The Civil Services Examination is divided into two stages: the preliminary examination and the main examination. The preliminary examination is a screening test and its marks are not counted for determining the final order of merit. The main examination is intended to assess the overall intellectual traits and depth of understanding of candidates rather than merely the range of their information and memory.
The syllabus for the Civil Services Examination is vast and covers a wide range of subjects. The Preliminary Examination will test candidates on their general knowledge and aptitude in subjects such as current events, history, polity, economy, and environment etc. The Main Examination will test candidates on their knowledge in the subjects they have chosen as their optional subjects and general studies.
The exam pattern for the Civil Services Examination is also quite challenging. The preliminary examination consists of two objective-type papers, General Studies Paper-I and General Studies Paper-II (CSAT). The Main Examination includes nine papers - one essay paper, 4 general studies papers, two qualifying papers (English and an Indian language) and two papers in the optional subject.
Preparing for the Civil Services Examination is a long and arduous journey that requires a lot of hard work, dedication and perseverance. Candidates should start preparing well in advance and create a study plan that works best for them. They should also focus on developing their writing and comprehension skills. Additionally, staying updated on current affairs and developing a good understanding of the Indian political and economic scenario is important.
In conclusion, the Civil Services Examination is a challenging and competitive exam that requires a lot of preparation and hard work.
