@TabsAndChords good one bro. i pray you get well from fever like real quick. my best wishes.

On 5th june my plan was to cover for 1000 marks of mains before 4 oct. GS3, essay and optional! but now that i have taken luxury for over a month, that seems difficult. Although i still hold the idea of doing optional and gs3 before prelims. Half of august and sept is for prelims specific.

Also there are 2 videos of neyawn on YouTube around this time (10apr) common mistakes in prelims and how to get better scores. They are pure work of genius.

Does it happen with anyone that when first half goes well , second half is ruined and when second half goes well next day first half is ruined . By ruined in mean lack of concentration or energy . How to balance both

haha. for me there is consistency in wasting first half and then having a moment of OMG in evening, an then somehow pulling off just 5 6 hrs.
One good advice on this i got from neyawn that don't ever waste golden hour i.e. within 30 mins of waking up you must sit on table, and then have discipline of having a shift of 2+ hrs. and "to do list" that we create here is old good practice.

Guys can you suggest me some good youtube channels like rstv , orf , etc which have debates or analysis of issues relevant for upsc ! (Not coaching waalas like byju)
Even the channels of individual intellectuals will work like that of faizan mustafa.


i used to follow faizan sir channel, but he take political cases that are in limelight. mostly controversial so little chance of comming in exam.

mere lie toh hindu and IE gets so heavy that i'm not watching any of the above.
however if some judgment comes and it looks interesting, i follow the blog of gautam bhatia. I dont have law optional so i just skim through his points

One last question to both of you. Is this the right time to change given closeness of exam, or this experiment is meant for peace time. I'm asking this because I have heard for first 2 3 weeks or longer mind's rebound is quite strong and since you are spending so much will power in disciplining yourself, you're left little for your main activity I.e. study for exam. In psychology there is term for it "ego depletion"

First 45 days are quite difficult to resist urges . But after that it is smooth af. And yes, it takes lot of will power in starting . So for now its better not to go cold turkey . I would start again after prelims. For now i am just controlling it. 

Hmm. Control uday control approach till prelims for me as well.

Thanks for replying bro. 👍👍

58 days to Oct 4th. All previous attempts I gave myself 75 days minimum for prelims. Situations beyond my control made it 58 days for 2020 pre. I will work with what I have, the real battle is between now and Oct 3rd, not on 4th

Modern India - Unit I to Unit IV

Vision CA - Sept 19. 

Target 6 hours of satisfactory study time

Did 20% of what I aimed. Don't know if it's post corona fatigue or me simply being out of touch. Just couldn't sit for long without feeling tired/sleepy. 


Will give another push today. 6 good hours is all I target. Study well, good day :)

Hey people, I am a newbie here giving attempt in 2021. Couldn't clear prelims in 2018, had 4 months of preparation. 2021 is my second attempt. 

I can't decide Whether to go for PT mock tests and it's analysis every Sunday or should I only pick all the PT mocks like 2-3 months prior to Pre2021 only as most toppers say. 

I am a part of dipin sir's CA classes as well so it is becoming a little overwhelming for me to complete my targets on weekends. 


Any suggestion, learnings from your past attempts would be helpful here. 

Anyone please feel free to reply to this. 

Seeing your daily schedules here gives me a fillip to put in extra efforts daily and be more committed. All the best you all for pre 2020


you can also take a middle path. start solving mocks from December or January. Till then develop confidence in prelims syllabus and optional.  Most well meaning test series starts then only, In normal years marker of it is vision open test 1 which normally takes place in December. (personal view)

"Ek raah tu pakad chala chal....pa jayega madhushala"

I was also facing such dilemmas, and I think everyone who starts the preparation goes through the same.

What I did was, initially I completed NCERTs and mock tests based on them. Plus some MGP sectional Tests of GS 1 & 3.

Then from around November till February, focus shifted towards my Optional (test series).

Started Prelims exclusive preparation from March onwards (Should have started earlier). Attempted mock Tests subject wise. E.g, When I completed Modern History, attempted its tests from Forum and Vision.

Lockdown ke baad kya kya hua, even I don't remember. Gave some sfg Tests (community intiative). It proved most beneficial for me, because I was lost by then. 

Now I've decided to do reverse engineering. First I'll attempt test, then will fill my knowledge gap.

Only Final results will tell, if it worked for me or not. 

One more thing you can do is to inculcate the habit of reading books and writing journals daily. These help in many ways like fast reading, flow in thoughts or ideas, learn new ideas daily etc.

How I used to write my journal. (Although could not continue. But I'm thinking of counting again) 


All the best.

P.S- I suppose this is not the same Gunther. If it is, then I've to say something- "Don't go after Rachel. Bhaav nahi deti tumhe 😛"

18/08/2020:

Read only Ancient history today. Going to bed early because of headache.

I'm facing this dilemma that I've read Ancient from many sources viz RS Sharma and TN books, Plus class notes, Vajiram yellow Book and my self made notes. And I feel that something is missing in every source.

I remember, prior to starting the UPSC journey, I had read RS Sharma for 2.5 months (along with note making). This was because of my friend, who was preparing for UPSC and I had asked for guidance. He had recommended this book to me (later I realised that he had not read the book, and he just wanted me to make the notes... Har ek friend kamina hota hai. But notes were of no use for him, as he had not read the book. He was also the same person who made me leave my job).

But I was so involved that I had completed the book before formally coming into the preparation journey. I had also read World history book (one that was recommended by Anudeep on his blog) for 2 months. Bipin Chandra (moti wali) for another 2 months.

In this way, I had allocated disproportionate time on history in my first attempt. But this ghost is after me till now. I always think, and kinda afraid, what if I commit a mistake in these papers. 

