The Week has a unique way of scoring. It follows a formula as stated below:

  • Perceptual score was calculated based on the number of nominations and the actual ranks received.
  • Factual score was calculated using the information collected from the colleges. This included age, accreditation and infrastructure, faculty, placements, extracurricular activities, entry standard, teaching-learning process, and (for medicine and dental) hospital association.
  • Composite score = Perceptual score (out of 600) + factual score (out of 400) 

Some colleges could not respond to the survey. For them, composite score was derived by combining the perceptual score with an interpolated factual score based on their position in the perceptual score list.
