IFOS and IAS 2018 cut off Discussion thread...

edited June 5 in Miscellaneous
Out of ex hall I was expecting 134+ worst case ...which is now down to 120.66.... According to keys...what was the IFOS prelims cut off last year ? And what could we expect this year. Seats are the same 110.
(Moderator note- this is a cutoff speculation thread, so plz don't open any other threads fr cutoff, they will b closed asap)

    Cutoff more or less is likely to be 120 - 123 . Last year it was 121 .

  • 115-118 k as pas (UPSC ka 102-105) UPSC and IFOS me usually 15-16 marks ka difference rehta h.
  • I think the Forest cutoff would be around 113-114.
  • Im also an ifos aspirant...getting 115 according to shankar...now planning for ssc-cgl if I dont clear pre

    This yr no scoring like 150+.. wo exceptions km ho gye h..

    I will not be surprised to see 117 kind cutoff for this yr IFOS.

    At NO cost more than 120. :)

  • Bhai basically I suffer from ADHD.... so I can't follow one source for long. I read a lot of different books and I have good intuition. Mujhe Kuch sixth sense lag jati hai ki yahan se question aega. I read from multiple sources and NEVER revise. Instead of revising I read same topic from some other book. Maybe that's why I score better in pre. Baki I study max 5 hrs a day on a good day...

    kind of in similar situation ....
  • my take civils cutoff+12/13 not 15[case in most years]. posts declined in civils and not forest services.so cutoff difference will reduce.
  • 136 from Shankar, but of course the real score will vary. What a mess.
    Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends than that good men should look on and do nothing.
  • Any chance at 111.33 (vajiram)? Filled only forest

    you qualified 3 ifs pre brother then you should know that in no way cutoff is going to be more than 117
    exactly how much it will dip is the question
    almost every veteran ifos aspirant score has drastically reduced

    I think the Forest cutoff would be around 113-114.

    you scored 130+ last year right?
    how much you are scoring this time
    i too think cutoff will be in this range
  • my guess is cutoff would be somewhere in between 113-117.
  • @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh - so good to see you here :) :) aisa lag raha hay koi purana dost mil gaya :) where is @drkingschultz?? and other saathi
    not active due to nonsensical users and their rants!
  • 114 pe kuch scene bnega kya ? yar wo president vote wala sahi ho jaye to 116.66 hoga, wo thoda safe lag rah...bhut silly mistakes ho gye...

    Yes, 137 in CSP 2017.
    This time: 125-130 (but haven't ticked Forest).

    To CsE pr Kya vichar h ? Cut off same rhegi?
    Your victory is right around the corner. Never give up.


    On the recommendation of forumite YNWA I did data mining on Quora and found 10066 people scoring 112.
    So cut off can shoot up ...
