Cracking the UPSC civil services exam requires the right mix of knowledge, analytical ability, exam-oriented preparation and a single-minded dedication. Apart from these requisites, it is also imperative that you practice mock tests for the UPSC prelims exam and answer writing for the mains exam. Everybody reads the same material. But what differentiates between success and failure is the ability to perform well in the exam on the D-day. This is possible only if you take mock tests for the prelims and practice answer writing for the mains exams.
BYJU’S presents UPSC Exam Simulation – a platform where you can take mock tests for prelims and practice answer writing for the mains. This section has two subcategories.
In this section, we give you UPSC mains questions for practice. The questions are classified subject-wise and this will tremendously help in your IAS mains preparation. Answer writing practice is essential for UPSC exam preparation since in the mains exam, you will be scored not only on the basis of knowledge but also on your answer presentation skills. Many candidates fail to grasp the crux of the questions asked in the IAS mains and this is where answer writing practice comes into the picture.
Under Current Affairs Quiz, you can test your GK and current affairs knowledge. A new quiz will be updated every week!
