Prologue- Mains result out after a month’s delay

In the 2019 Civil Service exam,  it took Union Public Service Commission (UPSC)…..

  • 40 days to declare the prelims result. (Exam conducted on 2nd June and result delivered on 12th July, 2019)
  • 116 days to declare the mains result (Exam conducted on 20th September, 2019  onwards and result declared on 14th January 2020).
  • In 2018 exam cycle, UPSC had declared the mains result within 83 days of conducting the exam (Exam conducted on 28 September 2018 and result was declared on 20th December 2018).
  • That means 2019’s Mains result was delayed by More than a month (33 days) compared to 2018.

Free (offline) mock interview by Mrunal & Unacademy

  • In the UPSC mains exam, each of the general studies, essay and optional subject paper consists of 250 marks, whereas the interview consists of 275 marks
  • In the last 3 years the spread of mark between Mains + Interview has become such that,  even with the difference of 20 to 30 marks in the interview (Personality Test) you are completely out of the consideration from top 3 services IAS/IPS/IFS.
  • And you cannot cover up that gap through (hoping to secure) more marks in the mains exam (क्योंकि बाकी टककर के उम्मीदवारों ने वहां पर आप के आसपास ही  मार्क हासिल किए होते हैं. अगर कोई ऐसी गलतफहमी रखता है कि उसको इंटरव्यू में थोड़ी कम भी मार्क्स मिल जाए तो वह मुख्य परीक्षा के मार्क्स के दम पर आईएएस बन जाएगा तो वह संभव नहीं है. हां एक जमाने में ऐसा हो जाता था लेकिन पिछले 3 सालों से यूपीएससी ने marking pattern थोड़ा कड़क कर दिया है)
