UKPCS science mains paper-2016 analysis

Previously we have seen analysis and observations on History, Geography, Economy and Polity paper of #UKPSC 2016 main exam. In this post we shall see our analysis and observations on  UKPCS Science Mains paper:-
1. Most students, specially of non-science background found this paper very tough. Even Science students would have found this tough if they were not well prepared. UKPSC has 35% qualifying marks for every paper(for unreserved seats) so to get intrerview call, one should at least get 70 in this paper. However many students fear they have not been been able to attempt this much in UKPCS Science Mains paper. We can only say that last time marking was very liberal so many got more than their expectation in this paper. So there is still hope.
2. If we see marks from last time, many have actually scored above 140 in this paper. So this might be a scoring paper if one prepares diligently. But one must be very thorough and not leave any area in syllabus.
3. UKPCS Science Mains paper this year was similar in difficulty to last year. Very well distributed questions. Biology: 40 marks. Chemistry:72, Computer science: 28, Disaster management: 34, Environment:43, Physics: 26, Random: 5 marks(patent question).
4. The questions required wide study and not to be attempted lightly. Even when it seemed like general type questions, these required specific points. For example LAN, MAN, WAN question required knowledge of topologies, question on menstural cycle required harmonal control etc.
5. UKPCS Science Mains paper would not seem tough to a well prepared person who has even read wikipedia pages of  all topics as questions were straightforward and from within syllabus. The problem students may face here is no defined reading material as one has to read through NCERTs, Computer science book, environment disaster management etc.

  1. first of all please clarify that do we have to get minimum 30% marks in every paper or is it 35%.

    Secondly, the analysis if science paper is apt. The paper was more on a tougher side.

    Thirdly, Please come up with more article as such . And please , if possible, provide us notes (in english) on uttarakhand portion as it is now playing a major role .

    Also, Please guide us for Uttarakhand lower PCS as well.

    Thanks for the valuable efforts you are putting in.

  2. Thank you for the comment. The minimum marks required are indeed 35% as given in Rules. The error has been corrected in the post. As for providing notes, we are still exploring ways to make these available. This is currently a purely non-commercial enterprise meaning team members cannot be coerced to do such things. We will inform as and when anything is decided.
    Also as I have said previously, we have limited capacity and none of us has ever written Lower PCS or has any familiarity with its syllabus. We can only provide guidance for Upper PCS, where we can ensure certain quality in approach, content and analysis. We believe that by overstepping our circle of competence, we would not be doing any justice to ourselves or to our readers.
    Thanks again.

  3. Sir, sometime there is problem loading this web address , the website does not opens.
