New exam pattern for Civil Services Exams from 2011

Civil services exam is one of the top services exams in India. Every year thousand of students took this exam and one few clear the preliminary exam. This is one of the toughest and respectable exams of the country. The aspiring candidates go through a rigorous procedure to clear the exam and get selected for the desired services. From thousands of candidates only hundreds could able to make for the final round and from these hundred only few could reach the final selection round.
The Civil Services Examination Board always tries to make a standard of the examination so that they can select the best officers who can justify their responsibilities very well. The Civil Services Examination Board implements new patterns and style of examination to upgrade the standard of the candidates. Aspiring candidates for the civil services exam will face a new pattern of examination from next year. The government has approved the proposal to introduce an aptitude test in place of existing preliminary examination to shortlist the candidates for the main exam.
In this new pattern, the candidates will have to appear in two objective-type papers having special emphasis on testing their aptitude level and ethical and moral dimensions of decision making under this Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT).
According to the new pattern- equal weightage will be given to all the candidates in place of one common paper and one optional paper as in previous pattern. This pattern emphasis more one aptitude and decision making thing as compared to previous paper which stress over more on subject knowledge and awareness.
For the time being, the changes will be only implementing on the first preliminary stage from the 2011 onwards. The second and third stage may remain same for some time till the committee will not submit its report on different pattern and various aspects of the entire exam and system.
Confirming the change for the first stage of CSE, minister of state for personnel Prithviraj Chavan said: "CSAT is expected to come into effect from CSE, 2011." The proposal to this effect was sent to the PMO last year by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) which conducts CSE every year to select candidates for elite all-India services, including IAS, IPS, IFS, IRS and others Group 'A' and Group 'B' central jobs.
Giving more stress over the exam pattern an official said: "The new system will also provide a level-playing field and equity, since all candidates will have to attempt common papers unlike the current format which provides for only one common paper."
