    Definitely below 800....essays were difficult...i know of lots of people who wrote about renewable energies in essay on alternative technologies....paper 3 was difficult but paper 2 had many straight forward questions from laxmikant..so it compensates.....however the real reason for lower cutoff is optionals...optionals are progressively becoming tough year on year...
    That’s all you got? Cheap trick and a cheesy one-liner?

    Will b more than 806 definitely .. as lower number of seats and increasing competition day by day ..PPL are hell bent on writing answers so most of the sincere and serious students are able to finish the paper ..plus efficient and effective guidance available from multiple online sources ..plus now the coaching institutes and candidates are well versed with the pattern...
    And notably it has increased every year

    +1

    Atleast 20 marks increase in gs+essay cutoff due to this.

    If optionals marking remains same then cutoff ~825, without doubt.

  • I guess, it's not more than 777. Reasons were already provided by the intro post.

  • Cutoff will fall by 15-20 marks for sure despite being less Seats
  • Cutoff should be similar to last year. Cut throat competition though
    Googler!

    No. Cutoff will be declared. This time in hexadecimal. And results in binary. All those with 1 selected, and those with 0 not selected. Names and marks will be trellis encoded. :D

    Keep your face to the sunshine, you will never see the shadow.

  • I think the cut off will fall because the papers were off beat this time.

    1.GS 2 had direct questions but many people didn't write them properly because we don't expect such questions in mains. For instance lit of people didn't know the articles for CAG or Financial emergency.

    2. GS 3 was relatively difficult and people won't be getting marks in 130s like last year.

    3. GS 4 was general and people will be getting average marks.

    4. Essay topics we're not straightforward and people have interpreted them wrongly.

    5. Optionals were tough irrespective of the subject.

    6. People have developed a tendency to overuse graphs/points/charts and I feel this will backfire.

    A combination of the factors will pull down the cut off.
    Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    3rd attempt.
