  • Shift your focus to ssc cgl 2015 and prepare for cse 2016..not meant to demoralise you..your pros are cons in disguise..ATB
    Limited period offer-U can laugh at me till the 1st half of 2018

    Absolutely desirable.
    You would be feeling absolutely fantastic at the end of yr if u hv a job at ur hnd . Dnt go by emotions if u dnt want to regret later, rest is ur choice
    Upsc upsc upsc upsc .!! Aur upsc !!
  • You have 6 attempts man. What's the harm in using one of them? But don't just rely on cse, give other exams too.

    I would like to propose a strategy:
    Basis:
    Studying everyday: 10 hrs
    Reading speed: 10 pgs per hour

    cover shankar ias/p d sharma : about 5 days
    Cover laxmikanth: 7 days
    Spectrum Inm: 5 days
    Eco from sriram/pd: 4 days
    Assuming you have covered geo from ncert

    So by the end of this month you will covered basic pillars for pre. At that point of time give any full course test that you can find, if you score anything around 75-80. You can think of giving it this year.

    Moving forward in july/aug
    Buy vision current affairs booklet from dec/jan onwards (will take about 8-9 days)
    Then download rao ias gist for iyb (220 pgs: will take around 4-5 days)
    Then from july mid onwards go for another revision.

    Keep giving test once/twice a week to check your prep level. If you find you progression curve going down or you feel you won't be able to manage then you may not give this year but at least you would go down fighting

    Last thing, always remember you are your best judge (zyada funda ho gya :P )
    Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.
  • Bro 2016 attempt par focus karo.
    Two situations:
    1) 2015 pre clear somehow with unscientific and haphazard prep- sure shot flunk in mains - time wasted till dec in haphazard prep. Time wasted till April 2016 waiting for mains result. Result.-,again short time left for pre 2016. Cycle will keep on repeating.
    Also over confidence that u can clear pre with little prep..suicidal attitude for next prelims.
    2) 2015 pre fail- tension demoralising. Spoiled health due to constant pressure. Chances of getting frustrated too.

    Target 2016.

    thatsy i m seeking any plan from you all

  • @Mandark
    Thanks bhai thnks alot
    @sankalp_sharma15 - I do not prefer recommending "plans" to anyone. It is something that everyone should have their own. As Vibin said, give priority to SSC, PO and state exams. So in 9hrs, study 6hrs for others and 3hrs for UPSC.
    If you are able to complete NCERT books + one basic for some topics then you'll be able to answer quite a lot of questions in prelims. In recent years, I'm seeing a pattern that UPSC is focusing on basics plus some factual questions (these factual questions are totally luck- If you know it, you get marks else there's no way to deduce the answer).
    In my first attempt I didn't even read the NCERTs completely. Just did TMH GS books plus a few basic books and I was able to get 83 marks. Your preparation is much better than what mine was at that stage. No matter what people here say, don't lose hope.

  • 75 din hai @sankalp_sharma15 padh lo aur nikal lo..2016 boht door hai..prelims ho sakta hai 75 din me..ye "senior citizen" aspirant boht darate hai..mehnat karo.. ho jaayega..
    One of the greatest mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results

    one more suggestion..stay away from forumias..yahan log esoteric question pooch kar aur depress karte hai..and dont join too many test series..stick to basic aur confidence high rakho

  • @sankalp_sharma15 Try to know what cse demands..every thing will be crystal clear..you know why i have said this
    pre - 2, mains - 1*
  • Yes understanding little bit
    @Chomuphilosopher
  • @sankalp_sharma15 you should go for 2015, enough time is dere. If you cnt make it in these 75 days then do introspection. You spend more time on forumias aur jitna bhi time forum pe rhte ho, you only do senseless things. Haven't seen you in any fruitful discussion or marks sharing thread. Try to do 2, 3 mocks, analyze yourself and work hard on weak areas instead wasting time.
