[SOLVED] 9 September 2017 | UPSC CAPF Asst. Commandent | Quiz #1

Dear all,

This is a new initiative for CSE students who are also thinking of appearing for the CAPF exam. I will be carrying out weekly quizzes and some blogs on request (of students) to begin with and then depending upon your enthusiasm, we will take this forward into a full blown – one stop solution for your CAPF preparation needs.

This thread will be made sticky every week and all CAPF related posts will be available for your review here (click).

<p id=”YJPACAYxAtq” class=”line”>UPSC CAPF examination is divided into two papers, consisting of 450 marks in total. Candidates are tested on their general ability and intelligence and general studies, essay and comprehension skills. Selected candidates will be called for interview round conducted by SSB to fill 179 vacancies in BSF (Border Security Force), CRPF (Central Reserve Personnel Force), CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) and SSB(Shashatra Seema Bal).

The solutions will be uploaded here sometime towards the midweek and doubts will be resolved here itself.
