IBPS RRB Cut Off for 2021:

The IBPS RRB cut off 2021 is fixed at various stages of the recruitment process. It is the minimum score required to progress to the further stages of the recruitment. The cut-off is fixed based on the total vacancy available. The other factors influencing the cut-off are exam difficulty level, number of applicants, etc.

 

Also, the exam may take place in various shifts. In each shift, the difficulty level of the question paper will be not in a uniform manner. So the calculation of scores will create an imbalance. To make the calculation of scores look uniform, IBPS will carry out a process called normalization. For the process of normalization, a formula is used as given below.

 

Candidate’s percentile rank = {(Total number of students in a slot) – (Rank of the candidate in that slot) / (Total number of students in a slot – 1)} * 100

 

Using this formula, the percentile rank is found for all the candidates. Now the normalized score of the candidates is taken into consideration for the result announcement. The candidates with normalized scores above the fixed cut-off are qualified in the exam.
