Mrunal's Win22 Series for Economy Updates for UPSC Prelims & Mains 2022

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.

  1. sir dont you think csat shud be qualifyin?? thrs no sectional cutt off…CAT students score 160 ,170 in ppr 2…ppl frm othr backgrnds hav to suffr…

    1. we all think beta….but not in our hands… learn maths and reasoning fast… then you can also score 160,170 in paper 2

      1. Maximum part of CSAT P II is the comprehension which are related to P I, hence you can score atleast 140+ without any problem. Kindly note that, CAT students cleared Pre with the help of P II give ‘ZERO’ competition in mains. That’s the reason marks in main are gradually reducing. So don’t worry. Best of luck.

      2. Kal ko engg wale bole ki gs hata do koi use nahi hai. Aur aise hi upsc ko bhi khatam kar do. Bhaiya all qualities are necessary for being an IAS so dont blame upsc and b strong.

  2. If Mr UPSC Chairman is reading this, please remove aptitude portion or atleast make a cut off of 50% of maximum marks in paper 1.

      1. काली बेटा,
        मैं upsc का चेयरमैन हु। घबराओ नहीं तुम्हारे लिए कुछ अलग व्यवस्था करता हु।
        तुम दोनों पेपर में केवल 25% लाना, कर दूंगा तुम्हारा। तुमने मेरा नाम तो लिया यही बहुत हैं मेरे लिए।
        वरना कहा आजकल सब मेरे जाने की राह देख रहे हैं।

        केवल तुम्हारा
        अपना…
        UPSC का चेयर मैन

  3. official clarification is come out. but changed syllabus circulated in orkut also on cards of upsc. dopt rejects that. i saw new syllabus of telugu litt…which i got by a north indian through orkut….wheather u trust that or not it is 100 percent new syllabus….i got new syllabus by north indian within minutes. is this possible to get syllabus within minutes of syllabus change news spreading through orkut …that too new syllabus does not replicate any andhra state service exam…becoz in ap telugu litt ..optional is not there…in case of junior lecturer,degree lecturer posts ,ugc net, telugu pandit courses syllabus was entirely different format also different.

  4. if upsc try to introduce new syllabus for literature optionals….it will face strong protests through out india…because new syllabi which is circulated in orkut is not 10-20 percent new/extention…it is 90 percent new syllabus that too extention upto pg level.

  5. This is not good for healthy democracy. If coaching institute spread s such type of rumours then what would do a genuine candidate. Thanks to UPSC who unveil the curtain.

    1. if civil service aspirants give credence to rumours without questioning if it is an official declaration
      by upsc, do you think they deserve to get into civil service…..??

  6. These coaching vala always prepare some masala and something hatke that attracts attention of new comers and leads to misguidence.
    Its ridiculous and must be avoided.

  7. Can anyone please the tell the interpretation of consequential age relaxation ? Does it signify Age relaxation for coming two years only .. Or is it like a thumb rule .. For all the coming years .. Plz confirm

      1. Thanks karthi.. Just to Croscheck.. Plz confirm again ..now i am 28 and it’s my second attempt .. So it means I will not be eligible at the age of 32 .. In 2018 ? For me age remains 30 yrs only .. ?

        1. Saira… it’s like this — the age and attempt criteria have been revised to mean maximum age limit – 32 and attempt 6 in case of general candidates…. doesn’t matter which year you complete your 32 in…. 32 years or 6 attempt whichever criterion is attained —- you are not allowed until then you can go for it…… Now if they decide to revise the criteria again it’ whole another issue….

        2. Saira you are 28 and you can easily clear it in the same year you do not need to worry or think over 6 attempts to clear the examination.
          Be motivated and work hard to make it in the 2nd attempt itself

          1. Thnks asheesh.. But m a working professional .. N not covered the whole syllabus for 2014.So targeting UPSC 2015 .. Which will be my last attempt .. So becomes very imp to know the actual scenario .. Mrunal sir .. Plz confirm for this consequential word and it’s implication .. It’s hell confusing for many ..

    1. UPSC Notification is delayed for this very reason.
      please wait for the notification for further clarification.

  8. Thank u sir ! Will u pls give us time table that we cover all subject of prelims in 3 months.

  9. @ MRUNAL SIR,… sir wat about IFoS ??? remain unchange??? high cuttoff approx…260-270………….dam sitt!!!!!!!!

  10. Can anyone please tell me whether the online form for CSP 2014 is already out or not? I seem to find vague statements on the net confirming that we can start filling the forms but there is obviously no link on the official UPSC website yet. Anyone?

  11. Can anyone please tell me whether the online form is released for filling or not? I seem to find vague statements on the net that the forms can be filled online but there is obviously no link on the official UPSC website yet. Anyone?

  12. Hello sir, thanks a lot for your regular support. Please elobrtae point 3. CSAT remains the same. Marking / weightage between GS and Aptitude remains the same. Is there different weightage for paper I & paper II or it is toal marks consider to qualify for mains? Is there any cut off for both the papers?

  13. 1 question regarding the age releaxtion-

    The notif said that for general cat- 2 extra attempts with “consequential” age relaxation “if required”

    I am in General category – Age- 23 years at present and have never given civil service exams.

    Sir, I have a doubt regarding the above notif.

    1.As I have never given civil serv exams till now, so from age 24 to age 30 : I can cover all the 6 attempts (4+2). In that scenario – will my age limit of exams will be 30 years or 32 years ?? Please advise on this…

    i.e. will the age relaxation applicable to those only who are above 26 and hence for 6 attempt they will be requiring age limit of 32 years….or they are for every one – even if The person is of 21 years (gen cat) [as in this case he can easily give all the exam attempts(6) by the age of 32]

    1. one correction in last line –

      even if The person is of 21 years (gen cat) [as in this case he can easily give all the exam attempts(6) by the age of “30”]

  14. my doubt is whether really the news was about format change of d xam or nature of xam i dnt tnk the delhi coaching waalon ka news is fake coz press release states der wont b significnt changes in format n syllabi of xam but der mte b change in the nature of xam,so paper 2 mte b oly qualifyng in nature

  15. Sir I am fortunate, that your guidance are available, at every step of preparation, else being working it would be difficult, and for candidate like us, who are unable to spend lakh of Rs in Delhi Coaching. Thankyou for your initiatives

  16. Since m new to this can any one tell me that in prelims do the total score in both paper together is counted fr qualifying to mains or individual score in both…..? Anyone????

  17. Only what UPSC says via RTI and press notes= that’s the final version.

    iss baat ko sabhi aspirants ko samajhna chhaiye bekar mein time waste karne ka koi fayda nahi.

    All the Best Aspirants :)

  18. Rumours are never to be answered, my sincere advice to all cse aspirants and thus, avoid wasting the most precious resource “time”

  19. z thr ny bdy ifos aspiraint at delhi nr mukherji nagar…..lets discuss n exchnge sm tipz !!! contact plzzz

  20. @ mrunal sir…plz write an article exclusively for CSAT preparation…………………….plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  21. sir plz tell me that kya exam pattern m koi change nhi aaya h na means optional to rahega na and one more thing sir pre. exam qualify krne k liye kya study kr lu plz tell me reply fast

  22. 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.
