Finally, UPSC has declared the result for CSAT-prelim-2013 (for both IAS and IFS). Earlier The result system was= you enter your roll number and the UPSC website would tell you whether you’ve passed or not. But this time, UPSC adopted the desi method (uploaded PDF file that contains big list of roll numbers)

I’m uploading the same PDF files on google docs (because UPSC server will become slow as hell for a few days). click on the following links:

  1. Result: IAS/IPS/Civil Service candidates: click me to see result (~15000 selected)
  2. Result: IFS candidates: click me to see result (~1000 selected)
  3. Forgot roll number?Click me but you’ll need registration id

@Those who didn’t qualify

Try again next year with full strength, rectifying whatever shortcomings you had in your preparation. And if this was your last attempt, then my best wishes for all your future endeavors.

Back in 2010, a lady from Chennai committed suicide for failing in prelims, Even in CSE-2012 a guy from Banglore committed suicide. Please remember that setbacks and success will come but life is more precious than one exam, government job, girlfriend, boyfriend or (temporary) nagging of parents/relatives.

I take the liberty of copy pasting a few paragraphs from Mr.Tirumala’s blogspot:

//Start of copypaste//

When I started (UPSC preparation), I always dreamt about what I would do once I am a civil servant. I failed the first time. That’s when things changed. Thereafter, I was more concerned about how to clear this exam than about what I would do once I become a civil servant. The question as to ‘why’ I wanted to be a civil servant was relegated to some back corner of my mind. It was the exam and it was me. Years rolled by. Until this happened. I was too old for this exam and out of attempts.

(So) I am back in industry. My career is progressing well. Biwi and baby are fine. Life has changed. Priorities have changed. And I am moving on.

The job, the workload, project deadlines, cafeteria, cubicle, bitching about the HR policies and the wait for the next weekend. It’s all there. However, there’s one difference. I had the courage to risk it all. I once did. I lost the bet. And I know that I have the courage to build my dreams once more. Brick by brick, I will build. I believe this is my takeaway from this exam, where I didn’t, ‘qualify’…….I spent a lot of time wondering why I didn’t make it to civil services. I thought I will carry the burden of this failure all my life and will never get over this….That’s not so. I moved on, (and) quite well to my own surprise, I must say. In retrospect it looks so stupid of me to even think that I failed. I now look back with a smile…It must have been fun while it lasted. I now work in the field of aerospace with one of the biggest aeroplane makers in world, and I am proud to be an engineer.

  4. लहरों से डर कर नौका पार नहीं होती
    कोशिश करने वालों की हार नहीं होती

    नन्हीं चींटी जब दाना लेकर चलती है
    चढ़ती दीवारों पर, सौ बार फिसलती है
    मन का विश्वास रगों में साहस भरता है
    चढ़कर गिरना, गिरकर चढ़ना न अखरता है
    आख़िर उसकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं होती
    कोशिश करने वालों की हार नहीं होती

    डुबकियां सिंधु में गोताखोर लगाता है
    जा जा कर खाली हाथ लौटकर आता है
    मिलते नहीं सहज ही मोती गहरे पानी में
    बढ़ता दुगना उत्साह इसी हैरानी में
    मुट्ठी उसकी खाली हर बार नहीं होती
    कोशिश करने वालों की हार नहीं होती

    असफलता एक चुनौती है, स्वीकार करो
    क्या कमी रह गई, देखो और सुधार करो
    जब तक न सफल हो, नींद चैन को त्यागो तुम
    संघर्ष का मैदान छोड़ मत भागो तुम
    कुछ किये बिना ही जय जय कार नहीं होती
    कोशिश करने वालों की हार नहीं होती

      1. nyc one inspiring..

    1. kya baat hai dost!

    2. This was something everyone needed at this point,whether they have qualified or not.. THANKYOU SO MUCH:)

    3. Dil Jeet liya Bhai :)

    1. The link doesn’t work.

      Call up Mr. Imran Farid, who is the undersecretary (Exams) at UPSC. Provide him with your Registration ID and Date of Birth, he will give you the roll number. I talked to him yesterday, he noted down my details and when I called him today provided me with my roll number.

      P.S. No more suspense. I cleared the prelims. Studying hard for Mains.

  5. Thanks Mrunal. I did my MBA from a reputed college but got was never satisfied. Always wanted to go for Civil Services and when things went right went for it leaving my job (many people gave me faces as it was one of the best jobs after MBA) and went for first and last chance in UPSC (I will turn 30 next year). Had no idea how to prepare when I started but your website gave me the confidence to go for it and leave my job. I know it is just 10% job done, keep with you good work and guiding us. Thanks a lot to you
    I got around 259 as a most sure shot score based on many keys. Only regret I could not clear IFoS (Wanted to go there more than IFS as wildlife is my passion) but still I will give best of IAS. Thanks a lot
    Jashan

  6. i was getting 229 according to Vajiram. got through. thanks mrunal for the economics funda.

