UPPSC Exam Pattern

In order to assess candidates thoroughly, the UPPSC PCS Exam is structured into three distinct stages:

  • Preliminary Examination: This stage includes two papers conducted in an objective format.
  • Main Examination: The main exam consists of eight papers in an essay/descriptive format.
  • Interview: The final stage is a personal interview conducted by a board appointed by UPPSC.


The PCS Prelims Exam acts as a filtering mechanism to identify eligible candidates. It includes two papers, Paper 1 and Paper 2, consisting of multiple-choice questions (MCQs). Each paper is worth 200 marks.

Name of Exam
UPPSC (PCS & ACF/ RFO) Preliminary Exam
No. of Papers (2)
Paper 1 – General Studies, Paper 2 – General Studies 2 (CSAT)
Duration of ExamTwo hours for each paper
Maximum Marks200 marks each
Number of Questions
Paper 1: 150 questions & Paper 2: 100 questions
Nature of QuestionsMCQ (Multiple Choice Questions)
Exam Type
Offline using OMR sheets (Pen-paper)
  • The cutoff for the exam is determined based on the marks obtained in Paper 1. Candidates should atleast score a minimum of 33% marks in Paper 2.
  • Negative marking of 0.33% is applied for each incorrect answer.
  • For instance, if a question carries a maximum of 2 marks, an incorrect answer will result in a penalty of 0.66 marks.
  • Marking multiple circles for the same question on the OMR sheet is considered incorrect and incurs negative marking. No negative marking is applied for leaving a question blank.


Candidates who qualify in the PCS Prelims Exam proceed to the Mains Exam, which plays a crucial role in the final selection. The Mains Exam consists of eight descriptive papers, carrying a total weightage of 1500 marks. Two notable changes have been introduced in the UPPSC Main Exam pattern:

  • The objective type papers have been replaced with descriptive type papers, resembling the format used in the past but with an increased number of papers.
  • A new addition is the inclusion of an ‘Ethics’ paper, which was not present in the earlier pattern.


Interview is the last round of the UPPSC Exam. Candidates who clear the Mains Exam are invited for a personal interview, which carries a weightage of 100 marks. The interview is conducted by an impartial board appointed by UPPSC.

  • The objective of the interview is to gauge the candidate’s compatibility with a career in the state services, appraised by neutral evaluators and a capable committee.
  • Apart from academic knowledge, candidates should have awareness of current affairs at the state and national levels.
  • The interview aims to explore the candidates’ analytical abilities and mental qualities through purposeful conversations.
