UPSC CSAT-2011 Cutoff will be at Record Low

www.Goindocal.com

The CSAT -2011 has been successfully conducted by the high profile Central Government recruiter of the India with the brand new pattern.

The UPSC had given the new flavor to the examination by adding the aptitude test. Over 4 lakh aspirants applied for the IAS, out of which around 11,000 will be selected for the mains.
Paper-I followed more or less the previous trend of UPSC PT, however number of question has been reduced to 100 from earlier 150.

Paper-II, the aptitude test paper, was the newly introduced paper had 80 questions from General Mental Ability, Comprehension, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Basic Numeracy, Decision-making and Problem-solving, Logical Reasoning and Analytical Ability.

The students finds themselves in tricky position as the negative marks has eroded their marks to significant level.

The choices of GS paper were quite close that led the commitment of error while handling the question.
Similar situation was in the Aptitude paper where students find themselves quite comfortable after the examination but post examination matching of answer slides them down.

So the cut-off for the CSAT-2011 will definitely come down substantially low about 45-50% combined.
Paper I= 45 %
Paper II=55%
Chances are strong, that cut off will be decided after combining the Paper I and Paper II.
Solution of Paper II

I scroed 50 in paper-I and 120 in paper-II what would be my fate... i think i m in the wrong side...

PK said...

Sir, I am getting 67 in Paper -I and 115/120 in paper -II. Total 180+ . Is there any chance for me. Though I have started for mains, a little hitch regarding the cutoff. I am from General Category. Regards- Siddhartha Singh

yuvraj said...

i guess you r predicting it too low..

check other sites and you will find majority students scoring 200+..

whats the basic behind your calculation?

Mani said...

@Pankaj - My score is 50 in Paper-I & 126 in Paper-II, total = 176. What do you think are my chances of a call in the mains?

anoop said...

Hi, I have scored 66 in paper1 and 130 in paper2. Total 196... I belong to General category. Is there any chance for me? Thanks. Anoop Tyagi

Pankaj Kumar said...

@Anoop:You are on the safer side ...Put your efforts for the mains...
All the best

PK said...

Dear sir, Is 180-183 is enough for mains? pl reply

mayank said...

My score as follows and this is my last attempt so want to know if I I could qualify the exam.

1. paper II 120
2. paper I 55
total : 175

Pankaj Kumar said...

My Basis is quite simple to find the qualifying marks as per my own personal talk with the group of students belongs to various background some statistical tools of permutation combination, i found wide disparity.....in performance.

210 is topper brash......120 is lower.

Maximum student I got close to 150.

Another region is good number of absentee in the CSAT-2011 will reduce the Cut-off.

UPSC will recruit around 900 officers so more result is on the card...

If one had scored around 200 they can be sure by 95%.

those who had scored:
185-200....chances are 85%
170-184....Chances are 75%
Any way 70% chance will be taken as good chance..

so be optimistic...Because it is
Unpredictable Public Service Commission(UPSC)

All the best

Pankaj Kumar said...

@Manoj:It is harsh but in this score it will BE tough for you to get mains card.

Sit and find your week point and draft your strategy for CSAT-2012

All the best

Pankaj Kumar said...

@ Mayank:Your score looks like brink of making it,u cant take chance go ahead for mains preparation and hope for the best.

Their are more than70% chance is in favor of you

Wishing you all the best

Pankaj Kumar said...

HARIZ said...

I gave CSAT just for the heck of it since I had prepared for CAT and I am GK aficionado. My calculated score will be in the range of 210(~55 + ~155). The problem is the subjects I have chosen are Hindi in which I am totally weak, Geography & History which are my fav subjects but I believe answering the mains will require much more than mere interest. My question is I won't be able to start serious prep until Jul 20 due to prior commitments, will I have enough time to cover up for the mains considering my written Hindi is terrible? I'll be obliged by any help, thanks.

abhishek.. said...

my predicted score is
paper 1 : 65
paper 2 : 168
total : 233
what are my chances considering that paper 1 might have a higher cut off ?

Pawan Pandey said...

Sir I scored 65-70 in paper 1.165+ in paper 2.As you have given figures I should clear but I have serious doubts about my performance in paper 1 and paper was just too easy.As far as I could analyse it the average score would be:-
Paper 1:-around 40.
Paper 2:-around 90-100

My question is , Is there any surety that UPSC will take combined cutoff?

uday said...

Hi Pankaj sir,
I scored 157/400,
Any chances for me to clear csat??

Harpreet said...

