HOW TO WRITE A GOOD ANSWER IN UPSC MAINS EXAMIn civil services examination It is just not enough to know all the facts and information but the most important thing to be kept in mind is to write an answer which has a clear and a logical frame, which presents information in a clear and concise manner, which does not contain any irrelevant or piling up of information, which is interesting and able to hold one's attention.So the next logical step is to know how to write a good answer. The first step is to prepare the framework where one can list all ideas, thoughts and facts and write them down. It is important to adopt an answering style which is natural, original and to the point. Emphasis should be given to the kind of language used, one which is simple and clear without unnecessary use of nouns and verbs. Use of archaic and fancy words or language should be avoided at all costs. Care should be taken to avoid grammatical mistakes which will give a negative opinion however good the answer may be. Last but not the least, it is very important to have a good and a legible handwriting. During the course of ias preparation in ahmedabad at chahal academy we make our students write the answers which will help them in upsc exam preparation in ahmedabad.For best preparation of ias exam in ahmedabad, join chahal academy.Regular and weekend batches for ias preparation are available in ahmedabad at chahal academy.ART OF ANSWER WRITING IN IAS MAINS EXAMINATION:While writing an answer in upsc mains examination about the effective part of the question. Chahal Academy believes this is different from the Introduction, Body and Conclusion of any answer which is its structure. The effective part means which angle or perspective do they wish the answers to be seen. The facts remain the same but the presentation differs. So enumerate means represent in numbers and views means your opinion on those very numbers or facts. Chahal Academy will explain to you the meaning and application of some of the terms that appear repeatedly in questions in the IAS mains exam. We are not going by facts and the sentences may be funny at times. We are simply trying to drive the point home what we teach in ias coaching center in ahmedabad.Enumerate:Simply list the points about the topic and don't give detailed explanation. Narrate:'Early to late' this is how narration occurs. So, temporal (time related) sequencing is critical. You can even predict the course in future if asked. Define:This simply means write the definition. A bit of memory helps here as you should try to reproduce verbatim and at least include all possible keywords and phrases which you know are essential parts of that particular definition. Evaluate / Assess / Examine:Detailed explanations are required. Write in details whatever you know, include one to two lines of introduction followed by three to four lines in favour and three to four lines against the given topic. One to two lines of implications if any, and then limitations of the concepts and finally the conclusion in two to three lines needs to be added. Opinion / Comment / Views:Whenever your opinion is asked, it should be full of optimism and your answer should be full of zeal and enthusiasm. Give constructive opinions with optimistic, future oriented and progressive ideas. However your opinions should be largely acceptable.Purpose / Goal / Objective / Target:What is to be achieved, what is the purpose, the goal, the objectives or the targets?Analyse:When it comes to analyse, it is the same as evaluation, assessment or examination plus your opinion is also needed here. So, once you give your opinion it means you are interpreting the event according to your knowledge apart from detailed explanations.Discuss:A frequently used term, it means you can write whatever you know but the most important thing is to write as if you are talking to the examiner. A differing opinion can be used. Describe:This is the easiest thing to do and just theoretical knowledge is required here. You have to write basically its parts, what it is made up of, constituents, characteristics and attributes. Critically:An important term and a favourite of UPSC. Whenever it is asking Critically Examine, Critically Comment or Critically Analyse just remember that you have to write both pros and cons and give a fair, unbiased or value loaded judgement. It should always give a feeling of closure.Elucidate / Elaborate / Expand / Exemplify:These are more or less similar words but not exactly the same. Elucidate means make it clear with examples to make it clear. Elaborate and Expand mean detailed explanations. Exemplify means - give a typical example of that particular category. Please include contemporary affairs, connections or current affairs. Implications / Consequences / Outcomes / Results:Write about the possible scenario or impact of the event in question. Contrast / Distinguish:It means write differences not similarities. You can write similarities as well as differences if asked to Compare and Contrast.Significance / Importance:What happens because it exists or what happen if it doesn't exist. Justify / Advocate:Here you have to argue in favour of and write favourable comments as far as reasonably possible.chahal academy provides best preparation of ias exam in ahmedabad, Regular and weekend batches for ias preparation are available in ahmedabad at chahal academy.

