KCET Cutoff 2024 - How will it be Calculated? Courses, Counseling, and More

KCET Cutoff 2024

The KCET 2024 cutoff will be available on the official website. It's important for candidates to check it to see the qualifying marks for KCET 2024. Your rank in the Karnataka UGCET 2024 will depend on your marks. The closing rank is the lowest score for passing KCET 2024. You can also look at previous years' cutoffs from 2016 to 2023.

How the KCET Cutoff will be Calculated?

The KCET cutoff for 2024 will be determined based on several factors. These include the number of candidates who appeared for the exam, the availability of seats, and other related aspects.

For instance, to pass the KCET exam in 2024, general category candidates need to score at least 50% of the total marks, which is 180 out of 360 marks. Meanwhile, candidates in the reserved category must achieve a minimum of 40% of the total marks, which is 80 marks out of 200. However, these passing marks can vary due to factors like the difficulty level of the exam and the number of available seats.

Ultimately, the admission authority will use these factors to determine the cutoff marks for KCET 2024. Candidates who meet or exceed these cutoff marks will be included in the KCET merit list and will be considered for admission based on their ranking.
