Dear Kunal,

For the MCA (Master of Computer Applications) program at Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU), I was unable to locate cutoffs for the year 2022. The number of candidates, the difficulty of the admission exam, and the amount of seats available can all affect the Cutoffs each year. For the most updated details on MCA cutoffs for recent years, I advise visiting the official AKTUwebsite or getting in touch with the institution directly.

I hope this was helpful! 

If you have any further queries or questions, please contact us.
