The importance of Mains Test Series and Mains Answer Writing Practice (AWP)
The only thing that distinguishes you from your fellow candidates appearing in the Mains exam is your answer sheet. To get the extra edge, special attention should be given to ensure that your answer sheet stands out from the rest of the candidates.
In the Main exam, the most crucial aspect is to structure your answer well – as per the expectations of the UPSC evaluation standards. You should learn how to write a great answer!
Regarding this, it is highly crucial to get personal feedback from experts who know how to write a great answer. For most candidates, it requires consistent practice under expert guidance to improve their answer quality to match the UPSC standards.
What matters is not your knowledge, but how well you perform in the exam hall!
UPSC Civil Services Mains examination is entirely different when compared to the Prelims. Mains is a subjective written exam while Prelims is an OMR-based objective exam.
The marks of the Main Exam (1750 marks) are counted along with your Interview score (275 marks) to decide your final rank. So, unlike Prelims which are only qualifying, it is extremely important to maximize your marks in the Main Exam. Every mark counts!
Irrespective of your degrees, knowledge, or skills what speaks about you in a UPSC mains exam is your answer sheet. The examiner does not know you; he has access to only your answer booklet and nothing else, and he evaluates each candidate based on what is presented in the answer sheet.
So it is extremely important to frame your answers in the most impressive way, within the prescribed time limit. Knowledge about framing high-quality answers in the main exam is necessary to make your answer sheets stand out.
Proper answer writing practice, a good understanding of the latest UPSC syllabus, and familiarity with current topics are important prerequisites for clearing IAS mains in flying colours. It is with this aim of equipping aspirants with the latest requirements of the UPSC mains exam we conduct the ClearIAS UPSC Mains Test Series as well as ClearIAS UPSC Mains Answer Writing Practice (AWP).
All the best!
