Dear All applicants,

FTII Entrance exam result is declared on 17th May 2019. There is confusion about:- Percentage vs Percentile.

we all know about the percentage, but one should be clear about percentile, hence this explanation. Please feel free to write, if you have any query at naresh.sharma@craftfilmschool.com

As per the page no- 36/53-page Prospectus of FTII .pdf file ..it is stated that

19. For all Diploma & Certificate courses except for Acting, General and OBC (NCL) candidates will be short-listed for orientation and Interview in 1:3 ratio and SC / ST candidates will be short-listed in 1:5 ratio based on the written examination merit list.

20. For Diploma course in Acting, initially General and OBC(NCL) candidates will be short-listed for Audition in 1:6 ratio and SC / ST candidates will be shortlisted in 1:10 ratio based on the written examination merit list. Further, based on written examination & Audition marks, General and OBC(NCL) candidates will be short-listed in 1:3 ratio and SC / ST candidates will be short-listed in 1:5 ratio for Orientation and interview.

**Percentile is calculated as follows:**

(No. of candidates behind you)/(total number of candidates)× 100

For example, to have your rank be 50 and if the total number of candidates were 1250, who took the exam . This means 1200 candidates are behind you (1250–50=1200) So your percentile according to the formula is: (1200/1250)×100= 96 percentile.

For Receiving the call for FTII it is percentile, which is more important as of Now. Later on after the orientation, your Individual score will be taken into consideration as well .

**For acting course : **

**For the General category, ****students to get a call for an audition is in the ratio of 1:6** . This year total applications received were 1981 by FTII pune. I am assuming that 81 students did not paper in the exam,and if 1900 students appeared in the exam in total.

**Assumption 1)** Out Of this again, i am assuming that Gen category students were 1500, to receive a call your rank has to be among Top 30 for the 5 Seats (call ratio 1:6.) which means your percentile should be more than

1470 x100 / 1500 = 98 percentile

**Assumption 2)** Assuming that Gen category students were 1400, to receive a call your rank has to be among Top 30 for the 5 Seats (call ratio 1:6.) which means your percentile should be

1370 x100 /1400 = 97.8 percentile

**Assumption 3)** Assuming that Gen category students were 1300, to receive a call your rank has to be among Top 30 for the 5 Seats (call ratio 1:6.) which means your percentile should be more than

1270 x100/1300 = 97.6 percentile

**Assumption 4)** Assuming that Gen category students were 1200, to receive a call your rank has to be among Top 30 for the 5 Seats (call ratio 1:6.) which means your percentile should be more than

1170 x100 /1200 = 97.5 percentile.....................................................................................

**For SC - / ST CANDIDATES**** **for acting course ,to get a call for an audition in the ratio of 1:10. ...........So OUT OF TOTAL 1981, i am assuming that SC candidates who appeared in the acting entrance exams can have 4-possibilities.

Assumption 1) i am assuming that SC category students were 100, to receive a call for the 1 Seats (call ratio 1:10 .) which means your percentile should be more than

90 x100 /100= 90 percentile

Assumption 2) i am assuming that SC category students were 200, to receive a call for the 1 Seats (call ratio 1:10 .) which means your percentile should be more than

190 x100/200 = 95 percentile

Assumption 2) i am assuming that SC category students were 300, to receive a call for the 1 Seats (call ratio 1:10 .) which means your percentile should be more than

290 x100/300 = 96.66 percentile

**For OBC CATEGORY:** There are 3 Seats in this category. Hence to expect a call for an audition, **students to** get a

call ratio for an audition in this category is 1:6 .To get an audition call in this category, Your rank has to be among the top 18 students. Here are the following Possibilities

Assumption 1) I am assuming that in the OBC category, No of students who appeared in the examination was 400. To receive a call for AUDITION for the 3 Seats (call ratio 1:6 .) your percentile should be more than

382 x100 /400= 95.5 percentile
