Drishti Mentorship Program-Mains-2023 (DMPM-2023)

Mastering the Mains Examination


Students who are appearing in the UPSC-CSE Prelims Exam in the year 2023 must have been going through lots of emotions regarding their preparations. Their revision should be top notch and should be testing their knowledge and preparation level by practicing several tests.

Post that, those who will qualify the Prelims exam will go on a roller coaster ride for Mains examination preparations and those who don’t, will have to analyse their performance and get back to the preparation mode for the next Prelims and Mains as soon as possible to overcome their hurdles. Sincere commitment to this exam is what lets you through it.

With our experience in previous Mentorship Programs, what we are assured of is that this exam is about getting indulged in studies with full concentration, repeated revision and continuous practice of the things being learnt.

When it comes to the UPSC CSE Mains Examination, the target is big, but the stride is simple. Mains examination comprises of 9 Papers in total. These 9 papers are as follows: Paper-A (Compulsory Indian Language); Paper-B (English) which are qualifying in nature, while the other papers like Essay, General Studies Papers I, II, III, and IV, and Optional Papers I and II are considered for the final ranking.

Doing well in all the papers has become very necessary in order to qualify for the Interview Stage. It might look like a humongous task but we at Drishti IAS are here to support you in this journey. Mains examination can be a cakewalk if one goes through all the subjects and practice them through tests repeatedly and try putting up the content present in one's notes on the answer booklet.

Once you get through the Prelims, it shall motivate you to get committed to the Mains examination. For this exam, the following saying shall be the torchbearer for you; "Motivation is what gets you Started; Commitment is what keeps you Going".
