2018 – 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.
  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 2018 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 that detailed to appeal to a layman.

General Instructions

  1. Exam is of 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.

Some of the answers provided by CD seem to be inconsistent with the UPSC answer key. Kindly check and rectify.
