  1. Cutoffs for UPSC CSAT-2012 Preliminary Exam
  2. Comparison of Cutoffs: 2011 vs 2012

Yep, the official cut-offs for CSAT-2012 (preliminary exam) are now available (without having to file RTI!) Because UPSC has revamped their result-PDF generating script. So now whenever you download your prelim mark sheet (2012), it’ll appends cut offs at the bottom of every PDF (Click me for screenshot).
Similarly, mains mark sheet also contains the marks of last candidate recommended for service. (click me for screenshot)

@To the new players:

  1. There is no separate cut off in preliminary exam. UPSC combines marks scored in both papers (GS+Aptitude) and from that combined score, candidates are selected for mains exam.
  2. Marks scored in preliminary exam are not counted in final merit list.

Cutoffs for UPSC CSAT-2012 Preliminary Exam

Category Preliminary Exam (CSAT2012) Final (Mains+interview)
General 209 936
OBC 190 911
SC 185 870
ST 181 864
PH-1 160 858
PH-2 164 942
PH-3 111 802

anyways, let’s compare this with cutoffs from 2011’s exam. (obtained via R.T.I)

Comparison of Cutoffs: 2011 vs 2012

Category Prelims(CSAT) out of 400 Final (Mains+interview)
2011 2012 2011 2012
General 198 209 1090 936
OBC 175 190 1059 911
SC 165 185 1023 870
ST 161 181 1009 864
PH-1 135 160 1008 858
PH-2 124 164 1047 942
PH-3 096 111 0911 802

As you can see, from 2011 to 2012, the cutoffs for prelims have increased while final scores have decreased.

  9. cutoff was 240+-5.Most people predicting low cutoffs are dumb here.They are ubderestimating the intelligence of youth in india preparing for CSE..Crowd from IIM/IIT/NIT/Engineers/SSC all are getting 170+ in p-2.Now the dumb humanities will always think that such scores are unachievable as they themselves cant score in their entire life.

  10. Hi Mrunal Sir,

    I found, cut off of PH2 category is higher than general category (936 for General & 942 for PH2 category). how does it possible? why candidate will use PH2 category? is there any different evaluation scheme for PH to General candidates?
    I found only 4 candidates are selected in PH2 while 20 in PH1 & 10 in PH3. is there any policy applied in selection process to select only 4 in PH2?
    Do you have any idea for about the ratio of final selection ratio to no. of appearance in PH2 candidate?

    Sorry for numerous questions but i really need to know these information.
    Thanks in Advance.
    Pls. reply

    1. hello friend,
      as per my observation…reservation for PH category is horizontal in nature, it mean that if ph category candidate gets a rank in general merit list (for eg. rank 1 or 2), then also seat will be allotted to him on basis of his ph category merit list, that is he will not be counted in general category. its not like a vertical reservation( which is available to OBC, SC,ST) in which if one gets a rank in general merit then seat will be allotted to him in an unreserved category that is he will be counted in a general category merit list. this is the reason that cut off of PH2 category is higher than general category.

      and only 4 candidates are selected in PH 4 because there are only 4 vacancy for them and these number of vacancy is decided by a process in which every dept. and states send their number of vacancy in a respective category that is PH 1,2,3.
