Which category do you belong to?
As you have not mentioned the category you belong to, so I am assuming you from general category
This is difficult to predict whether you will be able to qualify NTSE stage 1 examination or not as qualifying cut off marks or not as cut off marks depends upon a number of factors like
* number of students that appeared in the ntse exam,
*kind of marks obtained by them in ntse examination,
*toughness level of the ntse examination etc.
When we go through previous year trends then,
NTSE kerela stage 1, 2021 expected cut off is provided below for different categories:-
* General: - 145 - 155 Marks
* OBC : - 130 - 140 Marks
* Scheduled Caste: - 105 - 115 Marks

with 155 to 162 marks in your NTSE stage 1 you have good chances to qualify it and to be eligible for stage 2 as expected cutoff for general category is 145 - 155 Marks.
Your NTSE Kerala stage 1 cut off marks along with result will be declared in last week of February on its official website i. e scert.kerala.gov.in (http://scert.kerala.gov.in)
From analysing the previous year cutoffs for both stage 1 and stage 2, the approximate cutoff for stage 1 in NTSE is around 145 to 155 marks for 2021 in Kerala.
Last year, the cutoff for stage 2 NTSE in Kerala was 134 marks for the general category. So, depending on this stats, I believe that you have got sufficient marks to qualify the examination, but wait till final results are announced.
