PCS Answer Key

PCS Answer Key wait is over. Finally the PCS Preliminary Examination is over today (12th day of December 2015). The mood of the aspirants is quite good in terms of how the PCS Pre papers were drafted by the PPSC, which is a big relief from what happened last year. The aspirants are satisfied with the question paper, which is a big change from what the mood was yesterday as well as in the morning; with many students not able to download their Admit cards. (The PPSC site was log jammed). But in the end they came through.

The questions in the GS Paper were distributed quite well and the aspirant who had the holistic view of his/her preparations would have done well. Even after the strenuous night and the stress of not able to get the admit cards in time, the aspirants have shown great grit and have performed well. This will further to improve the cut-off this year.

Now next will be the wait for the answer key for the paper. Well you can download the answer Key from the link below.Since the question paper was in different Sets, we have uploaded the Answer Key in such a format so that irrespective of the Question Set you would be able to find the correct answers.
