Physics Percentile 100 x No. of candidates appeared from the session with raw score ≤ P1 score in Physics ÷ Total Number of candidates appeared in the session
Chemistry Percentile 100 x No. of candidates appeared from the session with raw score ≤ C1 score in Chemistry ÷ Total Number of candidates appeared in the session
Total Percentile  100 x No. of candidates appeared from the session with raw score ≤ T1 score ÷ Total Number of candidates appeared in the session
