@Raillife i am a working proffessional and i dont even get that much time as i work in one of the essential services. 

After office .. i get 3-4 hrs .. i engage myself in reading the topic and scribbling fast the important points from the chapter then and there.. in rough page. This way it engages me fully, i am focussed on what i am doing and get hold of things faster. If i just keep on reading my mind wanders. 

Morning i get up around 4am .. do my chores till 4.30 and sit back to study finishing remaining topics, revise whats already read and attempt the test sharp @7am. Then during the day, as and when i get time in office i revise my test. My score for past 6 test ranged between 50-69M. But i have made it a point to not miss a test. Even if i score low i wont miss it. 

I do not get enough time to see the videos. I wish to make best use of my weekends. Thats it. 

I hope this helps u in some way.

guys how you able to complete the daily syllabus ?

also how you remembering the personalities and  event name,In today's paper,I knew one-two things about the every event/question but it did not solve the question.

@Raillife In history, create story. Link events of the same time/period. Recall without looking. And context yaad rakho. Also, for a personality remember what he is known for best,like for example bhagat singh - revolutionary + socialist (then events related to him&his ideology )- inke baare mein koi question aaye think on those lines only. 

I hope i made some sense.

SFG Test #19 - Geography

59.33M - 33C 10W 7U


Didn't complete syllabus. Need to move on with other work. Can't post errors here today.

The results do give some pressure. Gone are the times when results were the times of excitement which now became kind of depressing. 

Hi,

I felt the same initially. Getting low scores consistently demoralised me and I almost felt like giving up. About a week ago I started reading the comments on this thread and it gave me a little hope. I am still too hesitant to post my score but reading your error assessments has given me a new perspective to approach this exam.

Most of the times when I look at your corrections, I go like, "man I knew this was confusing. I am not alone!!" You have inspired me to work on my mistakes and today when I read this post I felt obliged to thank you for your efforts. Keep working hard and keep inspiring!!

Hello! I'll also be posting daily performance. I've started prep after a gap of one year and hoping daily posting will keep me in check. 

Today's biggest concern - Tribal and peasant movements

Polity 15th July

Correct: 45

Incorrect: 5

Fraternity

(Though felt that DPSP is for govt & nothing specific fraternity related therein; I tend to mark all of above in such Q, logic: kahin forum bol de ki 39(b)(c), 43A/B se bhi fraternity badhti hai)

Elusive prince, striped hairstreak AP

(Had read an article about largest butterfly of India: Himalayan female gold birdswing; 2nd:southern birdswing; mujhe bas south yaad aa raha tha, so eliminated AP/A&N. Actually I had missed this, even felt that that article was about some record & not new species. Tend to attempt 90%+, should learn smart skipping)

Budget discussion (1892 act)

(Galat yaad tha ki 1861: discussion, 1892:questions)

St helena act 1833

(Marked 1813, b/c waterloo, lol, even thay was 1815)

Federalism

(B/c FC - tax devolution - federalism)

sfg test - #9 May CA 2020

62.67M - 35C 11W 4U

1. Gopala Krishna Gokhale

2. Non Aligned MOvement membership

3. CBD - I knew it was just opened for signature in earth summit 1992 but thought it was adopted later. Over imposition of logic :P

4. POSHAN Abhiyan - MoWCD. Read a hundred times and forget a hundred times

5. SARFAESI - god knows about that SC judgement

6. National INfrastructure Pipeline - Never heard before. Thought it was some gas pipeline in exam. Turns out totally different

7. Mental Healthcare Act - Very important now especially after what happened to SSR. RIP SSR:heart:

8. Thought Botanical Survey of India was autonomous but it isn't.

9. MGNREGA - first of all I missed the rural household itself. So I am out. But I guess some good people might have passed this test and could have thought it wasn't the aim of MGNREGA to strengthen PRI. Anyway nothing to say from my side. Totally fallen flat.

10. Wildlife Protection Act - got correct for totally wrong reasons. Thought state couldn't declare for 'any area'. Turns out state can't declare at all and only centre can. Also remember that even centre can't declare an animal as vermin if it is listen in Schedule 1 or part 2 of second schedule

11. Competition Commission of India. - Totally forgot there was Mo Corporate Affairs. They put the same minister for both finance  & CA :smirk_cat: :smirk_cat:and I totally forgot there existed two separate ministries after just seeing Nirmala Ji everytime.

12. SAGAR doctrine only for Indian Ocean Region. Now-a-days even though there is a lot of talk about greater indo-pacific at least on paper, we just add pacific everywhere. Seems like this is only IOR. Also this concept is to be read with IOC which also deals with only IOR. India is not a member of IOC though, not even maldives :P

13. One nation one card. Knew about NCBC. But thought that was not indigenous

14. Forgot the concepts of tropical cyclones. BTW what is happening to my memory :fearful:

15.  Energy Transition Index - WEF. Read a lot about this before exam. How india is improving and all. But in exam forgot and put something else.


Okay peeps enjoy your weekend. I think I am going to go with Dil Bechara movie or a rewatch of masaan or may be something else.

SFG 2/Test 5

Attempted 49

Correct/Incorrect- 43/6


9. Art 323B Tribunal - Good question from Forum

12. Gram Sabha- Not all persons.

14. Fast Track Courts - No idea (Unattempted)

17. Property- Dumb mistake. Property legal right

19.Central Council of Local Government- shot in the dark

22. SC appellate- dumb mistake

42. Municipal Council - NOT CORRECT


Overall, most of it was guess work, which could've gone either way. This time it paid off. Not necessarily always.
