UPSC has conducted an examination for selecting candidates with the extreme and ability to power over the post of District Magistrate the examination was conducted and a large no. of candidates have emerged with a bright hope and strong will to qualify the test and become the government servant,but the question arises what is the cut off gonna be when it comes to UPSC IAS exam so the UPSC uses the term minimum qualifying marks rather than cut off this minimum qualifying marks that the candidates have to score in order to become eligible for the proceeding selection criteria such as main exam followed by interview.The minimum qualifying marks technically speaking will be the mark of the last candidate (in the descending order of marks) who made it to the list, be it Mains list, Interview list or Final Rank list.With the latest research and our understandings we can say that the merit list of UPSC IAS exam depends on the no. of vacancies each year.Suppose there are 313 vacancies under OBC category this year, the mark of the last rank candidate in OBC category becomes the cut-off marks under OBC category.

The focus point to be noted that there were no seats reserved for the general category candidates that means candidate from any category even other than general can fill the seat as there is no reservation for general category candidates but the seats that has been allotted to other reserved casts such as CS,ST or OBC no general category candidate can fill up these seats.
