[NT Exam Review] HPPSC NT Prelims Exam 2014 Review held on 23rd November

HPPSC conducted NT Prelims Exam on 23rd November at the various Centres in Himachal Pradesh. Approximately 19000 Aspirants were issued Roll Numbers. This year NT Prelims Exam was Easier than the previous Year as there were some direct easy questions, although they maintained their level of toughness this year too. So overall the Exam was moderate, But due to lesser Number of seats and some direct questions Cut off may increase this year. Questions were asked form various sections But there were some sections that dominated most like Himachal GK, Indian National Movement etc. Here is the distribution of Questions section wise:


Ancient History + Medieval History + Culture
  07
Indian National Movement + Modern History 
+ Gandhi's Studies
  27
Indian Polity
  08
Geography + Environment + Biodiversity
  18
Economic & Social Development etc
  08
Science + Tech
  05
Current Events (of One Year )
  08
Himachal Pradesh GK
  34
Misc
  05
Total   120


Sections Like Himachal Pradesh GK, Ancient + Culture + Modern History + Indian National Movement, Geo+ etc Dominated the Paper and As always HPPSC's NT paper mainly asks history part more so those who have better preparation in this part will do better than others. There were very less questions from Science and Sports sections this year. Apart from that this year they asked more factual based questions than previous year. Overall paper was Moderate and tricky, for the First timers it may be a kind of shocking experience but for the experienced players it was Easier and satisfying. 


How Many Will Qualify for Mains:


Total Vacancies : 09 x 20 times = 180 Total Candidates

General Category : 04 x 20 = 80 Candidates

SC Category : 01 x 20 = 20 Candidates

ST Category : 02 x 20 = 40 Candidates

OBC Category : 01 x 20  = 20 Candidates

Ex Servicemen of HP : 01 x 20 = 20 Candidates



Why Cut off Will Increase This Year :

There are two reasons of increasing Cut off this year :

1. Lesser Number of Seats
2. Some Direct Easy questions, some factual based questions, Overall Exam this year was Easier than last year.

So these are the factors behind the increase in the Cut off.

Possible Cut off Scenario :

General Category : 75-85
ST Category : 60-65
SC Category : 70-75
OBC Category : 70-75
Ex Serviceman: 60-65



Although Cut off can Go higher or lower than this analysis, but relatively this year cut off will rise by 8-10 marks in each category. This is not my personal thought but I asked many candidates (Specially Senior Players) and came to the conclusion that cut off will definitely rise. But No need to panic about the cut offs now, this exam is over, So concentrate on the Next Exams.

(With in 15-20 days commission will release the answer keys and then if you will have doubts on any questions and answers you can submit authentic proof to them.)

Till then You can also Share Your Experiences, Expected marks and questions here, A healthy discussions is allowed and All the best to all of you.

  3. I think the paper this time was easy than the last time...but ther 10-15 tricky questions.....and 5-10 questions which were from some rare sources of hppsc.......cutoff should be around 90-95 for gen..

    ReplyDelete
  4. I gave this exam for the first time. When i read the question paper for the first time, i was 100% sure about 10-12 answers Only . Then I started the tukkar approach and guessed answers for all questions. Now, I am eagerly waiting for the answer key as I want to know how much i scored in the TUKKAR Game (Not the NT Exam).Wish me Luck guys...

      m scoring 79/110 expecting 82-83 in total.can i start preparing for mains

      Delete
    2. Cut off will be there between 75-85 for General category because when official keys will be out they will surprise all and remember people always expect more but in reality they get less. So wait till the declaration of answer keys, soon after picture will become clear. So don't worry, just Chill.

  6. m scoring 82 and m also not sure of clearing pre. above 90 score is rear due to 30-40 tricky questions..due to less no of post and only 80 are selected in general category. score b/w 80-85 can be scored by easily by serious candidates..thus i think cut off lies above 80.candidates scoring above 83 should start preparing mains.

    ReplyDelete

  19. finally, after searching all answers of naib tehsildar preliminary, I believe cut off for general between 70 -80, since many questions were tricky, when answer keys will come it will amaze many. hat's of to khadubhai he suggested this first.

