Uttar Pradesh Subordinate Services Selection Commission (UPSSSC) conducted the Preliminary Eligibility Test (PET) 2021 on August 24, 2021, for Group C posts. Recently, UPSSSC authorities have uploaded question papers on the official website upsssc.gov.in. Whereas, unofficial answer keys and analysis have already been released on the internet by various coaching institutes, in the form of videos on YouTube or PDF documents. Hence, those who appeared for the UPSSSC PET 2021 exam can use these unofficial answer keys to determine their tentative scores.
To download the UPSSSC PET 2021 question papers, candidates must visit the official website upsssc.gov.in. On the homepage of the website, click on the moving flash link “Click here to view Question Paper Booklet Under advt no.1-exam /2021 PET”. By doing so, a Google Drive link will open in a new tab. On this page, candidates will find two folders with the names “Shift 1 (QP)” and “Shift 2 (QP)”. Candidates now have to double click on the relevant folder, to get their question papers.
The best way to calculate tentative marks is by downloading the question booklet from the official website upsssc.gov.in. Then, candidates can check the websites or youtube channels for UPSSSC PET 2021 answer key of shift 1 or shift 2. While the official one is not available, candidates are advised to use reliable or recognised websites for answer keys.
After downloading the question paper, candidates can use the unofficial answer key to calculate their tentative score. This score may or may not differ from the one calculated using the official answer key. As per reports, the UPSSSC 2021 PET answer key (official) is likely to release soon on the official portal. Candidates might be given the option to raise objections against the answer key, similar to the system followed in 2019.
UPSSSC authorities will incorporate all these objections and release a final answer key later on, likely after a month’s time. Around the same time, the PET 2021 exam results will be released. These results will be calculated based on the final answer key and hence, may differ from the tentative score. However, it may lie in the same range as the tentative score, if calculated correctly by the candidate.
