It's really hard to predict. Some trains have more cancellations than others. In addition, some compartments have more births than others. An easy way to find out the likelihood of your waitlist ticket being confirmed (or even advancing to RAC status) is to go to India Rail Info website and sign up. Go to the PNR Forum tab and enter your PNR (passenger reservation number) where specified and click on "Post PNR for Prediction/Analysis".

It will automatically retrieve the details of your booking.

It is actually very unpredictable specially with 3 A/C coaches as the seats are limited plus it is time of Summer Vacations in India and people tend to travel a lot during this season. What you can do is to wait till 25-26th may if it gets clear then it is fine otherwise ask your agent to book the ticket on emergency quota where the tickets are a bit expensive but at least you will get a confirmed ticket.
