But many times it happens that UPSC can ask confusing questions in English as well. So it is very important to consider English as a subject to be important and practising questions.

3. Taking General Knowledge for granted

Candidates who have studied science in their class 12 often assume that if they only focus on science subjects and not pay attention to General Knowledge they can clear the exam, but these are the kinds of myths which lead to failure.
