Manipal University Results and Cutoff

Manipal University counts itself to be among some of the most exclusive institutions in the country. The rate of acceptance is really low with only around an average of 4.5% of the prospective candidates getting in, every year. This is an obvious indication to a high cutoff on most of the courses, offered.

The engineering entrances are administered through the All India Manipal Entrance Test (MET). Both B.Tech/UG and M.Tech/PG applicants have to apply for this exam. The registrations for MET starts in the month of October and Sikkim Manipal University results declare in March of the following year. The exams themselves take place in either late April or early May.

This depends on the candidates’ board/graduation exam dates. The candidate is ranked on the basis of an amalgamation of both their MET score as well as the (10+2) board exams. The usual weightage division is 60% MET score and 40% for the board results. The highest cutoff is required for B.Tech (CSE) followed by B.Tech (IT).

The medical students have to apply on the basis of their NEET score and rank. Manipal’s Kasturba Medical College is ranked ninth out of all the medical schools in the country and has a very stringent system of admission. Only students who have cleared the CBSE NEET Cutoff are allowed to apply.

The cutoffs are high usually between 468 and 685 for the general candidates. The cutoff marks would be based on the number of applications, the number of available seats, the cutoff marks in the last few years and reservation criterion among others.

The particular specialisation courses of MBA provided by the T.A Pai Management Institute is among the rarer ones in the country. The Healthcare Management course was among the first one of its kind to be launched in India.

The institute requires the candidate to undertake one of the following exams: CAT, MAT. XAT. CMAT etc. The admissions to these programmes is restricted by a high cutoff which is usually 85 for those who took XAT and 600 for those who sat for MAT. Should a candidate clear the cutoff, they still have to appear for an interview and a group discussion which would shortlist them, even further.

For other courses that are not mentioned above, Manipal hosts the Manipal University Online Entrance with department specific questions presented to the candidate. The B.Arch course is an exception because it only takes in students on the basis of their JEE or NATA scores.

The cut-off is dependent on two factors: the number of available seats and the number of applicants. The ranking system is similar to that of MET.

The weightage distribution is 50% board marks and 50% entrance score. While most departments take in applicants based on their entrance exam scores, a few conduct interviews and discussions to shortlist the candidates even further.
