  3. Reading n number of books for a single topic For example Current affairs- my experience . GS- History . Websites

  4. Solely relying on Coaching Facilitator-Bhag milkha Bhag > Number of students attending- success ratio self study

  5. lgnoring boring but important topics Definition of boring vary! For me- science tech- GS3 79 . Don't do it If u ignore it, you will be ignored

  6. Studying irrelevant topics UPSC-CSE = Ocean So you cannot prepare for everything People reading Sarva shiksha abhiyan- is it in news? If you try to hold EVERYTHING, you hold NOTHING" o ii

  7. Reading without analyzing UPSC-CSE How to read? Which are the most important topics? (perpetual state of confusion) = what UPSC CSE is? 1 month- analysis i.e Syllabus + Previous years question paper

  8. Motivation Hard work Focus Consistency Patience & so on

  9. answer Why do you want to join Civil services?

  10. Wasting time - Gossips - Social media He did this n that Oh he is having reservation
