Checking the cutoff to assess your chances
When sorting the colleges for admission, the candidates must also check the minimum marks needed for admission to these colleges in the chosen discipline. This way they will be able to greatly increase their strike rate. Generally, the cutoff tends to be high for higher ranked institutes like Jadavpur University. Further, if you go for popular disciplines like 'computer science', the cutoff rank could be very high – the cutoff rank for admission to the discipline at Jadavpur University in 2017 for open category was 153. The WBJEE cutoff is category-specific, so candidates must consider this point when consulting the cutoff tables.
