Question How stringent are program score cut off values?

I am just wondering if a program says score of 200+ is required for step1
if someone got 197 then it is impossible to get into that program or rules vary case to case?
I mean the cut off value say 200 is really cut off? not even + -1?

Program dependent, but on the most part your application will get filtered out.
