101 obc whats my chance for mains sir…confused I m
Hi Sayantan, we can understand your situation and how it can be difficult to plan your next steps at this time. You are within our range of expected cutoff so there is a chance that you will clear the prelims. In any case, currently the best strategy is to start preparing for mains as if you are going to make it. Its likely that you will. If unfortunately you don’t, then you can start preparing strongly for prelims starting January and be in a better situation for mains next year!
I am getting 53 in paper 1 and 74 in paper 2 and my total for both is 127 This is my last attempt due to my age approaching 32 in dec…should i start studying for mains or should i leave
Hi Dr. Chaitanya, the cut-off is based on the Paper 1 alone. Paper 2 is of qualifying nature and everyone must qualify in that paper with a minimum of 33% marks. From your expected scores, it seems that your chances of clearing prelims are very low.
Sir i am getting 106-108 according to different keys…m having sleepless nights over this?what shud i do?
Hi Vipul, we can understand your situation and how it can be so stressful. You are within our range of expected cutoff so there is a good chance you will clear the prelims. In anycase, currently the best strategy is to start preparing for mains as if you are going to make it. Most likely you will. If unfortunately you don’t, then you can start preparing strongly for prelims starting January and be in a better situation for mains next year!
my daughter secured 122 in paper-I as per key provided by various institutions. What are the cut off marks for 2016 for General category
Dear Mr. Reddy, as per the expected cut off prepared by NeoStencil and it’s partner institute, the cut off for General category in paper 1 is 105 ± 4 marks. Therefore your daughter holds a good chance to clear the exam.
All the best!
Paper – 1 -> 15 Marks Paper – 2 -> 90 Marks Total = 105 Marks
How does cut-off gets calculated? I am really confused with internet data saying cutoff = 107 approx [Only & Only by Paper – 1] 33% [Paper – 2] Please explain it.
only paper 1 consider as merit formation, paper 2 is only qualifying in nature.
Hi sir, my score is 115.44 in OBC category. Please give me some idea about whether I’ll clear the prelims or not. Some are saying they are scoring 125-130 ans some even 140. I’m losing my night’s sleep hearing such marks. Please reply.
Dear Sandy, as per the expected cut off prepared by team NeoStencil in collaboration with the partner institutes, you hold a good chance to clear the exam.
