Policies and Programmes. In this Study Kit they have incorporated all the major Progammes and policies into one booklet and have given gist for the same. It is must for an Civil Services aspirant, go through it.

Science, Science and Technology: Over the year this section has emerged as an important element of the General Studies Paper. It has as many as questions in all. Questions which come under this General Science section of general appreciation and understanding of science including matters of everyday observation and experience, as may be expected of a well-educated person who has not made a special study of any particular scientific discipline may understand and know.

It is not expected that candidates should have knowledge base in the science like an expect of science. A good administers should know the latest development in the field of Science and Technology i.

It has also been constitutes important role in selection. Here we should understand that this section is wrongly comprehended that if candidates has certain degree of technical aspects and concepts then only he has to solve the questions in this.

But it a myth one cannot have the background of Science could do well. The very aim of the question paper is to test the candidates awareness of the development in this field though questions were on the traditional areas science as well. If you look into the trend of previous years questions you will find that candidate should give special emphasis on of biotechnology, space technology, information technology and electronics.

Percentage of questions has increased in recent years. In prelims there were 25 questions on this section out of a total questions. This undoubtedly shows the importance of this subject. General Science basically include-Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Among these Biology contains more weightage. The syllabus broadly covers Human Anatomy and Physiography. In Physics and Chemistry, basic concepts related to combustion, optics, energy, nuclear physics, basic chemicals etc.

In Physics, almost all the questions might be application oriented. Thus, understanding of basic principles is very important. Ares like Newtons laws, heat, sound, optics etc. One must know the practical application of subject. For example, in questions asked on the principle by which a cooling system in a motor car works.

In the questions in this topic was: What is the reason? In Chemistry, important minerals and their ores, etc. Maximum questions will be pertaining to chemicals which are of economic significance. Thus characteristic of different compound like plaster of paris, bleaching powder, etc are also important. The question that came in was: Chlorination is a process used for water purification, is mainly due to?

In it was Microbial fuel are considered a source of sustainable energy. Biology, in general, has important section in science. In Botany, plant physiology, plant tissues, etc. In Zoology, human physiology,, genetics, various disease, and their control measures occupy the most important place.

Pervious questions: At present, scientists can determine the arrangement or relative positions of genes or DNA sequence on a chromose. How does this knowledge benefit us?

PRE Previous year questions analysis: Science and Technology are another major area. This generally include the application parts of the science as space technologies, IT, electronics, biotechnology, nuclear science, defence etc.

Use wikipedia extensively for the section of Science and Technology section. Daily newspaper The Hindu also published supplement on Science and Technology. Also, keep an eye on emerging technologies and recent Nobel winning technologies. General knowledge and current affairs: General Knowledge: It is not so important area as quite a few questions are being asked from this section. For this section India Year Book is one of the encyclopedia.

This is important for the prelims and for mains as well. Manorama Year book and othe such year book is also helpful. Current Affairs:. And at the interview current affairs also plays important role sometimes it decides the future of the candidates.

It all makes coverage of current affair imperative and should make as of the important ingredient of your preparations. Currrent affairs of one calendar year is sufficient. This is perhaps the most important part because if you see the trends of questions that has been asked over the years it will show you how important it is.

I recommend The Hindu and Frontilne. The Hindu has less unwanted news and has a balanced perspective on issues and is pro people. You shouldnt be an ultra leftist or a right-wing hawk. The editorials and Op-eds present a very balanced picture on issues.

Newspaper could become guide and to broaden your General Knowledge. Every day we find lots of new things in the newspaper just whenever you come across something these new in the newspaper google it up and make a note on it. Newspaper reading should be done on a daily basis without any gap until the interview is over. This is just to make sure that you have covered all the current affairs issues in News Paper. Newspaper is best to prepare for Current Affairs and General knowledge.

One has to follow at least one newspaper to keep abreast of National and International developments. It will keep your current affairs upto-date. In the new pattern of exam there is no optional subject for Prelims though we have Optionals in Mains. With the new Syllabus both the Papers are common to all candidates.

