    The major difference in the UPSC prelims exams are:

    In Old version:
    There was two papers- General studies and 2nd paper was an optional paper( choose from 23 subjects any one subjects)

    In the new pattern there are two papers
    Both the papers are of objective type
    Marks 200 marks per paper
    Min time 120 minutes

    Paper 1- General studies
    paper 2- general mental ability, comprehension, reasoning

    The major difference is that paper 2 now is a common paper for all the candidates giving the prelims exams

    Hi,

    UPSC Preliminary Exam consists of two papers of Objective type.Each carries 200 marks.

    There is no change in the Preliminary Exam. UPSC has planned to make some changes in Main Examination which would be effective from 2013.
