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.

What Is The Cut Off For KPSC / KAS Prelims For Men And Women

Preliminary results of KPSC examinations held on 06-06-2010 was announced late in the evening today. Unlike last time, the cut off is not mentioned on the site and students are left in the dark about this.

However, I’m trying to arrive at cut-off by talking to some of my friends who had appeared for the exam in the month of June. Statistics so far :

Cut Off for Men – General merit:

Someone I know with 310 has not cleared and another friend has 320+ and has cleared, so the cut off has to be 310+.

And cut off for women has to be more than 283+ as a friend I know has scored 283 and she hasn’t cleared.

I’ll update this page as and when I get more information. If you have more valid information, please share it with us.

Thanks in advance.

**Update**

General Merit Cut Off is around 330
