Yes....you are correct...wrongly written..
I got 4/10. Sir, I have started studying from June 1 and this will be my first attempt. What are the chances of me clearing the exam? Anybody reading this comment pls answer.
Sir, chances of getting select is directly proportional to the labour you do during your preparation. So only you can know how close you are to get into civil services.
work hard and get selected

You will the perfect answer if you question yourself because nobody else can value the amount of hard work you put in and how serious and confident you are about this exams.

Thank you guys for your opinions. But lately it has been difficult for me to cope with current affairs and I spend most of the days studying that instead of other subjects. Pls guide me what to do.

That is very common initially. You can avoid wasting your time by reading only the news which is only to the exam point of view. To improve reading the newspaper, you can watch Roman sir's lesson on how to read The Hindu. prepare a timetable specifying the time to be allotted for current affairs, then other subjects. If required you can divide the current affairs portion into 2 i.e., morning and evening. I usually read newspaper in the morning and go through insight ias in the evening during my tea break.

Do you make notes for the Hindu? For that where do you refer?
Asha Gosavi

I note only important key points as all the points are not important or rather I note the points which I might forget soon. It is very good if you understand what you read because that will stay in our head for a long time. It is always good to revise by the end of the day, by the end of every week and very important is by the end of every month.

Thank you ma'am. I have watched Roman sir's video which was indeed helpful. Now I will restrict newspaper reading to 2 hours possibly for tomorrow. Current affairs I can read for insights or Tina ma'am's videos. Which would you prefer?
Completely agree withAsha Gosavi.

There are many sources for current affairs but what matters the most is which you are comfortable with. few will understand through videos, few by self studies, few by research. So you have to choose which you are comfortable with. Thanks Sushant.
BTW asha mam which source are you following for current affairs apart from roman's sir mcqs.

Hello sir,this is Vaibhav.and I hv just started prep from 1jun. So I can only get 4/10
  1. Instructions As soon as the question appears, pause the video, answer the question and 0-2 resume it. Score Conclusion Very low chances of selection. There is no substitute for hard work. Can do better, need to grind more. Going good, almost there. Very high chances of selection 3-4 100% of the time, without fail, calculate your score and write it in 7-8 the comments section (Compete). 5-6 9-10
