UPSC drops English!

The English proficiency paper of 100 marks in the 2013 Civil Services Main Examination, which raised a controversy, has been dropped and the earlier practice of two qualifying papers in any Indian language and English was restored by the government on Thursday. ‘The English component (of 100 marks) from Essay Paper will be dropped and the status quo ante of two qualifying papers of 300 marks each in any modern Indian language and in English shall be restored,’ MoS for Personnel V Narayanasamy said. He said the essay paper would now be of 250 marks to be written in the medium or language of the candidate’s choice.
