Let’s take a look at the factors by which we came to the conclusion for SSC CGL 2018 expected cutoff.

Deciding Factors For SSC CGL 2018 Expected Cutoff

1. No. of Candidates appeared

As seen from the above table, the number of candidates who appeared for the SSC CGL exam has decreased over the years. The official data by SSC depicts that there has been a 43.5% decrease in the candidates who appeared from 2016 to 2018-19 exam. The SSC CGL 2018 exam that was conducted recently in 2019 witnessed an overall attendance of only 32.23% as compared to 51.01% in CGL 2017. Needless to say, the number of candidates appeared for the exam is taken to be a deciding factor in determining the cutoff for the SSC CGL 2018-19 Cutoff.

2. The Level of exam

The level of exam is an important factor while deciding the cutoff. The SSC CGL 2018 examination was of a moderate level. For some candidates, it was on the tougher side as compared to previous years as some questions were tricky. Considering the level of the exam, the cutoff may be shifted to a lower side.

3. Normalization of marks

The most important deciding factor this year would be “Normalization”. SSC has decided to normalize the marks and this is the first time that SSC will be normalizing marks in SSC CGL exam.

Since the number of candidates appearing in multiple shifts in the examinations conducted by the Commission is large and the procedure for allocation of examination shift to candidates is random, the following formula will be used by the  Commission to calculate final score of candidates in the multi-shift examinations:
SSC has also used this method in the SSC CPO examination where we have seen a tremendous increase in the marks of some candidates (Increase of up to 10-12 marks) who appeared for the CPO exam. Candidates who didn’t perform as per their expectations need not be disheartened as your marks can be normalized further.
