    @Anshu,

    I am afraid it is difficult for you this time. Cut-off is expected to be above 190 :-(

  3. V.K.G.B. says:

    @Prince,

    You will definitely get through :-) Congrats!

    @Kalpesh,

    Ya cut-off will be on higher side this time. For ST it may be around 185.

    @Anonymous,

    It doesn’t depend upon number of questions attempted. Number of right answers to total questions attempted matters a lot.

    If you can answer 45 right in Paper-I and 50 right in paper-II it will be a cake walk for you to Mains :-)
