Sir Gpat me selection ke liye sc walo ko kitna no. Lana hota hi or kitna question solve karna hota hi

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 16th Feb, 2020


see cutoff score varies from institute to institute and it changes every year depends on soma facts like number of participants, questions difficulty level , seat matrix etc.

now gpat is total marks of 500 , and the number of questions is 125, so if you get 300+ out of 500, you have decent chances for tier 1 colleges.

hope you may understand.

If you have filled your category as general EWS while filling the application form you need to provide valid EWS category certificate at the time of counselling.And GPAT score is necessary to get admission through NIPER.So your category should match in both the application form.Because qualifying marks for each category will be different.When you qualified GPAT under EWS cut off that score is considered during NIPER counselling.Whether or not you have qualified under general category cut off you need to provide EWS certificate as per the details you have filled in online application form.
