What is the cut off for soir?

What time does apres-midi change to soir?  When I was in West Africa and Haiti it was anytime after 12 noon, but I got those answers wrong.  I did not see a definition in the lesson.  Thanks :)

There isn't a set cut-off time but 6 pm sounds about right.

As I look at the page myself it looks like it starts at 6pm. But I am a beginner also so dont quote me yet.
