Negative Marking in UPSC

The negative marking as introduced in UPSC has far more consequences than any other change brought about in the examination pattern. Preliminary has become a different game altogether. It's not the time to take it lightly considering that it is a change for everyone. The new scenario demands the strategy to be re-focused and re-invented. Those who have already appeared in a prelims exam might have experienced that a good number of questions are done through guesses. Some fact or a piece of information flashes in the memory and the question is attempted. In this process, many of the questions are marked incorrect and these wrong questions will now pull down the overall marks scored by the candidate. This scenario has reduced the role of guesses drastically and the candidate will have to be very clear about his choices. Psychological pressure in an already stressful exam would multiply. As prelims involve a huge amount of facts and information to be crammed, following 4 things become most important:-

1. Whatever you study is relevant
2. The information you have collected is correct
3. It is in the precise form
4. You should be able to co-relate the information with all corresponding fields
