HPPSC Child Development  Project Officer (C.D.P.O.) & Tehsil Welfare Officer (T.W.O) Mains Exam Syllabus and Preparation

As we know HPPSC have already issued the Keys of Prelims Exam Held on 2/3/2014, so in next 2/3 weeks they will publish the result on the website and dates of the Mains Exam will also be published soon after the result Declaration. Mains will be probably held in July/August or one/ two months later, so till then those who will qualify, needs to prepare as good as they can because the competition is too much and the No of Posts are also very less. Lets See the analysis of No of seats and Maximum No. of candidates who will be eligible for the Mains Exam.

1. Child Development  Project Officer (C.D.P.O.)

Total Posts = 03
General category = 03

2. Tehsil Welfare  Officer (T.W.O)

Total Posts = 11
General Category = 04
SC of HP = 02
ST of HP = 01
Unreserved  Ex-SM of HP=04

Total Posts for General Category = 07
Total Posts for SC Category =  02
Total Posts for ST Category = 01
Total Posts for Unreserved  Ex-SM of HP=04

How many Times candidates will qualify for the mains ?

Official Word:

The number of candidates to be called for (Main) written examination will be 20  times of the total number of the vacancies. The candidates having been declared qualified in the Screening test will be entitled for admission to the (Main) written examination consisting of four papers.

So Total No of Candidates Who will Qualify for Mains:

General Category = 7 x 20 = 140 Candidates
SC of HP Category = 2 x 20 = 40 Candidates
ST of HP Category = 1 x 20 = 20 Candidates
Unreserved  Ex-SM of HP= 4 x 20 = 80 Candidates

Note: This is approximate No of calculations, although it may vary according to final official procedure.

Total No of Candidates who Will Qualify= 280 Candidates

Cut Off Analysis:

General Category: Approximately 140 Candidates of General will qualify for the Mains, So you can guess that what kind of Cut Off marks you can Expect, because the question paper was an average or more tough than average so if you say that you did 50% questions correct plus some TUKKA Probability Conversion Rate of 10-20 % with few questions still doubtful, Cut off will around 60-65 Marks and or may be Plus/Minus 5.

So conclusions is that if you are scoring Near 60 then start your preparation, because in Mains TUKKA Work is not going to help you and competition is very tough with all the senior Players and Experienced Uncles. :D

SC Category: Approximately 40 Candidates of SC will qualify for the Mains, So if you are Scoring Just above 50 then start preparing for the Mains.

ST Category: Approximately 20 Candidates of SC will qualify for the Mains, Because ST candidates are very less as compared to other categories, thus the chances of cut off score coming down is obvious,  So if you are Scoring above 45 then start preparing for the Mains.

Unreserved  Ex-SM of HP: Approximately 80 Candidates of  This Category will qualify for the Mains, I don't think that there will be 80 person who will be competing in this category, So Cut off will remain low, If you score around 50 then start your preparation.
