Can anyone tell me how much marks i need to score in GPAT to get admission in BHU (Pharmaceutics) for M Pharmacy or in BIT (Mishra)..?

Deepshikha Student Expert 8th Apr, 2020
National Testing Agency (NTA) has declared the GPAT 2020 cutoff along with the GPAT result by February 4.
GPAT cutoff scores 2020 for General category candidates is 163, while for OBC-NCL, it is 131. GPAT cutoff 2020 scores for EWS is 104, and for SC and ST, it is 103 and 76, respectively.
The exact prediction of cutoff for bhu and bit is not possible because the cutoff changes every year depending upon the difficulty level of the examination,the number of candidates appearing in the examination and the category of candidates etcetra.
Those candidates who will be shortlisted in the merit list will be called to attend the counselling procedure at the participating institutes.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
