UPPSC PCS Cut-Off Marks

Only General Studies I is used to determining the UPPSC prelims cut-off scores. The General Studies II or CSAT exam is purely qualifying in nature and does not count towards merit ranking. To qualify for the main exams, applicants must pass the GS II paper with a minimum score of 33%.

The UPPSC Cut-off Marks represent the scores of the last applicant chosen depending on the availability of positions in a given category. Only after the final PCS Exam results for that particular year are announced does the UPPSC publish the cut-off marks for both the Preliminary and Main exams.

The PCS cut-off marks are determined by the UPPSC based on the following factors.

  • The number of vacancies for which the exam is being held.
  • The exam was taken by a total of applicants.
  • The exam’s level of difficulty.

The normalisation process ensures that the exam is uniform. Candidates must obtain UPPSC qualifying marks in order to qualify for the examination. Candidates who receive less than the prescribed minimum score will be disqualified. The minimum qualifying marks for UPPSC are as follows:

UPPSC Qualifying Marks
Category PCS Prelims Qualifying Marks PCS Mains Qualifying Marks
SC/ST 35% 35%
Other Categories 40% 40%

The commission specifies the criteria for resolving tie cases, and if there are any cases of a tie, i.e. when two or more candidates have received the same number of marks, the necessary action will be taken by the concerned authorities.
