There is no doubt that practice makes everyone perfect, same goes for UPSC preparation. There there is no mentor which will tell you that answer writing and mock test are not important. almost every single person has said that you have to practice multiple choice questions and mains answer writing as much as possible. 

​​

We UPSC From Home bring you an easy way to practice your answer writing and MCQ solving skills.

The best thing to do when starting with UPSC preparation is to start with the previous year's question papers, and then move on to mock tests that contain expected question papers

Because PYQs give you an idea of what kind of questions are asked 

you can do exam-oriented preparation.

Here we have provided question papers of each stage in UPSC CSE Exam along with ansewers sorted according to years.

We have included question papers from 2013( Because exam pattern and syllabus was hugely changed in 2013) till 2019 and we will keep updating them forever!
