  • 100+/-2 (Chances on lower side)

    Reason: Lot of concentration between 90-100, not all are going to write as seats are less this time Only 5000(Gen) are going to write mains apart from that uncertainty of answers over few questions on which only UPSC will decide.

    Anyone getting above 95 should seriously start preparing for Mains.

    jahan par jyada hote hain uske upar hi jata h cutoff..95 -97 k as pas bhi kafi janta hai is bar..jo ki doubtful questions ko remove karke baithi h (not like inflated ones)...khair apna kaam to predict karna h upsc hi decide karegi kya rahega cutoff..bus deserving walon ka katna nahi chahiye..
  • 89 to 91

    haha.. iss photo m dikh rha h mene kitna samjhaya tha logo ko RTV is constitutional right
  • as per my information, no institute has predicted cut off in three digits whether its shankar, vision, neostencil, clearias, insight or any other. this is something extraordinary. it clearly points cut off can never enter three digits even in wildest of dreams.
  • Cut-off won't be more than 90. There could be more gypsum-like knuckleballs from UPSC this year. :trollface:

  • most serious candidates will end up with 85 - 94 marks. So cut off should be 95 - 99 marks.
    Cycle of prelims and Mains continues into the 8th and Final Year ---> 2018.

    Lmao..

    Ye hai UPSC ka jalwa.

    Kahaan woh din the 2015, 2016 ke jab cut off 107, 116 par hua karta tha.

    Aur kahan ye aaj ke din hain....शतरंज की पूरी बाज़ी पलट के रख दी UPSC ne.

    Khair.......

    98-99 tak hona chahiye CSP ka.. Maximum
  • Shankar wali range sahi lag rhi ...but UPSC keys kya answer rakhegi ye to next year hi pata lagega
    Make Life Beautiful Again!!
  • 94-96

  • My final cutoff prediction-
    General - 90-92
    Obc-88-90
    SC- 77-79
    ST-75-77
    Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise !!
  • Cutoff 95 se jyada nahi jayega....likh lo note kar lo.. B)

    All my IPS , IRS friends getting in the range of 85-100 . marks have surely dipped by 20 this time as compared to last year . you can also refer to clear ias marks to reach a tentative cutoff . Acc to it , cutoff hovers around 15 percentile marks , which is 87 in its poll . But i think 87 seems too less , it may change over next few days , so my final prediction is cutoff to remain in 90-92 range , not more than that . even shankar lower range is 93 , it may be true .
