Hello Friends,

Unpredictability is the nature of UPSC. And it has proved it yet again!

The General Studies (GS) Paper 1UPSC Prelims 2020 has set high standards for students and also this Prelims paper throws light on how the preparation should be streamlined for those who want to have a career in civil services.

The ANSWER KEY is published below.

OPEN DISCUSSION -Any Queries/Corrections with respect to the Answer key can be discussed with proof/justification. Also, you can use the Comment Section below to discuss/share your thoughts about UPSC Prelims 2020 Question Paper.
