CGL Tier-1 2017 Vs CGL Tier-1 2016
  1. Time - Last year, 75 minutes were given for solving 100 questions. However, This year, Students got only 60 minutes for solving 100 questions. It will definitely impact the cut-off.
  2. Level of Questions- Last year, The level of questions were extremely easy. It was so easy that most of the students were able to attempt 85+ questions with ease. However, The story is not same this year. SSC increased the level of questions in Maths and English due to which an attempt of 75-80 is considered good. As you can see, It will also impact the cut-Off.
  3. Number of Students Actually Appeared in the Exam- It won't affect the cut-Off because almost same number of students have taken the exam this year. Last year, around 15 Lakh students appeared in the exam. The data of this year is also almost same.
