Have you completed your 12th from a recognized university? Or just perusing the same? The Mass-communication career field is really an interesting one and you would find ample, let’s say a good number of opportunities in the field. You have expressed the right query as anybody who wants to be in the Mass-media and communication career path, would have in mind such type of questions obviously.


Coming back to your query, I would say, that indeed some of the colleges would demand you to have a very good score like above 90% and even more but there are still some of the top colleges which are not demanding that much high score as some do. Some colleges would require you to pass the 10+2 level in any discipline with minimum 45% marks (Relaxation in marks would be there for categories). Some Mass-communication colleges would require you to face the Entrance exam for the purpose of admission as the School of Communication of Manipal University holds Entrance Exam. Where there is an Entrance Exam, they would finalize the candidates to be admitted considering the score in Entrance Exam, marks in your 10+2 level, Personal face to face Interview, etc. so we can summarize the details as following:-

Cut-offs for Mass-communication Colleges with admissions based on 12th Score

The Cut offs for Journalism and Mass-communication courses may go higher up to 96% and even higher for some of the colleges of Delhi University like Lady Shri Ram College of Women. While some other colleges will end up closing their admissions at 76% to 82% and around. Here I would say, it would be good to have score around 90% in 10+2 level to get the admission in top colleges. For other colleges, there is no such requirement of having a certain high range of scores. So, still you don’t stay relaxed thinking you would somehow get some good college in your desired field but rather you just try hard to achieve the best score in 12th so that the good and reputed college would prefer you and your career would take fillip in no time. Here, remember, there can be an Interview for admission purpose and some weightage would have been given to it.

Cut-offs for Mass-communication Colleges with admissions based on Entrance Exam Score

The Entrance Exam is the best way to measure the aptitude of the students if they really deserve for the field. The Entrance test will test for many abilities such as Arithmetic and basic numeracy, Quantitative Aptitude, Creative abilities, Reasoning and Decision Making with the addition to General knowledge and Current affairs about the field. The score in Entrance exam may have the weightage around 70 to 80 % and remaining weightage may have been assigned to the score in 12th and the Interview. Here you normally have to pass the 10+2 level with minimum 45% marks.

Cut-Offs for Mass-communication Colleges with direct admission

Yes, there are some colleges which would only require you to possess the 12th Passing certificate for their UG Courses. These colleges may also require you to present for Entrance/Aptitude test. The admissions would be higher as the majority of colleges in this category are from the private sector.
