UPSC CSE Prelims 2024: An Artificial intelligence-based app, PadhAI, cracked the UPSC 2024 exam, and achieved more than 170 out of 200 marks. This is higher than the usual general score, which usually remains under 100.  The score places PadhAI's score in the top 10 nationally, if not ranked 1, as per the official notice. 

This app was developed by a team of IITians who took this year's UPSC Prelims on June 16 just after the exam and solved the entire paper within just seven minutes.

This event was conducted in the presence of distinguished guests from education, the UPSC coaching community, and media personnel in The Lalit Hotel, New Delhi. The event was live-streamed at and YouTube, where the questions and answers are publicly available. The program was kept completely transparent. This was done to check the PadhAI's strength.

All the AI's answers were compared with broad AI models commercially available from big tech companies such as  OpenAI, Microsoft & Google by using answer keys released by top coaching institutes.

This is the first such event, not just for UPSC in India, but for any exam in the world, that an AI tool’s capability to take an actual exam and ace it, is showcased live in a public setting, the press release said. 

Karttikeya Mangalam, CEO, PadhAI said, ''This is the highest score achieved in the last 10 years of UPSC exams''. “We believe that while our event is first of its kind, in a few years, such events will become commonplace as several educational institutions race to solve papers quickly and precisely with AIs”, he added.
