GK for IFoS Main

New batch alert

A new batch of this course will start after Prelims 2018.

A short introduction

IFoS Main Examination has the following papers.

Subject Number of papers Total marks
General Knowledge 1 Paper of 300 marks 300
English 1 Paper of 300 Marks 300
Optional Subject 1 2 Papers of 200 Marks each 400
Optional Subject 2 2 Papers of 200 Marks each 400

Out of these, General Knowledge plays a crucial role in doing well in the Main Examination. It decides your selection as well as final rank in the IFoS Examination.

From the year 2012, the UPSC has decided to make obtaining a certain minimum qualifying marks as a pre-requisite for evaluating rest of subjects’ answer scripts. This new development has suddenly raised the GK stakes all the more.

All the people who got a Top-10 rank in the IFoS in the recent years have invariably been high scorers in GK.

With such an importance of GK in the IFoS selection process, no serious candidate takes it lightly.

However, one point which many serious candidates tend to miss is that GK for IFoS has its special requirements.

It just can’t simply be treated as an extension of General Studies for the CSE. The questions of IFoS GK are very different in orientation as compared to the Civil Service Examination.
