Essay Strategy for UPPSC Mains

Tips To Write A Good Essay

  • Make a framework (blueprint) of the essay you are going to write first.
  • Our advice would be to use simple language.
  • The idea of using ornamental language to showcase your English vocabulary may backfire at times. But, don’t make your essay sound like a General Studies answer.
  • If the introduction can generate curiosity in the reader, that would be great.
  • There should be a logical continuation from beginning to end.
  • The essay should be organized in well-structured paragraphs coherent with the flow of the essay.
  • Don’t be too aggressive or pessimistic in your tone.
  • Come up with good points and express new viewpoints.
  • Go through well-written essays by experts in newspapers and magazines, and understand how they frame the ‘Introduction’ and ‘Conclusion’ paragraphs.
  • In most cases, there will not be any need for separate coaching or preparation for essays, and candidates’ reading and preparation for General Studies Mains should suffice. But make sure your writing and analytical skills are up to the UPSC expectations; if not, polish it.
  • Write mock essays and get it evaluated by experts in the field.

What you must avoid in Essay

  • Do not focus excessively only on one point, or one dimension (such as the historical or political aspect) Your essay needs to be expansive and multi-dimensional.
  • During preparation, we read a lot and it’s understandable that we feel strongly about certain topics. And since essay offers freedom to write, it’s very easy to get carried away with such a topic. But make sure that you write what is asked, not what you know or feel like. No mann ki baat. Always stick to the subject of the topic. It helps to read the question in the midst of your essay to ensure that you are not steering away from the topic.
  • If you are not comfortable writing about abstract philosophical topics, avoid such questions. Your choice of topic has no bearing on the marks and that is why, selecting an unpopular topic just for the sake of it is unwise. Also, if there’s a technical term in the question, be doubly sure that you understand it correctly.
  • When you take a final stand on an issue, it’s best to avoid extreme or highly unpopular opinions. We are free to have any opinion in the privacy of our minds, but in UPSC essay why take that risk? For instance, in an essay on Capital Punishment, in the main body content, you should present a case for both abolition and retention. But when you take a stance, it’s best to be an abolitionist.
  • No ranting. You might be a great fan of Karl Marx, but if there’s a question on Capitalism, do not rant or rail against it . You must present both the positives and negatives of Capitalism and end the essay on a balanced note.
  • Do not dedicate disproportionate amount of time for the first essay and scamper through the second. Both carry equal marks, so please invest equal time.

Strategy to Cover Uttar Pradesh related Syllabus – UPPSC Mains 2021

Dear Aspirant,

State specific Mains questions are most of the time direct factual questions. And if you are well aware of the facts, then they are just the Cake Walk!!!!! But hold on, not just the facts you should equally be able to present the facts in best way to get the best score.

Always try to write the answer in points so as not to look as an essay, but if required to be written in paragraph, then also try to write small paragraphs and highlight or underline important terms and facts. This will save invigilator’s time and energy to find keywords in your answer. And Voila!! You will surely be rewarded.

Also try to relate static facts with Current affairs of the state. Like this year we have Panchayat elections in Uttar Pradesh, so it will increase the chance of question on Panchayat system and its history and hierarchy in UP. Also, because of Covid Pandemic there increases probability of question on disaster management, health services and specific schemes of Uttar Pradesh.

So, Keep your preparations in line with this. Material provided in our Mains Test Series Program is up to date and contain most relevant information elaborated to meet Mains requirement. But additions are always a great help. So you can always use these notes as supplement to your preparation.

All The Very Best!!!!

Stay Safe and Stay Focused.
