Need Some Guidance & Motivation........Plzzzzz Help

Hello guys..........I m IFoS Aspirant. but I have not cleared a single prelims for IFoS (2014,2015 & 2016).........But I have cleared CSE prelims this time, but i m not prepared for mains.......Only 75 days remaining for mains.......Can I prepared for CSE Mains 2016 or prepared for IFoS prelims 2017.......Please guide me....

BC UPSC valo ne IFoS serious candidates ki watt laga di h.....


  • now prepare solely for mains.writing mains is golden oppurtunity which only 3 % people get.after 10 of dec start preparing for ifos 17 with full might
  • Brother, CSE is one of the most probabilistic exams in universe. It has a very high amount of randomness.

    Don't believe me. Google 'Baranwal Varunkumar' and read his story. He was Rank-32 in CSE-2013 which was his 1st attempt. (which was also my first attempt).

    In an interaction in Pune, he confessed that he actually decided his optional while filling DAF!! Back then optional was filled in mains DAF, not before prelims. Watch his video on Youtube, you'll get instant motivation...
    He only prepared for CSE mains for 2 months. You already have more than that...

    Brother, CSE becomes 70-80% luck based... sometimes...

    Life is a box of chocolates Forrest, you never know what you are gonna get. So, run Forrest..... Run....
