these all are rumours that cut of this or that and many students fail in english or urdu and sociology students scored heavily all r rumours. these things are kept in top secret and guys are making guess work.any body can guess that cutoff will be around 900 and generally the students of sociology,pol. science, urdu scored well even in ias just to make these subjects at par with sceince subjects where the marks are scientific.so guys keep you fingers crossed and hope for the best
