For clearing the exam like UPSC Civil Services, one must know what weapons UPSC has used in past. Going through the previous years’ papers clears the picture for aspirant at any stage of preparation regarding their own standing.  Take a wise saying from me about UPSC Civils preparation:

“Whenever you feel emotionally heightened about your preparation, whatever shade of confidence, Go through Previous Years Paper and you will hit reality of your standing”. 

If you are wise, you will bookmark this page so that you pay homage to these previous year papers every week and UPSC will bless you and move you forward to the Mains stage. After 4-5 looks at each paper you will know what the seniors in this game know – what to cover and what you can’t cover. This wisdom broadly separates the candidates who secure a selection in Final list and those who don’t.
