  1. Sir I am getting 392.50 in tier 1 & 2.And for AAO post paper 4 I am scoring 85 marks. Is there chances to appear in tier 3. And is this much of score can make me a AAO officer?

  2. Sir I have 2 queries first one is that I have cleared ssc tier-1 exam but when I checked my result I found that I am eligible for paper 3 and 4 also and I don’t have any knowledge regarding these paper. I think during filling up form I mistakenly applied for paper 3 and 4 also. Can I skip the paper 3 and 4 and be still eligible for tier3 exam
    Second is about the code under the sic and aao column. What are the code referring to ?my code is1.
    Plz reply.

  3. I have a doubt, I cleared tier 1 exam and am there a separate cut off for tier 2 exam or is it combined with tier 1 marks..

  4. hi there, i have secured 152 marks. from OBC……. my chances? how much more to score in tier 2 will be safe….

  5. helo i am 33 year old and from ST category, i want apply for 2017 SSCCGL exam( first preperance inspetor tax and excise). am i eligible for applying for the same looking into my age

  6. Sir/Madam,
    Kindly, look into the following queries,
    1. SSC CGL Tier-1 qualified list is released. But, where is check how many marks I got?
    Is SBI going to release any waiting list for clerk posts. If not, then
    how SBI fills its vacancies, if the selected candidates does not join,
    if they had a better opportunity than clerk post?
    3. For RRB
    Assistant Mumbai location has more posts, can I apply there and is it
    good to apply there as I was from Andhra Pradesh. If so, I dont know
    marathi, if selected for the interview how to manage it? Is the bank
    accept to conduct the interview in
    English( Know Hindi too, but less fluent) if I dont the official language?
    Please reply as soon as possible. Awaiting for the reply I thank you in advance.

  7. i probably secured 132 marks in tier 1 and i belong to sc category. by what margin should i clear tier 1? and what should be my score in tier 2 so that i can get at least junior accountant,auditor post?(as i am very poor in typing so might not be eligible for tax assistant posts).

  8. A differently abled student can achieve success with Hard work and determination.

    and Some people who have all organs functioning properly want quotas,
    relaxation in cut offs and low qualifying standards because they have
    ‘caste’ certificate.
    caste certificate …. such a curse..

  9. I have got 124.5 marks ( gen) do I have any chance for tier 2 ? If yea how much should score in tier2 to get css??

  10. There is 90 percent chance that cutoff may be around 100-110. This year there is drop in the number of students who actually gave exam and because paper was bit easier so the cut off may fluctuate.
    I think go for mains part and there you should score around in maths 160-170 and English 155+…

    Hope , I have given the answer to your questions.

  11. Hello! Sir I have 66 marks and I am reserved candidate of OH. So sir there is any chance of mine in tire2 exam . please sir reply.

  19. Last time minimum cut off for interview post was 425/600, this time tier 1 was very easy + vacancy is less compared to previous year , so you can predict yourself

  20. Minimum 290 out of 400 , this time cut off will be around 390/600 for sc , for interview post due to lesser number of vacancies

    Please help.

  51. In case of that confusion , i recommended you to challenge it , because losing 100 won’t make u sad but losing 2.5 mark would make u more sad wishes ?

  52. Yes, I knew the answer was ” under suspicion”, but since no option was there I went with confused, but SSC has given ‘Sad’ 🙁

  53. I took it as XBUB by mistake, but since no specific ans is coming out, you can go with a general option, which does not contain a vowel (CZHK)

  54. There is no specific pattern followed here, but if you add the respective places of each digit in each option, only CZHK will give you an even no…that is all I can make out
    What is the correct ans according to SSC?

  55. Yeah I have submitted, had to wait for some time, then refreshed it several times, but eventually it got submitted.

  56. Its very easy , u need to follow the instructions and keep patience.. there will be 2-3 pause where u might feel everything stopped , but stay for 2 minutes and reload the webpage .. & you will be done .. to add u i think i lost 100 rs. So be calm

  57. Sahil fyi , i did a fresh payment and challenge accepted , but can u please help me how to get refund that earlier amount paid.

  58. SIR, I have got 117 marks in Tier-1 under UR category. If there is any chance for me? If yes, please suggest how my strategy should be for the next level (TIER-2).

  59. Ok, but don’t you think, this should have been the fully correct sentence:
    Her knowledge ‘of’ English gives her ‘a’ great advantage over me.

