Any competitive examination is all about marks. Especially when someone prepares for IAS examination this becomes more important as the selection ratio is less than 1%. In this examination there are areas where students can score better compared to other subjects with less efforts. Ethics and essay combined is one such pocket-sized subject where students can fetch good marks.
GS Paper 4 (Ethics, Integrity and Aptitude) has maintained its uniqueness about scoring patterns. In the last few years this paper has witnessed a unique trend of marking patterns. In GS Paper 1, 2, 3 ranges of marks among the aspirants are not so inconsistent (barring few cases). However in Paper 4, ranges of marks among the aspirants are very high i.e. if one-candidate gets 125-130 marks, and also candidate getting very low approx. 60 marks in the same year.
Ethics (Paper 4) play an important role in the final selection. Hence the question arises – why so much variation of marks in this paper? The flaw is not due to lack of range of information, it's more about analysing the dimensions related to the topics and having a problem solving approach. We at GS SCORE have realized that apart from conceptual clarity; answer writing skill could be another reason for this debacle. Many IAS Toppers copies/performances are witnessed in itself. You can see all the IAS toppers copies at iasscore.in for ethics paper.
Next important area is essays. But it is casually neglected by students and so they pay a heavy price for ignoring it. Now the question is : What is a good essay and how some candidates score 160 +. Very simple answer: a writeup that gets 150+ marks in IAS exam is a good essay, if we talk in terms of marks. How does one get 150 +. A good essay is not a long note on something. A good is not a compilation of big ideas alone. There are many selected candidates who scored 160+ in essay and their copies are uploaded on iassscore.in.
