How To Prepare For UPSC-Prelims UPSC-Prelims includes two objective type question papers of two hundred marks and two hours time duration for each paper. One is on General Studies and the other is General Aptitude Paper which has now replaced the optional subject that was there earlier. With the Civil Service exam having very limited seats it's a very difficult exam to crack. Many students appear multiple times to clear it.Changes in formats of question papers always tend to create a lot of mental discomfort in students. Many students are fearful of subjects like mathematics. This fear may be baseless considering the changes lay greater emphasis on the "aptitude" which mainly involves reasoning skills and not just mathematics.The civil services examination is basically a test to choose suitable administrators. It tests the candidate right from the stage when one starts the preparation. One common misconception about the prelims is that it is a test of facts and figures. That was never so and specially now. A candidate should have the right frame of mind and the will power to succeed in the exam. A proper action plan is needed for the preparation itself since he /she will be tested for some essential qualities like power of retention, clarity of concepts, ability to identify the correct alternatives with efficiency and accuracy. All this requires a quick decision making power.With the new pattern, more stress is on language skills and analysis and decision making capacities, so work on these on a consistent basis as these are skills that are developed over years and not just in a few months. It would be advised to start focusing on your problem solving and language skills as soon as you decide to take these exams. This is where CHAHAL ACADEMY is different from others and provides best coaching for upsc exam in ahmedabad.Paper 1 is on General StudiesThis includes areas likeIndian National Movement, Indian Polity, Basic Economic Understanding, GeographyWhile the dynamic part includes current affairs, GK and has no proper definition and syllabus making quite vast.Paper 2 includes mathematics, reasoning, analytical ability, and interpersonal skills. Unlike paper 1 which has a static part, paper 2 is dynamic in many sense.Unlike paper 1 where quantity of questions is a major determinant for the static section, paper 2 cannot be tamed without solving dynamic questions, that requires on the spot mental ability.Since the preliminary exam in particular is a test of endurance, candidate must prepare on the physical as well as mental level. The main constraint is the time one gets to answer the questions. On an average one gets around 40 seconds for each question.One sure way of dealing with this stress is to take a few deep breaths. Meditation and Yoga also help in dealing with stress to a great extent.The prelims exam since is a multiple choice question test, it needs a different preparation and a proper strategy. The first thing a candidate needs to bear in mind is that the examination is designed to evaluate certain qualities like a sharp memory and basic retention power. There are ways to increase one's memory like preparing charts. One gets confused when faced with mind boggling facts and figures. Important facts and figures can be simplified and represented on charts and they can arranged in the form of tables or graphs. Another thing to remember is to make short and brief notes on each topic so that the entire syllabus can be revised a few days before the exam.It is better to use diagrams and link words which make it easier to understand difficult concepts. One more technique to help in retaining information is the use of abbreviations. Since the syllabus involves exhaustive information abbreviations help you to remember it better. It is a good method to remember dates, facts and figures in a picture format and to break up complex names and places into smaller and simpler words. The last and the most important technique is to do regular revision. This helps in retaining the maximum information. A separate time slot should be given to doing not only regular but multiple revisions like daily, weekly, monthly etc.Many candidates make a mistake of overloading themselves with lots of information and end up remembering nothing. One should be able to differentiate between relevant and irrelevant information. Since the preliminary exam is an elimination round the candidate should also learn to focus only on the information needed and filter out the rest. It helps to discuss with friends and teachers but the most reliable way is to solve past years question papers. One should also keep abreast with current events and information related to them. For best ias exam coaching in ahmedabad- join CHAHAL ACADEMY.An important thing to remember is that for this exam it is not just enough to remember information but to understand the concepts as well. Instead of memorizing facts and figures, conceptual clarity in needed. The questions asked are of 10+2 level. Therefore emphasis has to be on conceptual clarity. Any concept has to be understood with its origin, merits and de-merits, then it needs to be analyzed with other relevant topics and lastly it has to be correlated with the events that have taken place during the year.The preliminary exam requires candidates who have the acumen and the ability to choose the right option from four given options. This needs a proper method of elimination. It is a good idea to go through previous years and model question papers and solve as many of them as possible. Taking a mock test of a certain number of G.S. questions and mathematics and general ability questions would be a good practice work and help to pick out the most appropriate option.Each prelims paper is for two hours but a lot of time is wasted in signing attendance sheets etc, therefore there is a lot of need for effective Time Management is needed for the actual exam. It is not enough to know the right answer but it has to be marked correctly on the answer sheet. Speed and Accuracy are important, so solving model question papers on a regular basis would be a great help.A good presence of mind is needed to eliminate the least appropriate options and arrive at the right one. However beware of negative marking so it is better to mark only sure shot answers than making guesses.Throughout the preparation for the prelims exam, it is important to remember that any topic or concept should not be studied in isolation. It is better to understand and establish a correlation between related concepts from other subjects and current events and happenings.Even with all this preparation, it is necessary to have a positive attitude and a great amount of will power to succeed to achieve your goal that of getting through the civil services examination with flying colors!