  21. sorry, no idea about cdpo, since I m already a government employe so don't appear in contract jobs, but 1 thing is for sure, usually people post score higher than what they are expecting, just in comparison to what others have posted, so be positive

    ReplyDelete
  22. tricky questions in naib tehsildar preliminary. What is the proposed growth target in draft
    approach to the 12 th five year plan? When was the mid day meal scheme launched
    in India in primary schools? Which private sector bank set up in 1985? Who among the following was a pupil of
    Ramanuja? When was chief commissioner replaced by
    Lieutenant Governor in Himachal Pradesh?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Vikram g..cdpo official key is out. .so i don't think so anyone going to bluff about marks..

    ReplyDelete
  24. yes I know answer keys are out. ok I share my hpas preliminary 2013 experience with all of you, in mains I met with someone who's score 202, although many of my friends(not qualified) were posting 210+ after answer keys were out

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mine was 226 and i was qualified. .
    one of my friend scored 202 he wasn't in..i agree with u.

    ReplyDelete
  26. About cdpo main exam I think most of the candidates are scoring between 80-90 in GS paper. It means one can take a lead of max 10 marks in this exam. On the other hand in the paper of essay one could take a lead of even 20 marks. Therefore for me essay is much more important than GS, no doubt one must also have a good competitive score in GS as well.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Essay writing going to play important role..

    ReplyDelete
  28. M SCORING 197 IN GENERAL CATEGORY AND I QUALIFIED HAS PRE 2013.ALSO I KNW CANDIDATES WITH 194 WHO QUALIFY.I THINK PRE CUT OFF IS 194.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Don't know candidates bluff or they don't know how to count marks...some candidates take 1/3rd as negative marking but they don't add it's 1/3rd of marks alloted to that question which means 2/3rd or .66

    ReplyDelete
  30. GREAT the one who has posted 197 score in has preliminary, since such true submission helps freshers to access and prohbit overattempting, also I believe who is scoring round about 200 would be intelligent enough to calculate marks after reducing negative.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Vikram g first of all 197 marks is not possible. .toh jo 197 le rahe hain..unhe hi nhi pata 197 ho hi nhi sakte marks. Isme even number mein hi aaeynge. Single point also matters in this exam.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. sir ji,calculation krni to mujhe 10th standard me hi aa gyi thi.shayad apko dobara sikhni pade.even me oand odd dono me marks ho sakte hain.1 scored 196.66 thats why i wrote 197.nd i knw even 10 candidates who are qualified with around 194-195.193 wale candidates not cleared.there is some authentication thats why i wrote here.

      Delete
    2. sir mein apko wahi bol raha hun. single point matters in this exam. this competition is not of hundred candidates. when thousands are sitting in exam , 0.66 marks also plays an important role. candidate with 196.66 marks will in and 196 will not...if someone is scoring 197.32 he will say i am getting 198 but that is wrong. there is huge difference between 197.32 and 198. 2-3 candidates ishi mein aa jaeynge and then 197.32 candidate will say i got this much marks but still out.

      Delete
    3. As per my sources HPAS 2013 Prelims Cut off was Around 195-196 but may be it was less than that but now its not worth discussing. Every year cutoffs keep rising and falling because of the level of difficulty of the paper and No of the total posts, Don't worry We will know the cut off of prelims, mains after the HPAS declares the final result. I think HPAS Mains result will be out in December end and before the next prelims we will have all the cut off details. SO just chill and Keep studying.

  34. my dear friends, i hv gone thru this site. everyone is worried about cut off. one shud prepare for mains, it will benefit u under all circumstances. better for mains..& best for next NT/HAS/TWO/CDPO pre. (in case of failure). So stop this discussion and ...u better know wat to do....

    ReplyDelete
  56. Gen. { i was expecting 70, and as per answer key also 70 } Chances seems to be dim though.

    ReplyDelete
  57. yes, answer keys would have rarely surprised anyone, but I still believe there may be 30 -40 candidates scoring 75+or some even 85 + amongst them, remember still a good number of candidate who will have a chance below 75. so remain hopeful and remember preparation for naib tehsildar mains will help in has preliminary 2014

  66. Khadubhai, your final verdict on the cut-off for Gen!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Those Who have scored more than 70 in Gen Category they must start preparing for the mains.
    While in ST above 50 must start preparations
    In SC 60 Plus and in OBC above 55 must start their preparation for the Mains.
