1. There will be a good number of easy questions, some of them very easy. Not all questions will be tough. But still many people get the easier one’s incorrect. Why? Because they overthink on them, surprised that why UPSC has asked such an easy question. They go on looking for a trick in the question, when there isn’t any. Don’t do this.
2. Do not overlook a question without even reading it just because it’s from a topic you have not done. The asked question may be an easy one or one which you can solve by applying logic. Similarly a tough looking question may actually be a simple one. You may go for some logical guesses, but do not make a totally wild guess.
3. Darken the Circles in the answer sheet latest by one and a half hour after the start of exam. Do not leave it for the last 5 minutes.
4. Please ensure that you have all the necessary items – black pens, watch (do not go with a digital watch, some centres don’t allow it), admit card, photographs (in case you don’t have admit card), id proof (some centres ask for it, while most do not) etc.
