BPSC (Bihar PCS) expected cutoff 2018

The Bihar Public Service Commission has published the official answer key on 24 December 2018. There are various questions where the answer is in variance with the right answer. The expected cutoff, after the official answer key, is set to decrease because the candidates have to compare their answers with the official answer key and hence they will variance in the actual numbers.

The BPSC Prelims Exam 2018 was conducted on 16 December 2018. The BPSC had notified 1465 seats in the official notification. So, for 1465 seats, the number of candidates who will qualify for the BPSC Main Exam will be around 15 to 20 times to that of the notified seats. So the number of candidates who will qualify in the Bihar PCS Prelims will be around 25 to 30 thousand. This can be a golden chance for the candidates who are preparing the BPSC Exams.

The expected cutoff will be the interplay of the following factors
1. Number of seats notified in the official notification
2. Number of candidates appeared in the Bihar PCS(BPSC) Prelims Exam
3. Difficulty level of the BPSC Prelims Question Paper

BPSC 2018 Answer Key

Number of Seats Notified

This year the Bihar Public Service Commission had notified the BPSC Prelims Exam for 1465 seats, which is more in comparison to the recent years. These seats can increase if the commission keep including the requirements of the various departments under this advertisement. So if the seats increase the expected cutoff of the BPSC Prelims will reduce further.

Number of candidates appeared in the exam

This factor is the level of competition faced by the candidates. The logic is simple, higher the number of candidates appearing in the exam higher will be the level of competition and hence the higher cutoff for the exam. Here in this case also, the number of candidates appeared in this exam was higher in comparison to the recent years because of the higher number of seats notified in the official notification.

BPSC Prelims 2018 Answer Key

There is no official data for the number of candidates appeared in the BPSC Prelims Exam 2018. Only estimation about numbers of candidates appeared in the BPSC Prelims Exam 2018 is available. The number of estimated candidates who appeared in the BPSC Prelims will be around 4 lakhs. So the expected cut off will rise based on this factor.

Difficulty level of the BPSC Prelims Paper 2018

The Bihar PCS Prelims Question paper was of medium difficulty level and nothing came out of the blue. There were four to five questions which were difficult to find in the even good books. But these questions cannot make any difference in the cutoff because the majority of the candidates don’t know the answer of those questions.

The BPSC Pelims paper was very balanced, but one thing missing was the questions from the Environment and Ecology section of the General Studies syllabus. There were a good number of questions about world geography and Bihar’s physical features, but the in depth knowledge based questions were missing.

Bihar PCS Prelims 2018 Question Paper

The question paper followed the pattern of previous years and hence after analysing this factor, it is expected that the cutoff will remain low.

Expected Cutoff

After analysing all the above factors,we can conclude that the cutoff for this year BPSC prelims Exam will be lower in comparison to the previous year. The comparison chart is shown here
