UPSC Combined Geologist and Geoscientist Examination Cut-Off

Union Public Service Commission releases the cut-off marks, particularly after the UPSC Geologist and Geoscientist exams. The cut-off is basically the minimum marks required by individuals to pass the test and get selected for the next round. These are again based on different categories, like any other competitive exams, as per the reservation system of the Government of India.

The cut-offs for the preliminary written exams are published separately. And those for the personal interview rounds are declared after the second round and are the final cut-off for a further selection of the candidates. Here are the cut-offs for the UPSC Combined Geologist and Geoscientist Examination from the last year.

Factors Responsible For Affecting The Cut-Off Marks

The cut-offs for the UPSC Combined Geologist and Geoscientist examinations vary from time to time. The major factors for creating such variations are mentioned below:

  • Number of appearing students:

The more the number of candidates applying for the same post will increase the level of competition. This will gradually make an increase in the cut-off marks, too.

  • Last year's cut-offs:

A little depends on the last year's cut-off marks since the Commission refers to it before deciding a fair cut-off for the current year.

  • Availability of Vacancies:

More vacancies result in a lesser competitive cut-off. However, if the availability of the seats is very limited compared to the number of appearing candidates, the cut-off again experiences a hike.

  • The Difficulty of Exam Paper:

The difficulty of the question is a major factor in deciding the cut-off. If the maximum number of questions is considered being difficult, the cut-off marks will experience a severe drop.
