Crack UPSC in a year with UPSC Pathshala
The UPSC Civil Services Exam is the gateway to the challenging Indian bureaucratic career. Clearing this exam means you can be part of the elite civil services like the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS), Indian Police Service (IPS), and a host of other services. At UPSC Pathshala, we always say that contrary to popular belief, it is very much possible to crack the UPSC exam with one year of preparation.
Following are some ways you can begin with:
- Objectify the Syllabus.
No doubt, the syllabus is huge but you must remind yourself that it is something that you are already familiar with. UPSC Pathshala recommends that you simply jot down the entire syllabus into points and divide them into sections according to your strengths and weaknesses, and then proceed with a study plan.
- Divide the Curriculum
It basically means that you divide the subjects into manageable parts. For Example:
Theory Papers: History, Economy, Polity, Geography, Optional subject (Demands your maximum time!)
Aptitude Test: CSAT (Demands little of your time and more of your intelligence!)
- Make a timetable and stick to it
Chart out a realistic timetable for yourself. Make sure you do not include more than 8 -10 hours a day. Once you have decided on the amount of time you will put in everyday and what topics you will cover when, make sure you follow it judiciously. At UPSC Pathshala, you get a fully engaging weekly time-table that helps you to utilize your time effectively.
- Take part in Quality Discussions
It is a very good habit to discuss the developments that are important for the UPSC Exam. All the former candidates who successfully cleared this exam would tell you how important this particular habit is. Good discussions automatically give you an edge over others, not just in Prelims and Mains, but in interviews as well. The mentors at UPSC Pathshala always encourage you to discuss various aspects of the UPSC syllabus and current affairs.
- Take Mock Tests Regularly
Make sure you take enough mock tests for both Prelims and Mains. This will prepare you both mentally and academically, before you step into the UPSC exam hall for your first attempt. Regular evaluations not only help you keep a track of your progress but you will also get to know your weaknesses and can work accordingly. This helps you keep yourself motivated. The mock test series at UPSC Pathshala are equipped with the latest questionnaire and are regarded as great confidence boosters, by all our students.
- Develop Answer Writing Skills
In an exam like the UPSC mains, studying the syllabus content is not the only important thing to do. It is equally important to write answers skillfully. How well you write the answers within three hours is what makes the difference. Therefore, having regular practice of essay/answer writing is highly necessary for you to write proper analytical answers. The mentors at UPSC Pathshala constantly monitor your answers and suggest ways to improve them. This is one of the major aspects of our programs.
- Do Not Ever Skip Newspapers
If there’s one thing that can guide you towards success, it’s the habit of scrutinizing the newspaper. Many UPSC exam questions come directly from the newspapers. Therefore, it becomes necessary on your part to know how to read a newspaper and what to read and what not to read. UPSC Pathshala does the job of skimming important news from the important news dailies, so that you don’t have to sit for hours with the newspaper.
- Sign up for professional guidance
Preparing for UPSC all by yourself is a mammoth task and you can often get distracted or demotivated. To help you get going through the lows, it is necessary that you seek professional help. Online tutorials like UPSC Pathshala provides personal mentorship programs, that allows you to get complete personalised guidance from expert teachers. You can also get access to a series of video classes, each about different subject concerns. A large section of students in the last few years have relied totally on online preparation. It provides you the freedom of time and location and frees you from the need of moving to another city.
