The TNPSC Group 2 Cutoff will be released by the Commission after the completion of the exam process. The Commission released the TNPSC Group 2 cutoff for all the categories separately. The Commission releases the TNPSC Group 2 cutoff in PDF on its official website only. The Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission will release the TNPSC Group 2 cutoff 2024 with the declaration of results. The Commission is expected to conduct the TNPSC Group 2 exam 2024 in August 2024. The Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission releases the category-wise and post-wise TNPSC Group 2 cutoff with the result. The candidates are suggested to compare their marks with their category cutoff. The TNPSC Group 2 cutoff is the marks of the last selected candidate in a particular category. The candidates who score equal to or better than the category cutoff will be declared passed in the exam and promoted to the next phase of the examination.

The candidates should refer to the cutoffs of previous years so that they can anticipate the competition in the exam. We can also say that the cutoff is the minimum marks required to get promoted for the next phase of the TNPSC Group 2 exam. TNPSC Group 2 cutoff depends on the following three factors.

  1. Number of vacancies in the exam
  2. The difficulty level of the paper
  3. Number of candidates who appear in the exam

The number of vacancies plays a vital role in arriving at the cutoff. Higher the number of vacancies will be inversely proportional to the cutoff for all the categories. Higher vacancies imply a lower cutoff for each stage of the examination. The second factor is the difficulty level of the question paper. Question paper difficulty level is inversely proportional to the cutoff. Easy paper means a higher cutoff for the exam. The third factor works only there when the number of candidates appearing in the exam is less than the number of vacancies. In that case, the cutoff can be done away with.

Q:   What is the Cutoff in the TNPSC Group 2 exam?

A:

The candidates should note that to qualify in the TNPSC Group 2 exam, they need to breach the TNPSC Group 2 cutoff of their category. The TNPSC Group 2 is the marks of the last selected candidate in a particular category.

How to Check TNPSC Group 2 Cut Off 2024?

TNPSC Group 2 cut-off is very important for the candidates preparing for the TNPSC Group 2 exam. It signifies the difficulty level of the question paper and gave an idea about the marks required for selection in the Group 2 exam. The candidates can check the TNPSC Group 2 cut-off by following the procedure given below.

Step 1. Visit the official website of TNPSC-www.tnpsc.gov.in

Step 2. Go to the right navigation and click on the result tab

Step 3. Click the cut off link given under the result tab

Step 4. Click on “TNPSC Group 2 Cut-off” link appearing on the screen

Step 5. Download the TNPSC Group 2 Cut-off PDF

Step 6. Take a printout of the TNPSC Group 2 cut-off PDF for future reference

The TNPSC Group 2 cut-off is arrived at after the exam is conducted. It differs from the minimum qualifying marks mentioned in the official TNPSC Group 2 notification. Minimum qualifying marks as mentioned in the official notification are the minimum marks required to remain eligible for the selection. The cut-off marks are the marks required to get promoted to the next phase or the final selection.

See here: TNPSC Group 2 exam pattern

The candidates can be disqualified in the exam even after scoring the minimum qualifying marks but if a candidate secures equal to or more than the cut-off marks then he or she will qualify the exam.

The TNPSC Group 2 cut-off is influenced by the interplay of three factors

  • The difficulty level of the question paper
  • Number of vacancies
  • The number of applicants who appeared in the exam

As the difficulty level of the question paper rises, the cut-off tends to decrease.

The number of vacancies also influences the TNPSC Group 2 cut-off because to select a higher number of candidates, the commission needs to reduce the cutoff so that a higher number of candidates can be selected.

The third factor is insignificant because the number of candidates always remains higher than the number of vacancies.

Q:   What is the expected cutoff mark for TNPSC Group 2 examination this year?

A:

The Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission will conduct the TNPSC Group 2 prelims exam 2024 in August 2024. We can predict the TNPSC Group 2 cutoff only after seeing the TNPSC Group 2 uquestion paper. The TNPSC Group 2/2A cutoff depends on the following factors

  1. Difficulty level of the Question Paper
  2. Number of Vacancies
  3. Number of candidates appeared in the exam

The last factor can be overlooked but the first two are the deciding factors for the any exam cutoff.

 

Q:   How does the cutoff mark for TNPSC Group 2 vary for different categories?

A:

Q:   What is the difference between the cutoff mark and the qualifying mark for TNPSC Group 2 examination?

A:

Difficulty Level of the Paper: The complexity of the question paper directly impacts the cutoff mark. A more challenging paper tends to result in a lower cutoff mark

Number of Candidates: The total number of candidates appearing for the exam also affects the cutoff. When there are more candidates, the competition increases, potentially leading to a higher cutoff

These factors interact to determine the final cutoff mark for the TNPSC Group 2 examination. Candidates are advised to refer to previous years' cutoffs to gauge the competition and prepare accordingly
