    Dear Applicant,

    >> YES !! You can definitely choose English to write one of the Optional papers and Hindi to write the another.
    >> There is no language barrier in writing the Mains exams.
    >> While one has to choose from within HINDI & ENGLISH only to write the Preliminary exams,you are free to choose any language to write the papers for the Mains exams,provided the Language features in the Constitutional List for regional languages !

    >> Hence,you can for sure go ahead to write your electrical exams papers in ENGLISH and the History exams papers in HINDI.
    There is no restriction preventing you from doing so.
    >> But make sure,that you mention your preference before hand while you fill in the detailed application form for the Mains exams !

    >> For any further details related to the exams,you are always free to refer to the official website of the UPSC ::
    www.upsc.gov.in !

    All The Best.

    Dear,
    Sorry, you can't choose the different type of medium in one examination. Before applying to the DAF of the Main examination, you have to mention the medium of language that you want to appear. That may be English or Hindi or any other regional language which is in the 8th schedule of the constitution. So you have to choose only one medium of language in which you have to appear the whole main examination except English and Essay paper. Thanks...

    Dear friend,

    you cannot do like that.

    upsc allows the candidates to write all papers except the language paper in any of the languages mentioned in the 18th schedule of the constitution.

    but you should write only in one medium.attend both the optionals in the same medium either hindi or english.

    the detailed information is given in the notification of the upsc in the employment newspaper.for more details refer the edition dated 11-17th feb 2012.

    you can also visit the commission' website for further information.

    all the best
