The percentage marks shall be arrived at by dividing the total marks obtained by the candidate in all the subjects in all semester(s)/year(s) by aggregate maximum marks in all the subjects irrespective of honours/optional/additional optional subject, if any. This will be applicable for those Universities also where Class/Grade is decided on basis of Honours marks only. The fraction of percentage so arrived will be ignored i.e. 59.99% will be treated as less than 60%.

Hello Madam/Sir, please clear my doubt regarding this exam as the eigibility is 60% in graduation for the NICL AO. My aggregate percentage in graduation( B.E) is less than 60%, if i take the average of all 4 years marks. But my university (Dr. BAMU, Aurangabad) gives only final year marks on final graduation degree and i have scored 61% in final year. Which means on my original graduation degree it will be written 61% with first class but my aggregate percentage of graduation will be below 60%. So please tell me whether i am eligible or not for NICL AO. Thanks.
