How should a fresh candidate approach the exam?



A new aspirant should keep in mind the following points:

• First try to understand the exam. Gather information from various sources, analyse the previous years’ papers, meet seniors and teachers, and think deeply about the exam and the way you should prepare.

• Choose the optionals very carefully.

• Settle down in some place where you can study without disturbances, it is better to be isolated for a year during the preparation.

Select the coaching centers carefully after enquiring from various sources. Do not merely go by the advertisements.

• Do not be in a hurry to buy all the material available in the market. Be selective and chose only the best, based on advise of right seniors.

• Establish good relation with the teachers and take complete advantage of their experience.

• Remember always that you are going to have a tough period for next two years. So be well prepared for all situations. Keep working hard right from the beginning without any distractions.

• Believe strongly that you will clear the exam in the first attempt itself and do not compromise at any stage. If required work harder than ever before.

• Take care of your health aspects.

• Do not be in a hurry to complete the syllabus. Go slow when you read new concepts. Do regular revisions.

• Make writing practice a part of your daily routine.

• The current affairs notes should be prepared every day.

• The preparation should be started at least a year ahead of the exam.

• Do not give the attempt unless you are confident of qualifying for the interview.

The first attempt should be the best one, so work hard with determination.

General Suggestions :

Long hours of study and lot of other sacrifices are needed. You should have a very determined mental make up and a never-say-die kind of spirit.

• The fortune favours the brave. So work hard with courage in spite of the failures. The final reward is bound to come. The luck factor does not help if you don’t work hard to your full capacity.

• To err is human, but the one who rectifies is a champion. So, do a lot of introspection as you progress in the preparation. This will help you in identifying the mistakes and rectifying them at the right time.

Devotion and Determination are the keys to the success. Be ready to work hard. But at the same time, ensure that your efforts are channelised in the right direction.

• Plan your study and try to work it out within schedule. Set weekly targets and at the end of the week, do a self-appraisal.

• There will be lots of temptation to give up the attempt, as you progress in the preparation. This is mainly due to the huge syllabus and the accumulating pressure. But be aware that these are the critical moments. You should face all these pressures with courage. Be determined to clear the exam in the first attempt.
