However, it has notified that the Karnataka PGCET 2021 Previous Year cutoffs are only suitable for a candidate's information and they should not be used to derive any inference about the college or course availability.

This means that the previous year cutoffs can be used to get an idea of the cutoff rank required for MBA 2021-22 admissions in Karnataka. However, a student should not consider their admission guaranteed based on the previous year cutoffs. KEA has refused to accept any liability in this regard.
