Sir..my marks in punjab ntse stage 1 are 141 and my name is not in selected candidates list whereas many candidates scoring below 140 are selected for stage 2 . Why is it so??

Manish Singh 19th Feb, 2020

Charu, I am sorry you are not in the list. The reason for people below your marks getting there name in the list can be due their reservation category or some other reservation provided to them like EWS that is economic backward classes reservation. So it's due to that they got the name in the list. I hope you make it in the third round
