General Studies has got the maximum influence!

With 4 papers and 1000 marks assigned to General Studies in new format of Civil Services (Main) Examination, it has the maximum weightage in total written examination marks.

With 4 papers of General Studies, the coverage has gone wider and now, candidates cannot ignore the magnitude and would have to take it seriously.

Gone are the days when candidates were scoring less than 200 marks (out of 600) in General Studies and with very high scores in optional subjects were able to find place in top ranks.

As such, General Studies had a vague syllabus and newly introduced first three papers (General Studies I, II and III) can be classified as extension of the previous syllabus with some odd additional topics like Disaster Management etc.

The General Studies Paper-IV has some newer topics and would be exciting as UPSC has clearly hinted about leaning towards ‘Case Studies’ on issues covered in the syllabus.
