      Shobhna Chaturvedi

      Hi Manvi, this will depend on the college you are applying for. As the university declares cut off marks for various branches and categories individually for each college, you will have to check in which college your marks match the cut off for the concerned course. First merit list was to be declared today itself i.e. June 20, 2019 (tentatively).
