Out of lakhs of candidates, only 10K make it. Why do some people clear prelims with ease year after year and others fail to do so? Read on
Our analysis shows that candidates who study S.M.A.R.T. clear prelims easily while people who slog too hard sometimes miss out. What do we mean by S.M.A.R.T. Study?
S.M.A.R.T. Study means being your best on the day of the Prelims, not before that, not after. But on the D Day. How to do this? Follow this mantra –
S – Syllabus completion. No excuses for leaving out Enviro or Art and Culture. Pick one source for each part and revise it again and again.
M – Manage your time. Do not start preparation of Prelims in full flow in December or January. Study 2 hours in these months and devote rest of the time to Mains prep. You should focus fully on prelims from March onwards.
A – Analyse. If you are first timer, analyse your test series to see where you make mistakes. If you are an experienced candidate, analyse your tests as well as previous attempts. Focus on weak areas that are remedied easily. Use TIKDAMS to solve seemingly tricky questions.
R – Revise. Remember what Bruce Lee said – I am not afraid of the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks but I am afraid of a man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times. Keep revising your chosen sources.
T – Test Series. Are you giving a test series that covers the whole syllabus, that gives you practice at different levels of preparation – basic and advanced.
Are you solving a test series that provided detailed explanations and essentially serves as notes for your preparation. If NOT, now is a good time to look at CD’s Prime and Advanced Test Series.
