Factor Affecting CDS 2023 Cut off:-
The cutoff for the Combined Defence Services (CDS) exam is influenced by several factors, including the difficulty level of the exam, the number of vacancies available, the number of candidates appearing for the exam, the reservation policy of the government, and the cutoff trends of previous years.
The difficulty level of the CDS exam is a crucial factor that significantly impacts the cutoff. If the exam is more challenging, the cutoff may be lower to account for the level of difficulty. Additionally, the number of vacancies available for a particular year’s CDS exam can affect the cutoff, with a higher number of vacancies potentially resulting in a lower cutoff.
The number of candidates appearing for the CDS exam can also affect the cutoff. If the number of candidates is high, the competition is tougher, and the cutoff may be higher. The government’s reservation policy also plays a role in determining the cutoff, with more reserved category seats potentially leading to a lower cutoff for those categories.
