    There are 3 numbers on 1st page of notification.
    Try any of those until the call gets connected. (It turns out busy most of the times.)

    This year the change is, you can choose different languages for GS and Optional even if the optional is not the literature of that language.
  • Suppose if i have maithili literature as an optional can i write it in hindi or english?? Please clarify
  • Suppose if i have maithili literature as an optional can i write it in hindi or english?? Please clarify

    Yes you can write it in hindi or English, but maithili literature has to be written in maithili only. Don't get confused. Once you fill out the form this thing will be clear
  • I have seen it now. Iam going with sanskrit literature and it has only 3 questions totally out of two papers to be answered in sanskrit Devanagari script.
    Now can I write the remaining in languages other than English? Will upsc provide evaluators for all these kind of mix-ups??
  • guys irrespective of this change literature optional students are not allowed to change their medium.
  • Is this possible to write paper 1 to 5 in English language and then attempt the literature paper (optional , e.g Sanskrit) in Regional language?

    Yes, medium for Essay and GS and medium for optional can be different as per 2018 pattern, unless UPSC introduces another change in 2019.

    Literature papers are supposed to be answered in the language of which literature you are opting as your optional.
    In case of literature of Sanskrit, or similar languages which are not used widely, some questions have to be compulsorily answered in Sanskrit or respective language and some of those can be answered in chosen medium (say Hindi or English).
    For literature of Kannada language, all questions have to be answered in Kannada.

    Refer previous papers, everything is clearly mentioned in instructions.
