      80% questions in all the 3 sections were from 12th class syllabus while just 10% of the questions were from 11th class syllabus.

      As there were no negative marking, so one could have attempted all 150 questions.

      For a well-prepared student, attempting 130 out of 150 questions was not very difficult at an accuracy of 85 to 90%.

      This could result in a score of 150 plus, which is a very good score for securing a seat in the stream of choice in colleges like Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute (VJIT), K J Somaiya and College of Engineering, Pune.

      At a score of 130, one can expect a rank of close to 6000, which will also ensure sure shot admission in Top Govt Engineering Colleges and Universities.

      A score of 100 is also a decent score for fetching a seat in Top 30 Engineering Colleges of Maharashtra.
