Result card ..IF YOUR TOTAL SCORE IS
* LESS THAN 30- Better try Next year..Both because you are weak enough in this hard journey and there are enough people stronger than you who deserve the cake for their sacrifices and hard work..ATB
* 30-45 - Good chances but require extreme hard work smartly and continuesly. Are you ready ?
* 45-60 - Strong chances if you don't falter away in last critical one month period and brace up adequately.
* 60-80 - You are reasonably In .. just try to improve ,revise and keep going.. think of a good margin to cross cut off
* >80 -- CHECK AGAIN YOUR TOTAL AS WELL AS ASSESSMENT ..IF STILL SAME ..HATS OFF ..THINK OF NEXT STAGE ..BECAUSE YOU DESERVE IT !!
