IAS Prelims 2014: How to start preparation

23-AUG-2013 Author : Rachit

Question. How can I start the preparation for IAS Pre 2014?

Answer.  Union Public Service Commission has released the Examination Schedule for the 2014. According to the released schedule, the IAS Preliminary Exam 2014 will be conducted on 24th August, 2014 .So for the candidates who are planning for the IAS Preliminary 2014 will have around one year from now. Right now is the ideal time to start the preparation as the exam demands around one year of concentrated and focused study. The candidate can start their preparation for the IAS Preliminary 2014 by starting from the basic books and learning about the current scenario of national and international happenings. IAS Preliminary Exam is a test of the candidates overall persona. It is all about to handle the pressure during exam preparation and at the time of exam.  It is high time to start preparation by gauging one’s own preparation in respect to the IAS Preliminary Examination. The IAS Preliminary Exam 2014 will consist of two papers because UPSC has not announced any further change in the pattern of IAS Preliminary examination. The candidate should always have a keen eye on the current events, their repercussions, their importance for the national and international scenario and above all the conditions which resulted in such event.

For the candidate Syllabus and the Previous Year Question Papers are the key to know the demand of the examination. The development of perspective is very important for the preparation of IAS Preliminary exam. The candidate should try to find out the ‘what’, ‘why’, ’how’, ’when’ and ’who’ of the news. The General Studies Paper I of the IAS Preliminary Exam, in the recent past, has become very much current oriented. The paper asked about the under currents of the news. The traditional who’s who is a thing of past now. The exam is more oriented toward the background of the news. The main and the big problem which the candidates are facing is the comprehensiveness of the information on a topic. The exam paper questions asked each and every aspect of any topic such as all the provisions of a policy or all the rules of any government notifications and the likes. This is a big problem which surfaces as the candidate appear in the examination.
