Mains important
Preliminary for IAS is easier than mains. Many students clear their prelims , after appearing for four times in mains they could not clear The Mains. What`s the reason behind it?

My reply to the question previous question. Isn`t it all about the number of seats. The selection process is like a pyramid and more people will obviously fail in the main exam than the preliminary ones.
