SSC JE Cut Off marks is the minimum score that a candidate needs to obtain in order to qualify the exam. Candidates scoring the defined cut off in Paper I would be qualified for Paper II. Candidates who clear both the Papers would be shortlisted for SSC JE. The final selection of the candidates for SSC JE is on their merit ranking.

SSC JE is a national level entrance exam which is conducted by Staff Selection Commission for recruitment of Junior Engineers to group ‘B’ Non-Gazetted posts. It is a 2 stage examination - Paper I (Objective) and Paper II (Subjective). There are separate cut off lists for Paper 1 and Paper 2. Cut off varies as per the engineering branch and category.


SSC JE 2016 Cut Off

The cut off is the minimum qualifying criteria to shortlist the applicants for the next level. SSC JE cut off varies for each year and for every paper (Civil Engineering, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering) depending upon the factors such as the level of questions asked in the examination, number of applying candidates, number of posts and the reservation scheme. SSC releases 2 cut offs- One is for Paper I and the other is for Paper II.

Based on the SSC JE cutoffs of the previous year, one can estimate the range of minimum marks that the candidates must secure in order to qualify for second round i.e. SSC JE Paper II. In the following table, SSC JE 2016 Cut Off for Paper I is represented

Tie Break in SSC JE

There may be a case, when two or more candidates score same marks and it arises ambiguity in placing the names in SSC JE Merit List. Tie is resolved by applying the following tie-breaker methods

  • Total marks in SSC JE Paper-II would be considered, if still the tie remains then,
  • Total marks in SSC JE Paper-I would be taken into consideration, if the tie still doesn’t break then,
  • Date of Birth of older candidate is placed on high rank, if still the tie remains then,
  • Alphabetical order in the first name of the candidate is preferred.

SSC JE Result

SSC JE Paper I result is expected to be released in the month of January. SSC JE Result for Civil and Mechanical/Electrical Engineering is published separately by SSC. Based on the total marks obtained in Paper I and Paper II, the SSC JE final merit list of the candidates is prepared. Candidates would be provided appointments based on their aggregate marks and preference of posts.
