Slept at 3am yesterday, doing nothing but listening to my brother’s conversations and singing along to Golmaal 1 songs. Feeling the effects today. But we shall strive through for there are many who survive on 5 hour sleep and do wonders.

Things didn't go as planned. Completed Polity, Social Issues PT, Culture PT. Post that did not start further rather went to see the Schemes Compilation that was still remaining . Felt anxious regarding it as I was earlier planning to do just schemes that appear in tests and that were part of Vision monthly. But anxiety does change things and sometimes make us work. Rather than proceeding with the targets, Sat for 3 hours to go through the scheme compilation. Highlighted schemes that seemed important to me. Still not done, but exhausted right now. So I end my day with it. would give it some half an hour after waking up and also from tomorrow will flip my sleep cycle to adjust to exam timings.

Anyone doing mrunal economy ? if yes please guide weather we have to do schemes separately or mrunal material will suffice?
Ekaki pothik,
@Huntington bhai wish I knew the meaning of your ID then I would have got an answer right!! Haha😂


This week terribly wasted. Full week. Still few questions left in abhyas 2 solution. Getting guilty subconsciously for not studying, and drifting into other thoughts while trying to studying. Eating non stop coz of this anxiousness. Pura pura din beet ja rha h and I have no idea what did I do all day. As exams approach, I lose the momentum and dedication. Ye character flaw hataya bina cse is not possible. Have to take charge of the situation now.

hey guys, Some wise words plzzzz

I have completely relied on the SFG tests(full) + Simulator(1-8) + Vajiram FLT (As much as I can do) + Some tests of IASBABA 

Completely ignored:- VISION mocks/abhyas/any other.

What say? ok!

Bhai dont know why I hate vision mocks..... and find VAJIRAM best much better than simulators as well. Simulator i am doing for coverage and has some affinity to forumias. :)

Hi. So SFG ended on 11th. On a lot of days I wasted time during the day and completed the syllabus during night -> nightowl routine. In sept they had a break for every test which I mostly wasted. 12th was a complete wash out. I don't know what is happening. For most people the productivity is doubling and here I am. I know if I don't work now, I'd surely flunk prelims because of all the negativity itself.

13th: solved last week's Abhyaas & some PYQ of Geography.


sleep: 2:00- 6:15 am (shifting to morning routine)

Saw the rising sun. Gave me hope. But this transient inspiration isn't enough. From here until 4th, I must sustain this.


1. Revise Geo Phy: XI + PYQ + SFG 

2. CA class

3. Analyse abhyaas

3. some CSAT practice

Mother trying to get my sleep schedule right for the exam. Meanwhile, the body’s going through a phase of rebellion and not falling asleep at all.
