The Uttarakhand Public Service Commission (UKPSC) RO/ARO PRE Exam 2016 for 181 vacancies was successfully held on 26th June 2016 at various examination centres.

This time UKPSC RO/ARO PRE Exam 2016 paper was neither tough nor easy. One may call it moderate paper containing some dodging questions. Barring two /three question, Maths and reasoning section was easy. In General Studies part some questions seemed to be quite easy in first look but they were tricky and most of the candidates might have opted with the wrong choices if they were not dealt with proper attention. Some Uttarakhand GK questions were repeated while others were unfamiliar ones. Science questions were also not too easy to crack. So overall the paper was good for serious candidates.

The candidates of other states were not eligible for this exam so the competition is among bright and hardworking candidates of Uttarakhand only. The expected cut-off for RO/ARO PRE Exam 2016 would be around 95-100 (General). Although the General Studies was easy but with negative marking in any paper, it’s never easy to score 110/150 for every Tom Dick and Harry.


Category The expected cut-off Marks
General 95-100
OBC 85-90
SC 70-75
ST 65-70

So, those who have scored more than 95 marks should start preparations for RO/ARO mains and those who are near 90 marks have to wait for the official answer key and then fill up the objection formats in support of their claims in the disputed questions and answers (if any)

UKPSC will take about 15 times of the total seats (181) for RO/ARO exam so I hope you would find your names in the list of approximately 2700 aspirants clearing the first hurdle. Best of Luck Guys!

  3. Hi, Neeraj I have seen your prediction for PCS too. They were spot on.
    I am getting 94.50 (General Male).


    1. Dear aman,
      you have a good chance as the cut off could come some what lower than expected after the official answer key. Some questions will go for common marking while some have two answers which provides chance of controversy. Keep your fingers crossed!!!!

  4. dear sir,

    I am getting 95.75 marks (male) general.

    Should I prepare for mains or wait for results?

    thank you.

      1. 🙂 Thanks for lifting the spirits dear.

        Now suggest books, at least, for hindi section and GS specifically for UK.

        1. For GS, you have to revise almost every section viz history, geography, political science, science, current affairs, economics , uttarakhand GK. Questions can be asked from anywhere.
          For uttarakhand gk, two books – vincer and k n tripathi will suffice.
          For hindi, Lucent and some latest book specially published for this exam will work!!!

  5. Sir,
    I am getting 90 marks in general catg.
    do you have any idea about gen cut off(male).
    may 2011 me ukpsc lower subordinate ka paper diya tha usme mere 94.25 the or cut off gen 96.25 gayi thi.
    is there any chance for me to qualify pre exam .or its happen like as 2011.


    1. Dear charan, dont get upset from past failures. You have a chance coz the cut off could come lower than 95. There were some tricky questions so every one was counting them as correct. But after answer key, candidates who were claiming 102 marks have come to 93 Marks.

  6. Everyone is saying that there score is 100+ so how is room for 85+ how many candidate will be selected in pre this time typing for both r.o and a.r.o and one extra paper of computer test

          1. Sir for mains exam first of all there is typing test or written test??? Plz telll

            And how to prepare for mains exam plz give suggestion

  7. Sir mere st m 69 no aa re h kya koi chance h. Mains k liye plz reply me… agr h to hm bi mains ki tyari krte h pir..

    1. Mains ka paper bhi jaldi hi hona chahiye result declaration k bad. But Uttarakhand me kuch bhi ho sakta hai. Waise is paper me koi candidate court jaye aisa koi chance nhi hai so mains jaldi hoga.

  8. Do they conduct typing test along with mains exam or afterwards. I mean after a person has qualified in mains.

  9. Another silly query that I have. How many candidates do you suppose would have appeared for this exam ?
    In Nainital District including “Haldwani” total candidates were around 7000 as per newspapers next day.

    1. Harish, it doesnt matter how many candidates appeared. In any exam only 5 thousand candidates are competitors rest are only croud. So competition is among those 5k only!

  10. मेरिट इस प्रकार रहेगी(पुरुष)
    जनरल पुरुष: 96.25
    ओबीसी पुरुष: 90.75
    एस०सी० और एस० टी०:::जाको राखे साइयां मार सके न कोई,,,,plz आई एम् सॉरी पर आप लोगो को पेपर देने क बाद सीधे मैन्स की तयारी करनी चाहिए,,,,

  11. jyoti बहन
    कुछ दिन म रिजल्ट आ जाएगा तब तक चिंतामुक्त रहो अगर रिजल्ट सही रहा उसके बाद पर्याप्त वक़्त मिलेगा मैन्स क लिए
    और 20 नवंबर वाले की तयारी करो लोअर वाले की साथ साथ,,,,क्योकि gs उसमे pri में आएगा और Ro के मैन्स म फायदा तो होगा ही
