    Hello Sathyanarayanan K, Greetings from Eduncle! Analyzing the last year cut-offs for Management for Unreserved category was 60:00 and for the OBC Category was 52:00, the cut-offs would be ther with a difference of + or - 5 to 10 marks. And Top 15% candidates (for each subject and category), from the merit list, mentioned under step II, will be declared NET qualified for eligibility for Assistant Professor only. Good Luck!
