      ReplyDelete
    38. Cannot agree more with you on this Jisha .I have heard from a few candidates during PO interview who claimed that they had friends who would vote 110-120 in ibps just for fun(though I don't realize as to where the fun factor lie in this). When the polls are based on these voting patterns obviously they tend to be incorrect at least marginally.But then I truly appreciate the efforts taken by administrators of websites to conduct polls and provide an overview.Also, I would request friends who are involved in falsifying data by voting incorrectly to refrain from it and to appreciate noble efforts of other(Admins).

    61. First of all if anybody is following the blog/website then he/she might have some interest in that certain exam.

      Secondly - "I saw one such poll for IBPS PO whr d %age of ppl having above 125 marks is huge 10-15% wch is next to impossible.'

      I have noticed that most of the high scoring candidates follow prep blogs/websites for their preparations while few of the low scoring candiates care about internet or blogs etc.

    63. I admit that there was a mistake but I edited that table within 10 minutes of uploading. I don't think it's a blunder,

      ReplyDelete
    64. We know you all try your best. But u gotta admit that even your predictions are not precise and not entirely to the point

      ReplyDelete
    65. First of all it's not "Prediction". I never used the word "Prediction". It is an analysis based on survey data, past records and present trends. The day this analysis goes away from reality, people will stop reading it and then there is no point of putting so much efforts.

      ReplyDelete
    66. It will be reasoning. Maths English and GK I.e. not current affairs. ..Lucent should be preferred for GK
