Minimum Marks in Qualifying Examination (QE)

ISM Dhanbad is 60% marks (55% marks for SC/ST/PD) in their 12th Standard or
equivalent qualifying examination.

the cut-off for top 20 percentile of successful candidates, the candidate will
have to produce a certificate from the concerned Board stating that he/she
