GK section was moderate to difficult, not from a content perspective, but from a question formation perspective. Questions were framed more on the lines of UPSC GK, and less on the lines of traditional GK which has come in TISSNET for the last 4-5 years. Hence, despite GK not being very difficult, some candidates found it very difficult.
Expected TISSNET Cut-off 2020:
TISSNET Cut-off is expected to fall this year due to some strange questions in the paper, which have never traditionally been part of the TISSNET Exam. We expect HRM and ODCL cut-off to fall by 3-4 marks as compared to last year, and for other courses it should fall by 2-3 marks.