    1. General Category?

  7. obc 240 above not qualified . . . .

  8. those who got min 90 or 100 in paper 1 only cleared . . . . upsc should have told it before . . . very sad . . . i committed over 33to35 wrongs out of 87 questions attempted in first paper the only thing in my mind while writing was i should get minimum 50 in paper 1 as i am sure about paper 2 . . . UPSC is really Un Predictable Service Commission. . . . may be next time!!!!!! score 240 + , 80+, 160+ . . . category obc

    1. Wrong !!!! I had only 80 in paper 1 –Gen category.I have qualified.talks of sectional cut-offs are wrong in my surmise.

    2. SC.. 100 in both papers …not clear

  9. Thanx Mrunal….i got through this time….thanx a lot to u for ur guidance.
    Looks like IFS cut off was higher than IAS.

    1. Ya,it was around 280 (around 40 marks higher)

  10. i expected around 140 in paper 1(conservative calculation..and its not a exaggeration) and was so eager to crack mains(much comfortably than prelims)but this csat..ruined everything..i never got more than 100 in my practice papers in csat..and supposedly 26th may was even bad day for paper 2.. i m totally devastated(which i know is ephemeral)..but it does take a toll on ur emotional citadel….nostalgia which keeps piling up as months passes..drags u down and cripple ur faith and confidence … self belief starts interrogating itself..with biased obnoxious feeling…i know csat is a progressive step..but sadly there would be sufficient amount of people with just the knack of solving aptitude ,must have made their way…and will eventually end up bringing as low as 5 or 6 in mains…i could have been a that place…anyway things will be taken care of.. it will be scrutinised .. and hopefully i dont get to write similar stanza next year..

    1. Hi Victim Bhai,

      I also couldnt qualify was getting around 220 OBC. But i am geared up for next prelims. Your GS1 marks are really impressive hope you can give me some tips regarding that as my paper1 is weak.

    2. Paper1 140 is really good, got screwed in paper-1.

  11. those who lose this time dont wory tis not the end of life.may be some thing more worthy s waiting for u.for that nly u lose and if u hav a chance fight backk anyway god has te perfect plan for u

  12. Hello everyone! seriously confused about cutoff. will someone please explain me in plain words two things-
    1. what is the cut off for general candidate category
    2. is there any provision for sectional cutoff from this year

    please guide me, I am going for my first attempt next year. want to be clear.

    1. Nobody knows the actual cutoff. Cutoff will be released by UPSC after the examination process is over. Until then its all speculation.

    2. Cut-off is being speculated as around 240 for general category
      It’s almost certain that there is no sectional cut-off this year as well otherwise overall cut-off would have lesser

  13. Did anybody notice… Due to Mrunals challenge they have specifically mentioned that they would not declare the Cut offs and actual marks scored by the candidates and also that no RTI would be entertained… Great work Mrunal… Kudos!!! Seems cracking IFS was tougher than IAS…:)

  14. was expecting 290, cleared IAS PRE, but not qualified for IFS….strange

    1. yup!! me too surprised buddy standards of IFS are substantially raised…………..
      for last 1 month i was reading forestry n to all d surprise in d world had my name in cs list bt not in IFS . my expected score was around 247 n wn 290 cudn’t suffice wot could hav been d cut off ??

  15. I was struggling a lot in my life, was suffering like hell in one iit, wanted to end my studies there but only because of my father’s wish i continued there. i took a private degree and attempted for prelims,even my dad agreed if i clear i could discontinue bloody iit thing, i put my heart out and studied . this was my only hope, even i didnt go to iit back this semester,though class started last monday on the hope that i wil clear prelims and haa result came and my roll number is not there…. dont know what to do now. My life s now like a person in the middle of a road who dont know where to go…n congrats to all yo cleared best wishes for mains

    1. Dude!! Wat u will do if fail in mains. Be clear about wat u want in life. Dont hop for luck. Think and bet high on ur dreams than all these psssing clouds

    2. how much score u expected dear??

  16. My score was (expected)130+75=205. SC candicate did not qualify. I Feel like dying ,I might probarly

    1. Buddy don’t lose hope. There are so many better things in life to do. Please concentrate on the positives and come out as a strong person

    2. even my score is 80+ 130=210 Sc category didnt qualify

  17. Thank you so much mrunal sir…!

  18. Sir!!! I got through……
    And U have indeed played a great role in this success of mine….. I thank you from the bottom of my heart……

    Regards

  19. My roll no is 252829. Kindly tell me if i got through or not.

    1. sorry brother…your name is not in the list

  20. All those who ve cleared are very lucky coz first tym pattern change and course released in March end

  21. I (OBC candidate) worked in a maharatna PSU. Left job to prepare for CSAT 2013. Prepared for 2 months and was expecting 220 ( 65 in paper 1 and 155 in paper 2). The marks in paper 1 may vary according to different keys. However I was damn sure of scoring above 150 in paper 2. Still not qualified. Had also appeared for ESE-2012. The cutoffs rose much higher than 2010 or 2011 level even there. Didn’t qualify there too. Not appeared in ESE-2013.

