UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Exam 2019 Answer Key
The ClearIAS answer key for UPSC Prelims 2019 will be released on this link.
Even though we were initially trying to release the key on the exam day itself, we postponed the key release to a few more hours.
This is because ClearIAS does not want to rush with key preparation, and would like to ensure that the key remains as accurate as possible.
For research and proof-reading, we need more time on some confusing/ambiguous questions.
When the key is ready, we will email you.
Mark your answers in our UPSC Prelims 2019 re-take exam (109PT), and know your score, relative performance, and expected cut-off score based on our key.
We will be publishing a detailed analysis and question-by-question comparison PDF within 2-3 days.
