The main Examination is intended to assess the overall intellectual traits and depth of understanding of candidates rather than merely the range of their information and memory. The questions are likely to test the candidate’s basic understanding of all relevant issues, and ability to analyze, and take a view on conflicting socio-economic goals, objectives and demands. ‘Mains’ assesses the quality of thoughts and content of one’s mind. These will enter subconsciously into one’s answer sheets.
Further, Instances of serious aspirants failing to clear the Mains hurdle, despite having good knowledge and being extensively read and doing all the hard work, are very common in the circles of UPSC CSE preparation.
