Cross the first hurdle between you and your dream “Become an IAS”

This blog came in shape due to my Hubby who always inspired me to write my experience and share it with others. He reminded me my potential like that someone reminded Hanuman to his potential. Anyways I will share my journey towards UPSC with my hubby in coming blogs…

I qualified prelims four times .I have gone through optional subject and GS pattern also. My score in GS was 45 questions in 2012,63 questions in 2014 and 66 questions in 2015.Key to my improvement in score is revision and solving questions as much as I could.

So u should start to revise traditional GS. Don’t read new material for traditional GS ,just revise what u have read till now .Revision is necessary to cut trap of negative marking.

I used to revise all subjects like history,geography,polity,environment,economics daily .Because I got bore while reading one subject daily.So its up to you.You can read and revise only one subject  or all subjects.

If you are not gud in CSAT,then practice CSAT for half an hour when u get bore with ur regular studies. I never practice CSAT,becuz I was comefortable with it.

I prepared current affairs from Chronicle,insightsonindia.com,iasbaba.com .Revise chronicles of last one year (August,2015-August,2016) as much as you can. I used to do underline imp points in book during reading and revised underline during revision.

Try to solve quiz which is posted in various website daily .Take last year papers of arahant and after reading a topic solve questions from that particular topic.

Books read by me     1.NCERT Books of all subjects
                                  2.Vipin Chandra and B L grover for History
                                  3.Lal and Lal for Economics
                                  4. Laxmikant for Polity
                                  5.Shankar IAS notes and K Sidarth for environment
                                  6.Boudhik Prakashan for Indian and World Geography
                                  7.Lucent General Science for Science

Key to success is Revision and solving questions As much As you can.

Hope this will help you.

Best of luck and tnx for inspiring me to write.
