  3. I really can not be sure about whether finally you will get an interview post or not.....it totally depends on yours and others interview performance.....

    It depends on how many candidates are there between 424.5 and 435.75 in your category which I think is Unreserved...3233 are the number of UR candidates called for Interview....and around 2300 UR candidates would be finally taken....rest 900 would be eliminated from the race.....

    I know how bad you would be feeling at this point of time as I am fully aware about how much effort it needs to score 435.75 ........

    I wish you BEST OF LUCK...... Feel free to ask any more of your doubts.....