HOW TO READ NEWS PAPER MORE EFFECTIVELY for IAS Exam PreparationMany people do not know how to read the newspaper and what news to read. The doubt is natural for freshers who are just in to the field of civil service exam preparation. Also covering the entire set of news given in a single newspaper itself is very time consuming and for a civil service aspirant it is not worth the time spend. So the question is how to select from different news in view of the fact that a number of questions for prelims and mains is directly taken from new articles in different leading must to read news papers like The Hindu, The Indian Express etc. But to know what news to read and digg deep is always a confusion for a fresher who feels that every news is important and feels that like leaving a golden oppurtunity when he leaves a single news. Also for a civil service aspirant time is the constraint always and hence he has to get the maximum result in minimum time so he cannot spend all his time in current affairs instead there a lot of conventional topics to cover.First thing to note when you see a news paper is that things in the front page are the ones that are very important because that is why they have found place in the front page. So the news in the front page are very important read them thoroughly and read its follow up in the inner pages. So next it is better to read the last page than reading the consecutive next page. This is because the consecutive page has regional news which does not have that importance as is confined only to the region. The last page usually has many important news from different fields of science which often appear in the UPSC exam paper. Read the science and technology related news in the last page while avoiding lousy gossips about celebrities. If you have time you can read else leave it. So start from the last page backwards, so the next section is sports. Sports is a section that people usually avoid while preparing hectically for the civil services and civil service aspirants other than those with passion for sports rarely read sport section. But it is important to read sections related to doping, technology enable sports administration like the Hawk s eye etc. Next you have the business or economy page which is very important from the point of view of civil service exam. But there are enough material to avoid in that section too. News about corporate profits, their merger, acquisition and other business plan and largely news about regulators in the financial sector other than the RBI are things that can be avoided from the UPSC point of view. Next you have international page which is also important considering its desirability in UPSC exams. News relating to multilateral and international agencies and institutions and that news that have a direct or indirect bearing on India are the topics that needs attention in the international page. From the national page that is the next page you will have to read all news other than the comments from politicians on different topics. From that too, you will have questions in the UPSC exam which will not be related to the comments of different politicians instead it will be based on the underlying issues on which the comments were made. The editorial and open editorial pages are important. All that comes in the editorial are must to read while those in the open editorial are selective. The regional issues also need attention but which should be given according to time and relevance considerations.So reading newspapers is important while more important is to read it more intelligently and efficiently as reading news alone can fetch you a decent marks in prelims and mains if you are a studied person.At Chahal Academy we provide editorials of The Hindu and Indian express to our students on a daily basis without fail.Monthly current affairs magazines and discussion on current affairs is also taken up in class on weekly basis. This helps in upsc exam preparation.very effectively and is the secret of our results in civil services exam.

