Doubt 2 – I took the UPSC Prelims 2020 and qualified for the Mains 2020. However, I could not clear the Mains, when can I see my Prelims and Mains marksheet?

Ans – As mentioned above, the marksheet for prelims (for both successful and unsuccessful candidates) is released after the Final Result (after the Interview) for that exam year is declared.

Doubt 6 – Why can’t I see the marks of my Language papers (compulsory) in Mains?

Ans – As those are qualifying papers, UPSC does not release the marks for them. However, in case a candidate has not secured the qualifying marks in them, the Mains marksheet will not have scores for the other papers as well.

Doubt 7 – How can seeing the marks help me form the exam strategy for UPSC 2023?

Ans – The marks are a quantified expression of a candidate’s performance in a given exam for the given year. However, the goal is to score above the cut off and not do PhD level research on a particular subject.

First, the qualifying papers (prelims and Language papers in Mains) should be a top priority, especially for Mains as marks for other papers are not disclosed if a candidate fails to clear the qualifying papers.

For other papers, marks should be seen in perspective with the syllabus, and grasp of current affairs related to that paper (GS-II, GS-III in particular). The aim should be to complete the whole question paper, e.g., instead of writing 12/20 answers correctly, try to answer all 20 questions with as much quality as you can muster. Candidates invariably find to their dissatisfaction that even after writing perfect answers they still scored on the lower end of the spectrum and the subsequent year, they spend an excessive amount of time on that subject at a cost to other papers. Having the relevant information and presenting the information in the exam are two separate things.

Interview marks are similarly subjective (the outcome of 20 minutes in front of a panel) and hence, the focus should be more on the soft skills instead of mugging reams of theoretical content for the Personality Test.

So, a candidate should reflect after seeing their marks whether it’s about lack of knowledge or an improvement in presentation skills (soft skills, tables, maps, diagrams, underlining the vital information, etc.) that is required.
