The Union Public Service Commission will release the IES 2024 cutoff after the declaration of the final result. The Commission conducted the IES 2024 exam on February 18, 2024, at the designated exam centres across the nation. Shiksha.com took the inputs from the candidates who appeared in the exam. The candidates shared that the IES 2024 cutoff is expected to remain low. The candidates shared that the difficulty level of the paper was high. The Commission asked time-consuming questions hence most of the average candidates were unable to attempt full paper.

The Union Public Service Commission is expected to release the 2024 result soon on its official website - upsc.gov.in. The candidates can get here the IES 2024 exam analysis after the first shift of the exam. The candidates will be required to compare their marks with their category cutoff. In case they have more marks than their category cutoff, they must communicate this to the Commission (exam controller) in case they are not selected for that phase of exam. The Union Public Service Commission will release the IES cutoff under the examination tab of the official website. The UPSC IES 2023 cutoff mark will be the aggregate marks of the last selected candidate in a particular category. The Commission will release the IES prelims, mains and the final cutoff separately. The UPSC ESE exam will be conducted as per the following:

  • Prelims in February, 2024
  • Mains in June, 2024
  • Interviews in September, October and November, 2024

Q:   What is the expected cutoff for the IES 2024 exam?

A:

The Union Public Service Commission conducted the IES 2024 exam on February 18, 2024. Shiksha.com captured the students' reaction after the IES 2024 exam. All the candidates who appeared in the exam mentioned that the Commission asked difficult questions this year. Most of the questions were lengthy and hence more time was required to read and understand the questions. 

The candidates also shared that the IES cutoff 2024 will remain low.

 

Q:   When will IES 2024 Result be declared?

A:

The Union Public Service Commission conducted the IES 2024 exam on February 18, 2024, at the designated exam centres.

Q:   Is there negative marking in the IES prelims exam?

A:

Yes, there is negative marking in the IES prelims exam. The Union Public Service Commission mention the quantum of negative marking in the official notification. The Commission also mentions the total mark of the question paper and the structure of the exam such as how many questions will be asked in the paper.

The Commission also mention the negative marketing as the following:

The penalty for the incorrect answer is one-third of the total marks assigned to the correct answer. The Commission assigns 2 marks for the correct answer. Hence, 0.66 marks will be deducted for each incorrect answer.

Q:   What is UPSC IES cutoff?

A:

The candidates should note that the IES cutoff means the minimum marks required to get selected in a particular category. The IES 2024 cutoff is the minimum score required to qualify for the Indian Engineering Services exam. The Commission arrange the candidates in the order of their merit list and select the candidates in accordance with the number of vacancies in that particular category.

The cutoff is determined by various factors, including the number of vacancies, the difficulty level of the question paper, and the number of candidates who appeared in the exam.

 

Q:   How many vacancies are there in IES 2024 exam?

A:

The Union Public Service Commission notified 167 vacancies for the IES 2024 exam. The Commission released the IES 2024 notification online on September 26, 2023. The Commission mentioned the number of vacancies in the exam but the Commission did not provide the classification of vacancies as per their engineering stream. 

The Commission is expected to mention the stream-wise vacancies in the official result pdf or in the final result pdf. 

 

Q:   How many branches are there in the IES exam?

A:

The Union Public Service Commission conduct the Engineering Service Exam (ESE) every year to recruit candidates for different positions. This exam is popularly called as the IES exam among the candidates because of the name of service, the candidates are assigned to. 

The Commission conduct the IES exam every year in the following four engineering streams:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering

UPSC ESE(IES) Tie Resolution Principle

Tie-principle will be implemented when two or more candidates secure the same marks. The UPSC ESE (IES) tie principle is explained below:

1. The candidates with more marks in subject/technical papers plus marks of Personality Test may be ranked higher;

2.  In case the total marks in the subject/technical papers plus marks of Personality Test are equal, the candidate who is senior in age may be ranked higher.

Q:   What is the Tie-Resolution factor for IES exam?

A:

The Union Public Service Commission releases the Tie-Resolution principle in the IES cutoff pdf. The Commission mentions the following in the cutoff pdf: 

Wherever two or more candidates have secured equal aggregate marks in ESE the tie(s) have been resolved in accordance with the principles approved by the Commission, viz.
(i) The candidates with more marks in subject/technical papers plus marks of Personality Test may be ranked higher;
(ii) In case the total marks in the subject/technical papers plus marks of Personality Test are equal, thecandidate who is senior in age may be ranked higher.

IES Cutoff 2020

IES Cut off 2020 was released by UPSC on April 15. The IES cut off was released for all the groups separately. In addition to the engineering branch, the IES cutoff was released for all the categories separately. The IES cutoff 2020 was highest for the Civil Engineering branch. The lowest among them all was for Electronic and Tele-communication. The candidates should analyse the dynamics between the number of IES vacancies, the difficulty level of the paper and the IES cut off. This will help them to arrive at the quantum of preparation effort required for the selection in the IES exam. The Union Public Service Commission released the IES cut off for all the engineering branches and categories. We have summarised the IES Prelims cutoff 2020.

UPSC IES main exam 2020 was conducted across the nation in two sessions. After both sessions, the candidates shared their experience with the IES main exam. The IES 2020 question papers were conceptual and lengthy. The candidates found paper I conceptual and paper II as lengthy. So the overall IES 2020 cutoff will increase because the number of vacancies is less in comparison to the previous year. The IES main exam was conducted amid the coronavirus pandemic and it will have an impact on the absent ratio of the IES main exam 2020. See here the student reaction video for the IES 2020 main exam paper I. Also, the candidates were expecting the lower cutoff this year because the paper was a bit tough and lengthy.

IES 2019 Cutoff Details

UPSC has released the IES Exam cut-off for the prelims and main exam. The IES cut-off is declining in recent years. The IES Prelims cut-off (max marks 500) is going down for all the Engineering branches. The IES Prelims Cut-off trend is visible from the following details:
