Group-1 prelims re-exam

HI all,

Important matter about the re-exam……….

We are going file a petition about the re-exam for all the candidates who are unable to write the exam on 5th sept 2010. why bcaz ..if re-exam's paper might be easy/difficult when compared to the last one (05-09-2010). then cut-off will be gradually changed.

here i am giving you clear vision,

if we assume .. 5000 ppl will attempt the re-exam..if ppr was easy..then min 2000 ppl will score 90+ marks very easily..then cut-off will be changed to +7 marks i.e cut-off may 90+…..., for this we ppl who are getting 75-90 marks will utterly loose the chances 4 mains..

so we plan to file a petition in administrative tribunal or high court..our only demand is re-exam was not authenticated..or cancel the exam and conduct the exam again.

if u ppl anybody interested abt the petition ..please join with us..please send mails with phone numbers to this mail id:

plz ignore the mistakes

Thnx & Regards


APPSC Group-1 prelims cut-off mark

HI All,

Sorry for the huge gap..i m in preparation for r u? how is u r score in prelims? my score was around 90+ marks..

So many of you feel tense about the cut-off i am giving you the analysis..
Last time cut-off marks was 83..attendance 64% and paper was very easy when compared 2 this time..
This prelims (05-09-2010) attendance around 46% and paper was very difficult (especially science section)..

so my guess was cut-off will be in b/w 75-80 marks..this is my individual analysis..anybody who r getting 85+ marks will happily start for mains preparation..

Good Luck Guys
