EP’s Comment

Remember, Accuracy does matter and the Data Interpretation section has the worst feedback. So if you are wondering, what to do with your below average attempts, don’t worry! It does not matter if you have attempted 80 or 55 as long as your accuracy is high. Negative marking plays a big role in these exams. So keep calm and focus on your next target.

One thing, you should always pat your back since you have appeared in the most difficult and premium Bank Recruitment Exam. This experience, this adrenaline rush will help you do awesome in the coming days.

Its really, really difficult to predict the SBI PO Mains 2017 Cut-off because of many factors. Moreover, you have given your best. Even if the predicted cut-off is higher than your attempt, you cannot do anything now. So lets just focus & ace the upcoming exams.
