  • Paper was definitely tougher than last year... (as per my experience solely)
    I can't speculate cutoff until I know marks of atleast 20 gud students :tongue:

    But I feel it will be less than 110 definitely (talked to 4-5 good candidates + self feeling so)
    less than 105? Cant say... but may be may not be.. JUST SPECULATION!

    last time 120+ wale bhi bahut the,.. is baar 110+ wale rare dikh rahe mujhe yahaan...

  • My experience ( I have enough to give an opinion) says the cutoff is definitely going down by at least 5 marks. Most of the people I know have scored almost 15-20 marks less than last year. I am talking about already selected candidates.
  • edited June 2017
    My hunch says, cutoff will come down.I am scoring 5-10 marks lesser than last year with comparatively better preparation
