Is there any trend of IAS exam to follow at all? Yes…No… Don’t know…! Often IAS aspirant design their strategies based on certain reliable trends of this exam.  This includes from selecting an optional subject to giving importance to certain areas of GS Mains depending upon such hollowly created trends.

No. A big no! Lets churn out another scenario; Scope of Ethics paper.
