# Oracle IAS analysis and tips for general aptitude for UKPCS:

- Paper 7 consists of General Aptitude and Ethics. The weightage of General Aptitude is
**120/200 i.e. 60% of Paper 7**. - General Aptitude could be the most scoring part if prepared well. Aspirants can score as high as
**110/120.** - Many students with
**Math/Engineering**background tend to take this section lightly. Though the questions seem easy at first sight, but since if an aspirant is out of practice, he/she might not be able to complete the whole paper within time frame. - Since marks are allotted for each step, aspirants should make it a habit to
**not apply shortcuts**. - As per our analysis, an aspirant should try to complete the General Aptitude part within
**90 min**and allocate the remaining time for the Ethics section. General aptitude for ukpsc
