  3. Legal cut off has been revised from 115.5 to 125.5 to 145.5 to 155.5, I knew this would happen, once I had posted the cutoff to be 150, but the mockbank team disagreed.. Thank you mockbank team for giving us some hope for 2 months…??

  11. I am getting 154 EE GEN in CIL MT 2017…if correction happens properly it wil go to 157..should I prepare for interview??Plz Reply…

  12. hello mam i would like to ask you that why cil submit the exam after one hour because they give the time only one hour for non tech part and if you want to do tech part you have to submit the paper than you can go and i like to ask you that you have the approx data so you know very well the marks of most of the candidate so if the cut off for the general category is above 165 in electrical then the student should be sufficient for the interview and is there any waiting list for the candidates

    and my score is 131 general category so is there any chance for me

    and i like to ask you one more question that the modified answer key will be beneficial for all or it will beneficial for those candidate who send the doubts individually

    • Hi Ankit,

      Let me address your concerns one by one –

      1. Submit the exam after one hour – Do you imply you were given less time ?
      2. If you’re scoring 131 for UR category, It’ll be a tough fight but lets hope for the best.
      3. The modified answer key will benefit the aspirants equally. Either a mark will be alloted or deducted from everyone.

      • no mam i want to know the logic why they want to be pressed submit button after one hour of exam to go the tech section is there any logic or this is will an important role in the selection process and kindly tell me is there any waiting list or not

        • we had to press the submit button to start the tech part. But we could still alter the answers in the non tech part. This same problem cost me 3-4 marks as i was not sure answer will be counted or not

          • broo i think that play a major role in selection the submission means i think that they wanted to know the speed and may be some other they want to see which they will count in the selection

        • As far as I see it, were you not supposed to press submit to move to the next section i.e Technical. However you could have switched back and still answered questions that were left unattempted. Do you feel that you missed out on time here ?

      • i do not know but if the cutoff is so high so why they mentioned that the qualifying marks is 40 % only and why they did not mention the over all cut off

  13. I m geeting 178 plus two questions challenged in mechanical many out there getting marks in the same range?

      • you are in means for personal interview or final selection. and also tell me are you sure about that interview marks lies between 25 to 50. please reply as soon as possible

  14. Ma’am I am getting 157 marks in Mech (Gen) .. Chances of getting interview call??

    Ma’am I think 170-180 is really a high cutoff you have percepted… 85-90% of total marks to be cutoff is really not digestable…

    • Actually it is. But having said that, sure our experts can make mistakes even though we try to be as precise as possible.

      The paper for Mechanical was pretty simple this time so the cutoff will go high. Even if i reduce the cutoff by 10, it’ll still be 160. I don’t see it getting lower than this. But I’m not CIL so I may be wrong too.

      You prepare for the interview if you feel you’ll make it. Why waste time overthinking. Your preparation will help you anyways. All the best.

  15. For candidates who are in the their last year graduation how can they present heir mrksheet if interview is held in may…they wil be getting mrksheet by july.

  16. Can someone please tell will CIL send a mail to all the candidates who are qualified for the interview and will this mail be sent after the result is put on their website or before that?

  17. is this clause applicable to CA/ICWA (finance and accounts)
    “Further, the candidates shall clear all subjects of final year/ semester/trimester, whichever applicable, in the academic year 2016-17 in one attempt and should have cleared all previous years/semesters/trimesters as on the date of declaration of results.”:

    because only a few students are able to pass these qualification in first attempt. may be less than the desired no of vacencies i.e. 257

    • This is applicable for candidates who have not yet completed degree, not for all candidates. Further we dont have years/semesters etc in CA/ICWA. So, need not worry about number of attempts, if you are a qualified CA/CWA.

  18. The predicted cutoff given here for environmental engineering is based on the number of vacancies in the above mentioned stream as 25. But the number of vacancies has now been revised to 57. So the cutoff should change!! Please post the updated cutoff if possible for general category.

