“Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle.” - Benjamin Franklin
Aspirants must learn to use the available resources in an optimum manner. Focus on things that are in your hands and ignore what you can’t change. If your surrounding environment is not in your favour, don’t curse it; instead, develop a positive attitude and be a guiding light to others.
You too can prepare for the exam diligently without sidelining your work. If you are considering the fact that students who take coaching and study regularly are more prone to qualify and you have comparatively less knowledge, then , don't worry because UPSC now a days have changed their whole examination pattern with more focus being given to dynamic topics and current affairs. Thus, mugging up of facts and data is no more relevant to the UPSC examination.
The fact is that every year a sizeable number of people, if not all who qualify for the civil services examination are working professionals. There are many advantages for being a working professional vis a vis those students who prepare for the exam 24×7. Being a working professional sometimes give you an extra edge over those non working civil aspirants .
“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.” – Tagore
This famous quote is from Rabindranath Tagore’s drama ‘The King of Dark Chamber’. One can’t cross a river by merely standing and staring. Similarly, one can’t clear the CSE, by dreaming and reading success stories. One has to take a step and leap forward. One has to overcome the procrastination and should start reading the necessary material and practice mock papers to succeed in the exam.
Thus, it is the time when you can prepare your preparation for this prestigious examination. Go for a smart and intelligent study following a proper time table. It's been witnessed that UPSC has changed the whole narrative of CSE with more impetus being given upon current affairs . This makes CSE an all subject field and everyone has the same probability of qualifying it, contrary to earlier years where humanities students used to score an edge.
Under proper guidance and mentorship you can consume your free time judiciously, RAM IAS COACHING is a place where you can
keep a watch on current affairs and regular testing programmes can further abet that. And remember -
QUANTITY DOESN'T MATTERS, WHAT MATTERS IS QUALITY.
You need to be honest and diligent towards your preparation underpinned by Hard work. Along with that, a optimistic attitude and confidence will prove essential key to your qualifying this examination.
“The hardest thing in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn.” - Bertrand Russell
Knowledge and hard work are not sufficient to clear the CSE. To succeed, one has to do smart work. One should know, what are the most scoring areas in the preliminary and the main examination? One should know, which books have to be read and which books have to be avoided? To become an IAS officer with minimum efforts, aspirants have to be tactful.
