CSAT journey from 2011

When CSAT was introduced in the year 2011, there was a sudden plunge of engineers into the Civil Services Exam. As it was biased towards the urban and English medium students (as alleged by one group of aspirants), CSAT paper was made qualifying. There started the gambling with this paper. In 2015 and 2016 the paper was easier and suddenly in 2017 it was made difficult. Again in 2018, the paper was easier. In this sine wave of easy and difficulty, the students started hazarding this paper in the shadow of GS paper. This year the paper was on tougher side in line with 2017 paper.

When it comes to preparation the aspirants keep on postponing the preparation until end. When an aspirant can’t plan her/his preparation until March, there comes a factor of testing the luck in the paper. Finally, when the paper comes tough, the aspirants will be worried of this paper instead of counting GS Paper.

So, don’t push your preparation until March. Have a discipline of working on this paper right from the starting. Start practicing 5-10 questions on daily taking 30 minutes out of your GS schedule.
