The marks of CET and Qualifying examination will be apportioned in the ratio of 50:50.
The marks obtained for the qualifying exam will be subjected to normalization process as explained below: This process will be done taking into consideration only the marks of those candidates who apply pursuant to this prospectus.
 The marks obtained by the students in the relevant subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by various boards or authority shall be equated with marks obtained by the students in the same subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by the Director of HSC, Kerala, by adopting the method of normalisation.
Explanation: - Under the method of normalisation, the highest marks obtained by the students of the Kerala Higher Secondary Examination in the subject and the relative marks obtained by other students in that subject shall be determined accordingly.
Illustration: - If the highest mark secured by the student of the Kerala State HSC, in Physics is 100 and the highest marks secured by a student of any other board in the same subject is 90, both the highest marks will be considered to be equal to 100. If a student of the other board secures 60 marks in Physics when the highest mark in Physics in the same board is 90, the 60 marks will be considered to be equal to 66.66 marks as arrived at below.
