Hi everyone,

Minimum Targets for 17-06-2022

  • Bipin Chandra Modern India (Chapter 13 and 14)
  • Economics Revision Chapter -3,4,5,6 and 8
  • PSIR 2 hour Plato Revision + write 2 PYQ on plato
  • GS Answer Writing Lecture 3 hours  @ youtube
  • Indian Express (selective parts from the hindu, if time is left)

 Have a great day everyone !!

 

P.S. if there is any YPT group for 2023 aspirants or you would like to form one, or if someone wants to collaborate for gs answer writing or optional, feel free to DM me. My long term plan is to be mains ready atleast by December 2022, so that we can give atleast 4-5 months for prelims specifically.

Done with bipin chandra, Plato, Answer writing lecture, and indian express. Economy still left. Will try to finish before sleep.

In the month of April, everything was going pretty okay. I never thought I'd post on forum or any other platform for that matter, but here comes the problem: things never go the way I wish.
Now I haven't touched my books for nearly a month. So, here I'm, hoping that posting my targets here would at least help me get a few things done, however dismal maybe the growth it'll sure be an improvement.

Targets for 19 June- 
1. GS-3 3-4 hours.
2. Newspaper.

That's it.

I hope people who want to join this thread, join it without thinking too much, and the people who just want to observe have fun doing that.

Miserably failed at achieving the targets, did just newspaper. Turns out that posting targets on a social media platform doesn't help us eliminate the bad habits accumulated over the years.


Targets for  20 June:

1. Gs-3 4 hours.

2. Newspaper.

Was in a rut for about 10 days. Planning to get back on track today. Newspaper done. Making a plan for the next 9-10 months, hoping to be mains ready by Nov-Dec. One dilemma that I've found myself in since many days now is this - To prepare according to MGP 2023, i.e few topics every week and then a test on Sunday OR to prepare the subject/subjects first (notes included) and then appear for the tests. Suggestions are welcome !

I think it's better to give tests each week, whenever  possible because it helps you keep you on your toes(helpful especially when if you struggle with consistency/self-discipline). However, you can sometimes club 2 Half length tests together if the boundary between the syllabus of 2 tests isn't that rigid. For example - starting 2-3 tests of GS-2 and GS3 can be merged together as they are of polity/eco so it's better to cover all the topics then give test. on the other hand HLTs of International relation, SnT, internal security etc should be done without wasting any time. 

We can anyway improvise our notes during the 14day break we get before FLT of each GS paper. 

These are just my suggestions, and *spoiler alert* Idk anything, I'm just learning and I guess that the case with most of us. So, it's better you should try and experiment as see what works for you. All the best

Thinking of posting my targets here. Have been a silent member for a very long time. Hope it helps. The days have been just flowing by post prelims and I need to start getting back on track again. I can feel myself slowly losing all the consistency and discipline I had worked so hard to maintain. Hope this helps, thinking of this as my digital diary. Fingers crossed!

Consecutive 4th prelims faliure. Worst feeling. Depressed. How you guys are coping with it? And, if anyone of you is preparing from home, how do you maintain consistency and discipline?

2 and 3 - done but those are just minor things. Need to come out of the vicious cycle of procrastination and instant gratification.
