UPSC Prelims Exam 2017- GS Paper 1 Analysis

The day of adrenaline pumping and mental stress had come to an end for you aspirants. Hope You have all performed well in the Preliminary exam. It is time we analyse the nature of the prelims question papers. Here, we - CHRONICLE IAS team - will discuss about General Studies Paper I.


Compared with the GS paper I of 2016, UPSC this time around followed the same pattern. Majority of the questions were from current affairs. Those who are abreast with the daily happenings via news paper reading are bound to score well.


Similarly, this year too UPSC had asked standard questions from segments like Polity and History which are rather easy to answer if you have gone through any standard books. But, questions from culture segment appeared to be somewhat difficult which have the potential to make you commit mistakes.


As always questions from map pointing were asked from Geography. Economics questions too were a bit easy to answer if one applies some logic while answering. In Science and Technology segment too, questions were of general awareness type, but, one has to notice that the issues picked by the Commission were not of recent happenings but are a year old. This too is a repetition of what happened in 2016 prelims.


While decoding the pattern of UPSC, two years in a row it has asked questions from far and wide, both conceptually and time period wise that is picking topics that are older than a year before the commencement of Preliminary exam. If the same continues, we can expect a paper of similar kind in 2018 too.


Now, don’t waste your time by waiting for the results. Start your preparation for Mains no matter what the outcome of Prelims would be. All the Best.
