Default Graduation date and the match

Hello Seniors,
I have a query regarding 5 yr graduation filter.
Suppose somebody to go through 2015 match, applying this 2014sept,
Year of graduation being 2009, is the candidate going to face "cut off" ?

Default Calculation

I still have this doubt about calculation. I went through many past posts in the forum. I did not understand the cutoff calculation.
In this case, say date of graduation is November 2009 , is it going to be calculated from '2009 to 2014' or 2009 to 2015?
In case, it is 2009 to 2014:
As the candidate applies in month of September 2014, and it's 4 yrs 10 months , what would be the 'cut off ' status?

Call the PC from the programs you want to apply. Each program has a different system and counts yogs in a different way.

There are different cut off for different programs....
The best way is to contact the individual programmes. .
Some may never accept old img ,,, but some may be fine with it may be family medicine programmes or psychitry.
You can't generalise it for all....!!
But you will have some chances for sure. ...!!
