    Re: Last 10 years papers for IAS exam?

    Syllabus and pattern, prev years question papers everything is available on UPSC website. However you will not be able to find 10 years ques papers on the website. You may search for the same however the easiest way is to purchase it from the nearest book store as the set of 10-15 years IAS papers (options wise) are easily available in the market.

    UPSCconducts civil services exam every year and the exam comprises of three levelsi.e.
    1.Prelims exam (objective type, two papers of 200 marks each; GS and CSAT ; onlyfor screening purpose i.e. marks obtained are not considered for the finalmerit list),
    2. Mainsexam (essay type, 9 papers of 2000 marks; paper I & II of two optionalsubjects 300 x 4; paper I & II of GS 300 x 2; essay of 200 marks; besidesthere are two language paper, English and one national language like Hindi,Marathi, Bengali, Urdu etc)
    3.Personality test/interview of 300 marks
    Mains andinterview marks are combined to prepare the final list. You need to pass inPrelims to write mains exam, subsequently you need to clear mains exam for thethird round. Generally 12 to 13 times the no. of vacancies are taken for the mainsexam and 3 times for the final interview round.

    You can find the question papers from 2009-2011 in the website of UPSC.For the papers prior to that,you can get in market as there are several books.You can have books from Made Easy publications as they publish books with solutions also for IAS or IES as well.
    The pattern of the prelims exam has changed from 2011 so you should follow the pattern of 2011 and not of earlier times.Although the question levels are same but optional subject objective has been removed.Mains is the same as usual.

    Dear Friend, Previous year question papers for last two year is available on UPSC website while for last ten years question papers you will have to look for other sources like in market or other websites. In market it is available with solution but it would be better if you prepare solutions of those question yourself rather than looking at market solution.

    dear you should have mentioned the subject of which you want the question papers of.
    as in the IAS exam , you have to select two subjects of your own choice and then you have to give the exam in that same subject.
