Hi All WBCS Aspirants,

Hope everything is fine at your end and you've played well in this year's WBCS Prelim Exam.

THE FINAL CUTOFF MAY BE AROUND 116±3 FOR GENERAL CANDIDATES. PLEASE READ OUR EXPLANATION BELOW -

As per our R&D on the entire question paper, we've found the following stat on the quality & pattern of the 200 MCQ asked in the prelim exam this year.

(A) Easiest Questions = 40 > for all candidates who just appeared in the  exam without proper preparation as well as coaching
(B) Easy Questions = 40-45 > for those who prepare personally without  any guidance
(C) Moderate Questions = 30-40 > for those who are taking guidance from WBCS Experts and preparing themselves atleast  for last 1 year
(D) Tougher Questions = 30-40 > for those who are engaged in WBCS
preparation for last 2+ years
(E) Toughest Questions = 30-40 > for those expert WBCS Aspirants who
already have cracked WBCS Prelim atleast once and engaged in the study for last 3+ years.

Now we've to calculate the probable Cutoff. Our WBCS Prelim Experts have tried to analyze the cutoff as follows -

A most serious WBCS Aspirants can score -

From A+B = (40+40) x 100% = 80
From C = 40 x 90% = 36
From D = 40 x 70% = 28
From E = 40 x 30% = 12
--------------------------------
  TOTAL SCORE = 156
--------------------------------

A serious WBCS Aspirants can score -

From A+B = (40+40) x 100% = 80
From C = 40 x 75% = 30
From D = 40 x 40% = 16
From E = 40 x 20% = 8
--------------------------------
  TOTAL SCORE = 134
--------------------------------

An Regular WBCS Aspirants can score -

From A+B = (40+40) x 90% = 72
From C = 40 x 70% = 28
From D = 40 x 20% = 8
From E = 40 x 10 = 4
--------------------------------
  TOTAL SCORE = 112
--------------------------------

A Normal WBCS Aspirants can score -

From A+B = (40+40) x 70% = 56
From C = 40 x 50% = 20
From D = 40 x 20% = 8
From E = 40 x 5 = 2
--------------------------------
  TOTAL SCORE = 86
--------------------------------

A General Candidate Just Appeared can score -

From A+B = (40+40) x 60% = 48
From C = 40 x 40% = 16
From D = 40 x 10% = 4
From E = 40 x 0% = 0
--------------------------------
  TOTAL SCORE = 68
--------------------------------

Now as per our assumption approximately 100000 candidates (average)
appeared in this WBCS Prelim Exam 2013. Now percentage of students on basis of above question segregation -

Most Serious WBCS Aspirants = 100000 x 0.5% = 500
Serious WBCS Aspirants = 100000 x 0.5% = 500
Average WBCS Aspirants = 100000 x 1% = 1000
Normal WBCS Aspirants = 100000 x 1% = 1000
General Candidate = 100000 x 55% = 55000
Absent + Non-performing Candidates = 100000 x 42% = 42000
--------------------------------------------------------------
TOTAL CANDIDATES = 100000 (Approx.)
--------------------------------------------------------------

Now the mean marks of A, B, C, D (check above categories) = (156+134+112+86)/4=122

Now we've to deviate straightaway 5% from this mean marks as the actual performance of the aspirants obviously vary. Hence the resultant mean will be (122-5%)=115.9  i.e. 116 (rounded off).

So, we can say 116 will be the cutoff marks. To be safe player, it can be predicted that 116±3 will be the actual cutoff for this year's WBCS Prelim Exam (2013). So anyone who scored between the range of 113 to 119 may expect a call for WBCS Main Exam.

We can confirm all the aspirants who are beyond the usual threshold level of 120+ marks this year, will positively get a call for WBCS main exam 2013.

But those candidates who scored marks at a ranged between 105-110, may also get a chance to appear the main exam (if the deviation will be 10-12% from the mean marks). The deviation of cut off marks is purely depend upon the highest score. On basis of the highest score the cutoff will be fixed as its a percentile concept no a percentage concept.

SO THE FINAL CUTOFF MAY BE AROUND 116±3 FOR GENERAL CANDIDATES.

All the Other Backward Caste (OBC), Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) candidates should deduct 5% respectively from the WBCS General Cutoff marks to calculate their quota wise cutoff marks.

If you still in a pell-mell and getting worried whether you'll get a chance to appear WBCS Main Exam 2013 or not, please feel free to contact us by submitting comments or ask any new questions here only.

Wish all the WBCS Aspirants very best for the Main exam. Get set prepare yourself with heart and soul effort to crack the hard nut of Main exam. All the candidates having ANTHROPOLOGY & HISTORY as Optional subjects are requested to get in touch with us for Guaranteed Unique Quality notes and Doubt clearance over the issue.

NB: This is our pure assumption. None can perfectly predict the actual cutoff marks. Hence we've just predicted on the present scenario of the type of questions asked in the recent exam. This may not be 100% perfect as none can assure you the actual cutoff marks in this competitive exam field. We are not liable to any alteration or changes in the cutoff marks or any claims regarding the same issue.
