Number of Vacancies

The second thing that affects the cut off is the number of the vacancies. If the number of the vacancies is low then it is definite that there will be a stiff competition and if the number of vacancies is more, then the cut off will be low.

Difficulty Level of the Exam

Another factor that affects the cut off of the exam is the difficulty level of the exam. Many times, the level of the question paper is low and at times it becomes difficult. If the question paper is easy then many candidates will be able to do it well and therefore the cut off will be high. If the question paper is difficult then only few candidates will be able to do it well and therefore the cut off will be low.
