2017 – 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 2 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.

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.

General Instructions

  1. The time limit is 2 hours.
  2. This test is to check your accuracy. You will be given 1 point for every correct answer.
  3. Try to get at least 60 questions right. 40 you should know. 20 you have to take a chance.
  4. Make a note of all your incorrect answers. Revise and re-revise them.
