  • Number of vacancies
  • The difficulty level of the exam

Let’s discuss these points one by one.

Number of candidates appeared for the exam:

The difficulty level of the exam

Generally when difficulty level of the exam is too high then cut-off is likely to be low and when difficulty level of the exam is too low then the cut-off is likely to be high.

One can’t predict the difficulty level of the exam. IBPS often give surprises but if we have a look at ongoing recruitment exams IBPS RRB. AS compared to the previous year, no major change is observed this year. So, it is expected that the difficulty level of the exam will be more or less remain the same, as compared to the previous year.
