getting 81 score in SC category... should i go for mains prep??
What is process job in bihar block
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 !!
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!!
my dob is -12/02/92 my exam centre is in tilaya on 18 dec but i had lost my admit card so plz give my roll no. atleast so i check the result.
I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!
at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
