About Applied GS Tests

In UPSC Mains Examination, there are generally two types of questions asked:

  • To check the conceptual clarity by directly asking the core concept & linking it with current issue.
  • To check the multi-dimensional approach by asking the question based on 2-3 dimensions and linking them together.

There are many micro-topics that lies in the periphery of core syllabus mentioned by UPSC. Thus, Applied GS Tests aim at checking the inter-disciplinary approach of the candidate. Example:

Thus poverty can be linked to different approaches while framing questions. Applied GS Tests will follow this approach to increase Thinking & Analytical Skill of the candidates.