Both these papers will have equal weightage. The emphasis will be on testing the aptitude of the candidate for the demanding life in the civil service and on the ethical and moral dimensions of decision-making.

In the new format the traditional way of studying and the rote learning of concepts would no longer help to crack the exam. As of now, the change is effective only for the Preliminary Test, i. The syllabus of second Paper is to test the candidates' skills in comprehension, interpersonal skills, communication, logical reasoning, analytical ability, decision making, problem solving, basic numeracy, data interpretation, English language comprehension skills and mental ability. With the new pattern, more stress is on language skills and analysis and decision making capacities, so work on these on a consistent basis as these are skills that are developed over years and not just in a few months.

It would be advisable to start focusing on your problem solving and language skills as soon as you decide to take these exams. Comprehension 2. Interpersonal skills including communication skills; 3. Logical reasoning and analytical ability 4. Decision-making and problem solving 5. General mental ability 6. Basic numeracy numbers and their relations, orders of magnitude, etc. Class X level , 7. Data interpretation charts, graphs, tables, data sufficiency etc.

English Language Comprehension skills Class X level. Total Marks. Moreover, there are sections in the paper 2 which a candidate thinks that it is more or less like on the lines of banking or MBA but this is a mistake we should understand that the very purpose of this examination is to select Civil Servants, thats why the syllabus adds decision making and problem solving. Comprehensions bilingual had 28 questions and English comprehension had 9 questions which most almost half the paper.

Quantitive Aptitude section had 13 questions, Logical reasoning contributed 13 questions including 3 questions of syllogism and 9 questions were from data interpretation. Decision making and problem solving had 8 questions which was purely application based. Comprehension, quantitive aptitude and reasoning were the dominant section of the question paper. For better understanding we can use following table: Comprehension In terms of Comprehension Candidate needs to improve their comprehend power as comprehension consists half of the paper.

It is bilingual, hindi and English both, daily newspaper reading could keep you in safe. The paper also gave importance to testing English language skills. A comprehension exercise consists of a passage upon which questions are set to test to candidates ability to understand the content of the given text and infer information and meaning from it.

English Language Comprehension skills.

Questions relating to English Language Comprehension skills of Class X level last item in the Syllabus of Paper-II will be tested through passages from English language only without providing Hindi translation thereof in the question paper.

For doing best in comprehension one should keep few points in mind while attempting this. Firstly, read the passage thoroughly and carefully, if the meaning of the passage is not clear in very first reading then quickly go through the passage again.

The meaning of the passage should be very clear and one should understand what the writer is trying to convey. Understanding of vocabulary, rhetorical tools, hunting for the required information while keeping the holistic picture in mind, etc are essential comprehension skills at play in this area. Here we can find that paper one is helpful to solve, for instance in the the Passage section questions like inclusive growth, creative society ecosystems are the part of paper second, which is very much part of paper one.

This section tests a candidates understanding of the language that a candidate uses. Interpersonnel Skills Inter-personal skills is basically a skill of communication that entails face-to-face communication which is best tested in a Personal Interview or a Group Discussion format.

It is people skills the ability to work with and get on with other people. Questions reflecting the ability to understand and manage the dynamics of social interaction can be tested such as Fill in the Blanks, Analogy, Synonyms, Antonyms, Jumbled Paragraphs, Single word substitutions, Meaning Equivalence of sentences, etc.

Logical reasoning and analytical ability Every aptitude test has Reasoning as its one of a major component of the exam syllabus. UPSC has also included it in the syllabus. Analytical ability questions measures a candidates ability to analyze a given structure of arbitrary relationships and deduce new information from that structure.

Logical reasoning and analytical ability has as many as 13 questions, there were 4 questions on Syllogism which were slightly difficult than the usual syllogism and did require a good concentration to solve them. There were 2 questions on counting where in the first question candidate were supposed to count the number of triangles and in the second they were asked to find the missing number. There were one question on direction, three on family tree which was not as easy as it used to come.

