Hey everyone,,this thread is being created by me as an initiative for 2017.
I know, many are still baffled by 2016 result (including me), and its okay to be sad, but maturity is when we can stand back immediately after we fail.
Given the time constraints, its better we move on and start working for the next term.
Before this prelims, I was part of the prelims question bank thread which turned out to be one of most useful thread in my preparation. I was unfortunate to join forum late enough but it still helped me faced many questions directly or indirectly in the exam. People there were awesome and I had best time with them. Fortunately, most of them have cleared prelims and I am happy for them because they deserved it.
As the quote in above picture shows the value of a drop in making an ocean. Similarly, given that just 8 months are remaining, we'll prepare for mains along with pre from tomorrow.
We read current affairs, but we couldn't remember some of them in the exam or sometime don't delve into concept associated with them. So, from tomorrow, I'll be posting question which will be totally focussed from upsc point of view from my perception every night. Like if cauvery river dispute is in issue currently, I'll put question from stanley/mettur dam to Central water commission to anything related to it which could be asked possibly in prelims. Thiis way, by june, you'll definitely be able to recall and attempt some questions directly or indirectly especially if you just revise current affairs 15 days before exam.
I will put up some questions, someone else will put up and in this way, in just half an hour a day, you'll be able to cover concepts, current affairs and relevant portion of IYB at same time.
Attempting questions is the best way to retain more and more things in exam and in this way, we can cover most things upsc may ask. Trust me, if we do this regularly, you'll not even need any expensive test series if you don't wish to join.
This year upsc paper also made sure that they covered 1-2 questions from relevant issues from each month from september to august.
So, read newspaper everyday, mark 4-5 things in paper which you felt important from exam perspective and just put up-3-4 questions and solve questions put up by everyone. It will take care of your exam automatically. This will also help you in mains or cover something of the day if you couldn't read newspaper.
So, sayonara for today and will meet you from tomorrow 10 pm. Willing people can start contributing from tomorrow and It will become a group in itself soon once habits gets developed. I'll contribute irrespective of anyone want to participate or not.
