As per the modifications in the exam-plan, UPSC has removed this Paper from the new format for Main Examination.

In section 2 of Paper I in Civil Services (Main) Examination 2013, a paper of 100 marks is introduced on English Comprehension and English Précis.

The newly added paper of English Comprehension and English Précis will be of Matriculation/ Xth standard level to check the linguistic skills of the candidate.

At this stage, it is difficult to map the intensity of impact this new change with 100 marks attached to it; but, English Comprehension and English Précis could be seen as a blockade for Hindi/vernacular medium candidates.

Reaction from Hindi/vernacular medium candidates is still to be seen but, I feel that for an examination that recommends suitable candidates for posts like IAS, IFS, IPS and others, introduction of the 10th standard English paper should not prove to be an obstacle.
