Vyapam Sub Engineer 2018 Cut Off Predictor Result For Mechanical Engineering

  “SUB-ENGINEER EXAM -2018”

CUT-OFF PREDICTOR RESULT

Hi Guys ,

This year many of you have appeared for sub-engineer examination -2018 which was conducted by PEB Madhya Pradesh and we sincerely hope that all of you have done your best and fared well.

Based on the data collected of the marks being obtained by students and  comparing the difficulty level of sub-engineer examination -2018 paper with sub-engineer examination -2017 paper and  more previous years paper and detailed analysis of this year examination in each slot.

Now , we have come up with the following marks as the expected cut-off in the respective category.

Based on our analysis, the number of questions and weightage of each subject, TEAM AEC is giving marks to each subject out of 10 , which is based on institute’s curriculum for classroom courses, study material provided by institute and also the toughness level of questions.

 

Mechanical Engineering

This year Mechanical Engineering exam was held in only one shift as on 2-sept-2018 in the morning shift. According to our team and our expert panel the paper was bit easier compared to last year. The detailed analysis is given below-

As compared to previous year question paper some changes are observed , this year two questions came from General Physics , two questions came from CAD/CAM in the technical section.

The detailed analysis is given below –

EXPECTED CUT-OFF As vacancies in this year are too less in number as compared to last year. In Some departments electrical and mechanical seats are common and this year mechanical engineering technical section was easy compared to electrical engineering exam. So mechanical stream students will not be in favour of normalization which will be upto 2 marks.

  • Topper marks may lie between (168-174) out of 200.
  • Expected cut-off for UR category is between (157-163) marks out of 200.
  • Expected cut-off for UR Female is above 144 marks out of 200.
  • Expected cut-off for OBC is above (148 – 155) marks out of 200.
  • Expected cut-off for OBC Female is above 141 marks out of 200.
  • Expected cut-off for SC is between (133-139) marks out of 200.
  • Expected cut-off for SC Female is above 126 marks out of 200.
  • Expected cut-off for ST is above (117-125) marks out of
  • Expected cut-off for ST Female is above  112 marks out of 200.

 

 

Note – This is the expected cut –off which  may vary upto ± 2 marks .
