SSC CHSL Cut Off 2018-19: Factors Affecting The Cut Off

Let’s take a look at the factors responsible for this year’s cut off of SSC CHSL exam:

1. The Level of exam

The difficulty level of an exam is a crucial factor in deciding the cutoff. The SSC CHSL 2018-19 exam was moderate for some shifts while difficult in other and as it was conducted in over 25 shifts, the level of Tier I exam can play an important role in SSC CHSL Cut off.

2. Normalization of marks

The most important deciding factor for SSC CHSL cut off 2019 will be “Normalization”. This is 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 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 appeared in the exam

As seen from the data given in the above table, approx 13.17 lakh candidates appeared in the Tier I exam. 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 2018-19 cut off.

4. The Number of Vacancies

The total number of vacancies for SSC CHSL 2018-19 exam is not declared by the commission till date. We can expect more than 6k vacancies for 2018-19 as well.
