How is the NLU cutoff 2020 determined?

NLU cutoff 2020 is being calculated by the examination committee. Factor like choice of NLUs and UG/PG programmes could also affect NLU 2020 cutoff.

Given below is an explanation of scenario of how selection of NLUs and UG/PG courses play an important role in affecting the NLU cutoff 2020.

For instance, NLU NALSAR is likely to get more number of applications than a lesser NLU; also mostly higher ranked candidates will apply. This will automatically push up the admission cutoff of NALSAR. Alternately however, if some other NLU receives more number of applications (especially from higher ranked candidates) than NALSAR, that institute may end up having a higher cutoff than NALSAR.
