In the 2024 UPSC preliminary exams, the AI application PadhAI scored over 170 out of 200 marks, completing the exam in just seven minutes. This performance, far surpassing the typical qualifying score of under 100, potentially places PadhAI in the top 10 nationally. Developed by IITians, the app took the exam in a public setting at Delhi's The Lalit hotel, with the event live-streamed. PadhAI's answers were compared with those of AI models from major tech companies. The app, available on the Google Play Store, offers features such as news summaries, smart PYQ search, doubt clarification, and interactive answer explanations.
