Both colleges are popular destinations for commerce, science and arts students from the city and around the country and the high class 12 scores showed in the overall cutoffs of the first merit lists in both institutes.
“We are noticing anywhere between three to five percent point increase in cut-offs across courses this year compared to last. Courses in the science stream have witnessed 5-10% point hike this year,” said Hemlata Bagla, principal KC College. Starting 2020-21, both colleges that form part of the Hyderabad Sind National Collegiate University (HSNCU) along with Bombay Teachers’ Training College, conduct admissions on a separate schedule.

Similarly in HR College, FYBCom list ended at 97% this year, two percent points higher than last time.
