KPSC Examination Pattern Is Changing From Next Year – 2011

It is “Times of Change” this year ! First it was Union Service Public Commission (UPSC), which made some remarkable changes to it’s selection process (currently changes are made only to preliminary examination), which has come in after about 30+ years. It brought in CSAT, the conventional ‘optionals’ paper, is removed and instead a Civil Services Aptitude Test paper is introduced.

Following the footsteps of UPSC, Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) too is all set to make changes in it’s examination pattern, reported Deccan Herald. I had a faint idea about this for more than a year now. Last year, a highly placed source had hinted about such a change.

The current recruitment process is very slow, and flawed. Take this years example, Kannada optional paper was extremely easy (with due respect to all those who had taken Kannada as their optional), which kept away most candidates of other optionals. Rumors are that, out of 5400 odd students who are set to write their mains from December 4th, 2010, more than 75+ % students are those who have Kannada as their first optional. If you take last year, those who had taken Public Administration and History had an advantage. This shows a pattern, which begged to be changed.

This move is believed to bring transparency, bring more ‘wise’ candidates and finally somehow ‘hopefully’ will keep the government appointments clean from any sort of political intervention.

CSAT 2011 Model Paper

UPSC recently announced on their official website that soon they will release some copies of model question Paper for CSAT.

Thinking on general terms, we can come up with a paper which would pretty much be like a CSAT paper.

In my opinion, to begin with, those who are preparing for the CSAT 2011 exams should start with strengthening their fundamentals, especially Mathematics. Mathematics is the foundation and rest all depends on how good you are in it.

Once you have done some ground work and are confident in solving mathematical problems, then you should start working out problems from R S Aggarwal.

That should be the strategy to begin with. I’ll soon update with the CSAT 2011 Model Paper. Till then, you can do the above.