  19. Mam pls analyse the chances of getting shortlisted fr the interview and also hw far these scores hv chance to make upto the final list of selection

    Hr stream
    160hr Gen cat
    140hr SC cat

  24. Hello everyone!!!! I scored 154 in the exam ( civil general category). Should I expect a call for the interview??? If yes how should I prepare for it??
    Thanks in advance

  25. Mam according to you the cutoff for sales and marketing will be 140-150 for GEN and max it will be 150-160. it means that the candidate having 160 or plus score will be on safe side???@ Akriti mam Please reply

    • We are not CIL Partho. If you feel the cut off will be otherwise, may be. Our experts considered criteria as per their expertise and tried to be precise but they are not CIL authorities.

      I insist you start preparing for the Interview. Have you begun or still waiting ?

      • I am bit afraid mam regarding the interview call that is why i am asking you silly queries. I haven’t started yet mam 🙁 feeling demotivated…….after seeing my answer response i came to know that i could have scored 170 in sales & Marketing…….

  26. There is a guy who is saying dat his score is 185 hr gen..i scored 160 hr gen..if we leave people jus like dat,by d time cil wil release the result thy may also say 195 n wonder in dat to get surprised…i dno y people are faking here…the guy who is saying 175 sir we arent pointing out nythng abt ua caste..we are jus asking abt ua so called 175 score..if dat is real we are very glad to mt u at cil( wil see if ua score is so or not then )

    • Preethi, if people are faking with marks here, it won’t serve them any good. But I would also like to point out here that just because a candidate scores more (which ever category) doesn’t imply fakery. Why even bother ?

      At this point each and every aspirant hopeful of a good result should be focused on preparing for the CIL interview 100%. The interview will be highly competitive. So make every moment of your preparation count.

      All the best.

      • I totally agree with you mam. You are right we should focus on our own preparation rather then worrying about other marks and you said one right thing in fact the only right thing that matters Jai Ho mam

      • Nywaz thnx alot mam…i jus wanted to know the actual marks so that we cn arrive at a genuine least bothered abt categories etc ..mam can u pls analyse the cutoff fr hr in all categories.bcz my frnds needed sm info if thy can b shrtlisted or not..thnx in advance

    • Hi Deep,

      Kindly contact the CIL officials at the earliest. This will not be an issue now but may be a hindrance once your documents are verified. So let them know in advance. You can also submit a written undertaking.

  46. Akriti mam…
    Thanks a lot for ur guidance …actually u r leaving no stone unturned while providing us rit guidelines. …so just for some persons plzzz dont sink our respect towards u…u r doing ur job perfectly ….thanks for watever u r doing for us

  47. Hi Soham in finance my expected marks 114 PWD Category. I left out 60 questions unattempted becoz did not save.

  48. Dear mam, can you please tell me there were how many worng questions in sales and marketing paper or the no. Of questions whose options were incorrect.

      • Thankyou mam.. bdw mam do you have any rough idea approx how many questions or options were wrong. If u had any number in approx also dn please let me know mam..

  49. Akriti Ma’am I would like to know the no of applicants who gave exam of CIL MT HR or rough idea?? and also what is going to be the cut of for hr category wise since this time 402+ candidates have to be called for interview.!

  50. Hello mam, I am getting 140(GENERAL) in Civil Engineering . Is there any chance of getting a call for the interview?

  51. Hello mam, what is the expected cut off of OBC in Finance? I have scored 141 in Finance (OBC). What are the chances?

  52. Mockband team especially Akriti mam has been kind enough to answer each one of us in the most polite manner.. Many of us disagreed with the cutoff provided here, we represented it too, but the response from Aktiti mam was commendable as always..She does not impose anything on the aspirants, she listens to everyone and respects what everyone aays.. But few people who have no manners towards any exam, any person or any woman, dare to question the credibility of someone who has such a huge following..Irrespective of what mam has achieved, even if she had not achieved what she has, she is better than all of us, she is humble and doing her job with dedication.These are the qualities that make a person a person with credentials..Those who are questioning her ability should first take lessons of ethics and then comment..Even if you clear this very exam or any other you have already lost respect from all sensible people here.. Please show some respect towards a girl who is busy answering so many queries since morning to night..
    Akriti mam is stong enough to handle such stupids, but as a sensible person I could not stop myself from posting this..

    • u r ryt. But these comments do not undermine the goodness and her generosity because she is good from her heart. ” Kamal kahi bhi kamal hi hota hai” . People think that they are not getting the expected cutoff thats why they started abusing.
      They forget that these are expected cutoff not official. But most the time her prediction on cutoff stand true.
      this is not a new phenomenon on this website only but rampant every where.
      At last i just want to say that let them do their job we will do our works.
      Jai Hind !!!

