    This is a very good question but to answer this you need to understand a few things which cannot be explained in written answer format.

    For the optional subject papers, you need to choose a subject of which you have an in-depth understanding.

    The UPSC allows you to choose one from out of a total of 48 different subjects. There’ll be 2 papers, Paper 1 and Paper 2 of 250 marks each pertaining to the subject that you choose. My advice is that you should choose the optional subject after very careful consideration.

    I have shared a list of the optional subjects for UPSC Exam 2022, below:

    1. Agriculture
    2. Anthropology
    3. Chemistry
    4. Civil Engineering
    5. Geography
    6. History
