RRB JE CBT2 Expected Cut off and Poll

There are 13,487 seats all over India which will be filled in this 2018-19 batch.

As we all know RRB has selected ‘X 15’ candidates of available vacancy from 1st round (CBT 1).

Its very difficult to predict the cutoff when there is Normalization statistics on final marks

However it is very clear that you must be top one among 15 candidates to clear the exam and get selected for next round i.e., D.V.(Document Verification).

For those who have been studying from long time are benefited, because RRB has not given sufficient time after announcing the results. Candidates who started late may have not covered such bulky syllabus(though basics). So hope the normalized marks will bounce higher.

The cutoff depends on:
1. Zone and zonal vacancy
2. Other shifts difficulty level
3. Your shift candidates performance
4. And of course your performance 😉

To get higher bounce after normalization:
1. Your marks should be high.
2. Your shift candidates marks should be low as much as possible.

3. Other shift’s difficulty level should be low than yours.

Trust me, this time almost all shifts had questions bit tricky. People who comment ‘attempted 110, 120, 130’ are just telling what they have marked. Because everybody will have that mindset to attempt at least 120 out of 150. Nobody knows what will be their Raw score after subtracting negative marks. Accuracy matters here, not luck.

After observing CBT 1 results, I can assure that 50 to 60% of candidates are Non tech Puntters (Legends). But their strength was limited to 50 marks. And unfortunately non tech was not that easy this time. So your true competition is among 40% to 30% who really worked hard on both non tech and technical subjects.

Based on comments and reviews of exam appeared candidates after going through several social media, we can expect marks as shown below to be at safer side.This marks approximately holds true for all branches and all shifts.

General: 100±5

OBC: 95±5

SC: 85±5

ST: 80±5

These are Raw marks (Before Normalization)

Addition marks after Normalization:

Easy to moderate: 5 to 8 marks

Moderate: 7 to 10 marks

Moderate to tough: 8 to 12 marks

Anyway exams are done now, it will take some time for board to come back with something (see below update). Until then forget that you have given exam, focus on next hunt. Else this may kill your precious time. I know you will search for videos, posts until you see some cutoff of your level. The comfort that you are trying to seek it temporary. Anything can happen, don’t loose hope or be too confident on this. Never decide anything whose base is built on expectation. Just say yourself, “I have done my job, now its not in my court”, and move on for next chase…
