MPSC changes pattern: Aligned with UPSC, to be implemented from 2023

Maharashtra PSC has recently released a notification citing changes in the pattern. Now the main examination will be subjective/descriptive in nature (essay type answers) instead of objective (MCQ type) questions. Also, an Ethics paper has also been introduced, modern history will also be included.

From earlier 6 papers in MPSC Mains now we will have 9 papers, with total marks now standing at 1750 in Mains, closely resembling UPSC’s pattern.

Closely resembling the UPSC pattern

Implications of this change

It has certainly made MPSC mains more comprehensive, requiring a wide-based knowledge just like UPSC.

  • It will be easier for UPSC aspirants to prepare for MPSC and vice-versa.
  • It improve the percentage of Marathi candidates appearing and clearing UPSC as the paper pattern is almost the same.
  • It will give equal opportunity to those from rural as well as urban areas. Now every candidate must play on a level playing field.
  • For those UPSC aspirants who have exhausted their attempts, they would find it easier to appear and crack MPSC.
  • Aspirants who will reappear in 2023 will have to consider it as a fresh attempt as they have to study almost from scratch.

All these pose an opportunity as well as a challenge for aspirants but for sure it calls for a change in strategy.

..amazing observation was the overwhelming number of rankers from Maharashtra.

This was evident from 200+ rankers, including 30+ in the top 50 in the UPSC 2021 exam. Another amazing observation was the overwhelming number of rankers from Maharashtra.
