Shoeb..the engineer said...

Last time i got 192 RANK but Honestly....and i got certificate after 192 days...lol
At the last point in the Merathan, on the gate wen everyone lined up for the Rank...Actually that time was the deciding moment, The Rank was directly proportional to the no. of friends ahead in the line...For e.g one of my friend was at 193rd position, He got a friend at 125th position in the line, so fortunately he suddenly jumped to 124th Rank :-D