    Now I am left in a lurch. But will try again in both the exams. However i thought 220 was a respectable score to get through. Each year people are working harder and raising the cut offs higher.

    1. same story rahul ..exactly same story..

  22. what went wrong? unable to find ,expecting around 240.probably sectional cut off ?

  23. Mine score was around 240 ( 94+146) (general cateogory) after checking keys from vajiram, cl, mrunal and 2 othr keys, but could not made thru it, last attempt. But I thank God that I dont have to read hindu anymore, read nd not argue thngs written by marxists, dont have to over praise gandhi n nehru type leaders. now I can read Bal Ganga Dhar Tilak, Veer Savarkar, Bhagat Singh and see all modi inspiring speeches. My life can move on which was at halt since last 5 years :) Last but not the least my heart will stop going on heart attack on result day.I can explore new avenues which I was ignoring because of UPSC, I am thankful to God that it saved my 1 year by not going further instead of not in the list finally. When I am clear for my ultimate goal, these failures dont matter for me, I know there are other routes also to reach there. So other people also who finished their attempts like me, dont loose hope, life has so many other oppurtunities waiting for us and

    now for sometime we can take a break who were working continously and consistently dedicated for this exam. All the best to all of you and Thanks Mrunal :)

    1. hey nishi..thnx fr d encouraging words..i was totally heartbroken seeing my result..was just gathering guts to go ahead wt my dentist career..ur words meant a lot of suppoet fr me..thnx fr installing d positive spirit..:-)

      1. :) just work hard and never say die. always see y u want to do particular thing, u have to dug further to know what exactly we want, most of us dont know dat what we want. If we realize then we realise that we can achieve that thing by n no. of ways, others paths could be difficult but get ready for that. Lif is all about learning , enjoy that :)

        Thanks & All the Best

        1. yup..ur right coz i was dng it fr my dad..bt i shal write it again,prepare much betr n gv my best..thanks ya…… :-))

        2. i hv strived hard enough fr thz..may b i was lagging smthng..i shal improve on that…all the best fr ur future.. :-)

    2. That’s the spirit! All the very best!

    3. You are really a very spirited person..THANKS for sharing your views..I wish you stay happy in your life ALWAYS:)

      1. Thanks to all of you :)

    4. HOPE YOU WILL DO BETTER FOR THE NATION, by doing another mode of services
      All the best for ur great future.

    5. Thanks for these motivationg words ……….:) It will really strenghten me

    6. I agree, but it still is very disheartening !!
      All these years I put into it seems like such a waste.
      Will never be able to console myself…never :(

      1. I also finished my 4th and last attempt after leaving my job for last 3 years as I wanted to fully dedicate myself to this but as fate would have it, could not make it. The disappointment is not something i can describe in words but Life goes on.. There are newer avenues to explore. The feeling is somewhat same as what Nishi wrote. I would like to meet all such people who are still positive after this huge ordeal and will bounce back in life. Their positivity and mine can bring out the best in each one of us. So, Romaira Singh and all others , just stay positive and good luck in life!

        1. after havin remained out of the work force for 3 yrs….how difficult will it be for you to find a new job?? wht was ur work ex prior leavin the job?

          1. Well.. it will be quite difficult.. but i have worked for 2 years in Banking as a Branch manager in two good private banks. Hopefully can start from where I left, so will bank on that. Waiting for the state Civil Mains Result. I am sure I will bounce back in life but only regret is not being able to serve my country by being an IAS, although there are always other ways of contributing to the society too but IAS is something i really wanted to achieve!

        2. @Harpreet : I guess staying positive is the hardest thing right now.
          you begin to question everything.
          I’ve finished my PhD. I do have a career to look forward to…but nothing can compare to this.
          There will always be a void…..no matter what I do…where I go…whatever I achieve in life.

          1. Romaira don’t feel sad, its matter of time. Just accept it and Move on dear :)

          2. @Romaira : Bro, I will not be philosophical and say some things to cheer u up. This will hurt everytime we will look back and say what could have been(me included). But i can relate to this as i am going through the same thing. Having said that, just dont doubt yourself, which is the most important thing. Life has so much more to give, just be positive and let it come. I will be trying to put these things in practice too. Although it is easier said than done, but still just move on and keep going. Hopefully, with time these wounds will heal. On a funny note, I was hoping to get an intelligent life partner in IAS training batch, but I will have to look elsewhere. So, just be Happy. It’s a choice!

