          The questions in the Prelim exam were very relevant to the needs of India's bureaucracy. The would-be bureaucrats should be fully known to the contemporary issues and challenges faced by the country. This is what they will need to deal with when they will join the administrative services. The aspirants should not be surprised.lt;br/gt;Similar questions should be expected in the Main Exam., too.

                Cut off would be 120-125. The paper was quite easy for serious candidates. GM and OBC can expect cut off to be 120 .
