Cse is the most highly and valuable stream in Jadavpur University. So the cut off is very high for it. But the cut offs are changed in every year. The change is depends on the question difficulty level,  the competition level and the seats availability.  As per the last year record for obc category the cut off rank was 456. So you have the chances to get a seat over there.

Hope for the best.
