[Rumour] Cut off for UPSC Prelims 2013

edited July 2013 in Miscellaneous
As the title is saying that this a rumour collection thread for those of us who are anxious about the cut off, so please moderators , don't blacklist this. Those who not interested in this pls stay away.

As many of you know ETEN classes, has come up with speculated cut off as below:-

Latest News:

Civil Services Prelims 2013 : Cut-off 211/400, General Studies : 106+ , CSAT: 100 +

Even Orkut is abuzz with such news, but no news on ForumIAS?
Anyone has any idea about credentials of the above and if there is any possibility of sectional cut off going so high?

As far as I remember, there was this note in notification that sectional cut off may or maynot be there depending on the discretion of UPSC.

  • this speculation is absolutely absurd.
    General Studies 106 + is something which is tough to achieve.
    CSAT I have not come across any one who has said below 125 marks

    So i have no idea how this absurd speculation has been made.

    and I dont understand the logic why everybody starts discussing sectional cut-off when there has been no such thing in past two occasions and neither there has been any said change in pattern of pre or
    any notification of sectional cut off be UPSC
  • =))
    There is no news of sectional cutoff. Heard that someone called Mr. Farid's office and he confirmed that there is no sectional cutoff(don't know whether it is true). I could have believed the rumour of sectional cutoff but this- paper-1 (106) and paper-2 (100) no way.
  • Brothers, even I am not believing it can go so high like 106! that will be too much..but people on Orkut are treating it a as credible so there must be something tru about, like Patern change happened, even though everyone was hoping it wouldnt.
  • Could you post the orkut link?
  • Some "bond" guy has made a comeback on orkut and he says cut off is 220. As per people on orkut bond has always provided the right information.
  • Threads like this are best for entertainment, Its like reading Bigboss script live.

    thanks for this kind service. :)

    PS: no offence !

  • 106 in paper 1 and 100 in paper 2. Should we achieve both or atleast 1 would suffice?? :P
  • edited July 2013
    Do they (etenIAS) really think 106 in paper 1 is needed to clear the cut off or is it just a move to increase their website hits...because if they genuinely feel ki 106 tak chahiye GS me to clear cut off, they are too dumb to run a coaching class for IAS.
  • Only time (and UPSC) will tell...

    Last year, around 80 % who cleared prelims did not have score above 80 in the first paper. This time if UPSC sets 106 as the cutoff then who will write mains? Bangladeshi refugees?

    Orkut wale chirkut hai. :-p

  • Rumours need some logic to make others believe.

    106+ and 100+!!!! And the cutoff is 211.

    What if someone scored 106+100=206 >:/

  • How many aspirants visited ETENIAS' website and discussed about the institute, that was the reason for such rumours and they were successful. =))

    @sidlivestrong , youtube analysis was bit good . Person admits[finally one did :D ] its difficult to predict cut-offs . Nevertheless , here in this forum , its been said that Mr. Farid had confirmed the cut-offs near to 220 , and the youtube person's estimate for General Category max marks is 218 .
    To believe, or not to believe that is the question ^#(^

    'can cutoff cross 200? never it can cross 200. '

  • cutoff will not be higher than 210 :P

    if it is i will have to prepare for CSE 2014 :(

    Cutoff has to be lower than my estimated score by at least 10-15 marks. What I am expecting is irrelevant; the cutoff has to be lower than whatever I get.

    My source - Premonition / I'm psychic (NOT read psycho). Just as good as any other source!

    If you insist on a prediction (didn't want to be the bearer of bad news) :

    I predict a cutoff of 215 for GCs and the result would be out on a day which is a prime number but not less than 20 and this month itself.

    Don't be a false prophet!

    I have been told by a friend whose cousin sister's husband knows someone who is a peon in UPSC that the result will definitely be declared the day after a new moon when jupiter and mars are in an agreeable position in the night sky.
  • @Stardust1901 @ArindamSarkar

    both of you are correct.. i just did a probability, permutation and combination of your facts. i am getting the date same as my source told me. so, all 3 of us are correct..

    but i cant reveal my source or the information he gave.. :D
