One has to be at least a graduate from any recognized university to appear for CSAT.

    • India and world Geography
    • Indian Polity and Governance
    • Economic and Social Development
    • General issues on Environment ecology

    The other paper is purely based on Aptitude and covers various types of Aptitude and also English comprehensions.

    Duration of CSAT

    Both Paper 1 and Paper 2 of CSAT are of two hours duration and each paper contains questions of 200 marks each. The questions are objective type and alternatives are provided for each question. Only one alternative is the correct answer. The number of questions is not fixed as of yet. However CSAT 2011 had 100 questions in Paper 1 and 80 questions in Paper 2.