How to Write Answers in IAS Mains examAs we all know that civil services main exam consists of descriptive type of questions. It focuses on testing the candidate on various levels. The time limit for the essay paper is 3 hrs. without a word limit, but for the optional paper, there are questions with specific word limit like 250 words in optional subjects and 250 words, 150 words words in general studies. The candidate then has to prepare himself to answer all types of questions. The most important thing to be kept in mind is the time constraint. Therefore it becomes necessary to answer these questions quickly and effectively and in minimum words.One common doubt that students have is with regard to the style of answering questions, whether to adopt the paragraph or the point style of answering questions. Though there is no set rule, it is wise to adopt a style depending on the question asked. If the question says to discuss, analyse or critically examine, it would be better to answer the question the paragraph format. On the other hand, if the question asks you to list the advantages or give reasons for/ against etc., it is better to go in for the point format of answering.STYLE OF ANSWERING QUESTIONS in IAS examFor this it is very important to understand the question first. Depending on what the question is, whether one is asked to "discuss", "elucidate", "explain”, “critically Appreciate" or "give reasons for and against", the answer should be written Accordingly because it is only through the examinee's style of answering questions that one can assess his or her originality of thought and analytical abilities. The question should be read properly, in fact the question paper should be read thoroughly in the first five or ten minutes of the exam and then one should decide on the questions which are to be answered first. Time should also be given to frame the answer so that there is no confusion later on.A good way to write effective and precise answers is to practise writing out answers. our answers should present the facts and concepts in an interesting way and should never read like a passage from a book. It is best to use simple English and avoid flowy and decorative language which takes our attention away from the original facts and our opinions about a given topic. Making a practice of writing out answers is especially useful in managing the time limit set for the exam and to write the best possible answer in the allotted time It not only improves one's style of expression, but also one gets used to the time and word limits.Join our new upsc batch in ahmedabad for pre and mains ias coaching..Admission open for new ias preparation batch in ahmedabad at chahal academy.

HOW TO READ NEWS PAPER MORE EFFECTIVELY for IAS Exam PreparationMany people do not know how to read the newspaper and what news to read. The doubt is natural for freshers who are just in to the field of civil service exam preparation. Also covering the entire set of news given in a single newspaper itself is very time consuming and for a civil service aspirant it is not worth the time spend. So the question is how to select from different news in view of the fact that a number of questions for prelims and mains is directly taken from new articles in different leading must to read news papers like The Hindu, The Indian Express etc. But to know what news to read and digg deep is always a confusion for a fresher who feels that every news is important and feels that like leaving a golden oppurtunity when he leaves a single news. Also for a civil service aspirant time is the constraint always and hence he has to get the maximum result in minimum time so he cannot spend all his time in current affairs instead there a lot of conventional topics to cover.First thing to note when you see a news paper is that things in the front page are the ones that are very important because that is why they have found place in the front page. So the news in the front page are very important read them thoroughly and read its follow up in the inner pages. So next it is better to read the last page than reading the consecutive next page. This is because the consecutive page has regional news which does not have that importance as is confined only to the region. The last page usually has many important news from different fields of science which often appear in the UPSC exam paper. Read the science and technology related news in the last page while avoiding lousy gossips about celebrities. If you have time you can read else leave it. So start from the last page backwards, so the next section is sports. Sports is a section that people usually avoid while preparing hectically for the civil services and civil service aspirants other than those with passion for sports rarely read sport section. But it is important to read sections related to doping, technology enable sports administration like the Hawk s eye etc. Next you have the business or economy page which is very important from the point of view of civil service exam. But there are enough material to avoid in that section too. News about corporate profits, their merger, acquisition and other business plan and largely news about regulators in the financial sector other than the RBI are things that can be avoided from the UPSC point of view. Next you have international page which is also important considering its desirability in UPSC exams. News relating to multilateral and international agencies and institutions and that news that have a direct or indirect bearing on India are the topics that needs attention in the international page. From the national page that is the next page you will have to read all news other than the comments from politicians on different topics. From that too, you will have questions in the UPSC exam which will not be related to the comments of different politicians instead it will be based on the underlying issues on which the comments were made. The editorial and open editorial pages are important. All that comes in the editorial are must to read while those in the open editorial are selective. The regional issues also need attention but which should be given according to time and relevance considerations.So reading newspapers is important while more important is to read it more intelligently and efficiently as reading news alone can fetch you a decent marks in prelims and mains if you are a studied person.At Chahal Academy we provide editorials of The Hindu and Indian express to our students on a daily basis without fail.Monthly current affairs magazines and discussion on current affairs is also taken up in class on weekly basis. This helps in upsc exam preparation.very effectively and is the secret of our results in civil services exam. That is why we are the best upsc coaching classes in Ahmedabad and one of the best ias coaching class in gujarat.

