IBPS RRB Exam Cut off Marks

Cut off marks are the minimum qualifying marks that are mandatory for every candidate to score to qualify the exam. It will be required from every candidate to obtain this minimum score to consider herself/ himself shortlisted for further rounds of the recruitment process.

Mere passing in individual tests may not be sufficient as candidates should also score sufficiently high on Total score in order of merit to be called for Common Interview / Provisional Allotment. 

Final Merit List Preparation-

  • For Office Assistant (Multipurpose)- Only the marks obtained in the main examination will be considered for final merit listing. 
  • For Officers Scale I- Marks obtained in the main exam will be considered to shortlist candidates for interview and final merit listing. 
  • For Officers Scale II and Scale III- Marks obtained in the single level examination will be considered for shortlisting for interview and final merit listing.
