The clock is ticking, the hours are going by. Some good 30 days are left for the UPSC Prelims, all your hardwork is going to be tested in a short span of just 2 hours.. It is the time to make utmost use of these days very effectively, focus more on execution rather than thinking “exam hoga, nii hoga”, as it is said “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”. We understand your concern in these uncertain times and that’s why to ease your preparation and to streamline it further, we’ve come up with another initiative i.e NIKALO PRELIMS 2.0 on our Habitat.
Focus of the Initiative:
Revision and intense interlinkage for extended understanding rather than mere expansion. Not taking something as obvious especially when it is important. Dealing with important issues on priority basis. Conceptual understanding so that even if closely framed sentences are given in a definition, selecting the appropriate becomes a habit. For instance, in PYQs one can find rephrased definition of judicial activism, liberty, etc which can not be marked correctly unless concepts are understood in revisions. Involving the area which can create confusion for most of the students. For example, status of pending bills with change in the government, devolution versus decentralisation, etc.
Revision not a business-as-usual:
Aspirant is expected to have concentrated enriched sessions of self-study to gain the benefits of this schedule. Rely on single source for each current and static portions.
Interlinkage is the key to gain access in the zone of confidence. Infact, a true candidate is the one who is motivated to generate probable questions while revising the course content. This not only helps to grasp the topic better also create different possible dimensions in which question might be asked.
Here, the involvement is active. Not merely passive that is to say only depending upon what’s being provided. Discussion is to include even the missing zones in individual’s preparation. Even, if you are at your very first reading of the syllabus, this is equally important for you to make this part of preparation for this Pre-2020. It will increase the pace of syllabus coverage since this is a time bound and practical initiative. Also, you will know how much importance is to be given to one topic or sub-topic.
Once done with this cycle of discussion and interaction you will be comfortable with concepts and your strengths.
The coverage of topics list and approach is comprehensive.
For any incremental needs which we see during the process, why don’t we start our regular engagement at revision interactions to yield better!!
Not just the start. Let’s make it a habit to improve consistently on daily basis even by 1% better efforts than that of the previous day’s and meaningful discussion. Consequently, one can improve huge margins towards the end of this initiative. This is the power of compounding.
