Take a look at the in-depth analysis of the paper below and also note what the experts have to say for the UPSC Mains GS-1 paper preparation on the last day.
UPSC Mains Essay Paper 1: In-depth analysis by an expert
The UPSC Hands Essay paper just happens to be one of those exams in the series that helps candidates get the maximum marks to boost their combined total. This time, the essay was, as always, a bit tricky for those who attended. Overall, this would be a difficult document as there were many topics that were difficult to cover.
One of the subjects was “Your perception of me is a reflection of you, my reflection of you is an awareness of me”. Another was The philosophy of the absence of desire is utopian while materialism is a chimera. This means that UPSC has decided this year to become philosophical. Many candidates seemed to go with these two topics in Section A.
Mehek, a candidate outside the Noida center, said: “The paper was as always easy for those who fully understood the topics and wrote on it, otherwise if we were out of step, UPSC would not mark us.”
One topic that confused many was The real is rational and the rational is real.
The topics in section B were:
- The hand that cradles the cradle rules the world
- What is research, but a blind date with knowledge
- History repeats itself first as a tragedy, then as a farce
- There are best practices to best practices.
For those of you who don’t know, the essay is 250 points and should be completed in three hours. It must be written only in the authorized language chosen by the candidate by choosing his writing medium. If a candidate writes in another medium, he cannot be judged.
Applicants must also respect the word limit. Last year, contestants were given a choice of philosophical, technological, and saying-based essays. This year again, candidates had the choice between subjects touching on human life and something political.
The tests are completely subjective from an examiner’s point of view, all experts say. They should be written with a basic theme that can convince the reader to get the most marks.
UPSC Mains 2021: Last Minute GS -1, GS-2 Prep Tips
Anyone who took today’s exam must also take tomorrow’s exams.
The article GS-1 is about Indian heritage and culture, history and geography of the world and society. Applicants need only refresh at the last minute what they have already studied. They should only and only revise the points on which they were confused because the program is too large to be revised on the last day.
Additionally, applicants should be aware that drafting last-minute responses should not be attempted under any circumstances. Leaving all that behind, they just have to choose topics like dates, major events, history topics that need to be reviewed.
UPSC Mains GS Paper 2 is governance, constitution, politics, social justice and international relations. This is a subjective 250-point article assessed for merit. This means that the grades would be added to the final score. Questions are on a slightly easier note in this topic. Students should try to complete the entire article and stick to the word count. This suggestion from our experts is very valuable as many applicants complain about the length of the paper.
Candidates should try to eat light before exams and get good sleep. Remember, this is only a test and not your life. All my wishes!
