On Sunday over 12000 aspirants appeared for UPSC examinations at Vijayawada centres. Around 27
centres were allocated across the city and the examination took place in two shifts – one in the
morning and one in the evening.
Across the whole state, only three cities were allocated centres for the examination. The cities are:
Tirupati, Vijayawada and Vishakhapatnam. Over 40,000 candidates from Andhra Pradesh applied for
the UPSC examination.
There were two papers in total and as per the initial review of the students; the paper 2 was a bit
difficult and trickier. Most of the questions took time in analysis and they were asked in a difficult
manner. Students are in the expectation of a reduced cut off this year.
Considering the difficulty of the paper, the cutoff is likely to drop this year and it may bring a sigh of
relief to the students.
