Strategy for next 50 days for Prelims-2021

In UPSC prelims, it is not the number of questions that you attempt but the number of mistakes you make decides whether you will score above 120 plus or even qualify at all. 

Based on attempts in practice tests and number of mistakes in tests, you fall into these categories:

  1. Red Zone category:- mistakes 25 and above
  2. Orange zone category:- mistakes 15 to 25
  3. Green zone category:- mistakes less than 15.

A. RED ZONE CATEGORY: You may continue to attempt only 100% sure options until you have clarity in topic and have enhanced understanding. Once you have revised the content multiple times through keywords and notes, you can increase the number of attempts. There is no space for elimination and guesswork. Watch daily videos of Streak posted by Sukanya mam or me on Civilsdaily YouTube channel and revise the topics covered in those videos.

B. ORANGE ZONE CATEGORY: This category aspirants need to bring mistakes below by 15. Complete short keyword notes for all subjects by 5th September. Avoid guess work and learn and practice the question solving techniques such as FCE (Factual Conceptual and Elimination) approach. Watch daily videos posted on YouTube by Sukanya and me for prelims. We have covered questions on most probable topics on economy, polity, and science & tech discussion. Revise those topics if need be.

C. GREEN ZONE CATEGORY: Complete all your keyword notes by September 1st. Move on to the full test only after you have completed all keywords for static and current affairs. Continue to interlink them, do 360 exercises. and bring mistakes to below 10.

WAY FORWARD FOR ALL FOR PRELIMS-2021 in the next 50 days:

1. There are no mistakes such as silly mistakes you make because either you are not reading properly or don’t remember them. Also, it happens when you are under confident or overconfident.

2. Only intelligent elimination should be opted and that also can only work if you have clarity of topics and learn things holistically.

3. Revision should be holistic. If you have not done an in-depth study of Polity, History and Environment even once, then it is high time. Do it now before September 1st and then continue revisions. Keep making a mental map of everything you study and do it actively – not passively. Keep pen and paper always ready while reading anything and note down important keywords.

4. Do not take new sources for revision. Do not fall into the trap of grabbing and learning from new materials for the same topic.

5. No need to go for a bulky compilation for Current Affairs just before exam or right now. Focus on the monthly magazine of CD or any other which you have already been referring to but “ONLY ONE SOURCE.” 

The weightage of CA in prelims has declined to less than 20%; and if you continue to waste your valuable time on bulky round the year compilations, then it is not a good cost-benefit analysis. Focus on the concept part of any CA topic and link with it. 

6. Try to learn from the tests as much as while solving paper and FCE approach while analysing the paper. This exercise will continue up until your last test.

7. There is no need to panic even if you score less in tests. My advice would be to go back to your sources, revise it again, and try to memorise whatever you are not able to remember easily. Then, again come back and give the test and analyse the paper and note down what you do not know.

8. Enhance your knowledge and understand and learn topics by revising previous-year papers multiple times.

9. Confidence is a function of knowledge, revision, and testing. If you have not done all these three, you will never feel confident. Hence, please make it your utmost priority. Some of my students who are part of ongoing super-25 have improved their confidence and more assured towards success in prelims

10. Prelims is something which you can only qualify with proper well-planned process – no element of luck here. All you have to do is follow the process discussed above.

This has worked for me to score up to 145 twice and always 120 plus in all 6 attempts. So, I am confident that it will work for you too. 

Only barrier between your success and your failure is YOU. If required, change yourself and keep working on your strengths and weaknesses.

Please reach out to me if you face any issue or if you need any kind of support.

Thank you all.

Do Not FEAR Inconsistency, FIGHT It!

Read on if you often find yourself trapped in inconsistency. We have got a proven formula to get you out of it. 

 “If a child doesn’t fall, would it ever learn to walk?

Does the child fear falling? No.

Does the child give up? No.

Does the child get back up and try again? Yes. Does the child succeed? Yes.

So can you!”

The concept of getting back up and trying again is inherent in everyone. None of us are machines that can all the time. As humans, inconsistency is part of our nature. But the difference between people who succeed and those who don’t is that successful people do not fear inconsistency. They know it, understand it, get back up, and fight it.

