which Marks do they consider in NIMCET ? whether they consider for 480 or they consider for 1000...on which basis they give rank and how much should i score to get NIT Trichy

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 6th Nov, 2019


Total marks for NIMCET is 480. They have different section subject wise. each subject contributes a part of mark to the total marks.

  1. Mathematics:- No. of questions:- 50, marks:- 200
  2. Analytical Ability and logical reasoning:- 40,160
  3. Computer Awareness:- 10,40
  4. general English:- 20,80

Qualifying criteria:-

The total weightage kept is 1000. Each section has a factor which contributes to the weightage. Here is the list:-

  1. English-1
  2. Analytical ability and logical reasoning- 1.5
  3. Computer awareness:-2
  4. Mathematics:- 3

These factors will be multiplied with score obtained in each section. This score will help you to get a rank. the higher you score in all the section higher will be the rank.

Try to get as high as possible. There is no such cut to straight value to say as lots of candidates are there and a 1 mark will make a  big difference. so just be patient and prepare and practice regularlly such that you can solve any problem given to you.

Hope it helps!
