Summary: The UPSC this time shifted its focus from S&T to Geography. The level
of questions in geography sections easy to moderate. Perhaps one question was
repeated (the rainiest place in India is located in). Some of the questions are
conceptual but many are fact based (such as strait connecting Bay of Bengal and
Arabian Sea). Level of polity section questions are moderate. History continues to be
received least attention with two questions (the question on 1935Act is debatable
between history and polity). Level of S&T section was moderate to high where
students need to apply the concepts.
