  • Mohit

    I’ve scored 98 in unreserved category. Any hope of getting a call in accounts if not for general?

    • In accounts u’ve definitely a good chance.maybe,u will through for A & D posts as well.

  • rinku

    hi have scored 98.75 according to the answer sheet provided by ssc and belongs to UR
    . any hope of call for main exam for general or depot

    • Chances are there but I can’t say for sure as last time it was around 105, but let’s hope for the best.

    • Chances are there bt I can’t say for sure as last time it was around 105, but let’s hope for the best.

      • rinku

        THANKS bro.

  • shuvam

    I got 88.50 in OBC category , i had applied for Genaral and Depo , is there any chance to get selected in PT????

    • maybe, u will through,but will have to do a great effort in main exam. be hopeful & watch will be selected for main or not.

      • shuvam

        Thanks subha !!!
        You have good chance to get selected finally , all the best.

        • in previous occasion I scored 125.25 in prelim.despite getting that marks & overcoming the final cut off marks after the main exam,I couldn’t get job because I had to get 0 .75 marks, I’m not sure of this time with 120 marks,definitely I’ll try my best to get the job.but it was such a pathetic feeling of helplessness.

          • Really bad luck. That shows the level of competition in these exams. How much you got in final exam and interview? I wish you success in this exam.

          • there was no interview,only skill test.I scored 257.25 & only applied for post code A.cut off for post code A was 258(lowest).

          • alok yadav

            hi subha i check key and got 107 marks in prelims so how much score in second paper require to qulify for interview .i see previous result and it goes around to got 260+ mark and minimum 245+
            i need 150+ in second paper.

  • cut off for A or D might be lesser than previous year,I think,it would be 100 to 103. I am getting 120 a/c to the answer keys of ssc. candidates who will score more than 130 for ur will have the greater chance to be selected after the main exam & skill test.

    • alok yadav

      what will be the final cutoff for interview aftre second paper as i got 107 mark in prelims for obc category

      • there is no interview,only computer skill test.try to get in main beyond 240 & if u pass the skill test,u will definitely be selected.

  • vacancy for A & D for ur is 1426 which is slightly more than previous year & question level is more or less same,so cut off for ur for these post would be 100 to 103.
