Factors that Determine OPSC OAS Cut Off

OPSC will consider the following points to decide the OAS cut off:

  • The number of candidates taking the exam: The number of candidates appearing for the exam determines the level of competition faced by the candidates. As the number of candidates who attempt the exam increases, the cut-off limit goes up as well. 
  • The difficulty level of the exam papers: An increment in the difficulty level of the papers brings down the OPSC OAS Cut Off as candidates score lower when attempting a relatively difficult paper.
  • The number of available vacancies: When there are many vacancies available, the cut off comes down since the OPSC OAS needs to fill a lot of positions. But, if the number of available vacancies is low, the cut-off increases since OPSC officials will be choosing the best candidates from the total number of candidates appearing for the exam, and the positions they have to fill are limited. 
  • Previous year cut offs: For most of the years, the cut off scores are not very far off from the previous year cut off scores. However, they vary from year to year.
  • Reservation norms: Different sets of rules and regulations apply to different candidate categories. Candidate categories such as OBC, SC and ST receive reservation benefits when it comes to cut-offs.
