Answer :

Dear Candidate,

Thank you for sharing your concern with us.

As for your query:

You are expected to write to the point and analytic answers in the Mains exam. Based on the new exam pattern, you cannot afford to waste time in write the long descriptive answers. You are expected to write 25*200 (5000) words in 3 hours. it is not an easy task.

Thus, you should practice writing to the point answers, while maintaining the links between different points.
