when will andhrapradesh NTSC STAGE -1 results will announce. what is the cut off for gen/obc/sc/st.pl inform
AP NTSE stage 1 result was supposed to be out in the month of April 2021 but it has been delayed by a bit. The results will be declared anytime soon. The official date for the announcement of the results is yet to be notified. It is difficult to predict the cut off as it depends on the total number of candidates appeared, highest marks scored in the exam, lowest marks scored in the exam, previous year cut off etc. These are the factors that determines the cut off. Here is the previous year cut off category wise for AP NTSE Stage 1
- General: 167
- SC: 146
- ST: 143
- OBC-NCL: 158
- EWS: 155
- PH: 68
The cut off may slightly increase or decrease depending on the above mentioned factors. Please check for the updates regularly so that you will not miss any important information. To check the information related to AP NTSE 2021 click on the link below
According to the details given by you for NTSE the result should be released in last week of April but, its 3rd May now, but there is no update about the results..!! whats going on..?? if you cant provide the exact details then dont post such wrong information..!!
NTSE (National Talent Search Exam), this is a national level exam and this exam was conducted and dates for the exam varies from State to State. Till now only one state i.e. Karnataka has declared the NTSE Result for Karnataka state only, it was released by KSEEB.