There were 3 questions on tabulation. These questions were decently easy and requires a candidate a good amount of practice.

Rather than the reasoning is innovative in itself. This shold keep in mind while preparing for this section. You are required to solve problems related to blood relation, syllogism, sitting arrangement, series completion, coding decoding, puzzle test, logical sequence etc. Verbal and nonverbal.

Decision making and problem solving This section measures a candidates ability to take a decision based on given conditions and information. The questions generally relate to situations that require you either to take some action, or take a decision for the betterment of majority of the society.

Although Decision making and Problem Solving section had less contribution in question paper but there is difference, the questions asked in this section had no penalty for wrong answer.

All questions are purely application based. For example You are officer in charge for providing medical facilities to the survivors of an earthquakes affected area. Despite your best possible effort, people put allegations against making money out of the funds given for relief. You would. Student must attempt this section it is quite scoring and the nature of questions is also practical, one must have experience the given situation at one or another moment.

Here again paper one will help you out as the questions being asked is socio-economicpolitical in nature. There are books available in the market but as far as I am concern this books wont help in your preparation, this section have to develop by yourself.

You can also read chapters like Decision making from different books available in the market to have theoretical knowledge.

UPSC Portals book on this section would be added advantage.

General mental ability General Mental Ability is another new added new in the newly published syllabus of the Preliminary Examination. Questions can be based on Coding, Ages, Relations, Venn diagrams, sets, dices, direction sense, abstract figure, etc.

This section should be taken as seriously as it dosent require any extra knowledge or extra reading, you just need to practice as much as you can. Your aim should be to solve maximum questions with high accuracy. If we access the questions on this section in Prelims we will find that there were questions on Venn Diagram, basic counting.

As it is main component of syllabus we should take it seriously first of all main focus of the study should be at understanding the basics of the topics and then practicing those concepts through concepts. Then try to focus more and more on practicing the paper rather than merely studying. Basic numeracy It is also a major section.

This section is to check numerical proficiency of a candidate involves solving simple numerical problems. It will also include questions which require a candidate to sift through and interpret data in tabulated or graphical format. We have Basic numeracy in syllabus but there is nothing basic in questions paper, yes your basics should be clear but you should raise your level beyond the basics.

Data interpretation has charts, graphs, tables, data sufficiency etc. Break up of questions on this topics which came in the Prelims , there were a total 12 questions from this section out of which 7 questions was from basic Arithmetic which included 3 questions from Time, Speed and Distance.

There were 2 questions on Permutation and Combination etc. The approach should like this, firstly understand the basics of any topics then focus on those topics. One should never focus solving difficult problems of the topics and mugging up questions and their answers.

Permutation and Combination should be studied as well. Basic concepts from your 11th and 12th class mathematics should be very clear and you should be able to derive and apply the formulas to any given situation. If the concepts are clear you will be able to relate and then solve each problem confidently. Solving mock question papers is the easiest road to cracking any Maths paper. Dont just solve questions, solve them quickly, and keep track of them time you take to solve a question.

You will have limited time during the papers so stick to your time limit and solve mock papers within the stipulated time. Keep a stopwatch if required. Data Interpretation: Data interpretation, which covers questions based on data analysis. The data can be represented in different forms such as tables, graphs, bar diagram, line graphs, pie charts etc. It measures the numerical ability and accuracy in mathematical calculations.

The questions range from purely numeric calculations to problems of arithmetical reasoning, graph and table reading, percentage analysis and quantitative analysis.

In all, the candidate are tested for their sharpness to analyze the given data in a short span of time. In Data Sufficiency, a question is followed by two statements and you will be expected to answer whether the information provided in the statements individually or collectively is sufficient to answer the question. Taking a mock test of mathematics and general ability questions would be a good practice and help to pick out the most appropriate option.

