EXPECTED CUT-OFF IN UTTARAKHAND PCS (PRE)- 2012

The Uttarakhand Public Service Commission (UKPSC) combined state upper subordinate service examination (PCS PRE Exam 2012), which was successfully held on 30th November 2014 at various examination centers.

Since the UKPSC has adopted CSAT  from this year and considering the difficulty level in General Aptitude for non- Maths background aspirants, the expected cut-off for Preliminary exam would be around 185-190 (General) . In the GA paper, there are some questions having more than one answers or the incorrect answer being shown in Official answer key.

Although the General Studies was easy but with negative marking in the paper, its never easy to score 110/150 for every Tom Dick and Harry. Some of the questions asked in GS were very tricky this time. For example:

1) Who is the author of the book ‘ The Accumulation of Capital’? a)Joan Robinson b) Adam smith c)Lord Maynard Keynes d) None Most of the students have marked Adam Smith as he has written ‘The wealth of Nations’ but the correct answer is Joan Robinson.

2) There was a question on E-mail message, while most of the candidates opted for E-mail spamming but the correct one was E-mail bombing.

3) In Cyber Law ‘DOS’ means; Maximum candidates right away went for Disk Operating System instead of Denial Of service.

4) There was a question on New Development Bank by BRICS coountries: Maximum candidates opted for $100 bn instead of $50bn as $100 bn was the initial authorised capital while $50 bn was the initial subsidized capital.

The General Aptitude section was completely within reach of Bank P.O/Clerk aspirants as they are habitual of tackling statement and assumption, conclusion type question. This section was full of Maths and reasoning questions. Although the paper was not very tough but it wasn’t easy either.

After negative marking the likely score in GS: 100-105/150       &        GA: 85-90/150. Expected cut-off  in Uttarakhand PCS (pre): 185-190/300 (General)

Category The expected cut-off Marks
General 185-190
OBC 160-170
SC 140-150
ST 125-135

So, those who have scored more than 185 marks should start preparations for PCS mains and those who are near 180 marks must fill up the objection formats in support of their claims in the disputed questions and answers.

I hope you would find your names in the list of 2500 aspirants clearing the first hurdle. Best of Luck Guys!

GOLDEN THOUGHTS

GOLDEN THOUGHTS

Start where you stand

and never mind the past,

the past won’t help you in beginning new.

If you have left it all behind at last.

Why, that’s enough,

you are done with it, you are through;

This is another chapter in the book,

this is another race that you have planned.

Start where you stand,

The world won’t care about your old defeats.

If you start anew and win success,

The future is your time, and time fleets.

And there is much of work and strain and stress;

Forget the buries woes and dead despairs

Here is a brand new trial right at hand

The future is for him who does & dares,

Start where you stand— Berton Braley

Stay motivated, keep your nerves under control….

Try to learn them any way. English is not our mother tongue and in order to learn its words we have to make some memorable associations with our own language and past experiences. Initially I also got afraid of unfamiliar words, but there is no other way to escape!

We have to learn them by hook or by crook. No one is coming to ask how you learnt them, so make some funny pictures in mind and build your armoury…

And don’t forget to share this post with your friends!!!

I am dedicating this section for the improvement of vocabulary for exams. It takes a huge time to master this section of English, but if you prepare it in a planned way then you can score sufficient marks. Almost 15 to 20 questions appear in the form of antonyms and synonyms. Ignorance  of vocabulary is suicidal in exams.

These words are very important for various competitive exams. From my own experience I can assure you that these words are being repeated again and again in different exams. Learn these words and smile in examination hall when they come in front of you!

COMPETITIVE EXAM QUESTION

COMPETITIVE EXAM QUESTIONS (2)

प्र० अंग्रेजों के शाषन काल में बंगाल विभाजन की योजना कब प्रभावी हुई थी?

1) 7 अगस्त, 1905

2) 14 अक्टूबर, 1905

3) 20 जुलाई, 1905

4) 16 अक्टूबर, 1905

 

 

उत्तर० 16 अक्टूबर, 1905

बंगाल प्रेसीडेंसी तत्कालीन सभी प्रेसिडेंसीएस में सबसे बड़ी थी, इसमें पस्च्मि और पूर्वी बंगाल सहित बिहार और ओर्रिसा भी शामिल थे. असम बंगाल से 1874 में ही अलग हो चूका था.

यद्यपि तत्कालीन गवर्नर जनरल ने इस विभाजन का कारण प्रशाशनिक असुविधा बताया परन्तु विभाजन का वास्तविक कारण कुछ और था क्यूंकि बंगाल उस समय राष्ट्रीय चेतना का केंद्र बिंदु था और इसी चेतना को नष्ट करने के लिए बंगाल विभाजन का निर्णय लिया गया .

20 जुलाई  1905 बंगाल विभाजन के निर्णय की घोषणा हुई.7 अगस्त को कलकत्ता के टाउन हॉल में संपन्न एक बैठक में स्वदेशी आंदोलन की घोषणा हुई तथा बहिष्कार प्रस्ताव पारित हुआ.16 अक्टूबर 1905 को बंगाल विभाजन की योजना प्रभावी हो गई .

विभाजन के बाद पूर्वी बंगाल और असम को मिलकर एक नया प्रान्त बनाया गया जिसमे राजशाही, चटगांव , ढाका आदि सम्मिलित थे जहाँ की कुल जनसँख्या 3 करोड़ थी, ढाका यहाँ की राजधानी थी.

विभाजित बंगाल के दूसरे भाग में प० बंगाल, बिहार और ओरिसा थे , जिसकी कुल आबादी 5 करोड़ थी जिनमे 4 करोड़ हिन्दू और १ करोड़ मुस्लिम थे.

16 अक्टूबर, 1905 का दिन समूचे बंगाल में शोकदिवस के रूप में मना गया लोगो ने उब्वास रखा, वन्देमाराम के गीत गए औरएक दूसरे को राखी बंधी, इस दिन को राखी दिवस के रूप में भी मनाया गया.

बंगाल विभाजन का विरोध दिन प्रतिदिन बढ़ता जा रहा था, बंगाली बुधीजनो ने विभाजन को अपनी एकता और राष्ट्रवाद पर प्रहार माना और इस कृत्य को बंगाल की संस्कृति, इतिहास, भाषा का अपमान के रूप में देखा गया. राष्ट्रवादियों ने इस प्रस्ताव को अंग्रेजो की “फुट डालो और राज करो” की नीति का अंग करार दिया.

बंगाल विभाजन का चाहे कुछ भी प्रशाशनिक आधार बताया गया हो पर इतिहास में यह लार्ड कर्जन की एक भयंकर भूल के नाम से जानी गयी, इस कुकृत्य से अंग्रेजो की मंशा का साक्षात्कार पुरे देश को हो गया था.

1911 में बंगाल को फिर एक कर दिया गया , बंगाल विभाजन और उसके परिणाम स्वरुप जो विरोध उत्पन्न हुआ उसने भविष्य में होने वाले राष्ट्रीय अन्दोलानो के लिए देश को एकजुट करने का महत्वपूर्ण कार्य किया.
