How to do Answer Writing in CSS, PMS Exam Without Coaching
Today we are going to discuss how to do answer writing for Civil Service Exam. I briefly explain how, to begin with the answer writing if we have no clue, not going any coaching or Institute. How we begin the answer writing. This is not for those aspirants who have already appeared in written exam but it is also for the those who are going to appear in 2018-19 and so on. The written CSS exam is of 1200 marks. It is very important because it actually decides your rank. It decides what service you will get. You will be allocated as PAS, PSP or any other service else. So to get top rank depend upon written exam.
First of all when writing any question, Then we have to talk about the main theme of the question. This is very important. Generally, we do not read the whole question and just start writing whatever comes to our mind. It is due to the shortage of time. we have so many questions to attempt so we can not afford so much time. At that time you need to draw the complete structure of the question. Three points in any question that I emphasized more are introduction, main parts(its body) and conclusions of the answer. Introduction and conclusion in any question are very important. Because if we do not introduce any question or do not conclude it then it will be an incomplete format which is the bad impression for the examiner. For example, you are becoming a civil servant in future then it is watched by the examiner that how you prepare framework in any situation. Other important things do not bluff the examiner. If you completely sure for the question then you do not need to worry. Write its answer and you will fetch good marks.