It comes with practice. So the sooner you start practicing, the better your chances of clearing CSAT. The Civil services examination also tested the candidates' understanding of civic issues.

In the Preliminary examination of there were questions that checked the understanding of rural development schemes, fiscal stimulus, inflation and demographic dividend. In the CSAT paper only application of knowledge is required, there is nothing to mug-up. The plan and examination standards make it very demanding in nature. You are supposed to catch and collect newer information and fresh ideas whenever it comes to you.

More emphasis on understanding and analysis than memorizing This is test of the candidate's aptitude for the prestigious civil services from the ethical and moral dimension. Candidates with low moral and ethical aptitude will get weeded out. Spruce up your general awareness and mental ability.

English Price: Personality Test Interview The Mains consists of 9 tests. The first two are language tests: Each test is worth points.

These tests are at the high school level. The candidates are expected to only qualify; the score from these tests is not included in the aggregate. The Language Test is not required for candidates from the North-East. The third test is an Essay Test, worth points. The candidate can write the essay in English or in any other language included in the Eighth Schedule of the constitution.

The next two tests, each worth points, are on General Studies. The syllabus for each test is different. These tests aim to judge your awareness and well as your understanding and analysis of contemporary events. The remaining four tests, each worth points, are on two of the optional subjects chosen by the candidate.

The subject matter is consistent with the college level education. The Main Examination is the most important stage of the exam. If you are well prepared for the mains, then a good foundation for your success is made.

The risk involved with the interview can also be reduced with good performance in Main Examination. Always target the Mains Exam as this is the final path of your goal. So always aim at the Mains. The interview, worth points, is the last stage of the selection process. Nearly twice as many candidates are invited for Interview as the number of vacancies.

Quick Overview of Mains Exam: The Written Exam will consist of the following papers The written examination will consist of the following papers:. NOTE ii Evaluation of the papers, namely,'Essay, 'General Studies' and Optional Subjects of all candidates would be done simultaneously along with evaluation of their qualifying papers on 'Indian languages' and English' but the papers on 'Essay', General Studies' and 'Optional Subjects' of only such candidates will be taken cognizance of as attain such minimum standard as may be fixed by the Commission at their discretion for the qualifying papers on 'Indian language' and 'English' and, therefore, the marks in 'Essay' 'General studies and Optional subjects' will not be disclosed to those candidates who fail to obtain such minimum qualifying standard in 'Indian language and 'English'.

Customers who viewed this item also viewed

Candidates should, however, note that if they misuse the above rule, a deduction will be made on this account from the total marks otherwise accruing to them and in extreme cases, their script s will not be valued for being in an unauthorized medium.

Statistics http: Medical Science http: Mechanical Engineering http: Geology http: Chemistry http: Animal Husbandry http: Agriculture http: Public Administration http: Geography http: History http: Stage 2 The interview is the last stage of the examination. Students who have cleared the main exam are called for an interview, and their performance through the entire course of the examinations is taken into account. Most successful interviews last 45 minutes, and the aspirant is quizzed on issues concerning his or her choice of subject, bio-data, professed areas of interest, and current and emerging issues.

As is the case with the rest of the exam process, aspirants are advised to provide analysis As this stage is the final stage of the whole examination process, this stage has emerged as the most deciding phase of the exam. Interview has been termed as a deciding stage for the entire examination process, it decides your future.

Though It carries only marks but sometimes it decides in which service you get. But an Interview can make or break, so it is imperative to take it seriously.

Interview is never been the test of knowledge merely but it is the test of overall Personality for this very reason this stage is called the Personality Test. It is test of good communication skills with self-confidence; no doubt knowledge base cant be ignored.

UPSC interview questions has wider areas so it is good to prepare as many areas as you can. Question on hobbies could be expected. Questions relating to your name, your college or school name are also a big possibility. If someone resembles with your name, get ready to have question. Questions are from the situational type could be asked such as if there is situation of unrest in your district what will be your step to tackle the situation. The first step towards your success is to choose your goal honestly.

I mean you shouldnt choose Civil Services as your goal simply because your father or mother has a dream or there is a pressure from your social circle. It should come from your heart; this shouldnt be the criteria for the selection. The whole examination demands firm patience and clear determination towards goal, the whole process span in one year so it is imperative to give at least one and half-year of full time preparation with solid determination. It should clearly understand here that if any aspirants have done good and have excellent in their academics will get success in its very first attempt.

It is one sort of presumptions. But the fact is shows other story there is no any such need, it doesnt matter here at all you need not to have a splendid academic background besides you only need clear determination and firm belief that you can go through all the way.

It is rightly said The difference between possible and impossible lies in the persons determination. Selection of Optional Subjects Under the scheme of examination aspirants need two select two optional subjects in the Mains Written examination.

Earlier in the older pattern of examination aspirants had to select one optional subject in the Preliminary examination also. Selection of option subject one of the toughest nuts to crack. One can say this is door to final selection. The very much selection of the candidate is depend on this selection. Nowadays competition involved in the civil services exam has been on rising. This huddle of competition will only pass through proper planning, hard work, perseverance and patience.

Selection of optional is comes under proper planning. The selection of optional subjects must be done most carefully, if it goes wrong, everything will go in vain. In the field of this battle choosing optional is half won. Normally candidates select that optional subject in which they are familiar with, or have at least studied till graduate level.


This is not hard and fast rule anybody can select any subject from the 24 optional subjects but its better in the candidate that they should be judious while selecting optional subject. If you are not comfortable with the subject, you should not select the subject as an optional. In my opinion optional subject should be chosen on the basis of own interest in that subject and performance of subject in previous few years as scoring pattern, candidate got qualified from that optional etc.

Availability of study material in that optional will also taken into account.

download for others

Any optional subject may be evaluated on the basis of a number of parameters. These parameters are: Some candidates are chosen optional for their comparatively short, clearly defined syllabus. Availability and access of good and study material is yet another consideration. There is a vast choice of optional subject. There are 24 optional subjects available to choose for the aspirants.

Among the optional subjects History, Psychology, Sociology, Public Administration etc has been widely selected, the very reason for this is the nature of subject, any candidates those not having special or additional educational qualifications have been doing reasonably well, whereas the optional subjects like Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering are considered as tougher subjects and the candidates with exceptionally good preparation only may expect to do well.

History is one of the optional subjects which are widely selected by the aspirants. Because of the nature and resources available in the market this subject has been chosen as safe optional subject. One of the other reason that candidates select this optional because it is easy to grasp, it doesnt matter what your background is you can easily understand and do well in this optional.

Public Administration is another subject which is popular among aspirants. Public Administration can also be coupled with other optional like History or Sociology etc. This optional also covers significant areas of the General Studies papers. This optional subject does not require any previous background in the subject this is added advantage.

Philosophy is another subject that may be taken with other humanities subjects. This subject maybe coupled with Political Science or Sociology as there are several similarities between them. It is also very useful for the essay papers. The subject has been considered as scoring one and also requires no previous background. Geography is another optional that is open to candidates from varied academic backgrounds. The nature of the optional is objective - with its tables and maps it makes it highly scoring.

However in the past Economics has helped some students topped the rank list. However care should be taken while selecting this subject. One subject is Sociology, which is very useful in the "social issues" section of the General Studies paper and in answering essay questions. However, it is believes that the primary criteria should not be the nature of the subject or whether it is comprehended as scoring or not. Student interest in the subject should be given predominant importance.

It should be correctly understood that any optional can be scoring if the student approaches it strategically and systematically. Selection of Medium of Exam Aspirants need to select as their medium of instruction for the Mains examination.

Selection of medium should be done with your interest instead in the fashion. It is seen that some candidates select medium as others are getting selection in that particular medium, this should not be done. You should chose your medium that suits you best and you can express your views better than other medium.

