After a candidate clears the prelims stage he/she enters the Mains stage which is all about answer -writing. A good answer is a reflection of the clarity of mind of the candidate. The main aim of this stage is to test the candidate’s ability to simulate the given information into the time bound manner.

How to start Mains Answer writing from scratch?

Mains answer writing doesn’t necessarily have to begin post prelims. Here the question arises: when does one start answering writing  then? From day one? The answer to which is no. After one has gone through the syllabus once and has had a significant grasp over the issue one can start by writing small synopsis of the information. Once the candidate gathers enough confidence one can start writing answers.
