Check your eligibility for admission to college or university by calculating your CBSE cut-off mark. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is a body that monitors and controls courses and examinations for High School students across India. Each year, students are allocated a cut-off mark, calculated from their examination results, that is then used by colleges and universities as an indicator of potential success in their courses. The cut-off marks are used as part of the admission criteria and, as such, are important for students who wish to make applications for further study.

    Add together the marks for physics and chemistry. Divide the result by four.

    Divide the mathematics marks by two.

    Add the totals from step 1 and step 2 together to calculate the cut-off score. This can be used as an indicator for engineering-based courses. If a medical course is preferred, substitute biology marks for mathematics.
