Let's make some educated guess on Cutoff ;)

Hi all :) the title says it all.
Let's just start. No Discussion. Only the number you feel will be magical this year but that should be based on thoughts, experience or data from peer group. This will go down in history of speculation here too :p
102-104

    @focus brother I know you are a serious contender so I want you to share your thoughts on the current situation.try to give a detailed answer keeping in mind the questions as well as cutoff of previous years ie 2013_2016.thanks in advance
    bhai i am not omniscient. let me tell you everything very clearly. me and my flatmate missed last year by one and two questions respectively. we are getting ~110-115. my ex flatmate who has always scored 125+ is getting 105-110. two people I know from interview days are getting 97 and ~105. a girl who gave interview this year and got ~ 130 last year is getting ~104. a senior who is in his 7th attempt and has appeared at interview thrice said he is not sure he will pass this year for the first time on 18th night. and then there are few people on forum I have seen over the years are also getting in 100-110 bracket. These all are bloody serious contenders. ab kya kah sakte aur....

    Far too many unknowns this year. I have a strong feeling it could fall by this big a margin. I could be wrong of course, but this is after talking to quite a few candidates, deserving ones at that.
