Karnataka PGCET 2020 MBA is an entrance exam conducted for admission to all the MBA colleges in Karnataka. Admissions are based on the Karnataka PGCET 2020 MBA cutoff ranks, which is the minimum rank a candidate must score for admission to a particular college or course.

Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) releases the cutoff ranks for PGCET MBA 2020 exam on the official KEA website kea.kar.nic.in.

KEA also releases the previous year cutoff ranks for PGCET MBA on its official website. However, it has notified that the Karnataka PGCET 2020 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 2020-21 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.
