Karnataka pgcet 2020 admit card has been released yet? Because in notification it says on 27th of July... But I couldnt get links to download and there is no any further information regarding that.. Can you please tell me whether it has been released or not?
I have comleted my B.Tech this year. I have been solving previous year question papers of Karnataka PGCET, and got marks between 35-45. now with this marks, how much rank can i expect in pgcet 2020. or if not possible to predict, what could it be if i score the same marks in PGCET 2019.
If you have score between 35-45 then your rank could vary between 12000 to 14000. This could vary but you could expect your rank to be under 15000.
For better colleges you should try to score more .
For more details about PGCET you can refer to
You also have previous years cut offs. You can check and see how much you need to score.
