Newbie confession

Hii guys hope your preparation is going well , for newbies like me( wrt UPSC ) it is adventorous and also sense of insecurity when i see people talking about " UPSC clear karne ke liye 2-3 saal lag jayenge " i started preparing for the IES from 2016 exam BUT didnt cleared prelims 2017 now im focusing on following exams
EXAMS : CAPF , CSE PRELIMS
SSC CGL
BANK EXAMS : SBI PO , NICL etC
Having sources : GS 1) Eco n Enc - insights prelims revision module ( june to march )

  • no you cannot change optional after clearing prelims. for the other points, relevant people may inform you.
    Barbad forumistaan karne ko to ek hi ullu kaafi tha
    Yahan..har post pe ullu baitha hai anjam-e-forumistan kya hoga
  • If i had prepared for ies then u should sit for ifos exam...
  • i had electrical stream
    what was urs ? prelims cut off is bit higher
  • You are riding too many horses. SSC/BANKPO/NICL/CAPF/UPSC etc. It definitely would result in a tragedy unless you are those countable uber brilliant kids who top exams just by reading nothing. :-o Compartmentalize your above listed exams. Get CAPF and UPSC on one side and rest on other sides. CAPF and UPSC basically have the same template. Prepare for these two exams. Or, if you have thought otherwise then go for SSC/IBPS. But, dont mix up all the exams. Choose wisely and responsibly. Atb :-)
  • Thanks Bro
