ANNOUNCEMENT : Prelims 2019 Select Focus Group (SFG) Commencement Date, Entrance Test and Other Details

Irrational move to make CSAT qualifying in 2015 & selection based on One GS paper, 2 hrs guess-game!

In 2015, CSAT paper was made qualifying, just to appease a section of students having agitational skills. The protests which eventually led to removal of CSAT was organised and led by certain Coaching institutes, who were unable to adapt to Aptitude test.

The prelims pattern since 2015 with CSAT Qualifying, came as an ad-hoc arrangement not supported by any expert committee. Later this decision (which was not supported by committee expertise but brought about under pressure & agitations) was made permanent without studying its negative effects which are very clear now.

The prelim pattern since 2015 has led to heavy crowding effect around cut-off marks and selection of candidates based on one paper performance. Thus UPSC prelims has become a mere gambling where thousands of non-serious candidates get through by indulging in wild guessing (Tukka).

Hence, instead of one paper, UPSC prelims should have two papers & more number of questions to screen out non-serious candidates, as compared to only 100 questions & a mere 2 hours of general studies paper to evaluate candidate's suitability to face mains examination.

    Only mass protests on the lines of csat removal movement will succeed. These messages and petitions or contact with politicians won't work.
  • We need division of syllabus into 2 paper ,not a bank paper with paper 1.
  • Its a phenomenon since 2015.. A vague GS paper from 2011-2014 was compensated by CSAT then..

    more than 50000-60000 ppl scoring 90-100 now(hoping prelims success) will get shock of life around 15 july.. (bcoz afterall only some 4300-4400 general candidates will sail through to mains this yr)..

    this paper is an absolute irrationality.. newcomers with half learning, half tukka are all 95+.. those who saying veterans here/there are scoring 106,102 are forgetting that this is not a feudal landlordism system but a competitive meritocratic system where past credential is irrelevant for next year..
