IES cut-off for the Prelims: Candidates of General, OBC, SC and ST category will have to secure 15%, (75 out of 500) whereas physically handicapped (PH) candidates will have to obtain 10% (50 marks out of 500) of the total marks allotted in two papers. This will make the candidate eligible for the next round of examination.

IES cut-off for the Mains: The cut-off for this round is 20% (120 marks out of 600) for General, OBC, SC and ST categories and PH candidates will have to secure 10% (60 marks out of 600). This will enable the candidate to appear for the interview round.
