Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 28th Feb, 2020


see cutoff score depends on various factors like number of participants, questions difficulty level, seat matrix etc. at this rank you have moderate chances for jadavpur university since in west bengal there is less colleges for master of pharmacy course.

I would suggest you to also apply for some other institute as well.
