Registration form Closing Today || How To Complete Your UPSC IAS Syllabus And Manage Your Time? A Complete Guide To UPSC Preparation on How to Create a Perfect Personalised Timetable

Aspirants,

The UPSC exam is undoubtedly the toughest exam in India with a syllabus so vast that most students feel overwhelmed within just a few weeks of starting their preparation. 

In fact, the 2 biggest problems students face while preparing for this exam are:

  1. Syllabus Management And
  2. Time Management

FACT: As an aspirant, you can either spend a lot of time and effort trying to figure out how to cope with your syllabus and manage time or you can simply speak with our mentors and get the right study plan and timetable custom-made for you!

So, how can you learn to manage time and your syllabus? Here’s what you can do!

  • Syllabus Management:
    • Go through the entire syllabus thoroughly.
    • Mark the topics you feel comfortable with and those you aren’t familiar with.
    • Break down the syllabus into small parts and prioritise them in order.
    • Gather the relevant study material for the syllabus and start studying them in order.
    • Figure out where you need guidance – Is it with the subject matter? Do you need help with organising your syllabus? Or you just aren’t sure how to begin?

Our guidance program is, in fact, designed specifically to solve this problem. We speak with students personally and understand their concerns on a one-on-one basis. Our mentors spend time understanding the individual requirements of our students and teach students how to break down the syllabus and create a plan they can stick to.

This is what our mentors do after speaking one-on-one with students:

  1. They assess the students and understand their requirements.
  2. They develop a study plan for the students that match their learning abilities.
  3. They break down the syllabus for the student to make it easier for them to cope.
  4. They provide important study material so that the student doesn’t feel lost.
  5. They provide regular feedback to students to help them remain focused.
  6. They handhold the students at every stage of the exam, supporting them with all their needs.
  • Time Management:
    • Prioritise your study material
    • Complete the easier topics first.
    • Allocate at least one hour to answer-writing
    • Allocate at least one hour to MCQ practice
    • Make notes on Current Affairs while reading the newspapermatter?
    • Allocate at least 2 hours for your optional.

This plan, however, does not suit everyone since every student has a different learning pace and different time available. Our guidance program solves this problem by creating a personalised timetable for you after speaking with you personally. Our mentors understand the requirements of students and they know which topics require how much time. That is why they prepare a customised timetable for you and all you need to do is follow it!

So, if you are starting to prepare for the exam, do not waste your time trying to reinvent the wheel. Just get in touch with us and we will create a study plan that is based around you. 

Limited slots are available. Don’t wait, get in touch immediately!

Few Kind Words before we wrap up.

How To Complete Your UPSC IAS Syllabus And Manage Your Time? A Complete Guide To UPSC Preparation on How to Create a Perfect Personalised Timetable

Aspirants,

The UPSC exam is undoubtedly the toughest exam in India with a syllabus so vast that most students feel overwhelmed within just a few weeks of starting their preparation. 

In fact, the 2 biggest problems students face while preparing for this exam are:

  1. Syllabus Management And
  2. Time Management

FACT: As an aspirant, you can either spend a lot of time and effort trying to figure out how to cope with your syllabus and manage time or you can simply speak with our mentors and get the right study plan and timetable custom-made for you!

So, how can you learn to manage time and your syllabus? Here’s what you can do!

  • Syllabus Management:
    • Go through the entire syllabus thoroughly.
    • Mark the topics you feel comfortable with and those you aren’t familiar with.
    • Break down the syllabus into small parts and prioritise them in order.
    • Gather the relevant study material for the syllabus and start studying them in order.
    • Figure out where you need guidance – Is it with the subject matter? Do you need help with organising your syllabus? Or you just aren’t sure how to begin?

Our guidance program is, in fact, designed specifically to solve this problem. We speak with students personally and understand their concerns on a one-on-one basis. Our mentors spend time understanding the individual requirements of our students and teach students how to break down the syllabus and create a plan they can stick to.

This is what our mentors do after speaking one-on-one with students:

  1. They assess the students and understand their requirements.
  2. They develop a study plan for the students that match their learning abilities.
  3. They break down the syllabus for the student to make it easier for them to cope.
  4. They provide important study material so that the student doesn’t feel lost.
  5. They provide regular feedback to students to help them remain focused.
  6. They handhold the students at every stage of the exam, supporting them with all their needs.
  • Time Management:
    • Prioritise your study material
    • Complete the easier topics first.
    • Allocate at least one hour to answer-writing
    • Allocate at least one hour to MCQ practice
    • Make notes on Current Affairs while reading the newspapermatter?
    • Allocate at least 2 hours for your optional.

This plan, however, does not suit everyone since every student has a different learning pace and different time available. Our guidance program solves this problem by creating a personalised timetable for you after speaking with you personally. Our mentors understand the requirements of students and they know which topics require how much time. That is why they prepare a customised timetable for you and all you need to do is follow it!

