Economics is everywhere, and understanding economics can help you make better decisions and lead a happier life.Tyler Cowen

A UPSC aspirant is often faced with the dilemma of choosing the right optional.

A right optional is the one which helps you to outperform in mains, the one that fetches you maximum marks, the one which comes to your rescue when you fail to score well in General Studies and last but not the least, the one which brings out the best in you.

Why to chose Economics as an Optional?

Economics can prove to be a smart choice as an optional subject considering a number of factors:

  • It overlaps with almost 50-60% of GS3 Syllabus in the mains exam.
  • Easy to understand as it is logical and rational in nature.
  • It has also witnessed many successful candidates.
  • Study material is easily available.
  • Helpful in preliminary exam as around 15 to 20 questions from Indian Polity and governance section are asked every year for sure and they are covered in the Economics optional.
  • Again, in the UPSC- Civil Services interview, some questions are asked from economics irrespective of your academic background

WHO SHOULD CHOOSE Economics as an Optional Subject?

  • Interest: Interest in a particular subject should be given top priority while deciding an optional subject. If you have interest in Economics, you can go for it.
  • Background: If you are from an economics, commerce or management background you can opt for Economics.

IS Economics A SCORING SUBJECT?

Many candidates are opting for Economics as their optional on the basis of the success ratio that this subject has to offer. Many candidates have been able to score 300+ in Economics and many have managed to bag top ranks. However, UPSC does not discriminate between any of its optional subjects and one should consider his/her interest a top priority while choosing an optional.

Name of the candidate Year of passing Total marks (500) Paper I ECO (250 MARKS) Paper II ECO (250 MARKS)
KUMAR ANURAG (AIR48) CSE- 2018 314 155 159
CABHIJEET SINHA (AIR19) CSE- 2017 288 140 1748
TEJASVI RANA (AIR12) CSE- 2016 325 173 152
GAURAV AGARWAL (AIR1) CSE- 2013 296 134 162

Optional subject marks play an important role in improving your UPSC-CSE all India ranking. Also, if you have not scored well in GS papers, and if you can score well in optional papers, you can still find your name in UPSC-CSE final list.
