SSC CGL Tier 1 2016: Expected Answer key & Cut off Merit List :- Staff Selection Commission has released the answer key for the exam of Combined Graduate Level Tier 1 2016. All most all the aspirants have calculated their marks on the basis of correct answers given on the official website of the commission. Now take a look at the expected cut off and when will the results be declared.


The commission will announce the result of CGL 2016 tier 1 examination most probably in the first week of the October.  It is because SSC has said the Tier 2 exam will tentatively be held in November. It is safe to assume that SSC CGL result will be coming out early in the month of October.

A total of 14.25 lakh candidates are reported to actually have appeared for the examination out of approximate 25 lakh who had applied. SSC released the answer keys last week on Sept 21 and candidates were allowed to make representations till 26th September.

Cutoff of CGL tier-1 exam:  It is expected to be somewhere between 112-122 marks. Most of candidates are saying to have scored at least 130 marks based on their evaluation off official answer keys. Now, how high or low the cut off will go, that will be known when SSC officially announces the result and the cut-off.

The results will be announced in merit list format, shortlisting the candidates who will secure marks above a minimum set cut-off marks. Easier the exam is, higher the number of candidates obtaining high marks will be and the cut off marks will then be set on the upper level. The tougher the exam is, cut off is likely to go down.

The process of making representations ended on 26th Sept. It is now considering that SSC will take few days to sort out the representations.