In paper - 2 aptitude , it would be naive to predict that cutoff will be lower than 55% because it was the first time and many CAT and bank PO aspirants also might be there in the exam and the final selection would most probably depend on Paper - 1 , GS..because the level of real knowledge blended with quick and right choice of answer is the only thing which equals the all India level and those who score good in paper - 1 (approx more than 40%) can easily qualify CSP..but probability of selection always depends on the intensity of preparation and hardwork..good luck all and keep studying

Anonymous said...

hi,what could be the cut off for sc and st candidates to clear prelims

Harpreet said...

category wise cutoff is there for sure because the seats of different categories are reserved and reserved categories are made to compete with their like categories people..I cleared my PCS prelims exams and in states also cutoff depends on combined scores and number of distribution of candidates of different categories because there is no point in giving privilege to a handicapped person if you are making him to compete with others who dont need any privilege..

Harpreet said...

Cut off for Sc and St candidates depends on the number of sc candidates participated in the exam and how much they score independent of the other general candidates..

pradeep sahu said...

my score in paper 1 is 70 and in paper 2 is 100

@All: As per the renewed feed back and discussion it looks the magic is 200.
so if any body is over the 200 which stands 50% of the total marks is in absolutely safe zone for general candidates.

In any case every body has to prepare for mains ,so please don't wast your time and begin your mains preparation, either you are 200+ or below.

Hi Pankanj,

The answers published by institutes may not be all correct. There is +-10 questions or 20 to 25 marks always there. So any score above 180+ is good. Also this year, many ppl skipped writting exams. So assuimg better chance for all those serious candidates. This is my second attempt. I failed to qualify for Mains (891 in Mains). Assuming 110 (GS) and 130 (CSAT), hoping to do well in Mains. To all, this is exam with luck and effort. Please start your preparation for Mains. If in case not qualified, you guys will try next time. All the best....

Thanks Pankaj for helping all the people with patience. Great work.

for sure differential weightage pattern will b followed of which paper1 wud play a key role........ coz upsc need serious candidiates......evn paper2 is heavily scored by ,cat,ssc,bank po junta...and on an avg it was scored by d most ppl

Hello Pankaj Sir, I have calculated my marks on the various answer keys (Quite conflicting indeed!) and depending upon that I would score around 189-195; this was my first attempt, I see you've mentioned 85% of selection chances of mine, Can you suggest how they ope for cutoffs? 185 to 200 itself is a big corridor isnt it ?

Many thanks for your answer in advance.

@Mayank:You are certainly in the corridor of uncertainty as far as your score is concerned.

As you have said that this is your first attempt so don't bother about the result,hope for the best and keep reading for the mains.

What is the cut-off for ST candidates as compared to General category students. Is 160+ score is sufficient for a ST candidate to clear the Prelims ?

abhishek said...

my predicted score is
paper 1 : 65
paper 2 : 168
total : 233
what are my chances considering that paper 1 might have a higher cut off ?

Anonymous said...

Hello Pankaj Sir,
my scores are (considering 2-3 keys floating on the Net)

Best- 112+74 = 184
Optimistic - 106+60 = 166
Worst - 102+51 = 156

Category- ST.

Dear Pankaj,

I am from PH category (General) and this is my first attempt without any preparation for prelims in fact and my scores are as under:

Lower Side: 1st Paper : 30Marks
2nd Papere: 75Marks

Higher Side: 1st Paper: 35 Marks
2nd Paper: 85 Marks

Please let me know how does cut off works for PH category and what are the probablities if I take this seriously and appear for exam (if I do not get selected for this time) next time getting in to mains

Thanks in Adavance

Pankaj Kumar said...

@Karthik Bapat:It is going to be very tough because your marks is quite low.UPSC dont have clear policy about PH,in past they have adjusted in their respective category.In any case CUT off wont come down below 150.

Don't feel down try to build your knowledge base for the 2012.

All the best

mayank said...

To begin with it's a compliment; you are doing a phenomenal job, I've checked out many other blogs which are very rude while tackling the students who are in 150-160 range, your physiological approach is truly amazing, I goggled all the answered I've marked and found it to be at 195 to be exact. Should I remain optimistic?

Pankaj Kumar said...

@mayank: Thanks for your compliments.You are close to make in ,keep focus on mains.

babloo said...

written 8 mains , clred pre since my 1st attempt ,belongs to st ctgry , interview 5 times , my score is paper1-82,paper2-75.according 2 my experience gs was the BIGGEST TASK bcs its options r to much close.csat was easy bt time taking.paper's standerd deside by the options given and not by the how much ouestion u know. so i think cut off wil b btwen 165 to 180 for genral .
reply awaited from public .
