To all #UPSC aspirants

The last 50 days should be a sprint.

What does it mean?

1. Basic subjects: Revising all the basic subjects at least for 3 times. If this has to happen, then stop allocating more than 5 days for any subject. Be aware of 2 traps here

Trap 1: I am a fresher so I need more days to finish a subject. Irrespective of you being a fresher or not, by now you would’ve read the subject at least twice. So stop making excuses and push.

Trap 2: Wanting to be perfect in the subject. Perfection comes through iteration so don’t sit on one subject for many days. (3/7)

To all #UPSC aspirants

Many students complain that, when they are reading the books the second time, they feel like they have forgotten everything what they had studied the first time.

Read this thread to find out the reason and how to eliminate that feeling. (1/5)

The reason why you feel this way is because of your expectation to be perfect.

You are expecting to know every line just by reading the book once or twice. This expectation is itself wrong.

Then how to go about it. (2/5)

Firstly, ur clarity of concepts comes thru several iterations of reading the same sources. So expecting to get clarity on all concepts in the first or second round itself is being unfair to oneself.
As u read the same source many times, ur grip over the subject strengthens.(3/5)

Afraid of #UPSCPrelims CSAT?

If yes, then do the following. I scored 131 last year with the same method without any extraordinary effort.

A thread 🧵 👇
1) Search for syllogism, number system, sequence & series, time & distance, percentage system tricks on Youtube.
2) Note down the tricks and then solve 5 to 10 question from each.
3) Do not miss calendar and clocks as these are low hanging fruits if practiced properly.
4) Then solve last 4 years PYQs.
5) For reading comprehension, no need of extra effort just read properly and use common sense.

I personally feel there is no need of wasting money on coaching mocks.

So the #UPSC Civil Services 2023 notification is out...

Things to be prioritised now...

1. At whatever stage of mains you are,now stop there and start prelims preparation.(Seniors can manage it in two months too)
Remember, without passing prelims, there is no entry for mains.
2. Around 120 days you have got for the prelims.
Manage them in such a way as to get atleast two revisions.
I gave around 50 days for first basic reading of the syllabus.
Then 30 days for first revision,
Then 25 days for second revision.
Last 15 days for rapid 3rd revision
You can adjust your days for any possible combinations based on preparation.

3.while completing your first reading, it is advisable that you also go through sectional tests.
If I am reading modern India,then I will simultaneously solve Test on Modern India, like 50 qstn
