I am getting 172 marks in ntse maharashtra stage 1 in general category. Will I qualify for national level?

Komal Dayanand Gardi 18th Nov, 2019

Hello Urmila, For Students , Cut off marks are calculated depending on some previous year cut off marks. Below is mention these expected marks for each category,

General          167-175

OBC                156-165

SC                    140+

ST                    120+

So as per these marks , your mentioned marks are within the range of cut off. so it has quite good chance for you to get in Stage 2 .

But still, these marks  are not fixed, because cut off changes every year depending on various factors. So i'll suggest you to wait till Final result.

I hope it will help you.
