Expected Cutoff IFoS (Forest) Prelims 2017

Kitni lag rahi hai bhailog ??

2015: 121 (normal paper, assuming base level competition)
2016: 133 (easy paper, & also competition increased slightly)

This yr (seats same):
* difficult level increased ==> downward pressure on cutoff, ... but ...
* competition has increased drastically (some of those u dont usually select/prepare for IFoS, have selected it this year, due to Forest Mains 1month after CSM ...) ==> upward pressure on cutoff

Marks waale thread pe 140s , 150s dekh k phat chuki hai

    Kam hi jaayega Cut Off toh ....

    Jitna humko lag raha hai , usse toh kam hi jaayega .....

    Vacancies utni hi rehti hain har saal IFOs mein ( 110 ) , isliye Vacancies kam ya zyada ke kaaran Cut off mein hone waale variation , yahaan IFOS mein laagu nahi hona chahiye ......

    Aur Paper toh is saal ka Difficult tha hi , undoubtedly ....Better Prepared candidates waali baat bhi yahaan isliye thik lagti kyonki ( agar 5-10 logon ko Chhod diya jaaye ) toh , bahut hi kam log hain aur honge , jo ki 130 ka aankdaa cross kar paaye ho .....

    My Take : 115 tak
    Death is nothing , but to live defeated and inglorious , is to Die daily .

  • Aur Dusri ek baat aur , ,,

    Aisa koi Hard and Fast Constitonal Law Nahi hai ki , chaahe jo ho jaaye , par IFOS Prelims cut off humesha CSE Prelims Cut Off se zyada hi rahega ..

    Har saal Zyada hi jaata hai IFOS Prelims Cut off , isliye ye " 115 " waala figure bahut kam lag raha hai ? yaa koi aur vajah hai ?

    Previous years se koi correlation ni hai bhai ...I agree bhai.
    But 115 is really not a big deal ... {paper was tough, but not so much} ... & even if it is big deal, Forest Pre me sirf 600-700 (General) candidates hi to hote hain select .
    And yes, previous years can give us an idea abt the level of competition ... difference in cutoff of CSE & IFoS ...was 14 (2015), 17 (2016)

    Anyways I sincerely wish that I am completely wrong.
    Thanks for ur views bro.

  • Bhai I along with most of my batchmates are getting 110-120s this time as compared to 140s last year. So I feel 120-125 should be the cutoff for IFS.

    bhai par kya itna difference rahega...log 130+ bol rahe h... i hv been writing civils for last 3 year always got 130+.. personally feel ki ifos ka cutoff 123-125 n civils ka 106-109 jana chahiye.. par bhi fatt rehi h... so much of dilemma

    @raj728 ... bhai mere bi approx aise hi hain (131.33) ...
    Aur phati to meri bi hui hai :/
    Ek galat decision pe maine CSE bhi nahi tick kiya iss baar , only IFoS.

    Forum pe kai log ~125 cutoff bol rahe hain , but I fear ki they are underestimating the junta.
    Khair jitna kam kam jaaye utna hi acha ...

    @analyser ...
    [imo] bhai definitely it will reduce ...no doubt abt it.
    But m also sure that it will be >105.
    Is baar chahe tough aaya ho, but still some candidates are scoring 168, 158, etc (168 to shayad last year bi kisi ka nahi tha).

    And usually 2 kinds of candidates post their marks on Forum ...
    1. Those who are regular here (on Forum)
    2. Those who are scoring low or near expected cutoff (slightly above or below) ...aur unki phati hui hai , to yahan cutoff k baare me better idea lene k liye aate hain {largely I also belong to this category}

    Non-forum log, jo high score kar rahe honge , wo apna score ni daalte ...
