    After clearing the preliminary exam then upsc gives the application form for the mains exam.

    You fill the optional subject which you are selected from the subject list.

    One thing is more if the one time you fill the application form and submit it, then you cannot change the subject.

    The eight paper held in the mains exam

    One is the English exam

    One is the language paper (optional subject)

    Two papers are the general study

    Four paper from your two optional subjects.

    Best of luck

    Hello Friend,

    After clearing prelims, one has to give mains exam which is subjective in nature. It consists of 9 papers:
    1- GS (2 papers)
    2- English and Regional language papers( both qualifying)
    3- Essay
    4- First subject (2 papers)
    5- Second subject(2 papers)

    After clearing mains, there is interview round, then a medical test, then final result, then joining in September. Then, training for minimum 2 years.

    And after all this, it depends on you if you want to work or sit at home Just joking.
