Know more about UPSC Civil Services Exam Previous Year Question Papers

Competitive examinations are held by the government and semi-government. Clearing this exam ensures and secures your government job. This examination is arranged so as to check the aptitude and eligibility to get into particular government posts.

The subjects that are covered in these examinations are generally: General Knowledge, English Language Paper, and one paper which is specific to the area or the field that is chosen by the candidate for his career.

Civil service aptitude test will consist of two objective question papers carrying equal marks. All students from any educational background will face the same questions in CSAT with Special Emphasis on Testing Aptitude & Decision-Making Ability. Also some IAS exam eligibility criterions could be changed, for e.g. the age limit and the number of attempts could be lowered and younger students with a good zeal could be given preference in the interview. The following Types of questions will be asked in CSAT-

Current Affairs from National and International Events,
Logical Reasoning and Decision Making,
Elementary Mathematics,
Quantitative Ability,
Data Interpretation from Graphic and Chart

This new pattern is good for candidates of science background because they don't prefer the questions from history and political science etc. On the other hand, the art subjects' candidates (mainly history, geography and political science) may get affected badly from this pattern. Thus UPSC should also take care of the art subjects' students.

The new pattern for Civil service examination will bring all the candidates from any educational background under the same roof. The importance of general awareness has now increased many folds and will be a deciding factor in selection of candidates. The questions will be more situations oriented and analytical, testing the mental ability of the candidate.

Thus it's time for an all new approach towards the reputed and most competitive exam of the country. As the previous toppers say that it's not about trying to overcome the expectations of UPSC. That is not possible in real sense, but all that is required is analyzing the intensity of competition among the aspirants and then planning to get one step ahead from them. All the candidates are now being brought under the same horizon and the candidate who will understand the requirements of this new pattern and will adopt for it as soon as possible, will get an edge over the other candidates.
