Marking Pattern

What is the Average Marking UPSC? For Average should we expect 50% in GS and 60% in Optional [As scaling of Marks in Optional is High this days]

  • 50%in GS =500/1000
    60% in optional=300/500

    Yes you can safely assume 800 marks for average student and average marking system..

    Don't forget that you are too kind that you didn't add your essay marks as of now and still you are getting 800 marks..too low marks as per your standard :smile:
