I am a Male candidate and I belong to the General Open category with no deprivation points. I have scored 78 in JNUEE 2020. What are my chances of getting selected for M.A. IRAM (International Relations and Area Studies)?
-Abhik -Updated on Nov-05-20201 Answers

Abhik Das, Student / Alumni

Dear student, according to the previous year male general open category JNUEE closing cutoff score for M.A International Relations and Area Studies was 77%. If the cutoff trends for JNUEE 2020 for M.A IRAM admission for the general unreserved male category candidate remain same then you are likely to get inducted into your favourite programme offered at Jawaharlal Nehru University. However, we suggest you wait until the JNUEE cutoff scores for the academic year 2020-21 is released so as to get a clearer picture regarding getting admission. The National Testing Agency (NTA) is yet to announce the detailed schedule for the release of the JNUEE 2020 cutoff scores. We advise you to keep visiting the link provided below for all the JNUEE 2020 cutoff related recent updates -
