In Overall this paper was Moderate. History, Polity, Geogrpagy, Uttarakhand GK etc Sections Dominated this Section. History part was a bit difficult while Geography was Moderate to tough, Science, Economic parts was also moderate. Sports, Polity, Current Events, Uttarakhand GK parts were easy. Most of the questions were very straight and factual questions.

Possible Attempts : 100-120

Good Score : 100-120

If we see the level of this paper it was a cakewalk for the serious students because most questions were quite straight forward, So more then 100 marks in this exam is possible easily.

Paper 2 : General Aptitude Test :This paper was also moderate. While first paper was a total cakewalk but this one was a bit tricky. It consisted Logical Reasoning, Mental ability, Maths, Decision making, communication skills, English and Hindi part. 

Logical Reasoning and Maths Parts were the Tricky parts, there existed few questions which seems easy but they were not so easy, so the key will lie in these parts. Other parts like Mental ability, Decision making, communication skills, English and Hindi parts were very easy. 

Possible Attempts : 70-85

Good Score : 100-125

This paper will decide the fate of aspirants because most of the aspirants did well in the GS paper.

Overall Good Score : 210-230

Likely UKPSC Prelims Cut off Score : 200-215

All the Best...
