IAPT NSEP 2014 Eligibility
a) Eligibility Clause : To be eligible for the Stage II INO exam leading to the International Olympiad, a candidate must secure a score equal to or greater than a Minimum Admissible Score ( MAS ). The MAS for a given subject will be 50% of the average of the top ten scores in that subject rounded off to the nearest lower integer.
b) Proportional Representation Clause : Students from all States and UTs need to be encouraged to appear for the first stage examination and a nationwide representation for INO Stage II is desirable. The quota for each State/UT used in National Talent Search Examination ( NTSE ) 2013 – 14, a nationwide competitive examination will be used as the baseline for calculating the number of students qualifying for Stage II INO in each subject from centres in that State or UT.
Suppose the NTSE quota is S for a State, and the total for all States and UTs is T, then the total number of students to be selected to INO Stage II from that State would be S / T times 300, rounded off to the nearest higher integer. This number will include those selected on the basis of the Merit Index.
In the event of tie at the last position in the list, all students with same marks at this position will qualify to appear for the INO Stage II examination. The selected students must nevertheless satisfy the eligibility clause. The number to be selected from all the centres in each State or UT is available on the IAPT and HBCSE websites. ( www.iapt.org.in; http//olympiads.hbcse.tifr.res.in )
c) Minimum Representation Clause : Notwithstanding the proportional representation clause the number of students selected for INO from each State and UT must be at least one, provided that the eligibility clause is satisfied.
The above criteria are illustrated with the following examples:
(i) Let the quota on the basis of the Proportional Representation Clause (c) for a State SI be 20. Suppose the number of students satisfying the Merit Index Clause (b) in a subject is 10. These 10 students will qualify for the second stage INO exam in the given subject and an additional 10 students from the State SI in the given subject will be selected merit-wise, provided they satisfy the Eligibility Clause (a).
(ii) Let the quota on the basis of the Proportional Representation Clause (c) for a State SI be 20. Suppose the number of students satisfying the Merit Index Clause (b) in a subject is 30. In this case, all 30 students will qualify for the second stage INO exam in the given subject, and there will be no further selection from the State SI.
d) Merit Index Clause : There will be a high score called the Merit Index (MI ) associated with each subject in Olympiads. The MI in a subject is defined as 80% of the average of the top ten scores in that subject rounded off to the nearest lower integer. All students with a score greater than or equal to the merit index MI for the subject will automatically qualify for INO Stage II examination in that subject. For example, if the average of top ten scores in a certain subject is 92, then 80% of this is 73.6. Then the MI in that subject will be 73. All candidates with a score equal to or above 73 in that subject will automatically qualify for INO stage II.