How To Complete Your UPSC IAS Syllabus And Manage Your Time? A Complete Guide To UPSC Preparation on How to Create a Perfect Personalised Timetable

Aspirants,

The UPSC exam is undoubtedly the toughest exam in India with a syllabus so vast that most students feel overwhelmed within just a few weeks of starting their preparation. 

In fact, the 2 biggest problems students face while preparing for this exam are:

  1. Syllabus Management And
  2. Time Management

FACT: As an aspirant, you can either spend a lot of time and effort trying to figure out how to cope with your syllabus and manage time or you can simply speak with our mentors and get the right study plan and timetable custom-made for you!

So, how can you learn to manage time and your syllabus? Here’s what you can do!

  • Syllabus Management:
    • Go through the entire syllabus thoroughly.
    • Mark the topics you feel comfortable with and those you aren’t familiar with.
    • Break down the syllabus into small parts and prioritise them in order.
    • Gather the relevant study material for the syllabus and start studying them in order.
    • Figure out where you need guidance – Is it with the subject matter? Do you need help with organising your syllabus? Or you just aren’t sure how to begin?

Our guidance program is, in fact, designed specifically to solve this problem. We speak with students personally and understand their concerns on a one-on-one basis. Our mentors spend time understanding the individual requirements of our students and teach students how to break down the syllabus and create a plan they can stick to.

This is what our mentors do after speaking one-on-one with students:

  1. They assess the students and understand their requirements.
  2. They develop a study plan for the students that match their learning abilities.
  3. They break down the syllabus for the student to make it easier for them to cope.
  4. They provide important study material so that the student doesn’t feel lost.
  5. They provide regular feedback to students to help them remain focused.
  6. They handhold the students at every stage of the exam, supporting them with all their needs.
  • Time Management:
    • Prioritise your study material
    • Complete the easier topics first.
    • Allocate at least one hour to answer-writing
    • Allocate at least one hour to MCQ practice
    • Make notes on Current Affairs while reading the newspapermatter?
    • Allocate at least 2 hours for your optional.

This plan, however, does not suit everyone since every student has a different learning pace and different time available. Our guidance program solves this problem by creating a personalised timetable for you after speaking with you personally. Our mentors understand the requirements of students and they know which topics require how much time. That is why they prepare a customised timetable for you and all you need to do is follow it!

So, if you are starting to prepare for the exam, do not waste your time trying to reinvent the wheel. Just get in touch with us and we will create a study plan that is based around you. 

Limited slots are available. Don’t wait, get in touch immediately!

Few Kind Words before we wrap up.

Registration form Closing Today || How To Complete Your UPSC IAS Syllabus And Manage Your Time? A Complete Guide To UPSC Preparation on How to Create a Perfect Personalised Timetable

Aspirants,

The UPSC exam is undoubtedly the toughest exam in India with a syllabus so vast that most students feel overwhelmed within just a few weeks of starting their preparation. 

In fact, the 2 biggest problems students face while preparing for this exam are:

  1. Syllabus Management And
  2. Time Management

FACT: As an aspirant, you can either spend a lot of time and effort trying to figure out how to cope with your syllabus and manage time or you can simply speak with our mentors and get the right study plan and timetable custom-made for you!

So, how can you learn to manage time and your syllabus? Here’s what you can do!

  • Syllabus Management:
    • Go through the entire syllabus thoroughly.
    • Mark the topics you feel comfortable with and those you aren’t familiar with.
    • Break down the syllabus into small parts and prioritise them in order.
    • Gather the relevant study material for the syllabus and start studying them in order.
    • Figure out where you need guidance – Is it with the subject matter? Do you need help with organising your syllabus? Or you just aren’t sure how to begin?

Our guidance program is, in fact, designed specifically to solve this problem. We speak with students personally and understand their concerns on a one-on-one basis. Our mentors spend time understanding the individual requirements of our students and teach students how to break down the syllabus and create a plan they can stick to.

This is what our mentors do after speaking one-on-one with students:

  2. They develop a study plan for the students that match their learning abilities.
  3. They break down the syllabus for the student to make it easier for them to cope.
  4. They provide important study material so that the student doesn’t feel lost.
  5. They provide regular feedback to students to help them remain focused.
  6. They handhold the students at every stage of the exam, supporting them with all their needs.
  • Time Management:
    • Prioritise your study material
    • Complete the easier topics first.
    • Allocate at least one hour to answer-writing
    • Allocate at least one hour to MCQ practice
    • Make notes on Current Affairs while reading the newspapermatter?
    • Allocate at least 2 hours for your optional.

This plan, however, does not suit everyone since every student has a different learning pace and different time available. Our guidance program solves this problem by creating a personalised timetable for you after speaking with you personally. Our mentors understand the requirements of students and they know which topics require how much time. That is why they prepare a customised timetable for you and all you need to do is follow it!

STREAK DAILY INITIATIVE (Free initiative by CD for UPSC Preparation)

Guru Dronacharya had instructed the cook at the ashram to not serve his students’ food at night. One day, however, the dinner got delayed. While everyone was eating at night, suddenly, the lights went off. As Arjuna ate in the dark, he realized that there was automatic coordination between his hands and mouth. He did not require vision to put his hand into his mouth. This was an amazing discovery for him. This meant that he could orient himself to shoot the target even in the night, through his other senses. He immediately took up his bow and arrow to practice in the dark. And from then on, the entire month, he would practice day and night!

Day and night- just practice.

If you want to ace the UPSC examination, then PRACTICE is your only option. Arjuna had practiced for decades before his real test in the Mahabharata war. Even you need the same discipline, consistency, and hard work to clear this examination.

On a daily basis, UPSC Aspirants faces a lot of issues like

  • What to read, what not to read and how to read?
  • Whether our timetable is realistic to not only finish, but also provide space for revision?
  • Whether we are on the right track or not? 

Sometimes, despite putting 12-16 hours in a day aspirants don’t feel satisfied.

STREAK INITIATIVE AS A SOLUTION

We plan to solve the puzzle of inconsistency to achieve daily, weekly and monthly targets through this STREAK initiative. 

Have a look at the video below by Ravi sir to understand WHAT STREAK INITIATIVE IS ABOUT? And how it can help you on a daily basis.

On a weekly basis, a schedule will be given to you which you can finish. This will ensure proper guidance to finish the syllabus.

Then in the evening, we will post questions to practice. Then later on daily basis videos dealing with these questions, from Prelims and Mains will be released.

Prelims will be handled by Santosh Sir and Mains by Sukanya Ma’am.

A quick bit about Sukanya Ma’am

Zoom Webinar Joining Link

Meeting ID: 960 7782 8072
Passcode: 737268


Dear Aspirants,

Click here to register for the webinar


We had started Working Junta COHORT 1 in May 2021. Little did we know, that it will turn into a great way to help our working junta community in such a big way. Hence we worked out means to start a COHORT 2 ( as promised ) for Working Junta starting August 2021. This would be of great help to those figuring out things a bit late but STILL WITHIN TIME.

With the passing of July, we are also nearing the end of the Green Zone on the UPSC Calendar for 2022. This is Green Zone because you are in complete control of your entire preparation process. With enough time even for working professionals. To make enough head-rooms for a planned progression. This helps in course completion or maybe selection finally.


Remember Yellow Zone that starts in September is only for those who can invest full time in exam preparation. We would not induct working professionals post-August.


Now coming to UPSC Civil Servants life. It’s not anybody’s guess why in general life army personnel are always disciplined. Their precision in every field of life is emulatable. They almost internalise these everyday learnings and develop them as lifestyle traits.


The case is very similar with the civil services aspirants too, who take up the task of clearing one of the toughest exams in India, in addition to being a working professional. Given the rigours of life they are subjected to, they already know what they have to sacrifice and what regime they need to follow.

If we sift through the previous year results, we can easily come across such examples. Aspirants facing the harshness of the work environment are bound to earn the incentives of time management, critical thinking and discipline. I mean, who would not remember Anu Kumari here. Despite being a working woman, a wife and a mother, she proved many of her naysayers wrong. Mind you, she was not working but was also a lady in many life roles with a two-year-old kid wanting the comfort of a mother’s presence.


Now if she is not enough motivation, what else is! She is a shining star in our Hall of Fame. Okay, let me mention another bright example, Kunal Aggarwal. He was very well sorted and settled with a decent life at Goldman Sachs. Dream job for many. Navigating all the odds at work and busy schedules, he managed to follow the guidelines provided by CivilsDaily, he made it through in stages. There’s a story we will discuss in our webinar. He is again an example worth following. Our hall of fame is actually full of many such names.

We can go on and on with a line-up that may never end. But the bottom line, which most of our successful working aspirants agreed with, was the time management and course curriculum. The able guidance team and the evidence-based entire training structure pays at the end when the final recommendation list comes out. Trust me, we are elated. At times more than our students.


So, let me invite you to the webinar which I am specifically holding for Working Professionals or Junta on the coming Sunday 23rd May at 3 PM afternoon. It will be epic in many ways. We will discuss many doubts faced by the working junta over a one-to-one live chat. Also, we will come to know about the specifics of the exam and the evolving pattern.


Summarily, in this webinar, you can expect to learn about:

  • Access to Complete Samachar Manthan 2022 series videos for latest 3 Weeks ( Approx 20 Hrs )
  • Learn about Mistakes that can cost you an attempt?
  • What to do to master the IAS-Exam being a working professional?
  • Have you heard of Our “5-hour Step-by-Step learning plan”?
  • An interactive Q&A session with an experienced audience?
  • Important CivilsDaily softcopies takeaway for exam preparation.

Moreover, if UPSC 2022 is your first attempt, I will talk to you.
But for that, book your seat in this webinar by filling up a small form with your details and one specific query which you want to get addressed.

Meet you soon!
