Strategy - 101

UPSC Civil Services Prelims 2020 is only 8 weeks away. You would want to think in a mere 8 weeks you can fully prepare all subjects. Fact is no you cannot.

More interestingly and thankfully so, another fact is that you don’t even have to fully prepare them too. Here is how you need to strategize for the remaining period of your prelims preparation days.

  1. Your preparation is yours. Not everyone’s. So do what YOU need the most.
  2. Devote time to topics. Don’t rush through them. Cover things nicely.
  3. Practice Questions. Hone your analytical skills. Keep looking for potential Q’s areas
  4. Stick to Basics. Do not read from many sources. Important is to Re-read
  5. Build a Structure. And Start to Form Inter-Linkages Now.

Well, if you can follow these 5 simple steps, then you are surely on the right track. However, it is not as simple as it sounds. For this strategy to work you will have to stick to it daily and make sure you are making the maximum of the day. Within a couple of weeks you will realize that you actually were able to cover a lot of topics without fretting much.

However, if you are not able to follow or stick to this strategy – all is not lost. For those who feel that they are just not fully prepared for the UPSC Prelims 2020 attempt I suggest do not waste time in confusion or dilemma about whether to appear or not to appear. Just keep working hard…

This is the best time to slog and work as much as possible. The decision to appear or not in the exam can be taken later. So, right now only time you have is to study with the right focus and zero pressure.
