Some toppers claim studying 12-15 hours a day normally (not before exam days) others swear by not studying more than 6-8 hours.
We see so many students in libraries on their desk from 8 in morning till 10/11 PM. Day in and day out. For weeks and months at stretch. Many of them "seem" really serious.
My query is how is it humanly possible to do so without burn-outs? Or is it a skill mandatory to clear CSE? How it can be done? Or is it a flawed strategy to begin with? (Cuz few of these library goers, I know have been following this routine for last 2-3 years- without even clearing Prelims once).
Or am I missing some secret truth?
All the rankholders/ UPSC interviewees, pls chip in with your study habit/period experience. @DrKingSchultz @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh @Neyawn @crazyphoton @RomanSaini @mango_dolly @IWRA @woman @Etat @Sathish @Mitochondria @IceMan
Thanks in advance.
Why this post: Have written Mains this time, without much hope (Screwed up my Optional & GS1 paper). With my modest studying habit (6-7 hrs), I now sense, I don't stand a chance aganist these 12-15 hours putting people... As I am inherently disadvantaged in terms of time I can devote, even if I try my level best...
