    ·
  • Scoring around 132 to 136. Should be enough for civil service mains, but nervous for IFoS mains.
    ·
  • Cutoff 97-102. General. IFOS 114-118
    ·
  • cutoff should be for cse 115-120
    ·
  • getting 127 according to shankar key. few friends got 135,124,141,137 etc.. scores seem to be high. Not sure about the cutoff though. hopefully it will stay low.

    I know some people will fake their scores as one of the guys from my centre told me 120 cutoff. Agar last year nahi gaya to is saal jana mushkil bro, i met many vajiram students after exam. They didnt find it easy and vaji mein 105 chal raha hai cutoff

    Last time "sane"people were giving such weird logic too.50%marks in gs is not a joke they said.some i have given interview 3 times,my friend is irs officer,yet most are hovering are around 105.cut off depends on how guys perform on a particular day.paper was not out of the blue.many had hedged on current affairs.almost everyone mugged up weird int bodies.be real.india hai yeh.competion jaan lewa hai

    I am getting 106.67 as per Shankar Key, although I am skeptical about the Atal Pension Yojana answer in there. So my max is 109. So, I think my UPSC campaign is over.

    Attempted 99 and got 83 correct from shankar ias keys and 82 correct from byju's keys so ~ 155 marks :)

    Wow, amazing numbers. I don't know how you guys prepare. Seriously.
    What I cannot do:
    Spell "Antecedent".

    What I can do:
    Crack CSE.

    Bhai, i have no idea about cutoffs. I will refrain from making predictions. I just said the scores of my friends. They are serious aspirants and most of them are senior players. The scores are according to shankar key. I trust them the most. Moreover this year conceptual questions are less so variation in key would be very less.
