## Expert Opinions

•Anybody with 15 correct in verbal is very good. Because the paper was designed to make people attempt a lot of questions.

•It will be surprising  if QA cutoff goes higher than 8-9 questions.

•And LRDI was a real pain too. Again, a 10+ correct in LRDI would be good enough to clear the cutoff.
