Hardwork tips

Friends, though I am good at brain( high IQ) , from good academic background, 300 aprx scorer in prelims, but when it comes to mains , I just surrender ( low EQ) cz I have never studied for more than avg of 3-4 hrs in my life hitherto.

Mains requires continuous hardwork for several months.So I want to ask those hardworkers that how do u do it? Are u habitual to it? Or do u enjoy it? Or u just do it anyhow keeping ur senses under control?

Moreover , given the huge syllabus, a variety of sources to go through , I get overwhelmed and gradually depressed as to how to cover this mammoth syllabus . I experience a strange dilemma. The dilemma is that if I start with one subject , I lag behind in others, ultimately leading to helplessness, anxiety , depression which do not let me study at all.


  • Suggestion from my side join a test series and study accordingly. 3-4 hours of focused study can also bear fruit. Gradually you will increase it. No point fretting over these issues. Ek side se syllabus khatam karte jao. atb.
    circumstances make men just as much as men make circumstances.
