Is it advisable to prepare for it during upsc prep

Hi, after roaming around on forum for few days I saw most people suggested a 'backup'. So it it feasible and advisable to do so? I'm no brilliant preparing for CSE on my own for now. If someone's practicing such daring act please shed some light.
P.S.- I'm preparing for '19 CSE

  • depend on your age... if u are 23.... devote 2 3 years for upsc prep and after 26 switch to PO SSC exams provided u are alloting 5 hours for upsc revision and 4 hours for po and ssc exam later...

    if u want to start UPSC and Po SSc as back up simultanuously from scratch.. u will reach no where

    Habi bhai has said it all. For 2-3 years forget everything. After that move towards other avenues. if youl embrace backup first even after getting in job you will not be able to settle.
