The Union Public Services Commission (UPSC) has introduced few modifications in the answering format for its future examinations. UPSC will not give separate answer papers from this year. You have to concise your answers and write within the space provided underneath the question in the same booklet. A consolidated Question paper and Answer book will have a pre-designated space for every question and any attempt outside the pre-defined space will not be evaluated.
It will be a major change from the conventional type of essay writing and questions are likely to be a medley of questions, demanding answers in 25, 50, 75 and 150 words. The question- answer book will also have to be returned after the examination which would increase the surprise element at the successive examinations.
