The process of evaluation of the exam booklet starts with a meeting arranged by the UPSC where in the Head Examiner and the Additional examiners are present. The agenda of the meeting is to discuss all the questions and their appropriate answers and the standards of evaluation are agreed upon. After the booklets are evaluated the Head Examiner conducts a sample survey of answer book of each additional examiner to ensure that the set standards of evaluation are followed. Therefore, if the sample survey is not as per the standards there is an upward/ downward moderation carried upon as considered necessary to make sure that there is uniformity maintained through out the evaluation procedure. When there is uniformity ensured in evaluation of all the answer booklets the Head Examiner confirms the marks given without any change.
As answered before there is maximum uniformity in the standards of evaluation maintained which leaves less to no room for any such possibility.
No. The individual question wise marks are not awarded to any candidate as there are moderations done wherever and whenever required.
In a situation like this the UPSC uses the ‘ Tie- Breaking’ principle. According to this principle
a. the candidate who has cumulatively secured more marks in the Compulsory Papers and Personality Test is ranked higher. In case, these are also equal
b. the candidate who is senior in age is ranked higher. If this is also equaled then
c. the candidate securing more marks in the Compulsory paper alone is awarded the higher rank.
The UPSC exams are based on practical and dynamic events which makes it a tough exam but the syllabus of these exams is consistent which doesn’t award any privileges to a particular kind of students and is an opportunity for all those to seize who are willing to appear for it.
Any candidate who has a FIR file against them can appear for the exam but on final selection of the candidate there is a police verification done of the candidate. Those who clear the police verification are selected, therefore, the candidate must ensure they are acquitted from such cases.
