    Attempted 150, but had a glance at few questions on pagalguy, and looks like I may have done too many wrongs. Did only 9 in reasoning. Getting a feeling I'll miss cut-off. Last year too had underscored by 2.25 marks.

    My attempts:
    ARD 30/40
    ESI 30/40
    English 40/40
    Quant 14/20
    Reasoning 9/20
    Computer 13 or 14
    GA 13 or 14

    I think cut-off will be a little higher than last year. 112 may be.
  • Difficulty level is similar to last yr, cutoff probably will be around 110..scoring above that seems an uphill task as one has to go for a lot of guesses in ARD and ESI..even computer section seemed confusing.
  • This was my first attempt. Didn't know much about the exam.
    Attempted around 145.
    Paper seemed easy overall except computer section.
    Sometimes it's the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine...
  • Did a lot of silly mistakes, was just checking few answers :neutral:

    see man every body did mistakes.. My ESI went well.. but computer, ARD and CA sucked me hard... yaha se 40/ 72 se behat hai...

    40+25+22+9+9=105 max jaunga

    Bas ARD COMP and CA ban jaye 50 to hayd chance hai jane k

    all the best... 3 june k baad tak outcome aa hi jayega
    Cut off - ajgar range :D
