Book your FREE 1-1 session for this 6 pillared approach and we’ll also share UPSC Prelims 2024 Toolkit to get you started in the right direction

Hey there UPSC 2024 aspirants! Are you still lost in the coaching vs self-study debate? Let me tell you, my friend, there’s only one answer to cracking the UPSC Civil Services exam in 2023-24 – consistent 5 hours of self-study every day.

Yes, you heard it right!

Whether you are taking coaching or not, whether you are in Delhi, the Mecca of UPSC Preparation, or in a remote village of Assam, only a disciplined self-study approach can guarantee you success.

A lack of a self-study regime will make you feel unfulfilled, frustrated, and lost.

Consistent 5 hr/day self-study is all you need!

The 6 Pillars of Effective Self-Study

Failing to incorporate any one of these pillars, feeds into a vicious cycle. Without guidance or mentoring, understanding where the problem lies in and how to rectify it becomes problematic.

First up, strategy! You need a game plan to tackle the mammoth UPSC syllabus. We aren’t talking about a toppers’ strategy that you might have encountered on youtube. A strategy personalized for you, based on your learning style, the time you have, your prep situation.

Second, create a flexible timetable to ensure you cover all the subjects on time. It’s all about managing your time for UPSC Preparation if you’re a working Professional or a full-time aspirant & how to utilize the time, left in your hand, in the best possible way.

Third, set measurable time-bound targets for daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly preparation. Set realistic targets for yourself and make sure you achieve them. Break down your preparation into smaller milestones to stay motivated.

Fourth, gather the most specific UPSC-relevant study material and resources to avoid information overload.

Fifth, regularly evaluate your progress to identify the critical gaps in your preparation. You should be able to measure your progress, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

And lastly, create a feedback mechanism to incorporate improvements into your preparation. This is essential so that you are utilizing the compounding effect in your prep.

Yes, we know that even to a UPSC veteran it might seem easier said than done.
