For those who have passed the Prelims before, what's one thing you want to advice those who haven't?

I gave my first attempt this year and I wanted it to be my first and last attempt but unfortunately, didn't get through. It was earth shattering. It seems to me Prelims is no ball game. I want surety of getting through the Prelims in 2018.

What are some things that are important in order to get through Prelims easily with 130+ marks(in GS)?

    Bhai decide kar lo aap ki kya chahiye.
    Detail mein responses chahiye ya hurried ones like "Read newspaper, follow insights test series, read forum editorials, do Vision magazine."
    Kyonki 5-10 minute mein toh bas itna hi likh sakte hain.
    Aur rahi social service ki baat, toh wo hum manage kar lenge, aap tension na lein.

  • Padhai main aise doob jaao...jaise dilrooba k pyar main doobte ho......pre nikalne ka yahi strategy hai. Baaki sab mithya aur maaya hai.Vision aur insight k test.....lagane wale bhi latak jaate hain..... Love the process of becoming knowledgeable which is judged by how much clear understanding you have of the world you live in. ;)

  • One thing for sure is that if you have not cleared prelims before, start by December latest .. and revise everything you read at least 5-8 times.

    Will write in detail later as this time I prepared for prelims only in about 25 days given my debacle in interview .

    Also solve at least two test papers. One paid one non paid so that you know your rank.

    Try to have small group for comparison among yourselves . Make sure the group is good.

    Have an open cool mind.dont think that you will find answers only from what you read for the exam.many a times answers can be found from our daily experiences and knowledge gained before start of civils prep.so on exam day,don't restrict your mind to coaching notes ,text books you have read .
