- On 7th August 2016, UPSC had conducted preliminary exam for civil services aka CSAT.
- 16th September 2016, they’ve declared result= within 40 days. Seems a new record for UPSC!
- Total ~15,500 candidates qualified for Mains-2016 against 1,079 final vacancies. (15,445 to be precise.)
- To check your result:
- Official UPSC: Civil services Result Link | Forest Service Result Link
- Alternate Filserver Link (if UPSC website unresponsive, I’ve uploaded same files here)
- Those who cleared prelims, need to fillup a new form online before mains. It’s called “Detailed Application form” (DAF).
- DAF will be available from 7th October to 20th October 6PM.
- Civil Service Mains to start from 3rd December 2016.
- Those who qualified – congratulations.
- Those who did not qualify- this is not the end of the world: Look at the right hand green box for the upcoming exams and for next year prelims, rectify for the lacunas in your strategy.
Cutoff marks not declared, YET
Unlike RAS prelims, UPSC has not revealed cutoffs marks of Prelim-2016 immediately after declaration of result.
Anyways, here are the cut-off marks in last prelims 2015:
# Subject to 10% marks in each of the seven competitive papers i.e. Essay, GS-I, GS-II, GS-III, GS-IV, Optional-I and Optional-II.
i easily scored 133-35 in paper-1 thanks to economy and geography lessons from mrunal.org, however, i found myself on periphery as far as paper-2 is concerned….i guess i manage to score only net 29-31 questions out of 80….and a little bad luck could have possibly ruined my prospects….this is to add that i am a branch manager of a nationalised bank and i got in merit list of at least 4-5 bank PO entrance in 2009-2010 nevertheless,entirely neglecting paper 2 is not advisable …the same is true for indian language in mains