  60. I tried your method and for the first time I saw the message that the challenge was successfully uploaded.

    However, when I re- logged in for another challenge, I was once again asked to fill the same form (with the same transaction Id on the link). still, I filled again and the same thing is repeating again and again.
    I also copied the link of the successful submission confirmation page and pasted it on another browser (with cleared cache , form fill , history and cookies) and without even logging in or filling a form it still said – that my query had been successfully submitted….lol…. Some major technical issues with this thing!!!!!

  61. At first I thought it’s a great idea and the idea did actually work. I felt so relieved. But then I had to raise objection for another question so I relogged in. Then in the form I saw the same link (containing the same transaction id no) anyways, I proceeded still. Tried your trick and it worked again.

    Just to check once more. I logged in once again. But, without any payment the same page for submission of challenge opened up. And to utter dismay, When I hit the submit button and pressed enter, I just copied that very link and pasted it on another browser (from where I had deleted all history, cookies and form data) . Here too the same message appeared that I have successfully uploaded the database!!! It’s a big technical problem from SSC!
    And I feel even after the confirmation message, my challenge has not been actually uploaded because I can still see the page where I can type in my challenge and reason.

  62. Prophet mohammad. yes my dear! I’m back from 7th century! come let’s do jihad..Don’t you want the 72 virgins? 😉

  63. Riya Bose i tried yesterday several times,it didn’t happen,today at morning,after you submit,then i had to press enter again,else it was remaining like that and it was shown your inquiry has been uploaded.

    It is there na??

  98. Ooo…scaryyyyy! chhod de..kuch nahi hoga tera. Tu fail hai waise bhi. Pata nahi kaha laha se bhikhari aa jate hai.

  99. Sir link for representation srill not working…i have paid money and I can type on the form but it’s not getting submitted…very scared

  100. I got 114 general.Is there any chance to clear for tier 2?There is also 2 questions are wrong of the answer sheet with my answer.

  101. the question says “which of the following is NOT true”
    they have paintings of flora and fauna
    they r in maharashtra

    thy r decorated with buddhist paintings

    all r true except “thy depict the techniques used in ancient india”

  102. Oye Angrezi bolne wale chamar ki aulad. Mera joota abhi tak bana k nahi diya tune!! Aalsi ho gaye hai yeh neech jaat wale.

  103. Tried several times.Not working.I’ve paid 100RS for scrutiny,but i can’t submit the representation.When i do nothing is happening.Can you give me any contact no so i can contact officials.The images are not being uploaded unfortunately.Tried Png,JPEG all formats.I’ll await for a reply.

  104. As per your depiction my answer is correct coz, the question is which one of these is not true about ajanta caves and they are saying that ‘they depict the techniques used in ancient India’.Actually this is true regarding ajanta as the painters usedused TEMPERA (FRESCO)techniques to paint.So how could it be wrong.And the last option says they don’t have flora and fauna which is 100%wrong,youalso posted the same thing where Maya devi’s hairs were adoned by lotus.I am sending you the proofs.Look at them and then suggest me whether i should go for a challenge or not?

  105. Cutoff would be around 120, but still if somehow you make it, it won’t suffice, because the competition is very tough ahead. Better if you clear the cutoff with a sufficient margin.

  106. I don’t know what to do..some people are saying they called SSC and they said it wll work tommorow(they called yesterday) but as you are saying it’s still not working.

  107. I’ve also heard that tier I will be qualifying round and the score will not be added to make the final merit, is it true?

  108. if that’s the case there is nothing wrong with the sentence…
    coz “much too” is correct…i was doubtful abt this part of the sentence
    “be made a joke of”…..
    good luck…:)

  109. no no…the sentence “it is much too important to” is correct am sure abt that ..but i was doubtful abt the other part “be made joke of”
    in that case i think no improvement is needed…the statement is correct..:)

    what are my chances of making it to tier -2 ?
    please do tell me…

  111. Don’t be sorry for that actually i have written too much important but ssc is showing no improvement so i thought to ask about this.

  112. Answer in the key is given as water but not sure on what basis. I felt the odd one is gas as it is invisible. I will have to challenge it unless I get to hear a genuine explanation.

  113. that was a silly mistake i made…am really sorry
    if the answer given by SSC was 9 then it is surely wrong
    kindly challenge the question…:)

  114. Thanks i appreciate ur work , but would u really mind if i say there are 7 horizontal rectangles , the other one is 3*5 which u didn’t mentioned idk why …have a look plss

  119. Very few chances of clearing, and even if you clear on borderline, you will have to score 300+ in T2 to have any hopes of getting any post..

  120. i have one query…i don’t knw if i had applied for statistical investigator assistant audit officer…so even if i did apply do i have to write paper 3 and paper 4?? as ssc notifiation says “Paper-III is only for those candidates who apply for the post of

  129. Sir,
    I got 123 (gen) category
    What is my chance for apearing tier II

  130. भाई, पता तुमको भी है कि तुम्हारा निकल जाएगा, फिर पूछ के क्या फ़ायदा??

