Paper I (General Studies) gains prominence

The change in pattern of Preliminary Examination has transformed the way you look at General Studies. You need to alter your strategy for the first stage of the examination to crack the Prelims.

With new changes, now, Paper I which actually is General Studies as known earlier is going to get due respect and importance it always deserved.

Earlier, candidates with excellent preparation in his/her subject were able to make it in Preliminary Examination despite average preparation in General Studies.

Now, the rule of the game is going to change at the first stage of examination. If you look at the outgoing pattern, the candidates were focused more on the optional paper which had higher weightage (300 marks) and with a little less attention on General Studies (150 marks) with aim to get average score which safely can take them to next level.

The changes introduced in CS Prelims has made all beliefs and subject-dominated behaviours obsolete and known Prelims-crackers are finding it difficult to figure out the strategies required to counter the emerging challenges.

The Paper I should play the vital role in succeeding at Prelims level as the weigthage (200 Marks) has increased and it would be relatively easier to comprehend as you are aware of the examiner’s expectations and can read the trend.
