What is syllabus of UPSC Mains Exam 2022?

I mentioned the Himalayan valley reminding me of the UPSC syllabus? It was the UPSC Mains syllabus that came to mind at the time.

The enormity of the IPS/IAS Mains syllabus is capable of sending even the most experienced applicants into nervous chills.

UPSC Mains Exam Syllabus (All Papers)

This is due to the fact that only those applicants who pass Phase 1, or the Prelims, are eligible to take the Phase 2 or Mains exam. In other words, only those applicants who pass the UPSC Prelims exam with a score higher than the UPSC cut-offs are eligible to take the Mains exam.

Fundamentally, the UPSC 2022 Mains exam is designed to evaluate your grasp of the many subjects covered by the UPSC Mains syllabus, and it is designed to do so in a timed manner.

It’s worth noting that, with the exception of the two language papers in the UPSC Mains curriculum, all of the papers can be written in any of the languages listed in Schedule 8 of the Indian Constitution.

Okay, now that we’ve covered the two language papers, it’s time to look at the UPSC Mains exams’ seven main papers. To help you understand, I’ve created a table that lists all of the subjects in each of the seven papers that make up the Mains curriculum, as well as their weightage:
