The difference that Sectional Cut-offs make

Sectional cut-offs are the talk of the town and the reason is that the official notification clearly states that candidates, to qualify for the Phase II exam have to secure a minimum of 40% cut-off marks in each of the sections. This condition is there in the SEBI Grade A exam for the first time. So in a nutshell, you need to score at least 16 marks in each of the 5 sections. So, ensure that you are ready to give your best in this exam. We have come up with the cut-offs of 2017 for your reference.
