  1. Done 19 in maths, 14 in reasoning and 24 in english. Expecting somewhere around 43 and from sc category. What are my chances?

        • I wasz preparing for central service exam i just wanna see the bank thing as both my parents managers n sbi so attempted paper waz easy but reasoning was time taking what i felt …so wt r my chances do i have a break?

          • You mentioned that you didn’t prepare for the exam. Cracking an exam without preparation will be one heck of a fluke. I insist, next time prepare an exam and then sit for it. Even if you want to opt out, it’ll add credentials to your resume.

            Best wishes.
