How CSAT in Punjab PCS different from UPSC CSAT

Punjab PCS CSAT is very much similar to the UPSC CSAT. Both examinations have Comprehension, Interpersonal skills including communication skills, logical reasoning and analytical ability, General mental ability, English language comprehension (Class X level). The only difference is that CSAT in Punjab PCS does not include decision making and problem solving.

The only difference between UPSC CSAT and Punjab PCS CSAT is that Punjabi language comprehension is added to the latter. Besides, General Mental ability in UPSC CSAT includes Basic numeracy (numbers and their relations, orders of magnitude, etc.) (Class X level), Data interpretation (charts, graphs, tables, data sufficiency etc. - Class X level) while the same section in Punjab PCS CSAT comprises basic numerical skills, numbers and magnitudes, percentages, numerical relation appreciation, data analysis, graphic presentations, charts, tables and spreadsheets.

The Objectives
The Paper-2(Civil Services Aptitude Test) is introduced with the objective of testing the aptitude of the candidates. The Punjab PCS CSAT paper is designed to test the decision-making ability of the candidate. Moreover, it also looks for the ethical and moral traits in a candidate.

NO BOOK CAN COVER THE SYLLABUS OF GENERAL STUDIES.the topic like green house gases were not covered last year. If anybody wants to publish book with 100% surety then attention must be upon basic fundamentals of science. I covered same from an Institute ASHWANI INSTITUTE OF IAS,IPS COMPETITIONS.
