The GPAT 2020 cutoff is determined by a number of factors, such as:

  • The number of candidates appearing in the entrance exam

  • Total available seats

  • Difficulty level of the exam

  • The category under which admission is sought

Logically, if the number of seats increases in the entrance exam, GPAT 2020 cutoff for a particular list would come down, and go up if seats are decreased. Similarly, if the number of applicants increases, competition would rise, and so will be the cutoff.

those who cleared last year gpat 2019, if they give gpat 2020 and if they do not qualify which scorecard will be accepted - qualified one or the recent one?

Ronak Gala Student Expert 7th Dec, 2019

The recent scorescheet will only be considered. That is 2020 gpat score sheet will only be relevant for your admission to colleges.

As of now what I can tell you is that if you are preparing and aiming to crack GPat 2020, then stay positive as of now and don't think such negative things as it will bring your morale down and also waste your studies time.

So best wishes. Thank you.
