IAS EXAM held on 26th MAY 2013 -PRELIMS 2013-CUT OFF ANALYSIS-Poor turnout for IAS exam


  • Poor turnout for exam as compared to total number of applications received. As per leading News paper (The hindu & times of India) most of the states recorded more that 60% absentees in PRELIMS exam held on 26th MAY. Only 40% attended the exam.
  • Reason for this

latest structural changes in the MAINS exam specially General studies (GAME CHANGER).

  • Most of the senior most IAS aspirants with GM/OBC candidates left with less/one attempt so didn’t attended exam(except little those who cross age limit this year).
  • Since the inclusion of comman exam for IAS & IFS(Indian forest service),out of 40% there are serious players of only 1)IAS  2) IFS 3) BOTH (Very rare because of availability of optional subjects ).
  • Most of the attendees are freshers/first attempter/not serious aspirants.
  • IFS aspirants are very good at aptitude because(their education background is science &  must passed compulsory mathematics as a subject in degree level), so for them PAPER 2 went easy.(here IAS aspirants gets benefited only if  IFS aspirants opted only IFS(not BOTH IFS+IAS) at the time of filling application. Vice versa for IFS aspirants.
  • Looking at above probability only IAS, Only IFS,& both aspirants  have more opportunity if USPC create separate list for IAS , IFS.
  • Overall due to absenteesm and above claims, this years cut off ill be fall as compared to previous years so everyone who score more than 181+ to 210+ have great chance of clearing PRELIMS
