This has also affected the chances of few people who could not attend questions even though knowing the answers, due to lack of time

The most of the time was consumed by Technical & Professional Knowledge Test for specialist discipline candidates. There is negative mark for wrong answers. So it would also play an important role in final scores further.

In descriptive section (English Language- Essay, Precise and Comprehension Writing), scores will also impact on overall marks.


GIC Assistant Manager Expected Cut Off

Due to moderate level of questions and based on performance of candidates in few sections like Reasoning and Numerical Ability (For Generalist) and Technical and Professional Knowledge Test (For Specialist), the overall cut off may rise because of limited vacancy.
