The UPSC Engineering Services Examination (ESE), also known as Indian Engineering Services (IES) is an examination conducted to recruit engineers in various government departments. The job profile of IES is lucrative enough to attract any meritorious candidates. Now, most of the candidates appearing for the exam often worry about the marks that they need to score to get qualified to the next round. Of course, having an idea about the marks that you need to score would help you in chalking out a better plan for UPSC IES Preparation. In the following post, we would be talking about the UPSC IES Cutoff for previous years, to get an idea about the cut off for IES 2019.

IES 2018 Cutoff

The IES 2018 Cutoff is not available yet as the UPSC didn’t release them yet. We would upload the IES cut off 2018 as soon as the official cutoffs are released. The cutoff for a particular year depends on the following factors:

  • The total number of candidates appearing for the exam
  • The total number of vacancies
  • The difficulty of the paper
  • Previous year cutoff

Based on the data available for 2018 and comparing it with the data available for previous years, we expect that the IES 2018 Cutoff would be a bit higher than previous years. However, we would suggest that you wait for the official IES 2018 Cutoff.

We have also provided you with the cutoff for previous years so that you get an idea about UPSC ESE cut off 2018.

IES 2018 Cutoff for Mains

Like the prelims, the official IES 2018 Cutoff for mains is not available. We would update the IES 2018 Cutoff for mains in this article as we get from official sources.

The cutoff of UPSC ESE for mains exam is calculated based on the marks for both the prelims and mains exam. The cutoff is determined out of 1100 marks that is 500 for preliminary exam and 600 for mains exam respectively. As per previous years’ analysis, the minimum qualifying marks for General, OBC, SC, and ST candidates were 20% while for physically handicapped candidates were 10%. This means, candidates belonging to general category OBC, ST and SC candidates have to secure 120 marks and PH category candidate have to score 60. However, the candidates have to score the overall cut off released by the commission discipline wise for each of the categories. The qualifying cut off may vary this year and the overall cut off for different category is decided by the commission.

Calculation of Mains Cut off

  • Cutoff marks of mains exams = Preliminary marks (500) + Mains marks (600)
