No Model Answers exist for CS Mains Questions, says UPSC


UPSC in an RTI reply has clarified that  no model answers are used for correction of Mains answer sheets. 

An RTI was filed owing to delay in results of CSE Mains 2014 due the issue of quashing of Jat Reservation by Supreme Court,  to bring forth some clarity on the issue from Union Public Service Commission.

The RTI asked two questions:-

  • Whether Jats were treated as General candidates from Prelims stage or Mains stage.
  • Whether any model answers exist for copy checkers for CS Mains?

UPSC replied:-

  • As a consequence of the judgement , UPSC treated community students as General candidates for both Prelims and Mains. 
  • No model answers exist for CS Mains Examination, and hence it cannot provide any.

The Union Public Service Commission had deferred results of the Civil services mains examination due to the Supreme Court verdict scrapping Jat reservation.

The UPSC  sought DoPT’s view on whether to withdraw reservation benefits to Jat community students. The DoPT told UPSC to go with the SC order and decide for itself on what needs to be done. After which , the results were published on April 12 , 2015.
