    Re: Minimum cutoff marks for Combined Defence Services?

    Hi'


    yes there would be penalty for each wrong answer in cds exam

    1)each wrong answer given by the candidate to that particular question 1/3 (0.33) marks would be deducted(objective question)..

    2)if the candidate gives more than one answer,it would be treated as wrong answer and lead to deduction of marks

    3)if the question is left blank and no answer given by the candidate then no marks would be allotted,no penalty

    thank you

    Re: Minimum cutoff marks for Combined Defence Services?

    Hai Friend...,




    >>>> Combined Defence Services conducted is good opportunity for candidates to join the Indian Forces at a more mature age like after graduation as minimum eligibility criteria for it will be must have passed graduation and the more your chances of getting higher rank in your career as an officer....



    Candidates who are studying in the final year Degree course and have yet to pass the final year degree examination can also apply but they will be required to submit proof of passing the degree examination to reach the Army HQ/Rtg.


    Coming to cutoff marks of CDS as asked by you can be of average of 70% as a safer side.
    butt It would be better if the candidates try to score at least 45 % marks in each of the papers and the overall aggregate above 60 % .

    As far as Officer’s Training Academy is concerned , marks of Mathematics is not considered while preparing the merit list for the interview, so one again fair chance for the students of humanity and arts back ground.




    .......GOOD LUCK..........

    In CDS they don\'t give you any advantage of being SC or OBC , so you have to be mentally strong . . . If we talk about minimum passing marks then it is not written anywhere regarding the same , hence , stop thinking much and start studying hard. You dont get this job as a chance but you have to give your best shot to earn it.
