Time matters a lot to you

When you are at home, try to make a study room as your class room. It is really very necessary because our mind is habitual to it. There should be defined time for study like 9am to 5 pm (1 hour break). It is really going to work for you. If you are not able to have a study room then go to the public library of your city. Self discipline or time management will be needed at all the levels of UPSC exam so always be in disciplined from the very first day.

Take help from internet

Internet is the best tool as far as I am concerned about UPSC preparation. There are unlimited uses of internet in education. Students who are preparing for UPSC must use internet. They can find lots of communities on social networking websites who are preparing for IAS exam.

Also you can find best study material for your subjects. You can download previous year papers for free. There are many online portals who freely guide you throughout your whole preparation like us. So take advantages of this amazing tool.

Have some outing after a regular period of time

I never talk about becoming a bookworm and locking yourself in study room. If your mind is not open then how can you face the interview round. IAS exam is three stage processes. If you don’t clear the final step then only your friends are going to respect you that you have cleared two rounds of IAS exam but practically there is not benefit of it. Have some outing after a regular period of time.

It is not time pass but it is necessary because it will make your mind more fresh and aware. Outing can be like going for a one or two days trip or it can be taking a morning walk daily.

Never go off beat

As I have told you that it is your self confidence that will put you forward in the journey of IAS exam. Always try to be self motivated and positive all the time. If you go out of the beat then probably no one is going to help you. Everyone will be just making fun of you by saying you a “Devdas or IAS Bhai”. So it is up to you that how you manage this all. Learn how to do mediation daily because it will open many other paths for you that you can’t even imagine.
