Example: You scored 70 in your entry test and your Inter percentage is 60%
Then the calculation will be like this:-
60% x 70 = 42
Now 42 is rounded off to 40 which means now your score is 40%
Now this number 40% is multiplied by 60 (Inter percentage)
40% x 60 = 24
Now both the deduced numbers are added.
Total = 42 + 24 = 66
It means you scored 66% in the aptitude test and on this basis you will be granted admission.
