Register for the recorded session and PDF of 50 themes for IAS Prelims 2023

The UPSC 2023 bell rang as soon as the UPSC mains 2022 exam ended. UPSC 2023 exam date is already out and Prelims are scheduled for May 28th, 2023. That’s just 8 months away. Acknowledging the high unpredictability, an infallible strategy, and previous years’- based trend analysis is of utmost importance. If you want to crack UPSC with a rank in 2023, no random study, nor every chapter from every subject is required. 

Reading and trying to memorize everything under the sun is a wrong and wasteful strategy. 

UPSC is often called an UnPredictable service commission. To a certain extent, this might be actually true as UPSC is evolving year by year, making changes to both its pattern and the way it asks questions, leaving aspirants in the hall flummoxed.

Unquestionably this highlights the need to adapt to the demands and expectations of UPSC. However, a thorough trend analysis reveals that there are certain topics or themes that are more important than others.

Since UPSC has no defined solution, reading and trying to memorize everything under the sun is a wrong and wasteful strategy. We need to go extremely selective and smart, rather than following an ‘eat it all’ strategy when it comes to preparing for Prelims.

Santosh sir, Assistant Commissioner, GST and guiding light for Smash Prelims Program (success rate of more than 80%) will be in CivilsDaily’s Delhi center. He will give the 50 most important themes for UPSC prelims 2023.
