The UPSC Prelims exam will be held on 18th June 2017.Lakhs of IAS hopefuls will take it and hope to clear it and make it to the UPSC mains exam in October this year. The IAS prelims exam consists of two objective papers:

  1. General Studies Paper I
  2. General Studies Paper II (CSAT)

Both the papers are of 200 marks each. They both carry negative marks for incorrect answers. Candidates have to score a minimum of 33% in the CSAT paper. Only the marks of the GS paper I will be counted for the prelims ranking.

While preparing for the IAS prelims, a candidate should know that there are certain things he/she should avoid reading or studying. A candidate should not waste tome reading this type of information. We give you a list of such unwanted topics:

  2. Business news not related to the UPSC syllabus.
  3. Avoid criminal news even if it is capturing headlines.
  4. Don’t read small and irrelevant regional/state/local news. Only read national news.
  5. Avoid Bollywood and other entertainment news. They have zero UPSC value.
  6. Don’t read the names of the presidents/prime ministers/currencies of all the countries in the world. Study only prominent names and those that are creating relevant news.
  7. In field of sports, art and science, learn a few names which have been in the news recently (example, if somebody has got a prominent award from the central government).
  8. For the prelims give only less focus on ancient and medieval Indian history (don’t ignore completely but your first priority must be to finish the freedom struggle portions).