Aspirants should keep in mind that medium plays key role in the final selection, and with the new syllabus it proved. In the new syllabus of Prelims English medium candidates must feel safe in Prelims Paper two instead of Hindi medium candidates. But its not worry for them a little effort can make for the hindi medium candidate.

They should brush up their English before opting hindi as a medium of language. Importance of General Studies General Studies is one of the subjects which have major contribution in the whole examination, in the Prelims there is one whole Paper of General Studies and in the Mains it has its contribution. In this way general studies cant be underestimate it leads you to the final selection.

Though Optional subject also has its importance but at the same time General Studies has its own contribution. So General Studies should be prepared in well.

Taking Your First Attempt It is seen among aspirants that they are in hurray to take their first attempt. But its not good strategy at all do not hurry in taking your first attempt. Take your first attempt as your first and last attempt and only when then you feel that you are ready to come into the battlefield of exam because once you are trapped in virulent circle of examinations, little time remains available for improvisation.

Taking Your Further Attempts Prepare yourself as there is no need for any further attempt. Even then somehow you could not get selected then think before taking your further attempt. Assess yourself well before taking your further attempt ff you has done well in the previous attempt its good, you only need to maintain your tempo.

But, if you have not performed well then it is better to quit one or two attempts and dont take your further attempt unless you are ready for the attempt. Hard Work It is proved fact that there is no shortcut in life and it is hard work that works for us. Sometimes at the initial stage it wont work but at the end of day it will led you to the success. We should always keep in mind that hard work never goes unrewarded.

Hard work has no any substitute. Its you who could finish the whole work by yourself, nobody is coming with you. Entire course of action have to complete by you. Civil service competition is the best example of hard work.

If you work hard you will get through if not you wont make it the first huddle i. Prelims exam. The examination that you are preparing for is like a marathon race.

You have to pass in this exam of marathon, definitely you have to start you journey from square one at several time. The candidates who are taking civil services exam are well educated and have talent to lead the country but over the years it has been revealed that only 50 percent of the total candidate are the serious ones. Here we should keep in mind that those aspirants who has the confidence that he can compete in this examination and succeed, only they are going to finally crack it.

If we see the statistics among the 50 per cent of the serious candidates, merely 20 per cent are hard workers, and the real fight is between them.

The number of vacancies are not stable it is changing year by year but nowadays vacancies are around posts in all. So, to come in the , one has to put the real hard work, unique way of writing skills, above all better than the other aspirants.

Hard work can be termed as one of the pre-requisite for every sphere in life and in the Civil services exam it is indispensable. Dedication For me Dedication is sometimes doing things even if I didn't have to and doing it with passion. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember dedication towards our own duty always pays in life.

One has to be totally dedicated even for the minutest things in the life, finally its it which finally get you all along the long way. Yes dedication always bundled with sacrifice. During you course of your preparation you have to sacrifice many of your favorites like movies, parties, and entertainments etc. Without dedication it is impossible to achieve what you want to be.

Patience One famous quote is that "Good things come to those who wait. If one needs favorable result it has to come with the patience. Take civil service exam it spans a year Preliminary exam in the month of may-june to the interview in the month of march next year.

The whole process of exam requires patience. During your preparation at many times you may feel tired and jaded but it is the time when you have to keep you going. Once you stop there are many others who are waiting to take you place. The Civil service exam in one way is the psychometric test for the aspirants it is test for their patience also.

In all to keep going when the going is hard and slow - that is patience. Self-Confidence The secret of making dreams come true can be summarized in four Cs.

WaltDisney Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings. It is self confidence that makes the difference. It doesnt matter how hard you try and work hard unless you don't believe in yourself and your ability to succeed. One should always keep ones self confidence at the high level, yes everyone agrees that one can never be always self motivated and could lose temper, at this time you need to keep motivated it dosent matter by which means.

But at one instance we all belive that there is almighty who is above us. Which is why we started this page. A page for you. A page for a better nation.
