APSC Mains – English Paper Analysis

English-APSC-Mains
 

 

 

 

 


The compulsory English paper is of 300 Marks, which makes it very important part of scoring well in APSC Mains exam.
This paper needs comparatively less attention and preparation efforts ( though most candidates make no preparation of at all ), but we should prepare ourselves to the required level, also because almost all questions in this paper is answerable by everyone writing the exam, all the questions we have been writing as a part of English subject of our academic career.

We will try to analyse the question pattern of recent years ( and hope the pattern to remain same this year also), to get an understanding of what types of various questions are gonna come in the paper. Some changes were done since last two years paper, but they were of very minor changes, other than the no. of essay being increased from one topic of 100 marks to 2 topics of 50 marks each.

 

Total 300 Marks

Precis – 40 Marks
Original Paragraph given is of around 550 words on which candidates are asked to write a Precis, though they have not mentioned the word limit but we have to generalise it as one-third of the original passage.
So we can assume it 1/3 of (550 words) = 170-190 words.

 

Essay – 100 Marks

As we know previously APSC used to ask one essay of 100 marks, but now they ask two shorter essays of two topics from one topic from two group of topics each. Which makes it easier as candidates need to write less about one topic and this has also increased their options of selecting topic.

Each essays are to be written at about 400-500 words.

We have discusses this topics in details separately in these pages below
