Is one year preparation enough to crack UPSC?

'Yes'. One year preparation is enough but in that one year give your best. This exam need a positive mindset and dedication. During that one year you would have to cover

1. Last two years Current Affairs (You can refer online sites such as UPSC Panda, Clearias etc.)

2. All NCERTs and Standard Books (Keeping syllabus in mind)

3. Improve writing skills (Write at least 2-3 answers daily)

4. Previous Year Papers ( Find out the important topics)

5. Economic Survey, Budget and India Year Book, one year Yojana Magazine.

All the best!
