I attempted 48 questions in exam? I belongs to SC Caste. is there any chance to qualify for tier2?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 11th Mar, 2020
Your marks cannot be predicted on the basis of the number of questions to attempt, firstly I will suggest you to wait for the release of official answer key  then you can probably crosscheck the number of correct  answers and can predict your expected score then you can compare it with the past year analysis of cut off which may give you hope for chances.
Best of luck.
