The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has successfully conducted the written examinations for Indian Economic Service (IES) and Indian Statistical Service (ISS) from July 16, to 18, 2021. With the conclusion of the examination, the aspirants are now on tenterhooks about result dates, as that day would bring them the news of whether they have qualified for the next round or not.
Based on the result declaration trends of the last five years, this year the results for the IES ISS written examinations are likely to be declared within 74-99 days. According to our calculations, the results may be declared on any date between September 30 to October 23, 2021.
For reference, here are the IES ISS result dates of the past 5 years. As can be seen, the result was announced very early in the year 2016, however on each year after that, the results have been made public a tad later.
|Year||Examination Date||Result Date||Difference|
|2020||October 26 – 28, 2020||January 23, 2021||99 days|
|2019||June 28-30, 2019||October 04, 2019||98 days|
|2018||June 29-July 01, 2018||September 11, 2018||74 days|
|2017||May 12-14, 2017||July 28, 2017||77 days|
|2016||May 13-15, 2016||June 18, 2016||36 days|
Keeping aside the trend for 2016, the last 4 years saw a great difference between the examination date and the result declaration date. Although UPSC hasn’t declared the official date for releasing the result, candidates can expect them by the last week of October, 2021.
Besides the result date, the cut off are important data pertaining to the results.
The UPSC IES ISS cut-off is the minimum score out of 1000 marks that is required to qualify for the next round of the examination. In the last five years, the maximum cut-off for the IES examination is 447 while the minimum cut-off is 334. Similarly, for the ISS examination, the maximum cut-off has been 445 while the minimum cut-off stands at 386. However, the cut-offs saw both an upward and downward trend in the last 5 years. So far the written examination for UPSC IES ISS 2021 is concerned, students can expect a cut off above 399 for the IES category and within the range of 400-450 for the ISS category.
Based on the performance in the written examination, candidates will be called for an Interview/Personality Test. At the time of the same, candidates will have to produce original documents for verification purposes. In the meantime, they must keep an eye on the official website upsc.gov.in for regular updates.
This year, the number of vacancies in terms of Junior Time Scale for the post of Indian Economic Servic (IES) is 15 and that for the Indian Statistical Service (ISS) is 11. There is only 1 vacancy for candidates belonging to the PwD category. This vacancy is only reserved under ISS and not for IES. A candidate can only compete for either IES or ISS depending on their eligibility.
