This R.T.I had been filed by Mr.Vinay Krisha and he has sent me a copy for the benefit of CAPF and CDS aspirants.

  1. Central Police Forces Exam (CPF) cutoffs in 2009, 2010
  2. Combined Defense Service Exam (CDS) 2011 Cutoffs

Central Police Forces Exam (CPF) cutoffs in 2009, 2010

UPSC has refused to provide cut off marks of CPF 2011 citing the (cliched) excuse that recruitment process is not yet complete. But 2009 and 2010’s marks have been provided.


Please note: In the year 2009 & 2010 paper I was for 250 marks & paper II was for 150 marks, Personality test for 200 marks. But From 2011 they have changed to paper I for 250 marks & paper II for 200 marks, Personality test for 150 marks.

Combined Defense Service Exam (CDS) Cutoffs 2011

There is no provision for reservation (categorywise) in CDS examination however, course-wise cut-off marks of written examination are as under


UPSC has (again) refused to provide cut off marks of CDS 2012 citing that recruitment process is not yet complete.
