On a detailed analysis of the paper, you will find that there were 25 difficult level questions whereas the rest were easy to moderate. Further 15-20 questions could easily be handled by the elimination technique meaning could be handled by identifying one definitely wrong statement.

So by and large paper was designed in a way that the most appropriate range shall be 80-140 marks in which the majority of candidates would score. The candidates scoring above 140 are really prepared well and need to keep their nerves in control on D day. Whereas candidates scoring between the 100-140 approx need to work on consolidation of Knowledge. 

For those scoring below 70-100. Guys believe me you are still in the game. However, you need to work on your elimination technique thoroughly. 

Solving UPSC paper is an art of elimination. The more you master it the more marks you will score. The knowledge base of candidates scoring 70-90 marks is by and large the same as those scoring between 120-140 marks. However, the 40 marks of difference is because of elimination techniques or the art of solving the paper that has been inculcated by those scoring high. It gives them the straight advantage of 10-15 questions.

So guys please don't embark upon studying something new. Still, 15 days are there. Work on revision as much as you can (don't miss on easy questions. It will hurt the most.) while trying to inculcate the elimination techniques.

Ultimately the paper of UPSC is a whole together different ball game. Knowledge is a prerequisite but excelling it requires controlling your nerve, a strategy, and a command on elimination techniques. So all of you guys have enough knowledge with you since you are scoring 70 plus marks and are attempting at least 70 - 100 questions with dedication. I request you all to keep faith in years of your own preparation.  Don't lose your confidence now and obviously rectify ur mistakes. 

Still, 15 more days to go. Still 150 hours of preparation to go. And still, 9000 minutes to go. So use your time wisely and give it a dash like never before. Miss now and a bare minimum of 2 more years of suffering. So work hard and all d best to you all.

I felt so dumb today  that after so many months of UPSC preparation, I still didn't know what was privy council in actual 

I was also not aware of that but it happens with everyone. If you scored anything above 110, you shouldn't feel dumb at all.

Bhai yeh 110 ka score kahan se la rahe ho ?

@root Sir, even then general category cut off will be around rank 4500 in Upsc  . So if we were to extrapolate cut off on rank base seems to be around score 120 or rank 2000 ๐Ÿ™‡


I am considering almost all serious aspirants took this test. Atleast more than 90-95%.One thing we have to agree that forum is a big name in prep now. Since online free test + offline exam is closed so m assuming this.

I strongly feel odd 4000 ppl out of this list will clear ppr. 

Again, keep in mind that ppl scoring 80+ to 140 will be on same level in upsc standard ppr..... It is the D-Day and revision will differentiate.

I strongly feel cutoff can be considered around 95-100, even around 90 but it is just a number.

Thanks forum, can see marks now.

Saw my marks(112) and with the discussion about paper being very easy and people scoring above 140 has got me anxious. I know I need not stress on the upper limit but looks like  should have performed better and in the upsc paper this won't suffice. I myself did find exam moderate. Just weird marks pattern in mocks making me confused, vision FLTs, abhyas, and simulators. Major ups and down in marks, big range of marks. Would have to analyse with detailed solution.

More than that, you have to factor that in last 10 days some people make tremendous progress.

So performance will only increase from now onwards. Unless you give up.

@Sk123 when can we see again? 


@Freakhoto Now I believe when all the slots are over i.e after 6:30 pm. If they don't open that option before that. 

So till then let us all cringe in the anguish of seeing the marks. :D

Hello All, some people are able to see scores while others cannot. Rest assured your tests are saved. We are looking into the matter why this is happening, but any code change now may disturb test if those writing it.


You can expect your scorecard by 8-9pm today for whose who are not able to see it.
