Bombay blood (hh) is the rarest blood ever discovered. It attains its name from the place of discovery (Bombay, 1952). Bombay blood is very rare and is typically found in 1 Indian out of every 10,000 Indian. Person having Bombay blood can accept only from other Bombay Type blood.

Biology behind Bombay (hh) Blood: Each blood type contains red blood cells (RBC) which floats in plasma. RBC carries a set of markers on their surface which the plasma interacts with. The RBC and Plasma compatibility makes blood type significant. In Bombay blood, the markers on RBC are determined by master type called H, out of which A, B, AB AND AO are generated.

During blood transfusion the RBC and plasma compatibility becomes vital. Thus following are best possible combination for blood transfusions.

People with A type blood can accept A or O type and not from AB or B type.

People with B type blood can accept A or O type and can donate to AB or B type.

People with AB type blood can accept from any one and donate to other AB.

People with O type blood can accept only from O and CAN donate to A, B, O and AB (Universal Donor).

However, the hh type can accept from only hh type. This makes Bombay blood very special.

by Jitendra Sharma

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!!

by Rohit Kumar

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

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.
