A dedicated portal for UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Examination

The Civil Services Preliminary Exam, 2020 held on 04th October, 2020, was quite similar to 2019 exam in terms of questions between traditional topics and current affairs/international affairs. The four major topics namely 1. Economics/Indian Economy/India Year Book (22 questions), 2. General Science including Agro Science (21 questions), 3. Indian Polity/Governance(17 questions) and 4. Geography including Environmental Ecology(16 questions) had a total of 76 questions. The rest covered the balance 24 questions. Quite a few questions were analytical also which required some analysis and decision making. Quite a few questions were asked in round about manner rather than in a simple way. Overall the test was slightly difficult than previous year's tests.

Although the distribution pattern changes every year. This year there were only 8 questions from Indian National Movement and only 11 from Indian History/Indian Art and Culture. Questions on International Affairs/Current Affairs were also only 5.

The distribution of the questions of Paper I of the Civil Services Preliminary Exam since the introduction of the new syllabus in 2011 has been analysed as follows:
