With CBSE Junior Assistant exam completed on January 29th & 30th, lets have a look at the cut off expected to be for 2020 recruitment and for previous years as well.

  • CBSE may prepare the final merit list on the basis of cut-off marks.
  • Skill Test is only qualifying in nature and performance in the same is not considered for the final merit.
  • However, the final merit list will include the top performers and in that case, merely obtaining qualifying marks would not matter.
  • Since there is no negative marking in the paper, cut off in the final merit list is expected to be high.
  • The cut off marks will be released by CBSE only when the recruitment process is completed.

CBSE Junior Assistant Cut Off & Selection Process

The selection process for the CBSE Junior Assistant consists of three stages:

  1. Computer Based Test
  2. Skill test/ Interview
  3. Document Verification (only for merit list holders)

Qualifying Cut Off marks:

Candidates have to obtain minimum cut off marks set by CBSE in the Junior assistant paper to qualify for the next round i.e., skill test/interviews.

The Junior assistant paper was of total 200 marks, and 100 questions were asked.

  • For Unreserved (General) category & EWS- 50% (100 marks)
  • For OBC category- 45% (90 marks)
  • For SC/ST/PWBD- 40% (80 marks)

Expected Cut off marks 2020:

The CBE Junior assistant cut off marks depends on three factors, namely- number of exam takers, difficulty level of the examination and vacancies.

Here is the expected cut off marks for 2020 (JA only) based on experts’ opinion and analysis of the exam.

  • General/unreserved category- 150-155 (out of total 200 marks)
  • SC- 130-140 (out of total 200 marks)
  • ST- 120-130 (out of total 200 marks)
  • OBC- 145-150 (out of total 200 marks)

Previous JA recruitment exam cut off

The last CBSE had conducted recruitment of Junior assistants was in 2014 for 36 posts. Even then, the recruitment process was done on the basis of qualifying marks and no cut off was released publicly.

Why the cut off could be higher in 2020?

The cut off in 2020 CBSE recruitment for Junior assistants is expected to be higher due to these factors:

  • High number of candidates & low number of vacancies– CBSE has not reported the official data on number of JA exam takers but the number is certainly huge and there are only 204 vacancies to be filled.
  • No negative marking– It will result in high average marks for each individual candidate, therefore, directly impacting the cut off to be high.

Shortlist & Selection Criteria

Candidates will be shortlisted to appear for the second and final stage of recruitment process i.e.., skill test/ interview on the basis of marks obtained in the online test held on Jan 29th & 30th, 2020.

The official notification puts it this way, “Based on the marks scored in Stage-I, candidates appearing for the post- Junior Assistant will be shortlisted, category wise, to appear in the final stage for skill test/ interview for the post(s) as the case may be.

Skill Test is mandatory for the post of Junior assistant. Here is skill test description- “A Typing speed of 35 words per minute OR equivalent speed of 10500 KDPH in English OR 30 words per minute OR equivalent speed of 9000 KDPH in Hindi on Computer.”

The candidates for the skill test will be called in the ratio of 1:10. Means, nearly 2,040 candidates will be called for the Junior assistant skill test.

Skill Test is only qualifying in nature.

The final merit list for Junior assistant recruitment will be made on the basis of candidates’ marks in the Computer Based Test. But it is compulsory for a candidate to qualify Skill test in order to be considered for the final merit list/selection.

Big changes in NEET 2020. Thats exactly what most of the experts and students likewise expected. They all stand correct. There are changes, but most of them are only good ones which NTA came up as it looks forward to simplify the admission process to MBBS courses in medical institutions across the country. 

Here we have prepared an extensive list of what changes have come to NEET 2020 and in what aspect. 

What Have Changed in NEET 2020

1- The biggest change: AIIMS and JIPMER entrance exams abolished. 

As you must be aware of the above said news, and since NTA NEET 2020 official notification is out, its now confirmed that JIPMER and AIIMS entrance tests have been abolished and the admission to those institutions will now be done through NEET only. 

Prior to this year, AIIMS and JIPMER used to conduct their own entrance exams for admissions to their affiliate colleges. But not in 2020. The HRD ministry and the National Testing Agency (NTA) had made it clear that students will now have to appear for NEET to take admission to AIIMS an JIPMER institutions too. NEET rank and scores would be the measure for their admission processes. 

2. Application Fees slightly increased: 

In 2019, the fees for NEET application was Rs 1400/- for General/OBC and Rs 750/- for SC/ST/PH/Transgender candidates. 

But for NEET 2020, the application fees has changed. The fees for General candidates is Rs 1500/-, Rs 1400/- for General-EWS/OBC-NCL, and Rs 800 for SC/ST/PwD/Transgender students. 

3. Changes in NEET 2020 Application form process

NTA has made documents and photo uploading requirements in NEET 2020 to avoid forgery which was seen last year. 

For NTA NEET 2020, the requirement is that student’s photo should be of post card and passport size, should contain 80% face. The photo should be in white background with name and date. 

The signature uploading requirement are now that the signature should be with running hand and continuous, on white paper and with no capital letters.

Priority is given to left hand thumb impression which should be clearly visible. However, of thats unavailable, you can upload right hand thumb impression too. 

NEET 2020: What did not change

Exam pattern did not change: There were a lot of anxiousness among students and facilities alike that NTA might introduce some changes to NEET 2020. The abolishment of AIIMS entrance test made experts anticipate the introduction of reasoning, logical intelligence and General awareness sections in the NEET exam pattern. However NTA did not made any change in NEET 2020 exam pattern. 

  • The exam duration will be 3 hours. 
  • Exam date is May 3rd, 2020.
