  • If the above criterion fails, then the candidate with more marks in Chemistry will get the preference over the one with lesser marks. Even if these criteria fails, the candidates with the least number of wrong answers will be given the priority.
  • Age: If the tie still stands, then older the candidate will get the priority.
