General Studies Mains Paper II- Governance, Constitution, Polity, Social
Justice and International Relations
It is a 250-marks subjective paper that is considered for merit.
It means the score obtained in the UPSC Mains GS Paper 2 is considered for determining the final rank of the candidate.
Broadly, the UPSC Mains GS Paper 2 covers polity, governance, social justice, and international relations.
General Studies II has very few direct questions which are related to one topic. This paper needs a fair bit of critical thinking to answer the questions correctly as many times interrelated topics appear.
