What should be your Score in SSC CHSL to Crack The Exam?

The official notification for the SSC CHSL Recruitment 2024 for 3172 vacancies has been released on 8th April 2024 and the exam is slated to be held on multiple dates from 1st to 12th July 2024. After filling out the application form, there are many questions in the minds of the candidates. One of the most important among these is what should their score be in order to crack the exam. The answer to this question depends on many factors and varies for each category of candidates. In this article, let us explore these factors in this article.
The selection process for the SSC CHSL Recruitment consists of two stages i.e. Tier 1 and Tier 2. It is fortuitous to gain a safe and high score in the Tier 1 Exam as the number of competitors is on the continuous rise while the number of vacancies is going to be scanty. As the Tier 1 Computer-Based Examination will be conducted in multiple shifts, marks scored by the candidates will be normalized. It is high time to think practically because scoring near the margin of the cut-off won’t take you longer in the competition to get a desirable job.
If you are determined and possess a conspicuous vision, just go through the below-provided data adjoining previous years’ SSC CHSL Tier-1 Cut off along with the overall cut-off of the final stage. It is enough to let you know that Tier-1 is the real game-changer as the majority of candidates think of the Tier 2 exam as an uphill task and lag behind in scoring adequate marks.
So, one must be aware of the SSC CHSL Previous Years cut off and how it differs over the years. Knowing the previous years’ cut-off surely helps in determining the possibility in the future and the extra effort one needs to put in the exam preparation in order to score well.  This is hopefully a safe score to lead you ahead in the race and thus have endowed a clear mindset to prepare for Tier-2 instead of wasting much time in anticipating first and then being out of the race eventually. This data will definitely help in obtaining a clear vision for the candidates about the score they need to score to qualify for the examination.
