Default Re: How to prepare for IAS

IAS - Indian Administrative Service is a career that cannot be compared to other jobs or services. Here I am giving you few tips that might help a person in clearing IAS examinations:

Exam Preparation Tips for IAS
-Must study 10 hours or more, every day
-Study in smart way which could mean reading selectively but reading well, reading many books selectively, mixing books and notes, making short notes, learning time management, taking mock tests and etc.
-In order to get an idea about the type of questions being asked, solved papers of past years should be referred to.
-It is also necessary to be updated in all fields, for instance History, Economy, Polity, etc and getting the best books for the same.
-A routine chart also helps in developing a concentrated approach for Mains as well as in preparing for most scoring parts of IAS Prelims syllabus early.
-Multi-tasking might lead to confusion, loss of concentration and lower output.
-It is also important to not to refer to more books than are absolutely required.
-In IAS Prelims, some sections are easier to score off than others and students should always aim to cover these sections first.
- Making short notes has always been a smart way to study and has always helped in revising quickly.
-These notes can be in the form of flash cards or micro notes on subjects like current affairs, GK, as well as other GS and optional topics.
- Should make it a habit of reading newspapers, the latest economic survey, all NCERT text books and good supplementary books for IAS available.
- Should have fun while preparing for IAS and hope for results to be fruitful.
