Civil Services (Pre.) Exam 2015 General Studies GS Paper - I Analysis 23rd August

Civil Services (Pre.) Exam 2015 General Studies Paper - I Analysis

The 2015 CSP GS Paper 1 was easier in comparison to the 2014 GS Paper - I. The order of weightage to the various sections was as follows : Economy, Geography, Ecology & Environment, Polity and History. The questions from these topics constituted almost 75 % of the paper. Economy in itself constituted 20 % of the paper. A significant and major departure from the norm was seen in the type of questions. The number of single statement/choice based question have increased bringing down the overall difficulty level. As many as 56 questions were of this type. Another peculiar shift has been that unlike the previous years’ papers, this year current events also found place in the paper. Questions from Art & Culture have been reducing in number over the last four years. The same was the case this year too. The questions were basic and tested the candidate’s basic understanding of general studies. As compared to last year, more sitters were there in the paper. There were 48-50 questions that were easy and could have been easily attempted by any student. The overall difficulty level of questions could be termed moderate. There was a preponderance of fact-based questions this year which was not the case during previous years. This again highlighted the importance of studying basic textbooks thoroughly, particularly NCERT books of Class 6 onwards. Detailed analysis is given in the table given below:
