What is the concept of 1:15 ratio of ASRB entrance exam?

I have taken ASRB Prelims exam in Agricultural Biotechnology. I am confident that I would clear the exam. Will I be called for appearing in the Mains exam as well? I am unable to understand the 1:15 ratio concept. Will I not be allowed to appear for for ASRB Mains if I have cleared the Prelims but could not manage to be selected according to the 1:15 ratio rule? Please reply and oblige.

For ASRB exam,you have to obtain the following minimum qualifying marks in the Preliminary Examination.

If you obtain the minimum marks then you will be allowed to appear in the ARS (Mains) Examination in the ratio of 1:15 (category-wise) for each post.

However remember that the Board reserves the right to fix/alter the qualifying marks and ratio in any or all Disciplines at its discretion.

Normally ASRB will adopt equi-percentile to calculate score of the prelims exam and to decide the number of qualified candidates for each disciplines as per category.

The cutoff of ASRB NET for year 2017 as per different categories are provided in the table below -->

Category Minimum qualifying marks
Un-reserved (UR) 67.5 (45%)
OBC 60.0 (40%)
SC / ST/ Divyang 52.5 (35%)

Do you have any question? or have anything to say?
