The cut-off marks in an exam for the Scheduled Caste (SC) category is higher than that for the general category for the recruitment of teachers for Delhi government schools. Now, the SC candidates will have to score more than their general category counterparts in a government exam for school teachers post to make it through.  

However, the qualifying mark for the general category is 80.96 and for the SC category it is 85.45. The exam was held in September for 222 vacancies for science teachers in government schools by the Delhi Directorate of Education. 

The lowest cut-off for the Scheduled Tribes (ST) category is 69.31 marks and the cut-off for the OBC (Other Backward Class) category, which is usually a few marks below that for the general category, is 12 less than the SC cut-off. Total 31 posts out of 222 are reserved for the SC category. 

The cut-off marks for the reserved categories is usually set lower than that for general candidates; this is based on the reservation percentage, the number of candidates who took the exam and the available vacancy. 

A similar instance happened in Rajasthan where the state Public Service Commission had set the OBC cut-off at the highest level in the Rajasthan Civil Services exam or the RAS 2013 exam.
