Further, in case any degree from a particular college/university is not considered for admission by an Agricultural University or any particular college/university has been derecognized by VCI/UGC/ICAR or due to any Court directives (present or future) will not be responsible for admitting students of that college/university in the Universities not willing to admit such candidates.

1. Where OGPA is awarded, equivalence between OGPA and % marks will not be acceptable.
2. There will be no rounding-off of the OGPA/percentage of marks of qualifying examination while deciding the basic eligibility of any candidate for admission e.g. if a candidate obtains 49.99% marks in his/her qualifying examination, then it will not be rounded-off to 50%.
