MPSC Examination Pattern (revised)

Like the UPSC civil services exam, the MPSC state services exam is also conducted in three stages:

  1. Prelims
  2. Mains
  3. Interview

A candidate has to clear one stage in order to be eligible for the subsequent stage, i.e, if he/she clears the prelims, he/she moves onto the mains, clearing which he/she would be summoned for the final stage (interview) of the MPSC exam.

MPSC Preliminary Exam Pattern

This exam consists of two papers, both of which are objective in nature. Take a look at the following table for the details of the prelims exam. Please note that both papers are compulsory.

Paper No. No. of Questions Total Marks Standard Medium Duration Nature of Paper
Paper I 100 200 Degree English & Marathi 2 hours Objective
Paper II 80 200 Mix of Degree and School (depends on topic – refer below) English & Marathi 2 hours Objective
  • Candidates should note that there is negative marking for incorrect answers.
  • For every incorrect answer, the candidate will be penalised 1/4 of the marks allocated to that question.
  • For every question where a candidate has given two options as answers, he/she will be attracting a negative marking of 25 per cent of the total marks assigned to that question.
  • The questions on decision making (Paper-II) do not attract negative marks***************** if incorrectly answered. These generally comprise question numbers from 74 to 80 in Paper-II.
  • In MPSC, both Paper I and II are counted for the merit ranking for qualifying for the MPSC mains.

Important: In the IAS exam, the UPSC CSAT paper in Prelims is just a qualifying paper (33% qualifying criteria)

  • The prelims marks are not counted for the final merit list.
  • All the questions are set in English and Marathi except for those questions which are meant to test the candidate’s knowledge of English.

MPSC Interview

Candidates who clear the mains exam are summoned for the MPSC interview. In this round, a panel of the MPSC board assesses the candidate for his/her suitability for the administrative career through a personal discussion. This is more like a personality test where apart from knowledge, the candidate’s attributes such as aptitude, presence of mind, communication skills, etc. are evaluated.

MPSC Mains Exam Pattern [Old]

As of 9th July 2020, the General Studies syllabus of MPSC Mains has been revised.

In the mains exam, there are six compulsory papers. Paper I and Paper II are language papers while Papers 3, 4, 5, and 6 are general studies papers. There are no optional subjects in the MPSC, a change that was made in 2012.
