[UPSC MAINS]Why answer review is important?

IAS EXAM, IAS toppers, UPSC answer writing, UPSC exam, UPSC toppers, Writing contest

Why writing daily and getting answers reviewed is important? This is frequently asked question to us by aspirants. I had read all standard texts & references. Im confident about my knowledge & there are ample test series who gives model answers with out answer review,then why should i join with iastoday for answer review? Just read this fully & decide yourself.

WHY ANSWER WRITING IS IMPORTANT?

If you cleared prelims,then you know facts and concepts well.You might can explain answer when you see a question . Everyone (around 13,000) who cleared prelims know answers & over 10,000 fails to clear mains. The question is , CAN YOU DRAFT ANSWER PROPERLY TO GET AN EDGE OVER OTHERS? It needs writing practice & answer review to realize your standard & mistakes.

WHY ANSWER REVIEW IS IMPORTANT?

You may think: “I know answer writing is important & i wrote many answers. Why should i get my answers reviewed?” Consider the same statistics above. Those 13,000 had written answers atleast twice in a week. Then what? Until & unless you get answers reviewed, you cant realize mistakes. Repeating same mistakes again & again makes no sense. Here you can see some answers written for the first time & uploaded for review. This is not to insult those users who wrote answers; Just for awareness of lion share outside.
