A dedicated portal for UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Examination

Dear Civil Services Aspirants,

The Civil Services Preliminary Exam, 2016 held on 7th August, 2016, was a complete change in trend of Prelims exam as the traditional topics had very less questions and maximum questions were from the India Year Book consisting of the various new policies of the Government and various current international afairs.

For Preliminary Exam 2016, 90 Tests of Paper I were provided in which 20 (Test 71 to Test 90) new Tests were added. The Test 71 to 88 consisted of 50 Questions on traditional topics and 50 questions on current national and interrnational affairs with Test 89 and 90 being completely on current topics.

The Test Series of Prelims Model Tests have been prepared after thorough research of UPSC's methodology and pattern of Questions. This is evident by the fact that more than 80% of the Questions of Paper I were covered directly by the questions of the test series or indirectly through the detailed solutions in the 90 Tests provided by Prelims Model Tests.

Similarly the 70 Tests of Paper II covered all the types of varied Questions asked in the exam like Comprehension, General Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, Numerical Ability, Graph Interpretation, Verbal Logic, Non Verbal Logic, Simple Arithmetic etc.

For 2017 UPSC Preliminary Exam PrelimsModelTests will be providing Test Series consisting of 120 Full Length Tests of Paper I (30 additional tests). As usual the Online Tests can be taken any number of time via Userrname and Password and the detailed solution can be Downloaded in Pdf format on your computer.

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:

International Affairs/Current Affairs000000042541

There has been significant increase in the questions on international affairs/current affairs this year.

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 and Basic Arithmetic.

Now that the Civil Services Examination Rules 2015 has made Paper II as a qualifying exam with minimum 33% marks, the Paper II tests are being discontinued.