Here’s the thing: You are not alone! Every aspirant feels the fear of inconsistency. But there’s a simple way to beat it.

After speaking with 10000+ aspirants we realised that there are 3 basic reasons for inconsistency among the aspirants. We were able to understand these reasons. Find practical solutions that help students become calmer, consistent, and turn their fear into focus.

A) Overwhelmed by the syllabus – Most of the students start studying with full force. But as they get deeper into the course material, they start feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the syllabus. It’s exactly like diving into an open ocean without a life jacket for support. What should I study? Which books should I complete? Where do I find relevant course material? Did I miss something? What if I am reading the wrong things? Oh, my god! What should I do?

This feeling can create panic and make you lose focus. This makes you inconsistent in your approach. But what if you had a guide who spoke to you and helped you define the course structure? What if you had a mentor who guided you and told you what’s important and what’s not? What if there was a person who understood your fear and created a personal schedule for you to get back on track? Believe it or not, having such a person for support makes all the difference in the world.

And this is what our mentors do, help you swim when you feel like you are drowning.

B) Fatigue – You have been studying long and hard. You have written essays, answers, and practiced MCQs. You are reading many newspapers and about a thousand different topics in a day. The entire cycle continues for 365 long days. It is natural to feel fatigued. It is human to feel tired. It is necessary to take a break. BUT it is a ‘must’ to get back again.

This is where your mentor comes to your rescue. Your mentor helps you cope with the syllabus. They tell you how much effort you should spend on which topics. They help create a study pattern around your strengths so that your efforts are not wasted. So, you do not feel tired. You get proven practical tips to crack the exam without burdening you with irrelevant information. They help you create a smart balance that ensures you keep going strong for as long as it takes!

The mentors won’t make you super-human, they make you smarter-human!

C) No support structure – Ask any person who has succeeded in this exam and  they’ll tell you that a support structure is the most important thing in cracking this exam. Having someone you can speak to openly can make a world of difference. Imagine having someone you speak to about the things that scare you. The things that make you inconsistent. The things that are holding you back. Imagine having someone who does not see you as a machine but as a human and helps support you when you are down. Imagine having someone who has your back, no matter what!

Yes, a mentor is that friend and guide who knows what you are going through and also how to help you. A mentor helps identify the cause of your inconsistency and solves it for you so that you can focus on your study. Finally, a mentor is someone who guides you both emotionally and intellectually to remove your fear and replace it with the will to fight!

This is why our mentorship program produces results day-in and day-out. For our mentors, you are not machines. You are students who will have periods of inconsistency but our mentors will not let that kill your dreams. They will lift you up in your worst times and they will guide you well in your best times.

So, come, speak to us. Join and experience our one on one mentorship program.  Tell us what makes you inconsistent, and our mentors will find a way to beat it. Replace fear with a will to fight. You work on your studies, leave the rest to us. Connect with us, there’s no harm in giving it a shot!

HOW TO WRITE PERFECT ANSWERS IN UPSC MAINS?

Click to register and get a free handout on Important tips for Mains answer writing

One of the greatest student in Indian History is Arjuna. His dedication and hard work to improve his skill of archery are unmatched.

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 your mains answer writing, then PRACTICE is your only option. Arjuna had practiced for decades before his real test in the Mahabharata war. Even you need to start your answer writing from day one and not leave it for “after the prelims” approach.

Be Arjuna of Answer writing!

Why Answer writing from Day 1 is necessary?

Let me first develop enough knowledge to write answers: This is the biggest lie we tell ourselves. There is no such thing as “ENOUGH” in UPSC preparation. It is better to train ourselves from Day 1 – How to apply the knowledge that I have?

Your knowledge is tested through your answers: If you have not learned the art to articulate your thoughts on paper, then that’s a disaster waiting to happen. Studying and writing answers is a symbiotic relationship and one reinforces the other.

Prelims Magic: We all want quick results, we want our answers to be brilliant within a week after we clear prelims. Hence, the common excuse – I will deal with answer writing after prelims. Sorry to break it to you but magic is limited to Harry Potter books.

