[Results] Prelims 2020 Over - Gearing for 2021

Hello dear friends !!

Please help me out ...This is my third attempt 24age and I have failed in my both attempts just because I could not recall the subject that I had read in exam Hall.

This year too inspite of multiple revision I  am feeling low confidence as if I have not studied anything whole year.

Being from middle class this is taking a negative effect on my health and sleep !!

Writing this at 3:45 am

Please help me !!

Hi. Let me tell you 2 instances.

In my 2nd attempt in 2016, I could not make to final list(my interview was on second last day). I had only 18 days for 2017 prelims. And guess what ...I scored 124 in prelims.(cutoff was 105)

In 2019, I prepared for 2 months for prelims..but still could not clear prelims. When answer key came, I did score 106 in gs but failed in Csat.

The main reason was negativity, lack of confidence and lack of proper sleep.

So the conclusion :

1. First , see prelims  just  like a exam.do not equate it with your life.

2.dont think much about result.otherwise this will make you anxious.

3. Solve previous year questions. They are easy and will give you confidence.

4.have trust in preparation. Prelims is not much about knowledge but about mindset.

5. Have belief in your god.

6. Change your routine.one way is to - if you sleep at 4 am then next day sleep at 7 am and  next to next day sleep at 10 am.when you reach normal ...stick to it.

7. Do yoga and meditation for 15 mins.

8. Do not solve hard mock test. And don't calculate your marks.

9. Stick to your study plan and try to recall while revising. 

10.remember 

"What you think, you become.

What you feel, you attract.
What you imagine, you create."

11. Therefore .. don't let negativity come to your mind. Repeat lines in your mind which can give you confidence. Like ...I have prepared a year with honesty.
