UHS Merit Calculation Formula for session 2016-17

(i) After the declaration of official result of the Entrance Test, the
admission process for public sector medical and dental colleges will
start as per notified schedule.
(ii) The merit shall be worked out as per the regulations of Pakistan
Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), and shall be based on the
aggregate percentage of the candidates worked out by adding the
marks in the following ratio:
Matriculation (SSC or Equivalent) – 10%
HSSC/F.Sc (Premedical or Equivalent) – 40%
Entrance Test – 50%
(iii) The Formula for calculation of merit is as follows:
Marks obtained in SSC /Equivalent x 1100 x 0.10 = 10% of SSC/Equivalent
Total marks of SSC/Equivalent
Marks obtained in HSSC /Equivalent x 1100 x 0.40 = 40% of HSSC/Equivalent
Total marks of HSSC/Equivalent
Marks obtained in Entrance Test /SAT II/MCAT x 1100 x 0.50 = 50% of Admission
Total marks of Entrance Test /SAT II/MCAT
10% SSC/Equivalent + 40% HSSC/Equivalent +50% Admission Test = Aggregate
Aggregate Marks x 100 = Aggregate Percentage
Example 1 :
Marks obtained in Matriculation = 992 / 1050
Marks obtained in HSSC/FSc = 980 / 1100
Marks obtained in Entrance Test = 970 / 1100
By applying the aforementioned formula:
992 / 1050 x 1100 x 0.10 = 103.92
980/1100 x 1100 x 0.40 = 392
970/1100 x 1100 x 0.50 = 485
Aggregate Marks = 103.92 + 392 + 485 = 980.92
Aggregate Percentage = 980.92 / 1100 x 100 = 89.1745


Example 2 :

Equivalence of O-Level = 812/900
Equivalence of A-Level = 925/1100
SAT II Score = 2100/2400
812/900 x 1100 x 0.10 = 99.24
925/1100 x 1100 x 0.40 = 370
2100/2400 x 1100 x0.50 = 481.25
Aggregate Marks = 99.24 + 370 + 481.25 = 950.49
Aggregate Percentage = 950.49/1100 x 100 = 86.4081