IAS PREPARATION TIPS FOR BEGINNERS ANDSome Myths About UPSC IAS Exam Preparation – Truths 1) They say IAS is the mother of all exams. Is it?Wrong. This is just another exam. The mother of all exams is Life. You can afford to fail in IAS, but not in Life. So, take IAS preparation as a phase in Life, not as your Life. 2) They say IAS is not for faint-hearted. Is it?If you think you are faint-hearted, better start preparing for IAS soon – it makes you stone-hearted. 3) One topper in an interview said that she studied 20 hours every day for 365 days. Is this true?May be she suffered from insomnia. Even now she will be working 20 hours a day as an officer. On a serious note, good sleep is very necessary to prepare well for this exam. It keeps you in good health. Don’t study beyond 14 hours unless you suffer from Insomnia. 4) Now you are saying 14 Hours! Are you mad?Calm down. If you have left your job, as a punishment you should devote these many hours. Didn’t you work 12 hours for your company? Anyway, every day at least 8 hours of planned study is required. If you can study more than that, it is well and good. But please ensure that you also get 6-8 hours of sound sleep. 5) My English is very poor. They say I am out of the race. Am I?No. You are still part of the race. Now you have figured out the problem – that your English is poor. Work on it. All you need is basic English. Moreover, you can write this exam and give the interview in your mother-tongue. Buy a basic Grammar book – read it, listen to English news on TV and radio, try to write something in English, everyday (don’t worry if it is very bad, keep trying) Necessity should push you to learn. Push yourself. Win the race. 6) I am worried. I can’t go to Delhi because of some personal reasons. They say it is Mecca for IAS aspirants. Can’t go to Delhi? Wow. That’s great. These days you can study from home itself. IAS preparation is neither religion nor life to seek enlightenment in a far away concrete desert. Do your duty sincerely, if pleased, almighty UPSC will call you to its shrine, if pleased with your personality, it will give you a pass to Heaven – the IAS. Why go there uninvited? 7) So how can I study from my home?These days you can buy books from online. Every topper has studied the same set of books as lakhs of aspirants do every year. The difference is that toppers plan their studies and execute those plans well. They practice writing. They take tests. They are confident. And they also have some luck. 8) Oh! So luck is needed for this exam.Ya, only if you think you are unlucky. Anyway, let me modify a famous quote for you – Success is one percent luck and ninety-nine percent perspiration. Don’t let that 99% thing slip from your hand. Toil sincerely, and you will be rewarded with that 1 percent luck. 9) It was my last attempt. I failed in Prelims. Now I want to kill myself. Help me.To kill you? First, kill your ego, not yourself. You took a journey but couldn’t reach the destination. It doesn’t mean the end of your life or the end of the road – start a new phase in your Life from where you are now. What matters in the end is how well you lived your Life, not how many successes you achieved. If the King has painful piles in his anus, what is the use of diamond studded golden throne? 10) Lakhs of aspirants give this exam and only few get into IAS. I am scared.Though lakhs of aspirants apply and write this exam, the real competition is between only 2000-3000 serious aspirants. Those who study systematically and consistently, get into service. If you do the same, you will be one among them. Don’t have fears even before you start. You must enter the race and work hard to win it.Remember this: “I never did a day’s work in all my Life. It was all fun” (Edison). Make the process fun, enjoy reading, love what you do and do everything to please your heart. Not the society. 11) They say there is corruption in recruiting IAS officers. Is it true?This allegation is utterly false. The whole examination is so opaque that you have to trust it blindly (Oxymoron). There may be lacunae in the way examination is held, or there may be loopholes in how an UPSC member is appointed, but there is never corruption involved in the recruitment of civil service officers. The steel produced is pure. You can trust it. (it gets corroded later, that is a different story though) 12) Those veterans laugh when I tell them I am preparing for IAS. Instead, they insist I should say that I am preparing for civil services. What is the difference?When you say you are preparing for civil services, you are not sure about getting into IAS/IPS. When you say you are preparing for IAS, you are confident that you want only IAS and you know how to get it. Choose the one suits you best. Not the veterans’. 13) I am getting headache while making notes. There are so many books to refer and I want my notes to be the best. What to do?Note this. Leo Tolstoy writes in Anna Karenina “If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content.” Also someone said, “Perfection is the child of time“. When you scout too many sources to make that perfect notes, you end up both loosing invaluable time and discontented. Managing time during the preparation is the most important aspect of this examination. Read one or two books for a topic. Re-read the same book even if some coaching institution or a publication house releases new notes/book in the market that has become famous. 14) They say IAS is the best job on Earth! Is it?Well, I thought becoming the President of US was the best thing on Earth. Anyway, the above statement is wrong. Ask Durga Shakti Nagpal. 15) At least in India it is the best job. Right?Yes. If you want to make a positive impact on the lives of thousands of poor, IAS is the best job. But you have to swim in the ocean infested by so many sharks. You should know how to swim, be fearless and armed with ammunition. There is a silver lining though. The ammunition is personal integrity and The People – if you do a good work, help the poor man on the streets and in the huts, people will love you. Sharks love votes. And the ocean will be safe for you. 16) Some say this exam is like a vast ocean and questions are asked from outside the syllabus, even from extraterritorial sources. Is it?No. Again wrong. UPSC strictly adheres to the syllabus. Though sometimes it seems like questions are asked from outside of the syllabus, they are actually in some ways related to it. For example, if there is a question like this, ‘Opportunity on Mars‘, one should not get bedazzled why UPSC is asking questions from ET source and start answering like, ‘If Nuclear war takes place and the Earth is destroyed, the opportunities on Mars are immense for the Humankind…...’Opportunity is the name of a Robot that was sent to mars in 2003. Awareness on ‘Robotics‘ and ‘Space‘ is part of the UPSC syllabus (Paper-IV). 17) I have a disease. I keep buying all the magazines and coaching material. Is there any cure for this? You know very well that you don’t read all the magazine and materials you buy. When you buy more and don’t use them, it only worsens your situation. The sight of those books frightens you. The cure is simple: first understand why you are buying so many books.You buy them to buy yourself momentary satisfaction, that you are doing right thing in your preparation. No, wrong. Always finish reading what you have now. If something is really missing from the book you have, then go for a new one.When you become aware that you are not going to read all the books you buy, you will stop buying them.

