Areas which trap the candidates in opting bad strategy:-

After doing extensive survey and research for UPSC strategy our team has concluded the reasons for being  UPSC  considered as the rocket science. Here we are listing them:-

  • Guidance –guidance is the thing which decides the strategy. There is lot of(and that means a lot of)material and strategy selling people who sell or tell which favours them. So here we are with a complete guidance (in form of UPSC STRATEGY) by the virtue of our experiences and research.
  • Competition– there is data that says that around 8 to 10 lacks opt for UPSC every year. So the race comes down to the selection of 3 candidates from 100. So to get edge over competition more sincere effort is need of the hour.
  • Study here study is smart study. This area is the honey pot to get trapped in vicious cycle of getting your morale down. Here the need to work is “efficient and effective strategies” not only study.
  • Mythsthere are several myths like myth no.1 there are lot of murmuring about a boy who didn’t studied hard, he use to study only on some days but he got passed because for passing exam you need to be confident( i.e. overconfidence)  Myth no 2 you can pass UPSC just by studying around exams.  These both are lie.

Both cases are myths so be true to your work and study.

Solution –  UPSC STRATEGY  should be sharp and effective and should include following :-

  • Belief –believe in yourself
  • Right books- choose right books because books are the virtues which will make your answer right.
  • Revision- whatever once read should be revised regularly.
  • Mock questions- attempt mock question as many as possible. It will make you learn faster and will sharpen your decision making in prelims.
