The SSC MTS exam last year was full of incidents. The exam which was supposed to be conducted on April and May last year had to be postponed. The reason for doing so was due to some paper leak issues. The applicants had applied for the exams way back in 2016. They had to appear in the SSC MTS in April May 2017. But was postponed and re conducted on the second half of the last year. The students after the exam are waiting for the declaration of the cut of marks. The exam was conducted from September 16 to the last part of October for almost one and half month of marathon race.
SSC MTS Cut off marks 2017 details
The number of students who applied for the SSC MTS Tier 1 exam was close to seventy lakh. Conducting exams for such a huge amount of students was a herculean task to do. But SSC did great job by conducting the exam without any problems. The exam was conducted in three shifts.
Now after the exams are over it is time for the SSC MTS Cut off marks. Calculating cut off marks itself is a difficult task to do. For candidates it is a subject of great confusion. The cut off marks depend upon several factors such as the level of competition, complexity or toughness of the question paper, total number of candidates appearing, total vacancies released etc.
Let me explain a bit. Suppose there are a thousand students appearing for a hundred vacancies. Then if we calculate the SSC MTS cut off marks in this case we will see that 10 students are competing for 1 post. But let us consider a different scenario. Let a thousand students are appearing for only 10 posts. Then we will see that the number of students competing for a single post is 100. So the cutoff marks in the first case will be less, but in the second case since the competition is more hence the commission will be forced to increase the cut off marks. So in the first case if the SSC MTS cut off mark was 65 then in the next case the cut off may be raised above 85 or so.
There are different regions in the SSC and every region has its own cut off marks. So if one state has very high cut off marks, another state will have very low cut off marks. The SSC MTS cut of marks differ for different states depending on numerous factors.
