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.
