UPSC Mains 2016 - Essay Paper Analysis

Civil Services Mains Essay paper 2016 conducted by Union Public Service Commission, has just completed. The topics are comparatively contented and are easy to comprehend. For aspirants with hands on experience in essay writing practice this paper would have been relatively easier.

Essay paper this time is in line with the previous year patterns and is complemented with fewer surprises.

The topics are:

Section A:
1. If development is not engendered, it is endangered
2. Need brings greed, if greed increases it spoils breed
3. Water disputes between states in federal India
4. Innovation is the key determinant of economic growth and social welfare

2. Cyberspace and internet: Blessing or curse to the human civilization in the long run
3. Near jobless growth in India: An anomaly or an outcome of economic reforms
4. Digital economy: A leveller or a source of economic inequality

It is a matter of great privilege for CHRONICLE IAS ACADEMY that the questions asked are directly related to our “CHRONICLE ESSAY TEST SERIES FOR IAS 2016programme.

From our classroom essay writing orientation and foundation programme three topics each from Part A (topic no. 1, 3 and 4) and Part B (topic no. 1,2 and 4) were directly asked in the paper. This turns out to be the strike rate of 75%, astonishingly high and sufficient to ensure success of our students.

In addition to this, as we strictly follow the UPSC pattern in our Essay test series programme. It could be inferred from the paper that serious aspirants could achieve very good score in essay paper. Last year topper’s score was 145, so  this time also, with good writing practices the chances of scoring in the essay paper is equally good.

Following analysis would sufficiently justify our claim:
1. If development is not engendered, it is endangered (CSE Main 2016, Part A)
• Women, Values and Society in Modern India (Chronicle Essay Test Series, Mock 3)
Uniform Civil Code- Pros and Cons (Chronicle Essay Test Series, Mock 3)
