Staff Selection Commission (SSC) will publish the result of Multi Tasking Staff (MTS) exam on October 25, 2019. The tier-1 exams were held from August 2 to 22, 2019, and that for remaining candidates of Srinagar was held on September 27, 2019. Answer keys are already available. On the basis of SSC MTS result 2019, candidates will be shortlisted for tier-2 descriptive exam.
The tier-1 exam was a computer based test on four subjects – general english, general intelligence and reasoning, numerical aptitude, general awareness. Each subject had 25 questions of 25 marks. As per the final answer key, candidates will get +1 for correct answer, though 0.25 marks will be deducted per wrong answer in lieu of negative marking. Result of SSC MTS 2019 will be published at ssc.nic.in.
Thus marks scored by each candidate will be number of correct answers * 1 – number of incorrect answers *0.25. However this will not be the actual score.
To eliminate differences in scores due to different question papers and their different difficulty level, SSC will implement normalization. The normalization formula provided in the notice number 1-1/2018-P&P-I dated 07-02-2019 will be the one used.
After implementing the normalization formula, marks will be calculated to 5 decimal places. Cut off marks will be as per normalized score only.
SSC MTS cut off 2019 will be separate for categories, states and UTs. in fact, as there are two age groups, 18 to 25 years and 18 to 27 years, there will be separate cut offs for each age group also.
The cut off will depend on number of vacancies (yet to be announced), total number of candidates appeared, number of candidates to be called for tier-2.
SSC has reported that 38.58 lakh candidates had applied for SSC MTS 2019. Only 49.73%, 19.18 lakh had appeared. The exam was held over 39 shifts at 337 exam centers in 146 cities in 34 states and union territories.

Paper 2 will only be qualifying in nature. Candidates need to get 40% if they belong to the unreserved category, or 35% if they belong to the reserved category.
Even though it will only be qualifying paper, if two or more candidates get same normalized marks in paper 1, then to break the tie, marks of paper 2 will be used. If the tie persists then first date of birth will be used, and then alphabetical order of names.
