Cut off mark is the minimum mark or percentage that a candidate requires to get to the next round of the Grade B Exam. After you have given the exam, Cut off will help you to guess your result. By it, you can estimate that whether you are qualified for the next round of the selection process for Grade B Phase-II or not. The cut-off marks are available separately for different posts like RBI Grade B Officer Cut off Marks for DR-General, or DR-DSIM, or DR-DEPR.
Hence, the final cutoff is decided by the RBI board based on the Phase II exam and Interview. And the section-wise and overall cut-off is released separately for different phases, like, Phase-I, Phase-II, and final selection. Candidates are required to secure both the section-wise and aggregate cut-off marks to get selected for different phases of the selection process.