  131. 147 obc!? How many marks should one need to get for MEA post of ssc cgl? what should be my score in tier 2!? please help

  132. hi…am sorry i read the sentence wrong….
    I read the sentence as “The Ship ALONG with its crew……” if there was a “along” it should be HAS…
    here it is ….’with its crew’ …with is nothing but “and”
    so ship and its crew HAVE gone….is the correct answer

  133. the confusion is ‘ Actor’ is a masculine word, used only for man…For females it is “Actress’ so, actor should completely come inside the man circle, and doctor word is used for both males n females.. What do you say

  134. please don’t call me sir am a student myslef, just like u r..:)
    coming to ur question u have a decent chance of making it to tier 2 but even if u did qualify u have to score a minimum of 320+ out of 400 in TIER 2…so keep that in mind and carry out preparation..GOOD LUCK!!

  135. the subject in the sentence is ‘The ship’ so it takes singular verb
    so the answer is “……HAS gone to the depth of the sea’

    as for the second one it’s difficult post a pic here

  136. Plz help me in solving this question:-(It is much too important to be made a joke of)… there any improvement needed in this question?

  137. Sir ..I am getting 92.5 ..Sc category.. Sir pls reply any chance to qualify? Shall I start to prepare tier2?plss reply..if hope is there means.. I will do more preparation for tier2.

  138. The Ship with its crew has/have gone to the depth of the sea? What would be right?

    Man, Actor, Doctor..correct venn diagram for this ?

    Please share any objections you have found in Sept1 II shift paper.

  139. To all those who are asking abt their chances of making it to TIER 2
    No matter how much u score in TIER 1, u have to score a minimum of 300+ in TIER 2 to be able to hope for a job, because that’s how the competition is out there.. this is applicable to all categories
    So kindly check the cut offs provided by mockbank and if u think ur satisfying the criterion start preparing for TIER 2 or else start preparing for CGL 2017

  140. probably early next week or in the first week of October

    different websites post different cut offs..from what I have heard a lot of people have scored exceptionally good marks, so there will be a surge in cut offs this year in all categories
    I myself scored 138 and I belong to SC not that my score is exceptional but it is a good score for an sc candidate

    so as i said earlier ur in border and it can go either way, that is why i asked u to wait for the results

  141. when they are suppose to declare the result… but most of them said that cutt 0ff would be somewhere 77.5 to 85

  142. according to the question the correct equation for the answer is
    48 – 5 x 8 + 10 ÷ 2
    applying BODMAS rule the answer simplifies to 3

  143. “They told me that they had build a new house”
    The sentence is an indirect speech, when ur reporting a sentence the tense changes
    “we have built a new house” is in present perfect tense. it changes to past perfect when reporting it to a 3rd person
    “They told me that they had built a new house”
    here “have” becomes “had”, “build” becomes “built”

  144. Please tell me the correct answer for this:
    Her knowledge in English (A) / gives her great advantage (B) / over me. (C) / No Error (D)
    1) A
    2) B
    3) C
    4) D

  145. Please let me know that isnt both have built and had built grammatically correct for this question ?
    93.In each of the questions, four alternatives are given for the
    Idiom/Phrase. Choose the alternative which best expresses the meaning of
    the Idiom/Phrase
    and click the button corresponding to it.
    They told me that they had build a new house.
    1) have built
    2) have build
    3) had built
    4) No improvement
    Correct Answer: had built
    Candidate Answer: have built

  146. unfortunately the images are not being uploaded here.Question was based on a bar graph,electrification of villages,percentage based questions.

  147. Does anyone know the answer for this question asked on August 31 3rd shift??

    Question 15.If – means ÷ , + means x , ÷ means – , x means +, then which of the following equations is correct?

    1) 43 x 7 ÷ 5 + 4 – 8 = 25
    2) 48 ÷ 5 + 8 x 10 – 2 = 03
    3) 36 x 4 – 12 + 5 ÷ 3 = 420
    4) 42 + 5 ÷ 6 x 8 – 3 = 28

    Correct Answer:
    48 ÷ 5 + 8 x 10 – 2 = 03

    Someone please explain..

  148. You have a decent chance I guess. Last year tier 1 general cutoff was 102.25. this time, the expected mark displayed in MB site is 105-115 and it is almost the same displayed in other sites too. So you still have decent chance of clearing Tier I.

