About Cut Off Rank
The cutoff rank is only for the information of the students and no inference shall be drawn on the availability of
seats college wise and course wise for the year 2021-22. We do not take any responsibility whatsoever in this regard.
The cutoff ranks give a fair idea about the last rank under each category admitted to a particular college / course
during the previous year.
Do not exercise your options based on cut-off ranks. The options should be exercised purely based on the candidate
interest for college/course because cut-off ranks will not be same every year. And the candidate should make sure that
he/she has not missed out any college/course he/she wishes to take admission and the same is ordered according to the
The entire process of allotment is controlled by sophisticated software and high end computers which examine minutely
the options given by the candidates for allotment of the best possible seat to the candidate as per the rank and options
Therefore, it is very important that the candidate should be very clear about the choice of the course, discipline
which he is interested in.
For example, if a candidate is interested only in Medical seats then he can give all the options in all the colleges
for allotment of Medical seats only. If there are 53 Medical colleges and the candidates can give 53 options. The
computer will decide the best seat available for allotment as per the rank and order of options of the candidate.
Similarly, a candidate may be interested only in Engineering and there are about 200 Engineering Colleges and a
candidate is interested only in Electronic branch, then he can give his preference for Electronic course only in all the
colleges. The computer will pick up the best options available as per merit and order of options.
In other words, the candidate is free to give as many options in as many courses in as many colleges as he deems fit.
The more number of options the better it is for the candidate to secure a seat of his choice.
If a candidate is eligible for both Medical and Engineering discipline and his first desire is the Medical Stream then
in such case he has to give as much options as possible for Medical. The order of preference for Medical should be more
than other disciplines. The computer in such case will find the best options as per the rank and allot a seat to the
Likewise, if a candidate is interested only in Engineering he may skip the option of giving choice for Medical and
concentrate only on Engineering courses.
Even in Engineering stream if the candidate is particular about a particular course, then he has to give more options
for that particular course in his options.
The candidates are advised to gather information about the colleges, the courses offered, infrastructure available,
teaching faculty, laboratory facilities, hostel facilities and any other information which would help him / her in
narrowing his options. The distance from his / her house, the mode of transport, the hostel facilities and the
environment etc are also prime factors in deciding priority of options.
