The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducted the Civil Services (Preliminary) examination 2022 on 05th June. The initial reactions about the GS paper, from several aspirants, were that it was a mixed bag in terms of difficulty level and areas asked.
The reason behind majority of candidates struggling with the GS paper is because very few candidates are able to hold their nerves in the examination hall. If one gets nervous after going through the first 20 difficult questions, then it becomes very hard to focus on the relatively easy ones. Combined with other factors, this makes many candidates mark wrong answers for questions they would have otherwise got correct.
Moving forward, the most important thing to do for those who have appeared in the Prelims is to move to the preparation of next phase i.e., the Main exam. There is bound to be a lot of talk about the potential cutoffs, whether it will go up or down, but the fact remains that CS(P) 2022 is over and the sooner one starts preparing wholeheartedly for CS(M), the better. The short time available between the declaration of the Prelims result and onset of Main exam should not be lost by counting oneself out of the race, based on cutoffs floating in the market. If one is a sincere candidate, one is bound to appear in Main exam sooner than later and it will be best to keep preparing with the assumption that one is clearing the exam.
