So what are the factors that decide the cut off of the exam? We will discuss the various factors responsible for deciding the SSC CGL cut off for tier II 2018-2019.

Tier I exam is of prime importance for deciding the cut off of the exam. Last year, the exam level of the SSC CGL was quite easy to moderate. The only difficult section of the exam was quantitative aptitude. The English section if the exam was quite easy.

The marks in the SSC CGL exam are normalized and the normalization has become the important factor for determining the SSC cut off. Last year for the first time, the normalization technique was introduced by the SSC CGL board and used during the SSC CGL tier 1 result.

Since a large number of students appear for this exam, the exam was conducted in multiple shifts by the commission. The procedure for the allocation of the examination shift to the candidates is random and the formula for the calculation of the final score of the candidates in the multishift examination is:

This formula has helped a lot of students and in the tier I a lot of students marks were increased by the use of this technique