Advantages of starting writing answer early:
  • Helps you retain concepts, facts, and figures.
  • Learning the trick to formulate the structure of the answer.
  • Helps to revise things and learn new things not covered by conventional books.
  • Improves your writing speed, and handwriting.

Some common mistakes students make in answer writing

  • Not understanding the demand of the Question: Words like ‘Examine’, ‘Comment’, or ‘Discuss’ are used for a reason in the questions. Why would UPSC use different words if it wants the same structure from each question?
  • Structure a Mental Framework: If you lack the practice then, you are not able to create a mental framework. This leads to poor answers- you write points as you remember in a haphazard manner. This completely compromises your presentation.
  • Introduction, body, and conclusion: This is the ideal structure for the mains answer. One very common mistake is that students have a tendency to generalize the introduction and conclusion. Along with this, the scope of dimensions in the body is limited.
  • Low hanging fruits: Some elements in your answer like a diagram, reports/commissions, and supreme court judgments can uplift the quality of your answers. Students have a tendency to skip them.

These are just a few mistakes, in the initial phase of answer writing, students make a lot of such mistakes which can cost them marks. The real Smart study is to overcome such silly mistakes in your answer writing from the very start.

Afraid to fail your exam? What if you knew this?

Finding success in the UPSC journey requires every aspirant to identify their “weak” areas and rectify them.

I think my number of revisions of the syllabus is still less.

Why are my marks stagnant in the mock test? Do I need a new book?

Should I change the optional subject?

At one point during preparation days, these questions cross every aspirant’s mind. While it is important to have the right technique aka “smart study” strategy for this examination but is that enough?

What about that crazy SELF-DOUBT VOICE in the head? What about those SLEEPLESS ANXIETY-filled nights? What about those LACK OF SUPPORT LOOKS you get when you did not clear prelims for the 3rd time? What about that FEELING OF GUILT that prevents you from having a day off? And finally what about the SUFFOCATION you feel carrying so much mental stress on your shoulders?

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.(Also provided at the bottom of the article)

MENTAL HEALTH as an issue has always carried a sense of stigma in Indian society. So, why should the stress and anxiety associated with UPSC preparation be treated any differently!

Even if you are one of those courageous extroverts who speak about these mental challenges, you always have that one friend who sends you a motivational quote to get you over your MOOD SWINGS with some extra advice to memorize the quote as it can be helpful for GS 4 and essay.

Honestly, sometimes you need more than a motivational quote. In our interaction with some 1000+ students, even the smallest act of acknowledging an aspirant’s anxiety and stress can go a long way in maintaining the right frame of mind during preparation.

Emotional Stability is crucial to remain sane during this preparation and also to enjoy the whole process. The first step towards a balanced approach is to identify that as a human having lows and highs is pretty much normal. If you are not able to finish the decided target, then it is alright to feel bad and push yourself a little extra for the next day. What you need to avoid is “unhealthy behaviour”. For example, putting yourself under so much pressure that your performance starts to deteriorate or belittling yourself that it starts to affect your confidence.

We are not here to diagnose any clinical conditions. But as former aspirants and gaining years of experience through mentorship, we are a big advocate of people’s interaction for healthy minds.

Sometimes, in this preparation, all you need is a person to hear you out and understand you. And unfortunately, some of us are not able to find that one person in our family or friends. There is no shame in asking for emotional help. It helps if you have a person who can listen to your worries and reduce some of your pressure. Talking to your mentor can make you feel supported in the toughest times. The worst part of silo preparation is that aspirants tend to create the idea that all these emotional upheavals are exclusive to them. Trust us this is not true!

A holistic UPSC preparation includes the right technique to complete your syllabus, revisions and mock test and a healthy mindset.

Reach out to us if you feel like nothing is going right in your preparation. Talk to our mentors about your emotional worries, and remove the burden of anxieties from your preparation.

Fill up the SAMANVAYA form and we will reach out to you.

Before we end this, here is a video testimonial about one of our student from MENTORSHIP PROGRAM.

Sweety Raj joined the Ultimate Assessment Program (mentorship program) in October 2020. She works in a Bank as a Probationary Officer. Over time she has shown the quality of perseverance as despite having a job and responsibilities of being a mother of 2, she studies for 6-7 hrs a day.

