How to Write Quick Answers in UPSC Mains 2021?

  1. The candidates must, before the beginning of the exam, take a few breaths and think of completing the paper at all costs. I understand it sounds stupid but try doing it as it raises your motivation and your thought process. We need the adrenaline rush but not for curbing the nervousness. It is required to keep the pen moving. 
  2. Do not touch any books before half an hour of the exam. You need to keep your fingers warm and hands flushed. Candidates appearing in colder parts of the country like New Delhi, UP, Rajasthan etc would appear for the exam in the winter season. Wear warmers and layers to avoid cold and keep your hands warm so that you may easily write. 
  3. As soon as you get the exam paper try to read it whole in one go. If you are comfortable start with the first question itself. It is always better to go sequence wise as this way you do not have to waste time in thinking which question you left and which you wrote. 
  4. Many candidates lose hope once they see the questions out of their league and preparation. Believe me! Every exam has such questions. All you need to do is skip that question and come back when the paper is finished to write.
  5. Those candidates who are comfortable with making small points before writing the answers must do that. It is a beneficial exercise to write the points you remember while reading the question at some part of your paper so that you do not miss that while you are writing answers. 
  6. Do not begin to write lengthy answers until you feel that you have more time than required. 3 minutes for every question are sufficient for any exam. Answers must be written in points and as per the marks awarded for the same. 
  7. The candidates must not forget to highlight. The answer writing involves inserting major points in between lines that must be highlighted. 
  8. Do not waste much time on one question. Write only what is necessary and required. Choose your words wisely and follow the word limit. 

Those candidates who are appearing must note the above points and follow them to complete their exam in the UPSC Civil Services Mains 2021. It is extremely important not to miss any question as even 1 mark counts in such competitive exams.
