    Current year’s Cut Off

    The cut off is the minimum qualifying marks that every candidate needs to score in order to qualify the examination. The cutoff is released by the exam conducting authority and is officially released after the examination. The cutoff is usually released with the result of the examination. Cut off is of significant importance since every candidate is required to secure the minimum marks in order to qualify. Cut off for a particular year varies on the number of candidates appearing for the examination, difficulty level of the exam, previous year trends, marking scheme of the exam and average marks secured by the candidates.

    The current year cut off is as follows:
