ginnisachdeva02_9364270 Student Expert 21st Feb, 2021


It is decided by counselling authoities to allot a seat to the candidate. And it depends on many factors such as rank obtained, marks secured and category. As you are from SC category, so you will be prefered over genral category candidates during seat allotment. As you are not alloted any seat in phase 1, this could possible that your rank was too much to get a seat in round 1. But don't worry, you will surely get a seat in the upcoming rounds.

colleges which accepts cpget score is as follows:

see every year cutoff score changes depends on number of participants, students category, choice of stream etc. so it is really difficult to predict college right now. so I would suggest you to also apply for others colleges other than osmania , which would gives more chances for admission in this year.
