Title: UPSC Syllabus

The UPSC board describes the standard IAS Exam
Syllabus. At Elite IAS, we have presented the
UPSC Syllabus for Prelims and Mains Exam. The IAS
aspirants should go through the syllabus in
detail before starting with preparation.
Moreover, the UPSC revises the syllabus on a
yearly basis. The civil services exam has three
consecutive stages. What is UPSC Syllabus for
Civil Services Exam? UPSC Syllabus is broadly
explained in the Civil Services exam notification
every year. IAS syllabus is just like a tip of
the iceberg afloat in the ocean of knowledge
information. Students should interpret and
understand that the UPSC syllabus is much more
elaborate than the defined topics in the IAS
syllabus. It is the interchange of the
subject-matter which makes the UPSC syllabus much
rational as well as subjective and objective.
Students should develop an understanding for the
dynamic part of the different topics and hence
focus to understand the theme. It will be helpful
to go through previous year IAS questions papers
and analyse them.
Note UPSC revised date for IAS Prelims-2020 is
4 October, 2020 and IAS mains exam commences
from 8 January, 2021 (It will be for 5 days)
UPSC Civil Services Syllabus The complete
syllabus prescribed by UPSC for the Civil
Services Exam has been given here for the sake
of the students and the IAS aspirants. The CSE is
widely recognized as the toughest of all the
competitive Exams across India. Why Study the
Syllabus thoroughly? An IAS aspirant may very
well reason that it is reading the books and the
newspapers etc. that should be paid more of the
attention to. So, why study the syllabus? UPSC
notification refers the IAS Prelims syllabus
IAS mains syllabus at separate places, but in
reality, it should be studied together. This
helps is comprehending the topics in much more
detail. Completing the UPSC syllabus is just the
first or initial step of the IAS exam
preparation. Civil Services exam questions for
IAS prelims are framed in such a way that it
needs in-depth knowledge about the topic, so
requires wholistic information. The best method
of IAS preparation for candidates is to study
both IAS prelims syllabus and IAS mains syllabus
together. Benefit of this plan is that you
develop wider knowledge about all topics. The
objective questions framed in IAS prelims are of
somewhat confusing nature i.e. answer options
given are very close and even a slight confusion
may land to wrong answer. Thus, elaborate studies
of IAS mains syllabus broaden your knowledge and
helps to choose the exact correct answer. Well,
time is a resource that always gets depleted
continuously. And if you read, nay study the
syllabus scrupulously, you would know better what
to read and what not to.
  • Staying away from all the diversions, no matter
    howsoever interesting they might be would
    finally help you save a lot of time.
  • Besides, preparing for the IAS Exam as per the
    UPSC syllabus also serves to keep your
    preparation well aligned with the CSE
    requirements. And it would serve to enhance your
    confidence for you would know that your
    preparation for the Exam has been moving ahead
    as per the syllabus that UPSC prescribes.

    services including the

  • The syllabus of Civil Services prelims is a
    shortened version of IAS mains syllabus, except
    the portion of Ethics paper (GS Paper-IV). The
    IAS prelims exam contains MCQs i.e.
    multiple-choice questions. Here, the candidate
    must choose correct answer among the various
    options provided. There are two papers in IAS
    prelims exam, one is General Studies and the
    second paper is of CSAT. Both contains 200 marks
    each, but CSAT paper is just of qualifying
    nature. Below you can find IAS Prelims syllabus,
    as per UPSC notification 2020-21.
  • Preliminary Stage IAS Syllabus
  • The IAS candidates must clear prelims to attend
    the mains exam. The preliminary stage is a
    screening round. Its purpose is only to qualify
    the candidates to the next round. The estimation
    of the final IAS ranking does not consider the
    marks scored in prelims. As per the UPSC
    syllabus, the prelims stage has 2 papers. They
  • General Ability Test GAT
  • Civil Service Aptitude Test CSAT
  • The IAS Exam Syllabus is huge. As a result, the
    candidates must check the syllabus with caution.
    Elite IAS understands the importance and has put
    an extra effort into helping you with better
    preparation. Here is the list of detailed UPSC
    prelims syllabus that helps you to attain

  • Note UPSC prelims syllabus humbly mentions
    current events, but you should give it top
    importance. Every year lots of current affairs
    questions are asked in IAS prelims exam,
    directly or indirectly i.e. current affairs
    related to other topics like, Polity, economics,
    geography, science technology, ecology
    environment etc. (For example, in IAS prelims
    2020, we can expect question on COVID-19
    reference can be any topic i.e. political

    depth. Mugging up the information will not help
    in getting better scores. Commonly, the general
    studies paper (from paper 2 to paper 5) do not
    require specialized preparation. The well-
    educated person can easily answer without
    in-depth subject study. The questions are
    structured to test the candidates awareness of
    the subject on a general basis.

  • In turn, these questions from IAS Exam syllabus
    are related to the civil services career. How
    well has the candidate understood the current
    issues? Does he or she have the ability to
    analyze the situation? Grasp the ability to
    understand the socio-economic conflicting
    issues. Being an aspiring candidate, he or she
    must primarily focus on UPSC Syllabus.
    Consequently, the candidates can give meaningful
    and relevant answers.
  • In the case of optional subjects, the syllabus is
    one level higher than the bachelors degree. On
    the other hand, the syllabus standard is below
