India Yearbook

Copy pasting UPSC’s official pressnote uploaded on their official website today (May-23-2014)

  1. There are no other changes in the format and syllabi of papers contained in the Civil Services Examination.
  2. except one- that  Government has decided to allow two additional attempts with consequential age relaxations to all categories of candidates w.e.f Civil Services Examination, 2014. (We already know these details, click me)
  3. Notification will come on 31st May 2014, Saturday.
  4. Candidates can apply online (as usual)

Ref: http://upsc.gov.in/exams/notifications/2014/csp/press%20note.pdf
In other words,

  1. optionals subjects are not removed
  2. optional subject syllabus is not changed
  3. CSAT remains the same. Marking / weightage between GS and Aptitude remains the same.
  4. Non-literature candidates can also pick literature optional.
  5. Marks scored in prelim (CSAT) exam will not be counted in final job merit list. They’ll be only counted for selecting candidates to mains exam.
  6. There will be no “Constitutional law” or any fifth GS paper in the mains exam.
  7. Delhi’s coachingwalla are kindly requested to remove that FAKE Syllabus from their notice boards and stop misguiding the aspirants by claiming they’ve “insider” sources.
  8. Orkut members are requested not to give free publicity to Element #7.
  9. Non-Delhi candidates are kindly requested not to lose sleep over what Element #7 or #8 says. Only what UPSC says via RTI and press notes= that’s the final version.

One can come up with many conspiracy theories. Here is one for the sake of fun- In the movie Mission Impossible #1, the HQ releases a fake file to find  the mole within their spy organization, who’d try to sell it to the bad guys. Same way, I think UPSC Chairman DP Agrawal deliberately circulated different versions of fake syllabus within office, to find out which one reaches Delhi’s coaching-bazar, that way “mole” can be traced hahaha.

  9. caligula

    fact of matter is you should be ready for 6 subjects 1)Economics(with current affair) 2)Environment(with current affair) 3)Indian Polity 4)Geography 5)History 6) S&T (with current affair) , before 1 month of prelims. If you succeed in this, any change in syllabus won’t harm your preparation. If you have given attempt in past, try to live the moment when you flunked. You will know what is utmost important.

  19. Delhi Commercial Coaching Center Review...

    Spcially for 2015 aspirants , I suggest if u go for Rajendra nagar Coaching Institute , den better dont go for SRIRAM IAS. This institute is just money making machine ~ RS 1,10,000 for GS subject.
    The Guy just finished our ethics Paper -4 (250 marks ) in 2-3 days and essay(250 marks) in 1 day. Better go for Vajiram & Ravi as these guys give authentic study material and coaching + Test series @ same fees or ALS.

    1. amit

      dont choose als also . only vajiram is best of all. i have had the experience of als and left the classes in between and got the fees refunded on the pretext that i have got the job and joining is few days . and then joined vajiram . its a good coaching for g.s,

    1. Aman

  27. ABCD

    I have a question. The memo says “decided to allow
    two additional attempts with consequential age relaxations to all
    categories of candidates w.e.f Civil Services Examination, 2014.” There are two scenarios: Scenario A: A person is 31 say and has not appeared once in the CSE. Scenario B: The candidate is 31 and has exhausted all 4 attempts.

    Now consequential age relaxation means it is applicable only for Scenario B. Does it apply to scenario A also??

    Regards
