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.
The IES cutoff is declared at various stages to facilitate the easy short-listing of candidates. Given below are the details
IES cutoff for the Prelims: The cutoff for this round of examination is staggered. 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 cutoff 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.
