    Hello,

    UPSC as not come out with the notification yet for 2013 CSE. So, saying anything about its pattern would be a speculation. Nevertheless, it is hard to think of any changes in pattern this year. So, most probably, the pattern will remain same for mains exam as it was in 2012. However, everything would be clear once the notification is out for CSE 2013.

    Thanks,
    goyalk
