  • If you are preparing for 2019, dont go for current affairs. Rather finish ncerts and standard books in 2018. Then read current affairs

    So I should read them next year? But I thought one should prepare for it whole year as questions are being asked in mains ?? No??
  • You are employed already @pakodaWala . Leave UPSC for us unemployed folks.

    Step 1 >> by heart UPSC syllabus, both pre and mains.

    Step 2 >> go through previous 10 years question papers, both prelims and mains, read them twice. after that definitely you will get some idea as to which topics are important, what types of stats are important, what upsc likes to ask etc

    step 3 >> Start making notes from conventional sources, Hindu Laxmikanth etc keeping in mind what UPSC demands generally. sometimes no one can predict what type of questions will be asked but to some extent it helps to understand the nature of exam.
