Candidates having more positive answers will be given a higher rank. In case the tie persists, the higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in mathematics. If the tie continues then the candidate having higher marks in physics will get a higher rank. If the tie continues then, both will be given the same rank.