    • one information.
      I had talk with my brother who works in CIL, he said that Director(HR) has been suspended in corruption charges. there might be delay in result. for legal he said that cutoff will not go more than 140. It is also a possibility that people will be rejected in interview although they get high marks i.e. interview itself is a rejection process.

    • Hey thanks Nidhi for such wonderful words. It is because of (only because of) dedicated aspirants that I am motivated enough to guide you guys a little better.

      If you or any aspirant reading this has a query relating to any exam, feel free to drop by my blog or Quora. I’ll make sure I revert back within 24 hours.

      All the very best Nidhi. Make it big 🙂

  53. What is the weightage of interview? 50 or 25?
    Does anyone have credible info?
    Akriti, do you have any information for the same?

  54. @akritiMB:disqus Mam, please tell me from where to prepare for cil mt hr interview and also please tell me the important topics

  55. Also, just out of curiosity i m asking that hiw cutoffs are derived… What are the driving factors… I got 143 in finance general category and i am afraid that will be short by 2-3 mark… Pls share your thoughts mam

    • As per us Manish, you should be close enough with a score of 143 marks.

      Now coming to the predicted cutoff.

      See the following factors have been taken into account –

      The number of vacancies (stream wise) that are to be filled.
      The number of vacancies category wise.
      The approximate number of applicants that gave the exam this year.
      Previous year trends
      Most important, the level of complexity of the exam.

  56. Hi Akriti,
    If all the candidates will get the benefit of wrong answers (whether he has raised the issue or not) then there will be increase in marks of all… Hence, increase in cutoff.. Don’t you think that this will not make a difference as on an average there will be increase in marks of all the aspirants

    • It does. Let us assume two questions are incorrectly framed, or have multiple options correct. Then in that case assuming only 25% got the answer correct previously, and if marks are allotted for now two options or marks to all, the candidates who were at advantage earlier will face the brunt.

      Also in limited vacancies, specially in borderline cases, these may play a big role for individuals, but not for the whole group.

  57. Hi akriti,

    Where do I stand (159, gen) in sales and MKT stream as per your analysis of the marks secured by other candidates? Is it still short of 1 or 2 marks?

    Kindly suggest!

      • Hi Adnan CIL result declared. I have got 155 in OBC but I’m not in. What’s about your? Even I have not seen your name in list. Seems a big fraud!!!

        • No bro it’s not like how r we thinking. I am also telling u this fact by putting a stone on my chest and with a heavy heart that I myself have analyzed students getting 160+ even to the extent of 170+ were quite good in no. In Sales and marketing, which made our chances marginal at that point of time itself. As u can see only 65 candidates have been called for 21 vacancies (strictly applying 3:1 ratio -63+2). I think this must not be a fraud. And if it happened to be one, who else would listen to us.

          • I’m fully agree with you but I have never seen a single candidate who got more marks than you. One or two may be there but where were all these 63 candidates who never claimed on any blogs that he got 180+ marks and what is his chance? . Bhai koi to hota… Mai to hamesa yahi check krta Tha Ki mujhse jayada kitno ko marks mile hain. Ye baat kuch gale se nhi utarti..

        • I am humbled by your acknowledgement of my marks. Thanks. But may be you have not searched different websites. As I have gone through one excel sheet shared by pagalguy and have seen marks of 15+ students in S&M having 160+ marks and maximum upto 173 marks also. By saying this I am not rejecting the doubt created by the results nor I am saying that the result is 100% genuine. Hum dono hi ho sakte the!! Bhai tera mera gham ek jaisa hai..truly said one of my known uncles working at CIL as Sr. Manager told ki 150+ wale ka call aata hai 100% in S&M. But kya hua…nonsense!!

          • Bhai today just I have picked a name from the list and searched in google and find him over LinkedIn. I send a request and he accepted than I confirmed his marks . He told it was approx 108-09 as per answer key. Than I asked his category, he told he is in Physically challenged “divyang” group. Yar yese hi kuch try kro aap bhi kmsr km pta to chale aakhir khani kiya hai…

          • Bhai Ek baat aur … Jo aap ke pass excel sheet hai 170+ wali kiya usme se koi name hai list me…?
