  • Last Year 141.34 Gave Interview
    ST category
    This year made lot of silly mistake scoring 95-100.could have easily crossed 110,if not for those mistake.Still Hopeful.This was my 2nd attempt

    My Take on cut off.
    Factors
    1.Less seats
    2.More Number of Applicant
    3.Material available readily
    4.Next generation better than previous
    5.most people taking risks due to high cut off last year ending up attempting 85+,Benefitting some ..taking cut off on higher side due to sheer luck
    6.Tougher paper,Elimination doesn't worked like it did last year.I had done 10-15 question on basis of elimination last year.this year Ended in Negative


    Finally my say,it doesn't matter much,as me too on boundary line this year

  • Last year my score was 128 but could not clear Mains due to optional.

    This year I have scored in range of 100-105. Thoroughly disappointed with my performance as I blew some sitters away.

    I have an inkling that the cutoff for ST Category will hover around early 90's or may even less. I have been giving this exam for a while now and I know one thing for sure that the difference between General and ST is around 15-20 marks on an average for Prelims

    Any ST candidate scoring more than 90 should start studying at the earliest. Coz' even within ST category the competition is cut throat these days.

    Don't know bro. Let's see,. Even though I don't have much expectations this year but I'm happy that paper was very unexpected and it was bound to fail or score less. So no worries now.
    Chill maro. Enjoy at least a week.

  • 127.33 - 2016
    124 to 130 - 2017
  • My Paper 1 is on safer side, but in Paper 2 I got a rude shock when I tallied my marks. I am borderline with my marks being 67-68 according to Shankar key.

    Last year also I had calculated around 97 marks according to CL, but eventually got around 114. So still hopeful.. Fingers Crossed !!!
  • 2016 - 93.34

    Material is always readily available bro. Next generation is good, but may or work this time. Last year graduation final year students who mugged pt365 could clear. This time no pt365 not any coaching material helps.

    Polity needs depth in subject to score which may not be present with freshers. This is veteran advantage.

    Be optimistic.

    Easiest paper 2016 cutoff is 96.

    2017 toughest paper in years.
    ST 90+ may get through
  • jagranjosh and neo stencil are predicting 90+-

    last year jagranjosh predicted nearby cutoff
