On 05.03.2021, the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) brought out a notification for the recruitment in 2021 to 337 positions of Review Officer (RO) and Assistant Review Officer (ARO). The examination board will conduct the Preliminary Examination for the post of RO and ARO on 5th December 2021. UPPSC will conduct the Main Examination on 10th April 2022. In this blog, we are going to have a look at UPPSC RO ARO Cut Off in detail. Let us begin:

UPPSC RO ARO Cut Off

When an examination is announced, along with maximum obtainable marks and minimum marks to pass the examination are also announced. If you obtain the minimum specified marks, it does not mean that you have qualified in that exam to move to the next stage of the recruitment process. Based on several factors, cut-off percentages/marks are decided. If you obtain at least those cut-off marks, you will qualify to move to the next stage of the process of recruitment. 

The cut-off mark is the minimum mark or percentage that a candidate requires for qualifying for the next stage.

In other words, Cut-off marks are the minimum percentages or marks that must be obtained by a candidate so that the candidate can qualify for the next stage of the recruitment process for the post for which UPPSC conducted the examination. Previous year’s cut-offs provide a good idea about upcoming recruitment conducted in the past years. 

The UPPSC RO ARO Cut Off Marks are decided based on the average of the combined marks obtained by the candidate who took the examination. Any candidate who sat for the examination and has got marks higher than or equal to the cut-off marks will be declared qualified in that specific examination.

Types of Cut offs

The cut-off mark technique for an examination can be of one of the following 3 types: 

  • Sectional Cut-off
  • Overall Cut-off
  • Both Sectional & Overall Cut-off

The selection of which technique to use is left to the examination board. In the official notification that has been issued for recruitment to the position of RO and ARO by UPPSC, 3 different cut-offs have been specified for the UPPSC RO ARO Examination2021, as mentioned below.
