UPSC Marksheet

By | April 30, 2024

Here are my marksheets for the Prelims and Mains of Civil Services Exam 2017. Along with these, I’ve attached my marksheet for CSE 2015 (I’ve skipped CSE 2016.)

A cursory glance at scores from both these attempts should tell you that, with crisp and clear answers, you can drastically improve your Mains scores across the papers. You can read more about how I overcame my failures here.

So my only plea to you is: if your recent Mains scores have been terrible, do not become despondent. I will soon write detailed blog posts on Mains answer writing. Hope they help you in improving your answer content and presentation.

    Good Evening Sir,

    Congratulations for your achievement.

    I am working in a Pvt. Sector Bank in Mumbai for last 7 years (Age-29 years, General Category) which I cannot leave.

    I always dream of becoming an IPS officer but till now, I have not started the preparation. There are so many information available online but its somewhere creating confusion.

    Regarding the books and your strategy, I wanted to write an email to you but I don’t have your email id. If you could share it over here, it would be great.

    Sir, I will be giving my third attempt this year 2019. But from inside as if I have lost hope and faith in UPSC. Is it wise to skip it for this year and appear for next 2020 attempt.?? I am not even prepared well for optional. Prelims is trying my patience a lot. I am so confused now.

    Hello sir
    Initially you chose public administration as your optional paper but later attempt you change your optional paper to anthropology.
    Why did you change it for scoring more marks or anthropology was an easier optional paper for you ?
