    16 reasoning
    kya mera exam clear hoga
    mko kya mains ki prep start karni chiye or should i wait for result

    • Nitin I insist you start your preparation for Mains. A lot of students waste their precious time waiting for the result. That is not recommended.

      As far as your attempt goes, i feel you should be in but it all depends on the final cutoff decided by IBPS. Either way start preparing for Mains.

        Please suggest mam what should i do?

        • Please keep preparing. Nobody except for IBPS will decide the final cutoff. So don’t worry. If you keep preparing, it’ll help you.Dropping preparation just because we are all making our predictions for the cutoff is not recommended. All the best.

    • Don

      I doubt u hv accuracy of over 90% in English.

      • Arindam Sanyal

    • Your chances are good.

  • Ram

    How much will be the cut off ?
    as there is some change in the English, the sectional cutoff for english will decrease ??

    • I’m predicting anything between 35-40.

      • Ram

        as compared to previous year, the sectional cutoff for english will decrease or increase??

        • The English section was difficult this year so let’s hope the sectional cutoff decreases for English this year.

  • Nikita Kochure

    hey!! like today, there were no questions of filler in english. will it be same in the paper of 23rd october?

    • It’s not right to assume anything. So keep preparing all the topics without anything filters. Best wishes.
