How Does the Council Prepare the ANM Rank List?

It is very important for the candidates to understand the mechanism used in preparing the Goa ANM Merit List 2021. As there is no entrance exam for admission into the Goa nursing course. Therefore, the council members evaluate the aggregate marks of the candidates in the class 12th exam. The candidates who score good marks in the preferable subjects are eligible for admission into ANM Course in Goa. Also, there are two types of Merit List available- Overall Merit List and Category-Wise Merit List. The ANM List 2021 contains the name of the candidate, rank of the candidate, and the aggregate marks on the basis of which candidate is selected.

However, there is also the second and third round merit list. This totally depends upon the availability of the seats in the nursing institute. The Institute of Nursing Education, Goa, offers only 40 seats for the ANM course, for each academic year. Therefore, one should analyze the probability of getting selected in the college, by the percentage marks they score in aggregate. The preparation of the Goa ANM Rank List 2021 also depends upon many other factors. For example, the age of the candidates, their marks scored in the preferable subjects, etc. also play a vital role in deciding the rank list of the candidates.

Guidelines for Selection in the Merit List

There is no entrance exam for admission into the Goa ANM course. Therefore, the screening of the candidates is done on the basis of the aggregate marks in the previous qualifying examination. For example, candidates are enlisted in the ANM Rank List on the basis of their marks in class 12th. Their selection happens in the following order of merit:

  • Those having passed the qualifying examination in Science Stream are in the topmost preference.
  • Seats remaining vacant after selecting the candidates from the Science stream are filled in order of merit by the candidates having passed XII in the vocational stream: Course Health Care Science. However, the selection of vocational stream: Course Health Care Science is subject to approval from Goa Nursing Council.
  • Now,  even after this, if the seats remain vacant then the candidates from the Arts and Commerce Stream are given the preference.
  • Also, the most important thing to note is that Five marks are deducted from the total aggregate of marks for every attempt (maximum attempts permitted are three).

How the Additional Marks is Computed?

  • The additional number of marks are added to the total marks of those applicants who have represented in the Sports as per Government notification from time to time.
  • Five marks are added to the total marks to those applicants who have passed the “C” Certificate NCC examination 10 marks are added to the total marks to those applicants who are NCC Cadets and have represented Goa at the Republic Day parade in New Delhi.

Therefore, this is the usual order of selecting the candidates for admission into the ANM course in the state of Goa.
