    Prelims 2017 Cut off: 108-111

  • in 120 +

    But i dont think cut off shooted up 105. many of my known scoring between 105-108 are through.
    I guess its a matter of 2-3 questions.
    Congrats to those who are through .
    But those who didnt make it , dont put down your weapons yet. Get ready for your last battle. Its a one year process and knowledge accumulated and assimilated in this 1 year is going to help you for your next prelims and mains. So dont commit suicide by wasting time till december. Remember Killing time is not murder, its suicide.
    So gear up in few days and start studying like you never did before. Enjoy the process , make a routine ,join gym , join test series and stick to routine.
    'Winners are not people who never fail , but those who never quit'. So dont let negativity surrounds you. Start with new energy. Be Harvey !! All The Best.

    If those who think to achieve,
    Have a firm and focused mind,
    They will realize what they thought of,
    And even as they have thought of.
  • in 125+ geneal
    There are better starters than me but I'm a strong finisher.
    Usain bolt
  • In. 114 minimum.
    Methinks Shankar got at least one of IVC and RTV incorrect, and one or two others incorrect.
    Cutoff seems, as expected, around 108.
    Prelims: 4. Mains: 2*. Interview: 1. Rank: NA.

    Shankar keys didn't turn completely correct. At Least 2 questions could have gone wrong.

  • bc forum theek karwa lo, saal mein ek din load aata hai aur wo bhi handle nahi hota, result ke din hi to forum ki sab se zyada zaroorat hoti hai aur result wale din hi lag jaati hai forum ki, every year same story
  • In. Was getting 104 from shankar. One of my friends with 102 also qualified.
