UPSC CAPF Cut Off 2020

We will majorly focus on UPSC CAPF Cut off for last 5 years which will give you a clear idea about clearing cut off of UPSC CAPF Exam 2020. First of all, we will discuss UPSC CAPF Exam Pattern at a glance so that understanding the CAPF Cut off scenario will be easy.

UPSC CAPF Assitant Commandant Exam is conducted in 3 Main stages:

  • Written Examination (Objective + Descriptive)
  • Physical Efficiency Test (PET) and Medical Test
  • Interview/Personality Test
Stages of UPSC CAPF Exam Cut off Calculation
Written Examination (Objective + Descriptive) Marks Considered in Cut Off
Physical Efficiency Test (PET) and Medical Test NOT Considered in Cut Off
Interview/Personality Test Marks Considered in Final Cut Off

You need to understand 2 types of UPSC CAPF Cut Off Marks:

  1. CAPF Written Exam Cut Off (Out of 250, Only Paper 1)= To Qualify Stage 1
  2. CAPF Overall Cut Off (Out of 600)= To find your Name in ‘Final Merit List’

If Only Paper 1 Marks are considered in Cut Off, then what is the relevance of Paper 2 (Descriptive Paper)?

UPSC CAPF Paper 1 Marks are considered in Cut off Calculation. But you need to know that Paper 2 of UPSC CAPF is Qualifying in Nature. You need to score minimum 25% Marks in Paper 2 to qualify for Next Stage of Exam (Minimum Qualifying Marks are different for Ex-Servicemen which you can see in the image below!)

But you must aim to score high marks in Paper 2 also. Because Paper 2 Marks will be considered in Final Merit List (Out of 600)!
