Final Exam

Minimum Marks of the Written Qualified Candidate (Subject to 20 marks in each Subject)
Total Minimum Marks of last recommended candidate

● Now, candidates we have to play very safe and prepare those
subjects thoroughly which have more importance and will help us to score good marks so that we would be able to clear the cutoff and shall have SSB interview lined up.
● Paper 1 i.e English has very important role to play in clearing the written exam as the level of the paper is easy to moderate and you can easily attempt all question and score good marks.
● After that comes the most significant Paper II i.e General knowledge, this paper decides whether you will clear the written part or not. In this paper majority of candidates sit idle and try to guess the answer because the level of difficulty is pretty high. You have to just cross over 20 marks out of 100, provided you have done good in your English and Mathematics paper. It covers all general knowledge under the roof. We have mentioned the syllabus earlier in this article.
● Last exam is the Paper III Mathematics Exam and all those who are good and find it easy to clear the minimum cutoff i.e scoring at least 20 marks out 100 have upper hand. Some Candidate who are good in Mathematics even score good marks in this but simultaneously you have to score good marks in the earlier subjects as well so that you have your overall score more than the expected cutoff. Level of Maths is moderate to difficult and questions till 10th standard are asked but they have a bit high level standard. So those candidates who find it difficult to crack the exam should make their strategy very carefully so that they score at least 20 marks and cover up the overall cutoff by scoring good marks in General knowledge and English exam. Below we will talk about how to prepare for these sections.
