IAS Previous Year Question Papers

IAS Previous Year Papers

The UPSC Civil Services exam is the holy grail of competitive examinations in India. Every youngster aspires to make to the elite club of bureaucrats in the country at some point or the other and a sizeable majority takes the plunge to work toward making this dream a reality. What follows is often a long, arduous journey of hard work and challenges. Not only is the UPSC Civil Services examination the most difficult competitive to crack, but also one with unparalleled competition. With the difficultly level of the examination pitched at the zenith and lakhs of aspirants vying for a few hundred openings, the odds are really high. To make the cut, you need more than just intelligence and hard work. Having a sound preparation strategy in place and seeing its implementation through to the finish line is crucial for success. And that’s where UPSC IAS previous year papers play an important role.

UPSC Civil Service Exam Pattern

To be able to make the most of civil services exam question papers, a candidate must be well-versed with the exam pattern. This helps in understanding how different questions must be approached during these practice attempts, and ultimately, contributes toward a proficient performance in the exam.
The UPSC IAS Civil Service examination is divided in three phases – preliminary, main and personality test. The prelims is further divided into two papers – General Ability test (GAT) and Civil Service Aptitude Test (CSAT) – both objective-type in nature and carrying 400 marks each. This is a qualifying exam for the mains. Except for the English Language Comprehension section, questions for the both the exams are set in English as well as Hindi.
The main examination also comprises two types of tests – qualifying and merit forming. The qualifying examination consists of two language exams – English and another language of candidate’s choice. The second exam is divided into seven papers, each carrying about 300 questions in both objective and easy writing formats. The total score in all these papers is taken into consideration, along with the personality test score, for the final ranking.

The Right Approach to Solving UPSC IAS Previous Year Papers

Whether you are sitting down to attempt your first set of CSAT previous year question papers or have been consistently working with IAS past year papers, it is important to bear in mind that attempting a 100 per cent of the questions with utmost certainty is almost unrealistic. No matter how well-versed you are with the study material, there will always be more than a few questions that will throw you off your game. The key is to not let these small stumbling blocks get in your way and stay focussed on finishing civil services exam question papers with the maximum possible right answers.

For this you can adopt a two-pronged approach:

  • (a) Go With What You Know
  • Start with questions related to subjects you know well.
  • Read every question in the UPSC IAS previous year papers carefully to make sure you fully understand what is being asked.
  • Tick all the questions to which you know the answer with certainty.
  • Count and see if these questions are enough to get you past the cut-off. This will help put your mind at ease. Start attempting these as quickly as you can.
  • (b) Eliminate What You Don’t Know
  • Circle the question on which have a reasonable doubt and leave out the ones you are complete clueless about.
  • Now, comes the point of taking calculated risks by way of making an informed guess.
  • Read the question carefully and instead of looking for the right answer, eliminate the options you are sure cannot be the right answer.
  • From among the choices left with you, mark the one that you feel most confident about in your gut.
  • Try doing this for all IAS past year papers attempts and you will get a hang of arriving at the right answer by way to elimination when the day of the exam arrives.

Benefits of Attempting UPSC IAS Past Year Papers

You cannot possibly over prepare for an examination as challenging as the UPSC civil services. Every bit of effort you channelize toward your preparation counts, and solving as many UPSC IAS previous year papers as you can lay your hands on is a part of that process. Here is how you stand to benefit from it:
  • You get to know what speed you need to maintain to finish the entire paper.
  • It helps with time management techniques.
  • You gain an insight into what type of questions are repeated year after year. It helps you differentiate between what portions of the IAS syllabus to focus on, which ones to skim through and which ones to overlook.
  • Your performance in IAS past year papers helps adjust the focus on your revisions.
