Cut Off 
TNPSC announces the TNPSC Group 4 cut-off along with the results. The TNPSC Group 4 cut-off is the lowest number of candidates necessary to be elected in the TNPSC Group 4 test. The cut-off marks for TNPSC Group 4 deviate from the qualifying marks specified in the notice.
Candidates that receive at least 90 points, which are equal to the qualifying standards, will be considered for the counselling stage. However, with 90 points, your prospects of landing a job are slim. As a result, applicants should get a high score, which varies from 120 to 160 depending on their reservation.
Regardless of reservations, a candidate for TNPSC VAO must score 160 or more to be selected as a VAO in the state of Tamil Nadu. TNPSC Junior Assistant cut off marks are also highly high due to fewer vacancies and more applicants; thus, at least 170 points are necessary to acquire a job.
