The candidature will gets cancelled if you do not fulfill the eligibility criteria, if the documents are invalid and improper or if you have not provided requisite documents. If you fulfill the eligibility criteria and the documents are valid and true then your document verification will be successful.

Hello Aspirant.

Hope you are doing good.

Really sorry but your question is quite incomplete because you have not mentioned that in which competitive exam you have scored the rank and in which discipline you want the admission. But, I would like to tell that there are very few chances for you to get the admission into any government college for higher studies with this rank because the rank cut off for admission in government colleges goes very high means it usually ranges from 1-2000 or sometimes more or less for the general category students.

But as you have told that you belong to the SC category so there are changes for you to get into the government college with this rank because the rank system for SC and ST students comes down or up sometimes. But still sorry but there are few chances for you although you belong to a reserved category.

But don't loose hope because the cut off depends upon various factors may be you'll get the admission.
