SSC CGL Cut off Analysis

SSC conducts Combined Graduate Level Exam for filling the Class 2 and Class 3 posts in central government (in various ministries, organisations and departments). This exam is conducted only once a year. SSC CGL Exam consists of 4 stages which you need to clear in order to get a government job in central government.

All the exams which we have given till graduation are qualifying in nature. But in this competitive exam, you need to qualify each paper as well as clear SSC CGL Cut off to beat the competition. You need to clear SSC CGL Tier 1 cut off to quality for stage 2 and clear SSC CGL Tier 2 cut off to qualify for stage 3. There are limited seats available to be filled, while lakhs of aspirants apply for those limited posts (25 Lakh Plus). So, SSC CGL Cutoff plays the role of “filter” in SSC CGL Exam process.

SSC CGL Cut off (Understanding Basics)

Instead of directly jumping to numbers, it is necesary to understand basics of the SSC CGL exam pattern and marking scheme. Otherwise, you will be highly confused while checking the previous year SSC CGL cut off marks.

SSC CGL Cut off Marks are not same for all the 32 posts. It is different for some specific posts like Assistant Audit Officer (AAO) and Junior Statistical Officer (JSO).

  • Tier 1 exam is same for all the posts in SSC CGL exam. But still, general trend is that SSC CGL Cutoff for Assistant Audit Officer (AAO) and Junior Statistical Officer (JSO) is higher than other posts.
  • SSC CGL Tier 2 exam is a bit different for JSO and AAO posts. They need to give additional Paper 3 and Paper 4 respectively along with paper 1 and 2 which are compulsory for all posts.

  • SSC CGL Tier 3 is same for all posts (which is a Descriptive paper=Pen and Paper Mode) of 100 marks.

Instead of just clearing the cut off of SSC CGL Tier 1, 2 and 3, your aim must be to score as high as possible in these 3 stages, because:

SSC CGL Merit List : Tier 1 Marks + Tier 2 Marks + Tier 3 Marks

Our aim is not just clearing various stages of SSC CGL exam. Our aim is to :

  1. Be in the Final Merit list of SSC CGL Exam
  2. And get the post of our choice (which needs very high merit)

So, try to score high marks in each stage of SSC CGL exam (Just clearing cut off will not help)!
