Factors Affecting SSC CHSL Cut Off
Let’s take a look at the factors responsible for the cut off of the SSC CHSL exam in the coming years:
1. The Level of exam
The difficulty level of an exam is a crucial factor in deciding the cutoff. Like last year, the SSC CHSL exam was moderate for some shifts while difficult for others. The level of Tier I exam can play an important role in SSC CHSL Cut off.
2. Normalization of marks
It was the first time when marks are normalized in SSC CHSL 2018-19 Tier I exam. To make sure that the commission is fair to all candidates, normalization of marks would be done. As we all know, SSC already adopted this earlier in its previous exam namely SSC CGL, SSC CPO, etc and we have also seen an increase of over 30-40 marks after the normalization. Hence, normalization is bound to increase the SSC CHSL cut-off.
3. Number of candidates who appeared in the exam
Approx 13.17 lakh candidates appeared in the Tier I exam in the previous year. In SSC CHSL 2017 exam, a total of approx 26 lakh candidates appeared in Tier I out of which only 48k candidates qualified for the Tier II exam. The numbers can be seen to be pretty astonishing and hence, it can also be an important factor for SSC CHSL cut-off.
4. The Number of Vacancies
The total number of vacancies for the SSC CHSL 2019-20 exam is 4893 declared by the commission till date.
