    The news of new notification is been around from past 2 months, KPSC has already changed the syllabus of mains for the next notification. official notification is yet to come, there are speculations that the notification may come before Nov 2014.

From now there will be negative marks in preliminary exam as in UPSC. These were the academic changes happened with KAS exam, more than this there were many non academic changes which may change the attitude of people towards the exam.

   This is the right time to start one again seriously, Since 2015 UPSC preliminary is also scheduled in may and both the syllabus are almost inline.

Govt urges to postpone UPSC prelims exam till there is clarity on the syllabus

The ruling BJP Govt may form a committee to examine the issue of demand to roll back changes in UPSC syllabus. As per yesterday news Govt has urged to postpone the exam  till there is a clarity on the issue.

Demand to roll back the changes in UPSC prelims

The UPSC aspirants in Delhi are demanding the rollback of the changes made to UPSC civil service exam prelims syllabus in 2011. UPSC has introduces CSAT as second paper for 200 marks from 2011 in prelims paper, though it is a rational positive change aspirants from arts background are demanding to roll back the change.

CSAT paper which has 200 marks has covered only 10th level concepts which do not need any special knowledge training. With the old pattern which had more humanities than CSAT, aspirants from arts background been more compatible than science students. The currents pattern has the balanced syllabus and it covers all the points needed.
The demand though not from all the section of the aspirants got attentions since it is backed by ABVP which is the student wing of ruling BJP.

Lets Assume UPSC

The aspiration for being administrator in Karnataka civil service seems some time not rational, not for all.
The probability of success should be the criteria to start, but the success is multidimensional. It is not just becoming government servants but to learn the basic things that we might have missed in the course of our graduation.

Keeping all the negative points of KPSC away, lets assume we are UPSC as our dream.
