2015 – UPSC Prelims Previous Year Paper : Attempt Test Live + All India Rank

At Civilsdaily, we have been able to decode many of the repeating themes and trends of the actual UPSC exam. These have become best practices that we incorporate while making questions for our Test Series and Open Tests.

Despite that, we cannot stress enough on the importance of attempting the actual UPSC exam paper in exam settings. There are 3 things you will gain out of it.  

  1. Some questions get repeated directly from previous year papers. More often than not, they are not the easy ones and are almost impossible to solve if one has not attempted them before. 
  2. Practice the Tikdam Technique that our test series would have helped you develop.
  3. There are many questions from offbeat topics that are impossible for any test series to predict. The themes of these topics become important.

We see a change in pattern from the 2017 Prelims exam onwards. Hence, the 2017 & 2018 papers become very important. At least 2014-2016 papers are a must end to end.

Here we present the 2015 Prelims Paper.

*Please note – Our Test Series has far more detailed explanations and remarks. These solutions were prepared on the same day the exam happened. Hence they are not detailed to appeal to a layman.

Dear students,

1. In the comments section, share your score and also let everyone know the logic you’ve used to mark certain answers. This will trigger intelligent discussions benefitting everyone.

2. Completing the test should be your top priority. Focus on accuracy rather than simply attempting more questions. Give enough thought to each question, we have increased the time limit so you can do this.

3. At the end of the test, click on ‘View Questions’ button to check the solutions.

*You can attempt the test multiple times for your own practice but only your first attempt will be counted for rankings.