Can a candidate write the Civil Service (Main) Examination in English and take the interview in Hindi or any other Indian language?Ans. If a candidate opts an Eighth schedule language for the CS (Main) Examination he will have the option to take the interview in same language or in English.Q.11 After the written examination, on what criterion is the answer books sent for evaluation? Is it on Roll no. basis or based on centre of examination? That is, will a particular examiner/set of examiners get to evaluate answer books only of a particular center or a particular group of Roll nos.?Ans. Mixing of the answer books received from different venues is done before sending them for evaluation. Computer-based randomized fictitious code no. is given to each answer-book before evaluation.Q.12. Are answer books segregated/sorted based on community of the candidate?Ans. This is not done at any stage of the evaluation process.Q.13. Is it likely that my evaluated performance suffers because my answer books were evaluated by a 'strict' examiner, while another candidate benefits as his answer books were evaluated by a 'liberal' examiner?Ans. The Paper Setter, who is an eminent person in his field, normally acts as the Head Examiner, and wherever the number of candidates in a particular subject is very large, the Commission appoints Additional Examiners for valuation of answer books.To achieve uniformity in valuation, where more than one Examiner is involved, the Commission arranges a meeting of the Head Examiner with the Additional Examiners after the Examination is over. At this stage, they discuss thoroughly the question paper, the appropriate answers and decide the standard of evaluation. To further bring about uniformity of assessment inter se the Examiners, the following procedure is undertaken:The Head Examiner conducts a sample survey of answer books of each Additional Examiner to verify whether the uniform standards of evaluation evolved in the meeting of Examiners have actually been followed. Depending on the standard adopted by the Additional Examiner, the Head Examiner may confirm the awards without any change if the Examiner has correctly followed the standard decided upon, or may carry out upward / downward moderation as considered necessary to ensure maximum possible degree of uniformity in the evaluation process.Therefore, the aspect of inter examiner variation in standards of evaluation in a Paper affecting candidates' performance is taken care of adequately.Q.10. Can I know the 'question-wise' marks awarded to me for a paper?Ans. In a competitive examination, what is relevant is not the absolute performance of a candidate, but his/her relative performance that in fact determines whether the candidate qualifies and , if so, his/her position in the merit list. Accordingly, as already explained above, the evaluation process does not end after initial evaluation by an Examiner. Moderation, wherever applied, is on the total award initially given (the so-called 'raw marks') and not on question-wise basis. Therefore, once the evaluation process is complete, neither 'raw marks' nor 'question-wise' marks subsist. What subsists is the candidate's total score in a paper awarded at the end of the evaluation process and this award is normally made available to the candidate in due course on the Commission's website through a query-based application software.Q.14. Are there any open Examinations where subject-wise/paper wise marks of each candidate are not made accessible/available to him/her?Ans. Yes; in the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination This is because the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination is simply and purely a shortlisting/elimination exercise to select candidates for the Main Examination and as such the scores obtained in this Examination are not communicated to candidates.Q.15. Can I know the marks of other candidates who took the Examination from the Commission?Ans. It is important to remember though a Constitutional Body, the Commission's role is advisory. The Examinations it conducts are for recommending candidates to Government based on clear requisitions received from Government. Therefore, as regards those who have finally qualified in an Examination, the detailed results, application/biodata forms of all such are sent to the concerned Ministry/Department for all further processing. Therefore, once these results are sent to the concerned Ministry/Department, the concerned Ministry/Department becomes the natural and proper custodian of these results and it would only perhaps be proper for queries pertaining to the results of qualified candidates to be addressed to the concerned Ministry/Department.As regards candidates who do not qualify finally, the right of information of a citizen has to be balanced against the right of privacy of an unsuccessful candidate who has not qualified for appointment to public service. The feedback received by the Commission shows that there are candidates who do not want their marks to be in the public domain. While a case can be made out for having the marks of those who qualified finally for public appointment in the public domain, no such public interest argument can be invoked for candidates who have not qualified and there is no reason why such candidates' scores should willy-nilly be forced into the public domain.Q.16. If the overall marks of two or more candidates are equal, how is relative merit between such candidates decided?Ans. 'Tie-breaking' principles listed below are applied to decide inter se merit among candidates having the same overall marks.Candidate securing more marks in the Compulsory Papers and the Personality Test put together is to be ranked higher;In case where the marks mentioned at (i) above are equal, the candidate senior in age is to be ranked higher; andIn case where the (i) and (ii) above are same, then the candidate getting more marks in the compulsory papers is to be ranked higher.Q.14. Wherever evaluation standards are set or moderation is applied, are these different for different mediums (languages) in which a particular subject/paper Examination is written?Ans. No. The evaluation standards/moderation for a Paper are not medium-specific. In other words, if the Rules of the Exam provide that a Paper can be written in any of , say, English/Hindi/a recognized Indian language; then the medium in which a candidate writes the Paper will not be a factor in determining evaluation standards or the moderation to be applied.Q.15. Is it possible that evaluation/assessment could be affected by the knowledge of a candidate's identity?Ans. No. Before evaluation, the Roll no. written on every answer book is detached and computer-based randomized fictitious code no. is given. At no stage of the evaluation process ( including the moderation stage) is the actual Roll no./identity of the candidate known to any of the Examiners/officials associated in the process.

