Nowadays, these copies are easily available online on websites like GS Score and EDEN IAS among others.

Once this is done one can start answer writing.

Best ways to begin the process writing practice

The best way to begin the process is to write responses to newspaper editorials. One can begin to frame questions that are simple to answer about the editorials we read in newspapers.

The Body should be multidimensional and cover the most aspects that are feasible. Do put facts, data, use maps, flowcharts, various committees' reports, Supreme court judgments, etc. to enrich your essay. It is best to compose your essay in points format instead of using paragraphs. In the end, the conclusion should be forward-looking and generally include a suggestion, best practices from an ongoing program of the government, etc.
