There will be no separate category-wise rank lists. However, cut-off marks for each category will be mentioned in the rank list.

If the total marks scored by two or more candidates are same, then the following tie-break policy will be used for awarding ranks:
i. A Higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Section B.
ii. If this does not break the tie, the higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Section A.
iii. If there is a tie even after this, candidates will be assigned the same rank.

Only candidates who score the minimum prescribed marks in each Section of the question paper and minimum total marks will be included in the rank list. The minimum prescribed marks vary with the category. These are as shown in the following table.