The candidate is tested not only for his/her intelligence but also for his/her overall personality development, his/her attentiveness, balance of judgement and qualities of honesty, integrity and leadership. Therefore preparation for the Interview requires proper planning.The selectors look out for some attributes in the candidate and decide whether he/she is suited for a career in civil services. For this, the candidate should have a positive attitude, should have an alert mind with quick reflexes, should be free from any sort of prejudice, should be good at making quick decisions and should have the ability to act under stress and to handle difficult situations.Preparation for the Interview is a continuous process. This involves a wide reading of books, journals, magazines and at least two newspapers.One should try to improve his/her conversational skills with the right pronunciation. The candidate should be prepared to answer questions on his background, hobbies and extracurricular activities.It is a good idea to discuss current affairs and recent issues with friends. One good way of rehearsing possible questions would be to have mock interviews and discussion groups. The candidate should make a self-analysis of his strengths and weaknesses and make a conscious effort to play on his strengths.Some useful tips for a successful interview at UPSC are:To have a positive body languageTo have a good personal appearance and ensuring the right postureTo answer questions clearly and confidentlyTry to remain calm and composed even when faced with provocative questionsTry not getting into long winded explanations and answer to the point.Things to Be Avoided at the UPSC InterviewAvoid the expression, 'I am sorry.'Avoid conversational cliches, like: 'as you know', 'that's correct', 'of course', 'indeed', 'obviously', etc.Avoid technical jargon. However, if a member continues to probe you in any technical field, you can use technical expressions.Maintain a cheerful disposition. Now and then you can appear serious; but most of the time keep smiling or look cheerful and composed.One caution here: if the board laughs, you should only smile. It is only when you maintain some amount of distance that the board begins to wonder about the depth of your personality.Do not give long introductions. Come straight to the point.Show human concern whenever possible in your answers.You should be logically consistent and analyse things rationally while talking. You are supposed to defend what you say, but with due respect to the views of the board. Stop trying to defend an answer if it becomes difficult to do so logically and fairly.Do not make hasty or sweeping generalisations.According to UPSC report, it has been observed that from 1979 onwards, 90 per cent of the candidates who qualify for interview hover around the minimal percentage of 55 per cent that is prescribed for the test. However to be assured of a Class I service, one has to generally obtain about 58 per cent marks. It has been noticed that only those, securing 60 per cent and above are sure of getting a service of their own choice.The figures clearly reveal that the marks in the interview test play a determining role in final selection of candidates.Types of questions asked at the UPSC interview.Relating to your name, any famous personality who has a similar or same name or surnameYour career choice, why you want to opt for the Civil ServicesWhat are your Hobbies, why you pursue such a hobby or questions related to your hobby, so research well on your hobby.Hot topics of recent days are most likely questions that can be asked. So keep reading and watching the news. If the recent headlines have something to do with your subject then specially revise those portions. For example if you are a veterinary doctor, Bird flu may go on to other animal diseases that can infect men. If you are an MBBS, then you might be asked about human to human spread of epidemics or any other epidemics and precautions etc. You may even be asked about the influence of MNC or drug manufacturers responsible for the spread of fear etc. If you are from an economy background, the same topic will veer towards the economic implications of the Bird flu.How you are going to use your specific knowledge (like if you are a doctor, lawyer, engineer etc) in the civil services can be another question that can be asked. Situational questions, like If you were the collector/SP of Varanasi, what would you do after the Bomb Blast?Choice of services, the order of your choice of services can raise questions too.About your institution and related question can be asked like if you have studied at the IIM you may be asked about the rising salaries, if from IGNOU then even about Indira Gandhi and so on.Questions can be asked from your form. You must go through the form you have filled because most questions can arise from there. If you have changed subjects, mentioned anything out of the way, watch out for questions around them. Interviewers can take cue from the form you have filled.Actual questions and answers asked of UPSC candidatesDon't you think you can serve your country better by remaining a doctor and treating poor patients? Why do you want to be a civil servant?"It would be best to answer this question very practically rather than emotionally saying you want to serve the country, because even a doctor serves the people. A doctor from Kerala was asked this Question and her reply was - "Because I want to treat the primary malady that afflicts our country that creates so many poor in India. As a doctor I can treat only secondary maladies." She even came up with exact statistics and suggestions on a rubber plantation for poverty alleviation indicating that she had spent considerable time and thoughts on her future plans. She was awarded a score of 85 per cent."What are the problems faced by wheat cultivators in your state?" An M.Sc. (Agriculture) student from Palanpur was once asked. "The problem is not so much to do with agronomy but with the lack of a seed bank in Palanpur, " was the reply and the candidate walked away with an 80 per cent score."Is there a law in physics, which is relevant to administration?" a law graduate was prompted. "Yes. Newton's third law of motion: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." He scored a cool 80 per cent.The above questions can give you an idea of how relevant questions are asked from your subjects even as they are not directly from the syllabus.The final results of the UPSC Mains exams are declared right after the interview or the personality test gets concluded. Candidates about double the number of vacancies are selected through the mains exams and called to appear for the interview. There are 275 marks allocated to the personality test. A good score in the personality test can determine your ranking in the final list of the civil services exam.For upsc interview preparation you can also join special interview batch conducted by chahal academy in ahmedabad.