Due to a lack of proper direction and perfect micro as well as macro strategy, she couldn’t get the expected results. Then, Sweety joined Ultimate Assessment Program-2021, and in this time span of 7-8 months, she started scoring well in prelims and mains answer writing also improved exponentially. Mentorship program became the savior for her.

THE BRUCE LEE MANTRA

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

You must have read this famous quote by Bruce Lee. There is a reason why Bruce lee became one of the most renowned martial arts fighter in the world. This quote by him emphasizes the importance of focused practice and a high level of proficiency. 

Just like Bruce Lee, Practice and Proficiency can be ingredients for your success story as well.

NO! WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU TO BECOME SOME WORLD CHAMPION, LET US LEAVE IT FOR ANOTHER DAY. But using the Bruce Lee mantra can help you with your UPSC CSE examination for sure.

Remember PRACTICE doesn’t mean repeating the same mistakes every time but it means ASSESSING your flaws and improving every time!

In our previous blogs, we have talked about Inconsistency and Incomplete syllabus attempts. In this blog, let us tackle the third major problem that students face – LACK OF ASSESSMENT.

Despite finishing the syllabus and revising basic books, many students score average in prelims and mains. So, WHAT IS MISSING HERE? If you are not assessing your performance on a regular basis and practicing in an aimless way then I am sorry to say YOUR CHANCES OF CLEARING THIS PAPER ARE LESS.

In our interaction with 8000+ students, Lack of assessment as an issue that manifests in many ways:

AIMLESS MOCKS: You have heard toppers say that practice as many mocks and write as many papers as possible. But APPLY LOGIC here if you are not analyzing your mistakes and attempting the tests in the same manner then you are just practicing the same mistakes over and over again. You need a mentor not only to push you to practice more but at the same time provide you with the right assessment after each test.

DISCIPLINE: Rome was not built in one day. Similarly, your assessment is not a one-time activity. Aspirants make the mistake of thinking that assessment is limited to getting feedback on your mains copy. Nope! not that simple. Your mentor has to work with you on a regular basis to analyze your performance. This will ensure that if you are getting unproductive, we can bring you back in the right direction as soon as possible.

ACCOUNTABILITY: Self-accountability is necessary for this examination. But if you are also accountable to a mentor then your efficiency levels can improve faster. Don’t believe us, try it yourself.

Already an aspirant is burdened with so much syllabus and mock tests, because of which assessment suffers. Give our Mentorship program a chance. Neutral assessment of your preparation in terms of finishing the syllabus, revision and test results can be a game-changer in your preparation.

Let our mentors focus on your assessment, you just focus on your studies. Fill the SAMANVAYA form given below and we will contact you.

KNOWLEDGE EUPHORIA – ACHIEVE 2X SYLLABUS COMPLETION RATE

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.(Also provided at the bottom of the article)


From Articles of Constitution to National parks

From listing mountain ranges to Mauryan administration

From Artificial intelligence to Repo rate……There is so much variety in UPSC CSE Syllabus.

Learning so many new subjects and new topics, one can feel the influx of knowledge in the preparation mode. This newfound knowledge generates a sense of euphoria in many aspirants. To keep feeding this euphoria, many aspirants make the mistake of reading more and more material, be it the current or static part. Sadly, unchecked knowledge euphoria can hijack your preparation.

IS SYLLABUS COMPLETION A SERIOUS ISSUE YOU ARE FACING IN YOUR PREPARATION? IS IT SO THAT WHILE ATTEMPTING MOCK TESTS, YOU VAGUELY RECALL THE TOPICS? OR LOOKING AT SO MANY BOOKS MAKE YOU LOSE INTEREST IN THE PREPARATION?

If yes, then something has to change in your strategy. In fact, you are not alone facing this challenge. Check out the video given below of our student discussing the same problem and how it affected his performance in the last 5 attempts.

