The UPSC civil services prelims exam take place as per planned timetable and students need to find their names in the prelims rank list. The prelim is considered two papers- General Studies paper 1 and the CSAT. It is of the qualifying feature having 33% marks that are needed to be acquired by students. The marks obtained in the GS 1 will amount to be graded. Each year the Union Public Service Commission recommends a specified minimum mark which is cut-off.

The UPSC civil services exam is managed in three phases i.e. the UPSC prelims, the UPSC mains and the UPSC personality test/interview round. In each stage, applicants must obtain required cut-off marks as per statement of UPSC so that they get through the examination and go to the following step. Prelims are the primary obstruction that is required by students to jump over if wish to turn out to be an IAS officer.

This mark is merely the scores of the former candidate in the merit list organized by the UPSC. The list is sorted out in the order of descending for the marks gained. The merit list is put in the order consistent with the number of posts in every class for a certain year. For the sample, if there are 300 posts for OBC class in a year, the mark of the former applicant in the OBC list (of 300) make the cut-off for that category. The UPSC bring to light the cut-off mark just after the complete course of the civil services exam is completed taking in the announcement of the final result.
