Sir I have got 152 marks in Punjab Ntse. I belong to general category. But my name is not there in selected students list.

Sujatha Venkat 18th Feb, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Sorry to hear that you are not selected. In this selection procedure they take the top students only. I mean there will be many people who might have scored more than the cut off,at that time there will be a limit to the selection procedure so they take according to that count only. In that the top students will be shortlisted. You might have qualified but not selected because of more competition and more students above you. Hope this is useful