But the decision has to be made. RS Sharma + New NCERT is final for ancient this time. And I'll also spread the revision of history and Art & Culture in more number of days. Revising everything at once isn't working for me. Parallelly revision of other subjects, CA and tests. Full syllabus Test in September.

P.S: Post lamba ho gaya. Apologies.😊

Same story. But apun ka friend apun khud hi tha. Realised much later ki r s sharma and satish chandra ke din dhal chuke hai upsc ke lie. Singhania is the one that helps in both pre and mains. 

Honestly I also read new ncerts and found the Hodgepodge. Thode bhaut naam extra die hue hai baki ekdum useless. You'll not learn much after rs sharma.(i read new ncerts bc of reluctance to pick bigger book like singhania but was greatly disappointed) i asked myself ki mein student of history hu ya ias aspirant? And then left all that old baggage and started afresh.

Sacchi advice dunga bro last 2 3 saal k papers (both pre and mains )dekhte hue padhna.

Atb.

P.s. however I later realised, you didn't ask for any advise. Haha. Lol. Sorry bro. #ignore.

Review of 1st 3day plan(21,22,23)

There were many new learnings bole toh life lessons, major one was hands on understanding of when ppl say "Energy goes where focus goes" and Keshav in his sermon says "Jeetne k lie toh kathin parishram ki avashyakta hi nahi hai parth, keval ekagrata aur samarpan hi kaafi hai". My focus was on effort, and to not to stay on that effort level- as i posted of buce lee somewhere here "there are no limits in anything. there are only plateaus and you must not sit there.. go beyond" .

Effort scale: 21: 6hr+, 22: 10+, 23:11+. Targets achieved in 3 days: Mrunal handout 3,4,5,6 pillars over.Eco survey vol1 over. pillar 1 and 2 next cycle. will take just half a day since i'm more comfi in those areas. Disappointment: i wish i had done vol 2 of survey as well!

and y'day was funny. stuck with the routine of sleep at 1 and wake up at 8. after 12 i closed one eye read with another, and then switching after some time and repeat. till they together went to brain complaining "ye launda humare sath game khel raha hai! " i was off to sleep at 4!😁😁😎

Hello everyone

I hope you guys are doing good. 

Today's target  just to shuffle between geography and economics. And read those 4 months Current affair pointer which I covered in last 3 days. 

A friend asked me to make a birthday video for his significant other. My social anxiety is at peak.  I did politely refuse but he could not understand . My Ukrainian is bad and my pronounciation I do have major problem.

I always tell myself that it's okay to be anxious about the way I speak just have good intention and  get work done. Then I will not have to be conscious about it. I think there are many people who  roll over there eyes when I go wrong but any ways I shall overcome this too.




My learning of mild anxiety is that once you release it, it's gone. So till the time it's there i tell anxiety "acha result ki anticipation me aayi ho, come come and enjoy your stay. result k baad ki tumhari in any case return ticket toh hai hi!", and always, like always it goes just the next day! 😃

Ek sawal: did you finally made the video?

Have you read mrunal handout before or just doing revision ? Its  600 pages, how to complete that for pre in that short period of time ?


Hi.

I had seen all lectures in Feb and read pillar 1 2 3 at that time. Had some memory of lectures but mostly it felt completely new for pillar 4 5 6.

But yeah had no choice. So it had to be done.

Hi Guys, can you suggest about IYB, how important is it and can I skip it. I was thinking of doing some imp. Chapters, if anyone can tell me what all chapters are most relevant, that will be super helpful, Thanks a ton!

bhai maine toh ajtk nahi padi, aur jo padh ke jate hai unhe bhi kuch khas extra marks late nahi dekha! So trust me, you can skip it! Do multiple revisions of your common books and CA.

If you have mrunal notes, in his pillar 6 he has made tables for every ministry and its program. Uska pillar 6 padh lo, ho jayega IYB bhi tumhara cover.

p.s. his handout/book is divided in 6 pillars/parts. and 6th pillar is of some 60 70 pages!

It refers to Pomodoro technique in which you work for 25 minutes and rest for 5 minutes. Works really well for some people though it has never worked for me.

Is strategy me toh apna 25-30 ho jayega. Padhai kam rest zyada.😁

@Raillife bhai 1 din me 1 pillar ho pa rha tha. Baki kuch ni hota tha fir. Apki efficiency sahi hai, target set kar lo ki pillar toh end karna hi hai. Usse fir 6 nahi toh 7 8 din me toh ho hi jayega . Pillar 5 is smaller and less relevant so usko ghaseet maar sakte ho. So on last day I completed 2 pillars 5 and 6.

Tasks for today (30-08-2020)

  1. One mock test + analysis
  2. Start with modern history (1/4)
  3. Start Environment Current Affairs (1/5)

Short and doable. Let's hope I actually do it.

Did the mock test but not the analysis.Anybody has any tips for powering through the test analysis? 

Was able to completed modern history till the part I had decided. But that took so much time that I couldn't start with Current Affairs. I don't know how I will be able to do it all in 30 days.

How much importance should be given to the last two pillar of mrunal sirs notes. I literally dragging myself through it.  Could anyone suggest a way to go about them 

5th pillar is not much relevant. 6th pillar is very very important. You can also see the first page where breakup of prelims questions asked.

P.s. here after a long time oatmeal 😋😁

I slept like bear  and I woke up thinking September started busy in my own world I typed  submitted it too and then I realized oh the duck although my targets remain the same . But oh gaawd what did I do. 

Apologies to everyoneb my sleep cycle is doo doo pie. 

@HotBloodPrince  could you just bring your charm here to cover up my blunder 🥺

You're right september has just started. But maine is prithvi ke rules me constitutional amendment not under article 368 kar die hai. Tumhare agle 2 mahine k har din me 12 hr hi honge.

So plan accordingly. 😂
