    dear friend the merit of ota is generally based on the english exam as it is hard to secure marks in gk exam so if you are getting around 60 questions right after calculating the negative marks and 40 in gk then you will qualify the written.

    hey....
    for this you must score minimum 40% in OTA exam, it is not the cuttoff
    cutoff is not fixed it varies with merit.
    if you got 40% it means not that you are selected it depends on the merit.

    Dear student,
    The UPSC hasn't decided any specific cut-off marks for the CDS-OTS exams..
    It generally depends on the performance of candidates appearing in the exams per 6 months.
    Although,its usually said to be a 40%,,u can't be assured of being selected after scoring it.
    So I would advice u to look after your performance,,rather the qualifying marks,,as a good performance would assure u of being selected.
    Good luck.
