Minimum application requirements

Why is UFV’s cut-off just 65 per cent?

UFV recognizes that most Indian colleges and universities require relatively high cut-off percentages when accepting students. UFV believes that any student should have the opportunity to obtain a great education and to secure their futures; therefore, our entrance policies are more flexible. Many students who had average marks in a theory-based educational model thrive in UFV’s interactive learning environment. While the program is extremely demanding, students who are dedicated to their studies according to faculty recommendations (review strategies for success) usually do very well.
