UPPSC Cut Off Marks 2023

Only General Studies I is used to determine 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 UPPSC 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.
