RPF Cutoff 2018-19: RPF 2018-19 is three tier exam that is conducted for the recruitment of Constables and Sub-Inspectors in Railway Police Force (RPF) and Railway Police Special Force (RPSF) in Indian Railways. The three stages of the exam are – (a) Computer Based Test (CBT), (b) 1st Physical Efficiency Test (PET), Physical Measurement Test (PMT) & Document Verification (DV) and (c) 2nd PET, PMT & DV. The 2nd and 3rd stage of the selection procedure are mandatory but are just qualifying in nature and no marks will be awarded for these two stages. Candidates who cleared the RPF cutoff of CBT appeared for the 1st round of PET, PMT & DV. The RPF Cutoff for the CBT is the minimum qualifying marks that candidates must secure in order to be eligible to appear for the PET & PMT round.
RPF has released the RPF CBT Result for SI and Constable posts for all Groups. The RRPF result for 1st PMT, PET & DV too is released for Group E of SI and Constables.

Official RPF Cutoff 2018-19 For SI
Candidates must first be aware of the different types of RPF Cut Off.
There are three types of RPF Cut Off marks as follows:
- 1. RPF Qualifying Cutoff: The RPF Qualifying Cutoff is the minimum marks candidates must secure in the Computer Based Test (CBT) to qualify in the exam. This has been released by the authority along with the RPF notification and is 35% for UR candidates and 30% for SC/ST candidates.
- 2. RPF Overall Cutoff: This is minimum total marks that candidates must secure in the CBT. This is decided after the exam is conducted based on the total number of candidates appeared in the exam, number of vacancies, and the difficulty level of the exam. RPF has released this RPF cutoff for SI on the official website.
- 3. Sectional Cutoff: This is the minimum marks that candidates must secure in each of the sections of the exam. RPF Computer Based Test has three sections. The sectional cutoff is different for the three different sections. Candidates must clear the cutoff of the respective sections. RPF hasn’t released the section-wise cutoff marks.
If a candidate clears all the three cutoff, he/she can appear for the next stage of the recruitment process, i.e. for PET and PMT.