Giving prelims without even completing the whole syllabus once is like killing your own golden duck. In our interaction with our Mentors and their mentees, we identified few common mistakes when it comes to incomplete syllabus attempts:

  • Habit of collecting and reading too many books, Photostatted material and online content
  • Reading every book from cover to cover with giving equal importance to every topic
  • Mismanagement of current affairs and static part

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.(Also provided at the bottom of the article)

Obviously, solutions to these problems differ from student to student. BUT ONE MANTRA THAT ALL OUR MENTORS SWEAR BY IS INSTEAD OF HARD WORK, DO SMART WORK. SO, WHAT DOES SMART WORK MEAN?

WHAT NOT TO READ: Common impression about UPSC CSE preparation is that you have to know everything under the sun. But there is a catch here! Try to learn everything under the sun from a Generalist than a specialist point of view. This can be done if you know “WHAT NOT TO READ?”. Let our mentors look at the material you are reading and chuck out the unnecessary clutter.

MARK BOUNDARIES: This is all about making sure that every subject has 1-2 reference material, which you will focus on. Marking boundaries is also important in the case of current affairs. Usually, students end up using 4-5 hours of their time just for daily current affairs. This for sure is not Smart study!

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.(Also provided at the bottom of the article)

REVISION: Yes! we all know that revision is important. But do you know you have to divide your revision into 3 groups: Short term, medium-term and long-term revision. Revision should not be a bi-annual exercise. Syllabus completion and revision have to be done side by side. So, getting this balance in your preparation is where we as a mentor come in.

COVER TO COVER: Don’t read your books like novels. You have to constantly tell yourself that ‘BE EXAM ORIENTED’. In each subject, you should have a rough idea about ‘UPSC FAVORITES’. Finish them first!

MONITORING: A neutral third-person monitoring can be a great addition to your preparation. Constant check on what you are reading, what good material not to miss, and focusing on high importance areas is the priority in our mentorship program.

Mentorship is subjective but we are trying to add a bit of science to it with years of data collection on performances, feedback and interviews with our students. Fill up the form below and let us know what issue you are facing? Surely we will resolve it together!

ESCAPE THE SNOOZE MODE IN YOUR UPSC-CSE PREPARATION

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.(Also provided at the bottom of the article)

We talked to 8000+ aspirants in the last one year and their answers will surprise you.

Inconsistency in UPSC preparation is like getting up at 5 am. A night before you set up your alarm. The motivation to get up is high at this point. But in the morning, when the alarm rings, we swipe it to the right with a thought “IN 5 MINUTES…FOR SURE!!”. This snooze cycle usually continues for some time till we realize it is 8 am. Already a bad start to the day! To add to it, you will spend the whole day repenting upon not being able to get up early, instead of focusing upon the time we have. The same goes for UPSC preparation. You set your targets but one slight glitch and your whole preparation go off track. Till the time you yourself realize this mismanagement, it is a bit too late. Anxiety builds up, performance levels fall. You are not able to achieve even 10% OF YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL on the D-day.

WE ASKED 8000+ STUDENTS ONE SIMPLE QUESTION –

“WHAT IS THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE THAT YOU ARE FACING IN YOUR UPSC PREPARATION?”

YOU WILL BE ASTOUNDED THAT ONE ANSWER WAS COMMON IN REPLIES – INCONSISTENCY.

They are Consistently Inconsistent. Meaning, they go through these highs and lows in their preparation. They are able to study for days, week but they hit a sudden gap in preparation. Then, they find it very hard to come back. The good news is that we have the solution.

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.

Our philosophy behind MENTORSHIP is to get you out of this Snooze cycle. This ensures that you are the BEST VERSION of yourself in this journey. If you are under the impression that mentorship is weekly calls you attend, then you are mistaken, my friend. Trust us, your mentor will be your ‘FRIEND, PHILOSOPHER AND GUIDE’.

How Mentorship can fight inconsistency in preparation?

TO EACH THEIR OWN – Every aspirant is different. Their strengths and weaknesses are different. Their time availability is also different. Identifying this is important so you don’t end up making unrealistic targets and lose momentum. Your mentor will make sure you start slow but remain consistent to build your confidence. Making your schedule structured based on our experience of working with 2500+ students is our first priority. 

