Calculate your best of four!
Below is the procedure to calculate the best of four marks:
Take for example, if you are seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and scored the given marks: Accounts (90), Business Studies (92), English (88) and Economics (94). Then his total marks are 90+92+88+94=364 and effective percentage is 91%, which will be the best of four marks.
As per admission guidelines, the university if a student who has not studied a subject in class XII but wants to study it at the undergraduate level then there would be a deduction of 2% from the aggregate of best-four subjects.
For example: If you are seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied: Physics (96), Chemistry (92), English (90) and Mathematics (94). Then your total marks are 96+92+90+94=372 and Percentage is 93%. But, effective percentage is 93-2 = 91%
In case a candidate has not studied three elective subjects, then 10 marks will be deducted from each non-elective subject(s) to be included for the calculation of Best of Four percentage.
For example: If you are seeking admission in Honours in Commerce and Studied: Accounts (88), Entrepreneurship (92), English (90) and Web Designing (94). Then, your total marks are 88+92+90+96=366 and Percentage is 91.5%. But your effective marks will be 88+82(92-10)+90+84(94-10)=344 and effective Percentage will stand at 86%.

Then total marks are 90+92+88+94=364, and Percentage is 91%. But your effective marks are 90+92+88+84(94-10) = 354 and effective Percentage will be 88.5%.

Hello Anurag, Yes these three subjects are fine but you need to add one more subject in order to complete the best of four percentage. The rule is that you need one subject related to the course you are applying for, one language course(most of the students have english) and other two courses you can select as any two subjects with maximum marks.
Hello Anurag, No, you can't get admission in BTech course only on the basis of 12th class marks. Giving the entrance test is compulsory. Giving entrance test is compulsory for the following courses:
If you are aiming for doing Btech, then your only choice is to give JEE exam as it is the only option you have. So I suggest you should fill up the form for JEE. It is going to be conducted in January 22, 2019. The next attempt will be in April, 2020. The complete details are here:
If you are aiming for some other course, do let me know in the comments. I'll help you out.