How to face an IAS Interview?Now, if you have got through all the 9 papers of the mains exam well, you should get your interview call by about March or April. In the interview, your confidence, personality and understanding of the world is judged. The interview is quite subjective. We cannot give any definite advice about how you can prepare for it. It would definitely be good if you read some book about how to prepare and deliver an interview. Here we have provided for you a huge compilation of “tips” given by civil service exam toppers like Mr.Sorabh Babu Maheshwari, Ms. Manju Rajpal, Mr. Santosh Kumar Misra etc.Here is what they think about the interview and how they think you should deal with it:"Questions posed before a candidate by the interviewing board are very well framed and answers to them should be made taking into consideration all possible views and a balanced approach is expected from a candidate.""One should prepare for the interview with a group of 3-4 people as the preparation for Interview cannot be done in isolation. Personality is a life-time asset and expecting miraculous changes in personality in a span of a few days or weeks is not possible. Yet, efforts can be made to overcome major deficiency and polishing of views and opinions.""Remember, non-awareness of something should be admitted with politeness. It is okay to not know something!" "If at any point of time, you could show that your approach is flexible the world is yours.""It is better to say 'No' than to bluff around. Those interviewing are highly experienced persons and know much better than us.""If the question put is not clear to you, politely ask for more information. It is not the factual knowledge but your views which are on test in the interview." "Always observe interview etiquette and be honest, polite, convincing an modest. Arrogance, rigidity, flicking round the issue should be avoided.""When preparing for the ias interview, keep in mind that no Training institute can improve your personality! Some of these institutes can be helpful if they conduct Group Discussions and IAS Mock Interviews" "General Do's & Don'ts for the Interview: 1. Be utmost respectful to the board. They are usually very senior and learned people.2. Have no biases for any Board . Don't go by any stories doing rounds in your campus corridors.3. Never make any sweeping statement4. Accept your mistakes boldly.""Interview preparation does not require one to stuff oneself with facts, ability to analyse and to critically examine an issue is what actually counts." "Speak honestly, truthfully and with modesty. Understand the questions before answering them and clarify the points if you did not understand them. Many a time what happens is that your answer is misinterpreted, so do not hesitate in clarifying it." "Framing your own questions and answering them (especially recording them on to a tape and listening them) is a very useful technique, if you don't feel confident. Otherwise also it is extremely helpful in making a correct choice of words while answering a question.""Reach the Exam centre well in time, so some deep breathing to maintain your cool and be charming during the interview.""Interview preparation is not just a matter of a few days - your whole personality counts. Still you must acquaint yourself with your home State, district your college, your hobbies, general concepts of Public Administration, etc. also you can brush up the Mains GS material like Polity, Economy, History, etc.""Interview is more of a psychological test than just content based. But along with good communication skills and self-confidence, good knowledge base gives you an upper hand." "For the Interview read as many newspapers and as many magazine as possible. Discuss with your friends. Take mock-interviews. Try to find loop-holes in your arguments and plug them. Form your views on various subjects in a very logical and rational manner supported by data whenever necessary. Do not get nervous.""Do not get nervous before the Interviews. Improve your communications skills by giving mock-interviews. These will also open you up. Ask your friends to grill you, so that you can face pressure from the Board easily." "Always pause a bit before answering even if you know the answer. Do not give a hasty reply. Answer in an orderly and logical fashion an always look into the eyes of the interviewer while answering. Be polite and courteous." "Don't be argumentative. Be consistent in your views, i.e. just don't change your views because of the fact that the Board is differing with you.
