Is it a good idea to appear for SSC, Banking, CAPF and State PCS etc. while preparing for UPSC?

I am preparing for UPSC. I was thinking of writing other govt competitive exams like IBPS, SSC and CAPF while preparing. Is it a good idea to prepare for these exams?

Or will it be a distraction?

I am not looking for a career backup option as of now, and I dont want to go for backup jobs either. Perspective of @Jon_Snow and @VIP @Nocturnal90 and others will be very useful.

Thanks

  • If it doesn't become over load for you then do give a shot.
    Being engineer you don't need to work any thing extra for maths except bit practice,and these exam might help improve your english ability (as learning has no limits),and english being asked in SSC is of good level.So, in short give them a try but ensure that ur UPSC prepration is not hampered as daily competition is increasing astronomically. :)

    Sir, that has been my biggest concern.

    I have no knowledge of these exams, but one think I know after solving the papers is that SSC and all can be easily cracked with some practise and giving 5-10 days for GK . I was seeing UPPCS Tests papers and found that 5-10 days of dedicated studies is enough for it.

    The distraction is definitely a possibility, but what is also there that writing exams keeps one in flow and if you write a couple of exams, by UPSC mains, you are well acquainted with the competition.

    I think this flow will help in the exam, but I did want to have some deliberation on the forum for the same.

    Thank you so much for your reply sir.

    @neyawn @Jon_Snow sir, any views on this?

  • @VivekJ2 bhai sahab don't take SSC CGL , RBI grade B so lightly..they select best out of the best. For thousands of post more than millions apply and 80-90% are serious candidates unlike in UPSC where % of serious candidates is low.
    You are gonna need immense practice for these two exams

    I never appeared for the exams you mentioned but there is no doubt on @Captain_Peroxide 's wisdom that giving exams keeps our momentum alive otherwise usually we don't study if we don't have exams overhead (atleast I don't) however with no csat these exams are not going to help much. There is nothing wrong in filling up the application forms, and any success whether you aim for it or not will boost your confidence. I had appeared for mppsc prelims but then didn't appear for its mains because the dates were too close to ifs mains exam. My suggestion would be fill up the forms it is always your choice at the end of the day.

  • Capf - yes. Because no need of extra prep. Ssc- yes because you are an engineer. Ibps - beware. They ask crap in the name of general awareness.
    pre - 2, mains - 1*

  • SSC mein bhi todu competition hai bhai.

  • If you dont need a backup then you should not give any exam having syllabus different from civils. Directly/indirectly they will only distract and in case you appear without preparation then may demotivate you.

    kisne kaha h bhai 80-90% serious students hote h ......it is the level of exam jo competition high kr deta h. Jitna easy utna competition.... seriousness is not the necessary and sufficient condition for determining the competition level in any exam. Agar 80-90% serious log ho gye na to India top pe pahuch jayega.

    agreed man, but backup is necessary for the people who are not from the prestigious colleges.

    You are right about a backup as i am myself in the desperate need of a backup. (Logon ne naak me damm kar rakha h :s )

  • What i think is,

    If you have completed the syllabus once whole heartedly, then you should definitely prepare for and take other examinations.

    If not, then just focus on either UPSC alone or first clear some other exam by focusing on it, as there syllabus and pattern is quite different.

    Otherwise you will be doing a different preparation every month which will give you good results in all but not enough to qualify all stages and you will be keep doing that.
