Case 2 – If two candidates score equal also in compulsory papers and BPSC personality tests put together, the candidate who will be senior in age will be allotted a higher rank.
Case 3 – If two candidates who score equally in both compulsory papers and BPSC Interview; and also are same in age; then the candidate who would have secured more marks in only compulsory papers will be allotted a higher rank.
