Essay Paper

The candidates are advised to prepare for this paper keeping some major themes in mind. Besides their preparation for the contents, aspirants are also advised to polish their basic skills for essay-writing. The idea behind the essay paper is to test the candidate’s grasp of his subject, its relevance to the current issues, and to his ability to think constructively and to present his ideas concisely, logically and effectively.

The vastness and the nature of the GS syllabus indeed pose an up-hill challenge before aspirants. The two main challenges we have already discussed here are viz; collection of study material from a diverse range of sources and secondly, to use these materials to suit the interdisciplinary needs of the syllabus. This requires maturity of mind and proper guidance. The trick is to read about all the current happenings and important topics and then relate them in a point wise format to frame the structure of any essay topic before writing it.

Each year a pattern of topics is followed such as Democracy, Administration, Society, Culture
