I appreciate that your showing interest to crack the UPSC Examination but you didn't specified which exam pattern you needed. UPSC i.e Union Public Service Commission is Central agency conducts the CSE, SCRA, NDA, IES, I.S.S/I.E.S, CDS, CAPF, Combined Medical Service Examination and Geologist Examination. It is difficult to provide all the exam pattern and portions. But I think your asking about the Civil Service Examination.

Civil Service Examination(CSE) conducts once in a year for recruitment of IAS, IPS, IFS, Customs, Railway, Traffic..etc. To apply for this examination the candidate must have a completed graduation from a recognized University. The candidate must have a minimum 21 years and maximum 30 years. Final year of degree course may also eligible to apply. If you are completed degree course than you need to crack the CSE Examination. Civil Service Examination is divided into three level and they are Preliminary(CSAT), Main Examination followed by Personal Interview.

Preliminary Examination(CSAT) Pattern :-

Paper I: 200 marks - 2 Hours
  • Current Events of National and International Importance
  • History of India and Indian National Movement
  • Indian and World Geography - Physical, Social, Economic Geography of India and the world

  • Economic and Social Development - Sustainable Development, Poverty, Inclusion, Demographics, Social Sector Initiatives
  • General Issues on Environmental Ecology, Bio-diversity and Climate Change
  • General Science

Paper II: 200 marks - 2 Hours
  • Comprehension
  • Interpersonal skills including communication skills
  • Logical reasoning and analytical ability
  • Decision-making and problem solving
  • General mental ability
  • Basic numeracy (Class X level)
  • English language comprehension (Class X level)
