Every year, the Union Public Services Commission (UPSC) conducts the Civil Services Examination (CSE) to shortlist candidates for various services including All India Services (AIS), namely Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Forest Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS).
Candidates have to stand out in the three stages of the selection process to take up the service. The selection of the candidates will start with the screening round, i.e., Civil Services Preliminary (CSP). After taking the Preliminary examination, most of the candidates will be very eager regarding the probable cut off marks. One who secures the UPSC Cut off score in the Preliminary is only eligible for the Main Examination which will be held in September.
The UPSC will be announcing the IAS cut off score only after a year. Aspirants are a bit confused about whether to start the preparation for Main Exam or not before the release of the Preliminary result. Hence, we bring you the expected UPSC cut off marks for General Studies (Paper-I), which is only considered for merit.

After taking the UPSC Civil Services Preliminary exam, candidates need to assess their expected score with the help of the question booklet. If candidates feel that they are expecting a good UPSC cut off marks and stand above the previous years' cut off, they should start preparing for the UPSC Main Examination.
The Commission will release the UPSC Prelims result after a month. Those who have qualified in the IAS Prelims need to submit an online Detailed Application Form-I (DAF-I) along with scanned documents for the UPSC Main Exam.

Aspirants should note that the IAS Prelims cut off is the minimum mark one should obtain to attain eligibility to appear for the Main exam.
