Practice Essay

Writing a good essay can fetch you a lot of marks in the UPSC CSE. Also, writing an essay can be a tricky affair in the UPSC examination. The reason for this is the variety of topics that UPSC comes up with. Moreover so, in most cases, it is demanded that a theme be analyzed from a specific angle. Thus, in such a case preparing an essay on a specified topic would not be beneficial. It is required that one has a holistic, research based understanding of a theme and thus can write an essay as per the demand of the topic. And to achieve that, practice is imperative.

A good essay reflects a balanced analysis and a strong opinion based on research. Therefore, in order to help our readers practice essay writing, we regularly provide various themes/topics for practice. Not only that, we provide you with quality study material on that topic so that you can read, formulate your own opinion and write a brilliant essay.
