Nikhitha Sai 18th Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant. Since boards have taken off the Mark's thing, we cannot tell the qualifying mark or cut off mark. We can be able to tell the cut off percentile. But based on percentile to mark estimation, I would provide the mark in the side too.

Here it is for 2019

1. General -89.8 - 85 to 91 marks

2.general EWS -78.2 - 78 to 83 Mark's

3. OBC - 74.3 - 72 to 77 marks

4. SC- 54 - 51 to 55 marks

5. ST- 44.3  39 to 44 Mark's

6. PWD -0.1
