IFS – Forest Exam Result & Cut off Marks

The UPSC will announce the IFS – Forest Exam Result for all its exam stages only on its website. In the form of a PDF, the UPSC will release the cut-off list. Subsequently, the candidates can download it later. However, the list will hold the name of the qualified candidates only. As a matter of fact, UPSC will conduct the IFoS prelims exam in October.

Given that, the UPSC will declare its result later. This is because the UPSC has not announced the result date till now. Moreover, the candidates can check their results simply by putting in their details. These can either be their roll number or their registration number with date of birth details.

Nonetheless, the candidates who could score more than the cut-off marks can qualify for the next round. Moreover, the IFoS exam consists of three stages to qualify by the candidates. These are:
  • Firstly, the preliminary exam
  • secondly, the Main’s exam, and
  • Lastly, The Personal Interview
Among these, only the first two stages are online. However, the final stage is offline.
