The essay is a crucial component of the UPSC Civil Service Main Examination. It holds significant weightage and can greatly enhance your overall mains score, in conjunction with your optional subject. Several individuals have achieved commendable ranks solely by obtaining a high score in the essay paper, along with decent scores in other subjects.
As you are all aware, the nature and scoring of the Essay paper have changed since the 2021 mains examination. The topics now are primarily philosophical in nature, making essay writing more challenging, and consequently, overall scores have dipped. In previous years, with sufficient efforts, scores of 140 and above, even reaching 150+, could be attained. However, in the past two years, surpassing the 130+ mark has become a formidable task.
