“Since 2013, the UPSC has been changing its pattern and moving towards more Philosophical type essay. In 2018, Section B all four topics were based on philosophical type. And it was a surprise for students. But in 2019, this surprise became a shocker as in Section A, all four topics were not philosophical but rather based on philosophical ethics.
We at Lukmaan IAS since 2013 have followed this standard. We have been asking philosophical topics. In total 64 topics, we have almost 32 philosophical topics. We have also been teaching how to write a piece of content of 1000 words on your own terms rather than memorising and adopting some techniques of inter-linkages and following mechanically.
For 2020, we too have introduced a major shift due to the pattern of 2019. Now we will also have 32 philosophical / philosophical ethics topics. All philosophical ethics discussion taken by S. Ansari (the best teacher for Ethics Paper).
