[For example: A student has passed the Higher Secondary Examination with following scores:
Language I – 60
Language II – 81
Political Science – 68
Geography – 82
History – 62
EVS – 88 (not an Elective Subject)
 
Now the calculation of percentage shall be made on the basis of the best five scores, e.g. {(82+81+74+68+62)/5} = 367/5 = 73.4% Notable: The marks of EVS which is not an Elective Subject, has not been taken for calculation of percentage. 
 
Note : For determination of minimum eligibility the Grand Total marks (where applicable) will be converted into percentage. In such cases 500 (five hundred) or 450 (four hundred fifty) (as the case may be) out of 1000 (one thousand) shall mean 50 percent or 45 percent respectively.
