Exam of APFC was typical UPSC type exam.Pattern was strictly followed as per the syllabus and almost all the topics were covered. Some of the question asked from the Banking and PF areas. You may have look at few of the question asked in APFC 2012@indianexamforum.
There are different views on the level of question paper of APFC by candidates. Few candidates found it average type where as maximum of candidates believe that the paper was very tough and cutoff will not go much.
What I believe that the toughness of Provident Fund Commissioner in EPFO written test depends on the level of preparation. Those candidates who prepare for the exam after keeping syllabus in front of them, they have done better in the exam. Question were totally from the syllabus.
There were maximum number candidates who already working somewhere and doesn’t get much time to prepare, where as we also have found many candidates who prepared for UPSC IAS exam and appear for APFC.
Depend on the candidates views for the exam, We expect that the paper of exam was little above average and cutoff will be as like the UPSC prelims. We expect candidates to share their expected marks of the exam so that we would analyze and find out the exact cutoff for APFC Exam by UPSC.
