If you meant you scored 50 for DAT prelims you might have a chance to get into the next round. It can’t be exactly said as it depends on level of difficulty, the number of candidates for a seat, past years cut off etc.
If you meant, if you score 50 for your mains what would be rank then, for General candidate the cut off is 50 percentiles, OBC‐NCL is 45 percentiles, SC/ST/PwD is 40 percentiles. The number of candidates being shortlisted from prelims will not be less than three times the number of seats available for a particular category in that field or discipline.
**The most common and understood definition of a percentile is a number, at which certain percentage of scores fall below that number. You might have scored 50 on 100. But that number holds true meaning when you know in which percentile you fall into. If you know that your score is in the 90th percentile, that means you scored better than 90% of people who took the test. **
You could rank somewhere near 1200 to 1500, approximately.
The number of seats reserved for general candidates is 50, OBC-NCL 27, SC 15 and ST is 8
