  • STUDENTS ****

    We are aware that a lot of people are getting low scores in Prelims this year. Let us point to you a few facts.

    First, there is no one this year who is claiming a score of 130-140
    Those who used to get 140+ in Prelims till last year are not getting more than 120 this year.
    The candidates who used to get 110-120 till last year, are getting the range of 95-105. Please do not believe us. Ask in your friend circle once. Dont ask Forum friends, ask real friends.

    Old Timers are not getting top scores, and the paper was not such that first timers will get super duper score either. So you can expect the cut off to be in the range of 90-95 subject to how many candidates UPSC takes for Mains. 

    Note that UPSC did not increase the seats to 15000 for Mains even when the vacancies were at an all time high.
    We urge all students to start Mains Preparation at the earliest and do not make the annual mistake of waiting for result. You must be aware that anyway a lot of people will be out ( if not actually then at least mentally ) because the nature of paper, and the successful ones will be the ones who are able to capitalise on this opportunity.

    Last year the paper was on the easier side and most people were expecting the cut off to be around 110, but it came to be 105.

    And first timers, please start preparing for Mains. World History and Post Independence itself will eat away all your time – nearly the full month. There are large parts of the syllabus which you are unaware of and are largely untouched.

    Also, god forbid, if you miss the cut off and if you decide to only study for 3 months a year - only - before Prelims, then it will take 4 years to clear the exam.

    People clear Prelims because they clear Prelims – and study all throughout the year as they write Mains, Interview etc. It takes 10-12 months to prepare for UPSC. Please do not make it 3 months/ year before Prelims and extend your preparation to multiple years.You must study all throughout the year.

    Please do not mourne p
