The written examination of the UPSC Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) 2021 was held today. Paper I on General Ability and Intelligence was held from 10 AM to 12 PM while Paper II on General Studies, Essay and Comprehension was held from 2 PM to 5 PM. With the completion of the written examination, it’s now a period of apprehension for the students as to when the results will be declared.
Based on the result declaration trends of the written examination for the last five years, it can be said that this year, the results are very likely to be declared within 50-90 days from the examination date, i.e. within September 27, 2021 to November 06, 2021.
|Year||Examination Date||Result Date||Difference|
|2016||June 26, 2016||September 09, 2016||75 days|
|2017||July 23, 2017||October 18, 2017||87 days|
|2018||August 12, 2018||January 10, 2019||151 days|
|2019||August 18, 2019||October 18, 2019||61 days|
|2020||December 20, 2020||February 18, 2021||50 days|
Keeping aside the trend of 2018, the remaining four years did not see a great difference between the examination date and the result date. Although no official date for declaring the UPSC CAPF 2021 written examination results has been announced yet, candidates can expect the results by the first week of November.
Once the results are officially declared, candidates can check the same by visiting upsc.gov.in. Under the ‘Examination’ drop-down menu, they have to click on ‘Active Examinations’ and again click on Central Armed Police Forces (ACs). A pdf of the qualified students will be available for the candidates to view and download.
The UPSC CAPF 2021 cut-off marks for the written examination depends on both Papers I and II. Since UPSC has not released the cut-off marks for the 2020 and 2019 written examination officially, the expected cut-off for 2021 will be based on the cut-off trends from 2014-2018. The maximum cut-off for Paper went as high as 123.65 in 2017 while for Paper I and II combined, it was 206 in the same year.
|Year||Paper I||Paper I and II (combined)|
Compared to the cut-offs in 2017, the ones in 2018 were significantly less. So far the cut-offs for 2021 is concerned, candidates can expect a cut off above 110 for Paper I and above 150 for Paper I and II combined. Note that Paper I will be evaluated first and Paper II will only be evaluated if the candidate secures the minimum qualifying marks for Paper I. The Commission will allot the minimum qualifying marks for each paper separately.
Candidates qualifying for the written examination will be called for the Physical Standards/Physical Efficiency Tests and Medical Standards Tests. The ones who meet the physical standards will have to go through the Physical Efficiency Test. Through this examination, a total of 159 vacancies will be filled, tentatively. UPSC further also holds 13 vacancies as reserved vacancies.
