Mathematics is one of the optional subjects offered by the UPSC in the civil services mains exam. Generally considered by many as a tough subject, mathematics ‘the queen of the sciences’ is taken by many aspirants, many of whom have come out with flying colours in the IAS exam. Maths, often vilified as the toughest subject in school, students, barring exceptions, universally dread maths. In the IAS exam, the performance of this subject has been ambiguous. Many toppers have attributed their success and high rank to the maths optional, whereas many candidates have had very low marks in the maths optional papers. In this article, we will try to dispel many myths surrounding the mathematics optional while presenting a realistic picture. We also discuss some strategies and UPSC maths study material relevant for the preparation of mathematics.
