CGL Tier II exam which was held today for the all candidates other than statistical and compiler.

Only such candidates who are found eligible after the prelims or Tier I exam of SSC were called for the Tier II exam of CGL. This year CGL exam Tier II was held with new added syllabus. Few new chapters were added in the syllabus of CGL like geometry,Trignometry and Coordinate Geometry 

SSC CGL Tier II exam was held for Two separate papers i.e. Math and English of 200 marks each. This year as per expectation paper was tougher for Mathematics where as English was scoring.

In paper-I Mathematics question were easy but it was lengthy and time taking. Question were asked from almost all the topics mentioned in the SSC syllabus of CGL. The distribution of question in SSC Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Tier II were as like :

Mathematics was overall very lengthy to solve, there were lot of calculation. Normally the average rate of attempting the math paper in CGL Tier II will not be more than 65+. If any one scoring more than 65+ in math. may secure his ranking for SSC with decent score in English.

Level of preparation has made a great difference in this year CGL Tier II.All those candidates who have prepared according to syllabus of the SSC has done very good in exam. Where as all such candidates who were based on coaching institute for preparation are failed to en cash. 

After reviewing the candidates performance in the exam we have found that there were many candidates who found Math paper a little lengthy. Where

as the first paper Mathematics was tricky & lengthy. 

We believe that the cutoff for the SSC CGL Tier II will Be something like :

Mathematics : 60-65+

English : Around 90-95+

Overall Cutoff : 290-295+

I have been reviewing the SSC CGL exam for previous 4 Years and What I analyze that only such candidates who have scored well in this written paper get the call from SSC with their opted post ?

This time SSC prelims exam was little tougher and maximum of candidates have scored average.Difference of marks between the candidates in prelims are hardy anything more than 10+.

It means candidates who make the difference in Tier II will ringe in overall ranking. What I believe that one can’t expect the interview marks in SSC exam ? That is generally average for all the candidates. A good marks in interview will boost candidates overall ranking.

Candidates may share their exam experiences and expected marks of SSC CGL Tier II here. We would try to find out the exact cutoff for SSC tier II so that you will get more time to analyze about your post option and Interview.
