    IES / ESE 2018 Cutoff (All Stages) – Release Dates, Detailed Analysis

    The cutoff marks for the IES ESE examination 2018 will be released after the final results have been declared. The performance of the candidates plays a huge role in finalising the cutoff marks. The general rule is that the cutoff marks are decided, so the UPSC has a list of candidates which is seven times the number of vacancies.