Important Things you must know, before you start preparing for UPSC Civil Services Examination.1. Why IAS? Before stepping into the preparation of one of the toughest exams in the nation, do take a step back and ask yourself why and take a personal interview evaluate your PI quotient. This would help you have a clearer mindset throughout your preparation. The personality test is where your candidature would be measured against your performance.2. Services under Civil Services ExaminationThe IPS, IRS, IFS fall under the aegis of the IAS exam and the cutoff to get recruited in the services mentioned above is decided after the conduction of the exam.IPS­ Indian Police ServiceIRS­ Indian Revenue ServiceIFS­ Indian Foreign ServiceA proper understanding of what your target is, will streamline your preparation and keep you focused better.3. How do you think you can contribute?The final is the personality test, being an IAS officer places you with the nation’s finest. Ask yourself where is that you can prove your caliber, what changes can you bring. Your plan of contribution need not to be monumental but it should set you apart, as this will give you an edge over all the other applicants in the interview session.4. Yes! IAS preparation is incredibly demandingIt is not an overrated fact that IAS the nation’s toughest competitive exam and it demands intensive preparation and practice. There is no generalized format or answer for the most commonly asked questions’ how many hours does an IAS aspirant need to put in every day. It will differ from person to person. So let us look at it from general perspective.Time Required:10-­12 months of aggressive preparation is a must. Four out of every ten Indians (21­-32 years) aspire to become an IAS officer. Only 5% of that massive number actually makes the cut. The reason is no rocket science; it is only because of the kind of preparation they resort to. A slow and delayed preparation is equivalent to no preparation. The 5% who make it go all guns blazing into their IAS prep are the one who put an effective and ideal number of hours in preparation every day.One should also understand that it is not about quantitative preparation and what required is qualitative. It is about the completion of your short term target. In an ideal situation, you should target two subjects every day. If you really are an UPSC aspirant then you should start preparing for exams right from your school days as the syllabus contains mostly of 6th to 12th standard books and keep making notes and sit for 10-­12 hours before a year of the exam.Don’t sit mugging for long hours take short breaks in between and always remember the right coaching; the right books; and the right motivation will make you crack the exam at ease.5. Outline the syllabus and Design your preparationHeard of the biological process “catabolism” where you break down the original components into their by­products, do the same with your IAS syllabus. Find out about what topic you would have an edge and the topics you would need help in. Do it for all the subjects. You have now marked your territory; the bulk of the syllabus wouldn’t scare you at all. Also, this is an excellent confidence building exercise.6. Objectifying the syllabusMost of the IAS aspirants feel that the bulk of IAS syllabus deters them. No doubt, the syllabus is huge, but remind yourself that it is something that you have already studied before. Let’s take a quick look at the definition for ‘Divide and Conquer’. It basically means that you divide the population in this case the subjects into manageable chunks and that makes it impossible for them to come together (dividing them) and fight against the sovereign authority (conquering them). Let’s subject IAS to it.Theory Papers: History, Economy, Polity, Geography, Optional subject (Demands a lot of your time!) Aptitude Test: CSAT (Demands a fragment of your time, more of your intelligence!)7. Enjoy your preparationUndeniably, UPSC preparation is a lengthy process, but you won’t find it easy if you don’t enjoy your preparation. Preparing for UPSC doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice all your hobbies, make sure to keep abreast your hobbies as it will make your preparation more fun. Don’t give up music especially if you are a music lover and there are people who study while listening to music and if you are one among them then definitely you make your learning more interesting and enjoyable. If you are passionate about anything make sure to keep it abreast during your UPSC preparation as this will keep you lively.8. Finding a proper Coaching Institute for UPSC exam preparationFor a beginner it is advised that one should take coaching once.It will help in covering the syllabus in short time, following a specific schedule and evaluation through test series.This is where we at Chahal Academy will help you in every stage of upsc exam preparation for for many reasons chahal academy is the best ias exam preparation coaching academy in Ahmedabad and also the best upsc exam preparation coaching academy in gujarat.
