UPSC Prelims 2019 cutoff would be:-
General: 98 maximum
OBC: 91–95
SC/ST: Below 83
After analysis of last 3 years paper everybody can estimate prelims cutoff with this formula:
Cutoff= 2×no of easy question+1× no of Medium questions + (1/3)× no of difficult questions.
Cutoff: 23×2+1×38+(1/3)×39=97
Why am I using this formula:
  1. Easy questions: Actually aspirants selected in prelims attempt all easy questions with 100 percent accuracy that's why I multiplied with 2.
  2. Medium questions: Here aspirants attempt all the questions but accuracy lies between 60 to 80 percent so minimum marks scored after all deduction will be equal to no of questions.
  3. Difficult questions: Here attempt and accuracy both fall below 50 percent.
Prelims 2016:
Cutoff approx = 2×27+1×50+(1/3)×23= 112. 
Official cutoff was 116 for general

Prelims 2017:
Cutoff approx = 2×27+1×37+(1/3)×36= 103. 
Official cutoff was 105.34.

Prelims 2018 :

Cutoff approx : 2×17+1×55+(1/3)×28=98

Prelims 2018


General: 97–99

OBC : 92–95

SC/ST: below 85

Final cutoff was approximately same.
