  3. Planning the next 65 days 1. Make your and especially for a difficult conc ept 2. Revise your previous notes when starting your studies the next day 3. Practise UPSC previous year question papers (Last 10 Years) You also need to make smart choices from amongst the available options in the question and learn to eliminate the wrong options to zero in on the right answer 4.

  4. How to Study for Prelims? There is not a perfect plan that suits every student for preparation You will have to have your own unique plan, depending upon your strengths and weaknesses From now onwards, your sole focus should be on Prelims preparation

  5. 1. Analyzing Prelims Trends Each year there is a change in Prelims question pattern and no one subject has gained equal weightage year on year Also, current-affairs based questions have been expanded in the scope to cover even Static subjects like History and Geography. Previously, Polity CA was common

  6. 2. Connecting the Dots Try to superimpose current affairs over all topics For example, in Polity or Economy, apart from reading the static theory portion, you need to keep an eye on current happenings If the Govt brings in Constitutional amendment for GST, you should read about Constitutional amendment procedure, I ypes of taxes && Fiscal Policy etc Do this for all subjects whenever reading/revising current affairs

  7. 3. Reading the recommended books At this point of time only selective reading will help This implies that instead of reading the book cover to cover, you need to make notes of topics based on past five years Prelims question papers Try to understand the kind of questions UPSC has been asking. This will give you a understanding of what's important and what's not (Example: Parliament structure and functioning is important, Lok Sabha speaker's name is not)

  8. 4. Avoid Confusionn Read only few books/notes and restrain from reading any new material/magazine although it might be very tempting You might come across hundreds of PDF compilations etc that flood the market at this point of time for Prelims preparation Not all of them are to be read, however big recommendations your friends make Read only the trusted notes which are constantly delivering good returns on investment

  9. 5. Building Concepts is Important The questions in Prelims as well as Mains are becoming more conceptual which need a thorough reading of all topics instead of a cursory reading You need to understand each and every important concept and make sure you don't make a mistake while attempting questions related to those. This is especially true for Polity, Economy and Geography as these subjects still provide static questions in the exam

  10. 6. Revision is the Key For any exam you attempt in life, revision is most important aspect Without it, you will not be able to recollect whatever you may have read Dedicate adequate time for revision each day so that all that you have read is retained in memory until the exam

  11. Strategy for the next 65 days S&T - Day 33 to Day 36 Indian Geography - Day 37 to Day 40 World Geography - Day 41 to Day 44 History - Day 45 to Day 48 Current Affairs - Day 49 to Day 52 Economics - Day 53 to Day 56 Polity - Day 57 to Day 60 Revision Day 61 to Day 65
