    People only see 1 side of the coin and are excited to see nearly 1000 vacancies..
    They don’t realise that these vacancies gets distributed state wise and furthur gets diluted by reservation quota,,, In the end you are competing for around 20 vacancies 😛

    • All you need is one seat. Doesn’t matter if vacancies are 20 or 2000. Make your effort count for that one seat.

      Best wishes 🙂
