A dedicated portal for UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Examination

Dear Civil Services Aspirants,

The Civil Services Preliminary Exam, 2017 held on 18th June, 2017, was quite a balanced exam in terms of questions between traditional topics and current affairs/international affairs. The three major topics i.e, Indian Polity/Governance (24%), Economics/Indian Economy/India Year Book (22%) and International Affairs/Current Affairs (18%) covered almost 64% of the questions. Quite a few questions were analytical also which required some analysis and decision making. Overall the test was slightly difficult than previous year's tests.

For Preliminary Exam 2017 PrelimsModelTests had provided 120 Tests out of which 30 Tests were created afresh and consisted of questions on current affairs/international affairs. More than 50% questions were directly or indirectly from thesse 120 tests.

Now, that the trend of the UPSC Prelims is quite stable since the past three years with questions being asked both from the traditional topics and the current affairs/international affiars, PrelimModelTests will be prividing Test Series in two formats:

There has been significant increase in the questions on current affairs/international affairs with special focus on Governmet's Policies since 2015.

This is the same trend of the UPSC Prelims exam as it was prior to 2009. Till 2008 maximum questions were from current national and international affairs and since 2009 the trend had changed focussing on traditional topics rather than current affiars.

The Paper II of the Civil Services Preliminary Exam consisting of 80 Questions is a mixed lot on Comprehension, General Mental Ability, Logical reasoning, Analytical Ability, Data Interpretation and Basic Arithmetic. Now, more and more questions are being asked on Passage Reading and English Comprehension.