  149. I scored 130.5… General… Do I have chance of clearing? Won’t the cutoff be higher than that mentioned here?

  150. Could i make it or not,please somebody reply,cause i have my ibps po exam in october,if i will not make it then i should better focus on

  151. yes it is there.estimated cut off for ex would be 70 around. i am scoring 125 i am too looking forward for tier 2 under X catogary

  152. Superb bro!! don’t wait for result if u are sure that u’ll get 120 or more. U have already achieved 60% benchmark. Start prep. for tier -2.
    Good luck.

  153. Sir ,

    Expecting 129 with corrections …
    I m from ur category .
    Kindly suggest accordingly as I m getting confused about preparation for tier 2 .. Should I start or wait for tier 1 result

  154. Ya,the ques about seats in rajya sabha,i marked 260 but it is showing candidate answer as 250. I was like wtf.

  155. 122(63 correct 8 wrong) gen category,actually i am an ibps aspirant given ssc first time,left all those trigo and elevation ques,could i make it,and if yes what i should focus on for tier 2,and please mention any mistake in my english,cause thats how i learn.

  156. Amit sir.. Am getting 92.5 Sc category pls reply me any chance me ..I will start preperation from now itself for tier2

  157. Sir plsssssss reply me.. If definite chance is there.. I will start preparation for tier2 itself pls reply me

  158. The difficulty level was similar across all papers, as what I have gathered. The sets of papers were similar across all regions. Even if the normalization is a possibility, SSC might look into it. But personally, I feel we are bad at putting things like normalization in place.

  159. Its a borderline case, you must keep your prep on, because ultimately you will have to score very high to get an interview post.

  160. I am getting 164, UR category. How much should I aim further in T-2? I am only aiming for AAO post, and I am from engg background. Also guide me regarding the source for studying Accountancy..

  161. Sir, my score is 148.5 in tier 1. There are 2 questions where I believe the answers given are incorrect. Is it that only if I raise an objection would I stand a chance to gain more marks or by default SSC will consider it, even if someone else raises an objection from that slot?

  162. Hello sir.
    My marks are 107.5 UR and also there are certain questions which are right according to my calculation but given wrong …
    What is my chance of clearing the cutoff ?
    And what about wrong answers?

  163. Sir I am getting 125 [UR] while answer of one question is given wrong and according to me my answer is correct.
    Question 14.A*B means multiply A by B; A@B means divide A by B, A?B means add B to A and A=B means subtract B from A.
    Then find the value of 10*10 = 5*10 ? 50@10

    A*B का अर्थ गुणा, @ का अर्थ भाग, ? का अर्थ योग, A=B का अर्थ A – B है तो
    10*10= 5*10 ? 50@10 का मान ज्ञात करें ?
    1) 100
    2) 45
    3) 1000
    4) 55
    Correct Answer: 55
    Candidate Answer: 45
    There are 3 questions for which my answers are changed, means candidate answer is different from what i have marked in the exam. Give ur suggestion.

  164. OK let me put it in another way [let me dispense with circles], exams were conducted from 27 – 11, approx 14- 15 days, each day 2-3 slots, lets assume roughly there will be around 40 different slots with different set of questions with different set of difficulty, so it is safe to assume there WILL be questions of varying difficulties and hence corresponding scores, so I was wondering if there is any chance of normalization of scores.

  165. Hi, I have seen interesting trend in no of marks scored, I appeared for SSC CGL from Karnataka/Kerela cricle and my score is 118 [ST], whereas my friends from Delhi and acquaintances have reported scores of 168, 156, 165 etc. average being around 150+, whereas in south circle it averages around 120 [few samples], so my main concern is, will there be normalization of marks across circles or will it be as it is … Also I happened to come across a paper from my friend in Delhi circle and it was breeze, in a sense, direct formula based questions with no or negligible calculations, I was amazed at the simplicity of paper and and was ruing if I could have opted for Delhi centre.
    Does my concern hold any ground or was it a bad day for me, if anybody could throw some light it would be of immense help. Share some experience.

  166. The result might be out by sept last week, as UPSC has also declared the result early this time, despite there being more than10 lakh candidates. Also the ssc exam was online so result processing will take much less time.
    Secondly, no of vacancies is around 10000, dont by stats earlier released by SSC. It did not have vacancies of some major departments. Also the delay in exam will result in more vacancies being created.
    And lastly, DO NOT assume cutoff will go down by any means. SSC was aware there would be server lag, therefore they kept the level down so that candidates would still have enough time to complete their exam.

  167. brother if u get 10 wrong your score will be 103, being from st category you have a fair enough chance.I would suggest start preparing for tier 2 as the result might be declared in the last week of sept.

