b. Those who qualify on the Psychometric test will be assessed for MICAT sections on Verbal Ability, Quantitative Ability, General Awareness and Divergent-Convergent Reasoning.

c. Those who qualify on the basis of relative performance subject to a minimum cut-off in each of the sections namely: Verbal ability, Quantitative ability, General awareness and Divergent-Convergent Reasoning shall be evaluated on Descriptive Test.

d. Those who qualify in psychometric and on the basis of relative performance in b) and c) subject to a minimum cut-off in each of the sections will be shortlisted for GE and PI.

GE and PI

MICAT: 50%
GE: 20%
PI: 30%
