sorry for disturbing so late

53rd question is wrong and so is answer there are more than one credit rating agency.
reference: http://www.indiaonestop.com/creditrating.htm

The question is on Credit Information and answer is CIBIL. Now RBI has given clearance to another company also (didn't remember). Please change in Original ones also else we will read that mistake

varun reddy said...

Brijwanth:

Credit Rating Agency - CRISIL
Credit Information Bureau - CIBIL

Are yo sure the question is on Credit Information bureau????

Hi All,

Could anyone let me know if 185 out of 250(excluding Objective English since it wont be considered in the merit) would be a good score to qualify for the Allahabad PO 2010 looking at the competition and easy Paper???.....Also, i have heared from some people that written english score could be considered incase of close scores, is it true??....Expecting your quick reply on this....Regards/Vikas
