what will be the cut off of EWS category?

Goutam Rao 24th Mar, 2020

Dear sir,

General category cutoff for 2018 prelims was 98.00. If we assume same for 2019 prelim, EWS seats will be filled only and only after general 40% seats are filled. if General cutoff is 100. it can be 99 or 98 or 0 but never greater than 100.

Thanking you

How many marks are required in jkcet to get gcet jammu in cs branch( genral catagory)?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 13th Mar, 2020


see cutoff score changes year to year and it depends on various factors like number of participants, questions difficulty level, number of participants, etc. however from the previous years score information, general category students need to rank with in 500 to get a seat in computer science department, since computer science is the most demanding subjects right now. so try to score  80% marks in jkcet.
