The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) had announced the vacancy for several Multi Tasking Staff, earlier this year. Candidates, interested and eligible, were invited to apply for the post.
SSC will soon be announcing the results of the SSC MTS exam and candidates must keep a close check on the official website
The recruitment by SSC for Multi Tasking Staff was announced to be done by the two-tier examination system. The tier-I examination was held in the month of August (2nd – 22nd), 2019.
While the answer key for the tier-I exam has already been released, according to a recent announcement, the results for the tier-1 exam will be released on 25th October 2019. The results for SSC MTS 2019 will be published on the official website of the Staff Selection Commission ssc.nic.in
Thousands of candidates had appeared for the tier-I exam, which was a computer-based test. It comprised of questions from four subjects, that is, General English, General Intelligence and Reasoning, Numerical Aptitude, General Awareness.
Candidates will be awarded one mark for every right answer, and 0.25 marks will be deducted for every wrong answer.
There will be a different scoring system for the SSC MTS 2019 exam. Firstly, in order to calculate the marks, the following method will be employed –
Number of Correct Answers × 1 – Number of incorrect answers × 0.25
However, these marks will have a lot of parity and will require normalization. This is because there are differences in the scores due to variation in question papers and difficulty levels. Keeping these factors in mind, SSC has announced the process of normalization.
SSC has announced a normalization formula through a notice dated on 7th February 2019. Once the scores are normalized, the final marks will be rounded up to five decimal places.
The cut off marks will also be decided on the basis of these normalized marks itself. There will be different cut offs according to different factors. The SSC MTS 2019 cut off will be different for different categories, states, union territories and age groups.
The exam involved two separate age groups – 18 to 25 years and 18 to 27 years. After the release of the tier-I examination, candidates who qualify will be allowed to appear for the tier-II examination.
This exam is a descriptive exam which comprises of essay or letter or other such writing tests. Candidates who want to qualify for Paper 2 will have to score at least 40% marks for unreserved category and 35% for reserved category. Once a candidate qualifies in this exam, they will be eligible for the recruitment.
Result Date for Tier 1 Examination 25th October 2019.
