IOQM 2021 cut off marks

IOQM result i.e., the merit list of qualified candidates is prepared on the basis of cut off, which is further prepared by taking few factors into consideration such as ; number of candidates appeared for IOQM, average score in the exam, and the total candidates to be selected for the next round.

IOQM cut off 2021 is expected to be higher since the candidates of both cancelled exams PROM and RMO appeared for only one Olympiad. This factor alone will drive the cut off up and since the number of selected candidates will remain same as previous years.

The IOQM cut off is different for each state and is released accordingly.
