But, due to a nominal decrease in the total number of aspirants obtaining marks in the ranges of 600>= and 500>=, the cutoffs are not likely to go up this year.

While it appears that there is a significant jump in the number of candidates scoring 700 and above, other statistics reveal a different story. Aspirants scoring between 650-699 marks dropped by 0.1% year-on-year (YOY) while aspirants scoring between 600-649 marks dropped by 0.4% YOY and aspirants scoring between 550-599 dropped by 0.6% YOY.