    7. Superb Spirit and really this is how one shud go forward..

    8. Hi nishi thanx yar…when i was reading ur blog it seems to me all the words were mine…its heart touching really…i have given 2 times intrvw but sth happen mistake during filling the omr sheet …and now u meet me…ur attitude very positive and optimistic …so i w like to keep in tuch..if u r plz…its for all the friends then we w meet on fb..or anyother…plz .and thanx nishi thanx a lot…i didnt slept past night ..but now i m going …thanx…good luck ham kuch bada aur behtar karenge…

      1. @kosal. Thanks Buddy! and good luck to you for future too.!

    12. theek kaha every thing has a bright aspect

    13. same here.expecting 240 plus minimum in spite of many silly mistakes,last attempt,upsc became life.now I will start practicing law.life goes on.but was preparing whole heatedly.now slowly and steadily coming to the terms.

  24. My roll no ir 252829. Pls anybody tell me that if i am in or not. Thanks

  25. they said there will be individual cut off for each of the papers. that may be the reason why people who got even 240 in total couldnt make it. they shud hav scored more in a paper 2 n little less in paper 1.

  26. Mine score was around 240 ( 94+146) (general cateogory) after checking keys from vajiram, cl, mrunal and 2 othr keys, but could not made thru it, last attempt. But I thank God that I dont have to read hindu anymore, read nd not argue thngs written by marxists, dont have to over praise gandhi n nehru type leaders. now I can read Bal Ganga Dhar Tilak, Veer Savarkar, Bhagat Singh and see all modi inspiring speeches. My life can move on which was at halt since last 5 years :) Last but not the least my heart will stop going on heart attack on result day.I can explore new avenues which I was ignoring because of UPSC, I am thankful to God that it saved my 1 year by not going further instead of not in the list finally. When I am clear for my ultimate goal, these failures dont matter for me, I know there are other routes also to reach there. So other people also who finished their attempts like me, dont loose hope, life has so many other oppurtunities waiting for us and
    now for sometime we can take a break who were working continously and consistently dedicated for this exam. All the best to all of you and Thanks Mrunal :)

    1. very inspirational!!

    2. God bless you Nishi.
      Best of Luck for the future ahead.

    3. I also finished my 4th and last attempt after leaving my job for last 3 years as I wanted to fully dedicate myself to this but as fate would have it, could not make it. The disappointment is not something i can describe in words but Life goes on.. There are newer avenues to explore. The feeling is somewhat same as what Nishi wrote.

So, Romaira Singh and all others , just stay positive and good luck in life!

      1. the same is my case.. got 2 interview calls previously.but my last and 4th attempt this year has left me totally shaken.but dont worry there are other avenues and oppurtunites….never lose hope and prove ur talents in other field……there is always day after night……..

    4. I was looking out for a forum to say something. My feelings are similar to the one expressed by Nishi and reciprocated by Harpreet. It wud really be a gud idea to stay in touch with people like you who are damn positive in life. I can bet, you are going to go beyond IAS.

      Stay in touch friends,,both Nishi and Harpreet and other such people who are going to start another race in life.

      And yes, Mrunal!, many thanks to you. God bless!

      1. hats off !! to all of u. every person must have thinking like u. life never stops it gose on …..

    5. Nishi, gud luck for your future endeavors.

    6. @yo yo very much thanks for your harsh comments…bcz it has brought out the reality around…life has to revolve around heartless ppl like you….but dude dont worry ppl like you give us courage to stand more firmly & prove your kind of ppl wrong….if you dont agree look at mrunal…

      everyone will accept he is rendering far better services than any IAS officer…

      1. Hey Honey Singh — why dont make a rap song –“Kyunki UPSC hai Balatkari”. In this you can talk about how you got screwed instead of those stupid songs derogating women for a change.

    7. But you should not choose the same names. Doesnt it represent your idols or thinking?

      1. Do u have Ego Problem ?

      2. Hi Neena…………R u the same Neena who fought with me on a different topic ?
        Where have u been yaar ? ;-)

  27. Hi,is there any way we can crosscheck the list …I mean any chances of human error in he preparation of the list.

  28. sir i expected 200-210 on an av , sc category,but cud not make it .

    1. exactly the same case mine was clearing since last two year but i think this year they messed UP even SC cutoffs

  29. “Never mind failures; they are quite natural, they are the beauty of life–these failures. What would life be without them? It would not be worth having if it were not for struggles. Where would be the poetry of life? Never mind the struggles, the mistakes. I never heard a cow tell a lie, but it is only a cow—never a man. So never mind these failures, these little backslidings; hold the ideal a thousand times; and if you fail a thousand times, make the attempt once more” – Swami Vivekananda
