UPSC Exam 2011

Getting a job in the civil services cadre is not only a huge dream, but also an honorable vision for any Indian citizen! The UPSC is fulfilling such dreams of its people, via its new scheme of exams, namely the CSAT.

The UPSC is said to reform the civil services examinations with many changes that are expected to be dynamic and are suggested to enhance the features of the existing system with an ultimate objective of recruiting ethical professionals, rather ending up in selecting professionals who are in turn good with subject knowledge, but alien to moral and ethical values!

Features

  • The CSAT syllabus are said to have more emphasis on the ‘Moral and Ethical’ values.
  • It is also said that the interview procedures would be focused on testing the candidates’ ethical attitude, besides the winning aptitude.
  • The objective of UPSC in deciding the question pattern of civil services examinations does demand huge appreciation, as it focuses on the civil services aptitude of the candidates and moral and ethical values and that are considered, as the key factors for any designations that are associated with the civil services cadre. Such motives of UPSC are praiseworthy, as it has gone way beyond the normal boundaries of the syllabus. The significant fact about the syllabus is that it measures the ethical values of the candidates. This is fantastic and this is what required in today’s world, where most of the people do not possess it!

Advantages

  • Common aptitude test for all the candidates, irrespective of the civil services, like, IAS/IPS/IFS, and other Group A / Group B job categories, which is covered in the Regulation Act.
  • No confusions of significance, regarding the concentration to the subjects, i.e. in the present scenario, the Civil Services examination comprises of two subjects for preliminary examinations, such as ‘General Studies’ and ‘Optional Subjects’. Some people would be convenient with the general subjects and others might concentrate more on optional subjects, but there would be a bigger percentage of candidates, who are confused regarding the percentage of concentration in these two subjects.
  • The new scheme of UPSC CSAT comprises of two common, objective type, question papers and does not contain any subject specifications, such as general studies, or choices of optional subjects. Hence, there would be two common question papers, consisting of multiple-choice questions that would be in turn common to all the candidates, who are aspiring to appear to the UPSC examinations.
  • Recently, the government received many complaints regarding the civil services examinations, as the previous versions of the civil service examination are said to be biased on some grounds. This is the reason for the UPSC and the government to come up with a new scheme of UPSC examinations under the category called as the ‘Civil Services Aptitude Test’. Now, the candidates could breathe properly, as the UPSC Exams (CSAT) is said to be common, thereby avoiding any misconceptions.

Disadvantages

  • The age limit is said to be reduced. The UPSC has advised the government on the same.
  • The number of attempts that a person is eligible for are also said to be reduced. The UPSC has advised the government of India, regarding the reduction of number of attempts of a candidate.
  • There are speculations regarding the changes in the main examination too. This is confusing many candidates, as they are not been provided with any clear information/instructions.
