typing mistake

1. BHUVAN BAM

shubhra mam ..
Does the marks of first slot candidates and other slot candidate differ ? ( Assuming subsequent slot candidates know the Q type and trick involved )?

1. I am not sure.
But I dont think that any extra marks are given to the candidates having exam on 1st day 1st shift.
Last year I got many reviews that many were not able to clear the exam who had exam on 1st day 1st shift.

2. U had on 1st day 1st shift ???

1. BHUVAN BAM

2. Yes Reasoning is always tricky. Hope for best. But if it is missed this time, at least u have experience now that what not to do in exams. ðŸ™‚
