The Union Public Service Commission conducts the Civil Services Examination (CSE) to select suitable candidates for the Indian civil services. It is conducted in three phases: Prelims, Mains, and the Personality test or Interview.

When it comes to qualifying for the UPSC CSE, the only thing that comes to mind is the preparation method. It takes years of hard effort, devotion, and practice to succeed. But before that it is important to know the type of questions that can be posed in the exam in order to put one's efforts in the right direction. An aspirant can only be able to effectively prepare when he/she knows what kind of questions can be asked in a real exam. Solving Previous Year UPSC Papers will help the students to evaluate the best way to write the answers during exams.

Practicing past year papers is a great way to organise your study time and make the most of the time you have. It enables students to analyze their performance and determine where they fall short in their preparation and how to close the knowledge gap. This would also help them in preparing for their exams in a better way. They should use these papers to evaluate the subject's strengths and weaknesses.

This gives a sense of confidence to the students. After answering these questions, they believe that the final test will be a piece of cake for them, too. Below we have mentioned a list of Previous Year Papers of UPSC exams.
