Paper Is Comparitively Tougher Than Previous 5 Year Pre-Papers
Important Conclusions Can Be Drawn From The Trend
- PAPER IS SLIGHTLY SHIFTING TOWARDS FACTS THAN THE CONCEPTUAL WISE ANALYSIS
- History becoming a hard nut to crack., The questions on History were beyond expectations,
- As per the experts, General Studies, or GS Paper-I, most of the questions were from Current Affairs [ over 50], Geography and Environment.
- Traditional topics like Polity were not difficult and relatively easy. While History gave a huge surprise as many questions were asked and were quite difficult. Hence breaking the previous year’s trend.
- From Economics some questions such as on Money Multiplier and Poverty Line required applied knowledge of students.
- Conceptual questions were difficult as options were close to each other making guesswork quite difficult.
- The dominance of environment-based questions ebbed as this year we saw around 15 environment-based questions.
- So, the questions were better distributed across topics and subtopics. This played a positive role as candidates were not rewarded or punished based on his/her individual strength or weaknesses.
