Hi Sir, i wrote TSPGLCET for LLM and scored 62 marks and got 107 rank. Can I get a seat in Osmania University Campus itself?

Helly Shah 26th Jun, 2019

Hi Hari,

Osmania University is a prestigious university which opens many gates of opportunities for it's students. And getting admission in this university is an achievement in itself. Since it is such a high ranked university it's cutoffs are also high.

This year's cut-offs for TSPGLCET have not been released yet but you can always predict your college by checking out last year's cut-off trends.

Last year the cut-off marks for Osmania University were:-

Opening- 102

Closing- 90

So according to last year's cut-offs you don't have much of a chance getting in Osmania University campus. But if the cut-off marks go down then you can get in.

Mostly you'll get in other colleges only. If you want to check out last year's cut-offs for different colleges then click on the link below:-


Hope this helps

All the best!
