10% of the maximum marks may be levied on each such non-elective subject(s) to be included for the calculation of Best of Four percentage. 
    4. In case a candidate has studied three academic/elective subjects but wishes to include the percentage of non-elective subject(s) for the calculation of Best of Four, then a disadvantage of 10% of the maximum marks may be levied on each such non-elective subject(s) to be included for the calculation of Best of Four percentage.   
    5. All the academic/elective subjects should have 70% component of theory exams (theory exam does not include internal assessment/continuous evaluation etc.). Otherwise these will be treated as non-elective subject.
    6. In case a candidate has studied both elective and core in any languages, then core language will be treated as language, while elective language can be considered as academic/elective subject. 
  6. For admission to Honours in any language course, advantage of 2% in the Best of Four percentage may be given to those candidates who have studied the elective language.2% disadvantage in the Best of Four percentage may be given to those who have studied functional language only. In case, a candidate has not studied the language at qualifying exam and is seeking admission in Honours in that language, he/she may be given a disadvantage of 5% in Best of Four percentage. However, for admission to Honours in English and Hindi, the candidate must have studied the respective language and has to be included for calculation of Best of Four percentage.

    Examples for calculation of ‘Best of Four percentage’ are given below.


    Example 1:
    If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied:  Accounts (90), Business Studies (92), English (88) and Economics (94). Then his total marks are 90+92+88+94=364 and effective percentage  is 91%

    Example 2:
    If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied: Physics (96), Chemistry (92), English (90) and Mathematics (94). Then his total marks are 96+92+90+94=372 and Percentage 93%. But Effective Percentage is 93-2 = 91%

    Example 3:
    If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied: Accounts (88), Entrepreneurship (92), English(90) and Web Designing (94). Then, his total marks are 88+92+90+96=366, Percentage is 91.5%. But Effective marks are 88+82(92-10)+90+84(94-10)=344 and effective Percentage is 86%.

    Example 4:
    If a candidate is seeking admission in Honours in English and Studied:  Accounts (90), Business Studies (92), English (88) and Home Science (94). Then total marks are 90+92+88+94=364, and Percentage is 91%. But effective marks are  90+92+88+84(94-10) = 354 and effective Percentage is 88.5%.

  7. The candidates must have studied mathematics at the qualifying exam for admission to Honours in Economics.
