my cusat cat level is 2310.can i get into cusat for integrated msc in physics,chemistry or maths

Srinja Dhar Student Expert 20th Jul, 2019

Hello Sandra.


Well I am sorry but with this rank you will not be able to get into CUSAT. The cutoffs for your preferred branches don't usually cross 1000 even for the reserved categories so a rank of 2310 doesn't come into consideration.

Maybe you should give it a shot in the next year or go for other alternatives this year.


Hope that helped.