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS – When you see yourself grow, it becomes easier to motivate yourself to push boundaries. Tracking your progress can happen in many ways like mentorship calls or chat sessions or by regular tests. The idea is to ensure that you don’t go off track in your preparation, and even if you do, we have your back.

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.

EVOLUTION – A constant guidance is important to bring consistency to your UPSC preparation. Guidance is not about clearing your doubts or asking you to study when you don’t. It is also about the evolution of your preparation. This is where you and your mentor work as a team. A constant effort to PLAN AND BUILD UP YOUR ABILITY to learn in a faster and more efficient way.

Click here to fill the Samanvaya form for 1-1 mentorship. We will call you within 24 hours.

TALK IT OUT – The biggest hurdle in achieving your highest level of consistency is the emotional part. Every now and then, you. surround yourself with negative thoughts, you feel scared and depressed. Instead of resolving these emotional issues, you avoid them as it seems like a waste of your precious time. You have to understand that ignoring emotional troubles does not solve them. What your doing is building an emotional time bomb that may burst a week before your mains or prelims! This is where your MENTOR AS A FRIEND comes in. All our mentors have been through this journey. We understand your fears and anxieties. So, TALK IT OUT.

Inconsistency in UPSC preparation is like getting up at 5 am. A night before you set up your alarm. The motivation to get up is high at this point. But in the morning, when the alarm rings, we swipe it to the right with a thought “IN 5 MINUTES…FOR SURE!!”. This snooze cycle usually continues for some time till we realize it is 8 am. Already a bad start to the day! To add to it, you will spend the whole day repenting upon not being able to get up early, instead of focusing upon the time we have. The same goes for UPSC preparation. You set your targets but one slight glitch and your whole preparation go off track. Till the time you yourself realize this mismanagement, it is a bit too late. Anxiety builds up, performance levels fall. You are not able to achieve even 10% OF YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL on the D-day.

WE ASKED 8000+ STUDENTS ONE SIMPLE QUESTION –

“WHAT IS THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE THAT YOU ARE FACING IN YOUR UPSC PREPARATION?”

YOU WILL BE ASTOUNDED THAT ONE ANSWER WAS COMMON IN REPLIES – INCONSISTENCY.

They are Consistently Inconsistent. Meaning, they go through these highs and lows in their preparation. They are able to study for days, week but they hit a sudden gap in preparation. Then, they find it very hard to come back. The good news is that we have the solution.

Our philosophy behind MENTORSHIP is to get you out of this Snooze cycle. This ensures that you are the BEST VERSION of yourself in this journey. If you are under the impression that mentorship is weekly calls you attend, then you are mistaken, my friend. Trust us, your mentor will be your ‘FRIEND, PHILOSOPHER AND GUIDE’.

How Mentorship can fight inconsistency in preparation?

TO EACH THEIR OWN – Every aspirant is different. Their strengths and weaknesses are different. Their time availability is also different. Identifying this is important so you don’t end up making unrealistic targets and lose momentum. Your mentor will make sure you start slow but remain consistent to build your confidence. Making your schedule structured based on our experience of working with 2500+ students is our first priority. 

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS – When you see yourself grow, it becomes easier to motivate yourself to push boundaries. Tracking your progress can happen in many ways like mentorship calls or chat sessions or by regular tests. The idea is to ensure that you don’t go off track in your preparation, and even if you do, we have your back.

EVOLUTION – A constant guidance is important to bring consistency to your UPSC preparation. Guidance is not about clearing your doubts or asking you to study when you don’t. It is also about the evolution of your preparation. This is where you and your mentor work as a team. A constant effort to PLAN AND BUILD UP YOUR ABILITY to learn in a faster and more efficient way.

TALK IT OUT – The biggest hurdle in achieving your highest level of consistency is the emotional part. Every now and then, you. surround yourself with negative thoughts, you feel scared and depressed. Instead of resolving these emotional issues, you avoid them as it seems like a waste of your precious time. You have to understand that ignoring emotional troubles does not solve them. What your doing is building an emotional time bomb that may burst a week before your mains or prelims! This is where your MENTOR AS A FRIEND comes in. All our mentors have been through this journey. We understand your fears and anxieties. So, TALK IT OUT.
