I score 82 in general cat. Is there any chance?

by Shakti
Let me awake forgotten problem: whether homework is necessary. I recently was bothered by the same question. My point is: yes! As a student I think we need daily brain training. The proofs can be found at any quality source. Just take a look at this blog. It explains in details why daily homework is necessary for students. How about you, guys?

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!
