*Note - You can find PDF of all these books on telegram with channel id @gradebofficers.

Before moving to how to approach descriptive answer writing you need to check questions asked this year given in the end of this article. You can start with those questions for Practice.

Step - 1. Knowledge about subject matters - This will need some time and can be gained from the Above sources that i have mentioned from basic to Advanced level, apart from that you can use Google and Investopedia for more clarity on any topic. Your aim should be to understand each and Everything, make proper notes as you are not giving Exams today, you will give it after 4–5 months so having a notes help you in revision.

If you analyze questions asked this year given in the end, In both Economics and Finance questions were mixed of both Current and Static. So its not just you need to cover above books but you

Step - 2. Writing and Presentation of your Knowledge : In descriptive Answer Writing understanding the actual meaning of Question is very important, many a time we don't write which was asked and rather write something else without knowing it won't fetch you marks and then after result we think "Sab kuch to likha"

It's not like you have to write everything, rather you have to write exactly they asked you for.

These directive words are very important to understand to write correct answer. Although not all the directive words mentioned are important for us but few words such as : Discuss, Evaluate, Critically Analyze, Explain, State, Justify, Elaborate, Examine, Critically Examine, Describe etc are very important.

Practice is the only way to improve your writing skill and you need keep doing it from now onwards on a regular basis to improve your writing and Presentation skill. For reference you can check the answers of Toppers of UPSC Mains GS-III and try to understand how they answer the asked questions and how you would have answered, compare yourself.

Step - 3. Typing Speed - As you need to type 22 words per min which is easy if someone provide you the text to type but its not a typing exam, you need to first think about the answer, formulate it about how are you going to approach the question, what are points you will be including and then you need to type those so its time consuming thing and most importantly the keyboard given in exam hall is not as good as your laptop.

You can understand through this analysis : Those who have typing practice can type on an average 30–35 wpm, those who have advance level of practice or people working in typing jobs can type 45–50 wpm and those who have mastered the typing with years of practice can type 75–80 wpm and all these are when they are provided with the content to type.

*Hope now you understand why typing speed matters in exam.
