Prelims cum Mains Integrated Approach To Clear IAS

Prelims and Mains, though two separate stages of UPSC Civil Services Exam, are not water-tight compartments. Main Exam presents a bigger picture than Prelims as it touches 15+ subjects inside the 4 GS papers – GS1, GS2, GS3 and GS4. It includes many topics prescribed in the Prelims syllabus too. This raises two questions : Should candidates study mains and prelims separately? Will an approach focused on Mains stage, automatically let the candidate sail through the Preliminary Stage too?

The answer to these questions lies in understanding the nature of Prelims and Mains questions. Preliminary stage, since being objective in nature touches the conceptual knowledge on certain traditional subjects like History, Geography, Polity, Economy etc. But mains exam, being a subjective exam, the questions are of analytical nature and often revolves around current issues. But without a fundamental conceptual knowledge on things around the world, a candidate will not be able to frame a good answer. So building the fundamentals is the first step in mains too, which very well is in tune with the Prelims requirement.
