      • Vaibhav

        Nice attempt. Slightly greater attempt in math wouldn’t hurt though

  • Priyamvada

    I had attempted 73 ques.. approx 28-29 in english and reasoning each. But attempted 17 ques in maths but I am sure 15 will be correct n other ques of other sections will also be correct. So is it possibility that I clear the prelims.

  • Reshma

    My exam was on 6th, Dec 8 o’clock shift. Even though I went to the exam without any preparation (since I had my M.Tech exams going on), I could attempt around 60 questions which definitely is said to be a good try. Some months ago, I had given IBPS PO also and that was obviously very tough. I found especially the English Section difficult in PO’s exam and in case of this Clerk exam that was the most easiest one.
    I expect 24/30 in the English Section. Other sections were also moderate..I hope I can clear the exam this time..lets see..

    • Vaibhav

      Nice analysis Reshma. You will be able to clear overall cutoff as well as sectional cutoff very easily. start preparing for mains Asap.
