Name of the section
Number of questions
The introduction of sectional time limits will decrease the cut off by a bit. However, the increase in the competition will overpower the advantage offered by the introduction of sectional time limits. If the level of the exam remains the same, we can expect the cut off to increase by a mark or two over the cut off in 2017.
The sectional cut off for all the sections were below 10. A score above 12 in all the sections can be considered safe.
