"Write to Learn, Learn to Score"


The essay paper (250 marks) in the civil services main examination is crucial in determining the final outcome/selection and ranking. In CSE 2013 Essay played very crucial Role in Final Selections. In wake of Dismal Performance of Most of the optional Subjects and GS, Performance and good score in Essay is Must to get a place in Civil Services.
It is decisive because there is no specialization in an essay and so no aspirant can claim expertise, unlike Optional subjects & G.S. Essay paper does not have a source of definitive information as in the case of general studies or optional subjects. This constitutes a challenge. It is vital to understand that an essay is a reflection of the personality - ideas, views, analysis, assessments and inferences, values, attitude, aptitude, orientation and communication (written) abilities, all the attributes that are wanted by UPSC in an aspirant.
