cut off marks are the highest marks which are selected as cut off marks
if you score above or exact that much marks then you can get admission in the respective college after appearing in their counselling session ..

cutoff marks vary from year to year

as the people who appear in different year can have

different average IQ, so a more talented group will mean

higher cutoff that year

compared to an average pool in any other year

also difficulty level of papers is also not the same.

so if more students score good marks then cutoff is kept higher to

reject excess applicants to get only suitable no of candidates

according to the available seats.

Difference between cutoff marks and minimum qualifying marks
Do you have any question? or have anything to say?
