CSE 2018 as Last Attempt. Guys gather here and let's discuss our PROBLEMS and OPPORTUNITIES.

CSE 2018 would be my last attempt, 5th mains failure , consecutively. I have many questions and I believe many others might have too. So let's gather here and discuss our problems and help each other out . I will list out some questions that might ocCur to those with their last attempt left. Others can add questions and answer others if possible. Also remember ShariNg is caring so I ask those that have exhausted their attempts to please help me and others with their experiences. I have some questions.
1. Should I take a gap? This way I will focus on other exams like state PCs , banking , ssc , get a job and then will become stable and give my last attempt.as being IAS is our DREAM
2. Should I change optional? For me I am in with history ans couldn't score more than 200 . So want to change to other possibly Maths. This will help in focussing on IFOS too. Taking a gap in between might help too as I will be left with one whole year to study Maths
3. Leave UPSC and focus on alternative careers as mentioned above
4. Give 6th attempt consecutively as I am in flow of study , but will study harder and practice more. But need to study from past mistakes.
5. Any other questions as one might feel

PS. I have been unemployed for all these years . I think I should have thought of alternative careers 2- 3 years ago . But it's too late to think of that now . I would thank anyone giving me a good perspective on this , that I don't feel guilty of my past decisions as it is of no use, but just focus on present and future now . I would like all to bare it all here and help each other as much as possible . Thank you .

    1st option is most practical at this point of time. First secure some stable job and then prepare for UPSC after that, so that you would have peace of mind while preparing. But remember that don't choose the job which is 'suitable' for you to prepare for UPSC because god forbid if you fail in your next attempt you will be stuck with that job for your whole life.

    Why not? Is your optional maths? If yes, please direct me so. Also If not maths, then which one? Maths would have been helpful in IFOS prep too, as an optional,which I was planning this year instead of Civils

    Yes dude. My alternative career will be the one I will be interested in.
  • I have given mains once in my 2 attempts. I am willing to earn some bucks and engage myself in content developing or copy evaluation in coaching institutes. Anyone having idea about pay, duration of work and how to apply?
