    bhai question paper pe bhi to roll no. likha hoga

  2. Shrinidhi

    No u cannot do that, before specifying the category u should have a certificate for that. And it must be before the last date of application closing date. Because when you mention your category as OBC during form filling it will ask for the date when you have got the certificate.

    1. Ranjeet Mehta

      I agree with u , and its a long process minimum two month to get an OBC certificate.

  3. Bhugeswar Sonowal

  4. rahul

  5. Durga Prasad

    I was a bit confused with the CSAT prelims cut off and minimum qualifying standards (marks)/marks secured by the last recommended candidate in 2015. They mentioned it as 107 for General. I got 130(54+76) in CSAT(P)-2015, but was not qualified. As per the score mentioned here I should be qulaified. Am I missing something here, or the score 107 is just a cut off but not the score of last recommended candidate. (Anyway I believe what I got is way too low and I have to allocate more productive time and dedication towards this exam to reach it.)

    Any clarification by any one would be grateful. Thank you in advance.

      @ Durga Prasad
      You should have scored 107.34 marks…only in Paper I. Paper 2 score should not be considered. Read notification….clearly.

    2. Vinay Ray

      prelims cut off
      1) paper 1 –107.34
      2) CSAT — mere 33%

  6. Gyanesh Shukla

    #Durga Prasad cut off for general is 107 ,
    which u hv to score in CSAT-I Only in which u scored 54 as u mention dat. CSAT-II is qualifying nature only so cutoff 107 is only for CSAT-I , Si prepare hard, best of luck for next tm.

  34. natwar bhardwaj

    got 106.66 marks. could ur luck get any harder..

  35. aspirant

    a cut off of 107 (General) in GS 1 indicates that one will have to prepare really well for prelims as it is never easy to get above 50% in GS with negative marking..Topper tina dabi herself just managed to clear prelims in SC category by 1 mark..competition is also increasing every year so one can expect a cut off of 105-115 for general cat in 2016 also irrespective of the difficulty of paper..prelims has indeed become the most imp part of the whole process of CSE..all the best to all of you friends..study hard and get through

  36. Rajesh
