Most important point is there is no sectional cut-off marks in the SSC Tier-I Exam.

Those candidates who cleared the overall cut-off marks in Tier-I Exam will only be eligible to give the Tier-II Exam. Marks of such screened candidates in Tier-I will be taken into account for final ranking of candidates for selecting them for the interview/skill test and also final selection.