  168. Q.When will the result be declared? (As previously it took 43 days, hoping this year the same!)
    Q. Total number of vacancies?

    Some factors that will reduce the cut off this time-
    1. Slow responce of server (nearly 2 or 3 seconds) switching b/w one question to another. (Hoping this issue sorted out before mains)
    2. As the final notification published in the 1st week of August highlighted, it is upto SSC to decide whether pre would be qualifying or not!
    Take it easy guys, whatever comes, it will be good.
    Best of luck to all of you

  169. i attempted 64 questions belongs to st category out of which 5 -10 questions may be wrong.What are my chances of passing the exam please tell? please reply Mr. sahil Choudhary

  170. Why does that bother u? That boasting fellow is boasting about tire 1 marks only… n i guess u r not foolish enough to know that total marks of all the levels matter for being selected.

  171. 3800 when some departments havent released their vacancies,especially CBEC (the biggest one) and because the exam was delayed there will be more…it will go past 8600 dont worry

  172. you are right…ideally it should be 125-130…but the level was so easy i m afraid it might be even higher…

  173. if 20 go wrong u would score 116, whereas cutoff would be around 125-130 this time…pray u dont get as many wrong

  174. sir i have attempted 83 q and max 20q can go wrng
    i am ur category
    what are my chances
    and my exam was on 27 aug 10.00am

  175. 100- 105 is way low which you have predicted. I think it will be around 125-130 this time, considering the simplicity of the paper. I have myself attempted 95 questions and in the past have been scoring 125-130 in Prelims..

  176. for analyzing cut offs pre we have to note some points::
    1. The exam was comparatively simpler than previous year.
    2. Number of vacancies are less than previous year i.e only 3800 comparative to 8600 prev year
    3. more competition than prev year
    4. there will be no interview thats why shortlisting of students will also low.

  177. Sir, Greetings!!!!

    I can get about 125 marks cat UR in CGL. I know can qualify tier 1 but it is not merely qualify I have to get a seat. Can U explain how many marks I need to get in tier 2 for sure selection. Is there chance of overall selection to get 125 marks in tier 1 ???? pls reply me asap.

  178. it was mentioned Tier 3 is compulsory for everybody.But how will they differentiate interview posts from non interview posts? And could u please gimme an idea of how many marks to secure to get the job.. i mean not just cut off marks, for each category

  179. apne dekha nahin kitna questions attempt and kitna unattempted likha last pe …saved hota hai automatically

  180. Sir ,why showing less expected cutoff as level of exam is easy this time ,I think it would be around 125-130 for general category,even it seems less to me
    As ,everyone is boasting 85+ attempt with reasonable accuracy..:)…..:)

  181. Sir exam time over hone par mai submit buttor click nahi kar payi seedha exit wala page open ho gaya. Kya ibps ki tarah cgl m autimatic paper submission ka option hai??

  182. Due to error in the SSC software online exam, I was not able to save many answers. I even tried clicking more than 10 times to save and proceed to next question but unable to do so. I reported the issue to the concerned invigilators but they could not rectify the problem and they called their senior from a different room. After a while, the so-called senior advised me to click on the button ‘TAG’,click all the answer option ie. 1,2,3 and 4 and then select the right answer and click on the question number displayed on the right hand side. Surprisingly, it worked for a few questions but consuming too much time. After complaining for several times, one of the invigilators asked me to skip the questions. But how could I skip the answers that I knew. Later he advised me to click on ‘Tag’ button saying that it is same as ‘save’. Time was running out and I had only 29 minutes left before they provided me a different system but the same error continued. Not just that when I clicked ‘Next button’ it often skip one to two questions.
    Very frustrated. I could save only 56 questions. I beleived I could do 70 to 80 questions if there was no error.
    The invigilator felt pity on me and said that the error was not from their end but from SSC. I really did not satisfy with this system of exam.

    Centre: MS Infoline, Noida.
    Exam date: 4th Sept.
    Time: 4.15 PM shift.

  183. i attempted 64 questions belongs to st category out of which 5 -10 questions may be wrong.What are my chances of passing the exam please tell? the reason for lesser number of attempt was that the machine was slow and the question pattern that ssc design was not in a proper way like the scroll button which i was it difficult to scrol and there is not down cursor in the scroll button …much time took me to do that

  184. I attempted 82 questions of which 10 15 may be wrong. What are my chances of passing the exam please tell? I am from general category.

  185. In what context. Qualifying in nature means you just need too qualify and marks will not be added in final selection

  186. Really?? Heard 120 r 130??? Is it true sir??? Wen paper was easy r avg it ws 102 so now 120 due to many ppl attempting is this true???
