- One must begin with a subject that interests one the most as UPSC Mains is a subjective exam and requires a lot of theory study. The candidates generally prepare one subject at a time which may prove beneficial for some due to focus issues but as suggested by various experts and teachers, one must always start two subjects at the same time to keep it momentous.
- People generally loathe English Grammar and Optional subjects they have to choose, which must be avoided by starting the preparation from the next day after Prelims. The more you practice the better you would become. Instead, it is suggested to study optional along with general studies subjects to keep it revised till the last day.
- Every candidate must write answers to avoid general grammatical errors and build his/her speed for an easy approach to the exam.
- Divide your time of the day to complete the syllabus one by one. At any cost, candidates are advised not to study anything beyond the syllabus as UPSC never goes beyond it. So Stick To The Syllabus!
- Do not leave current affairs study at the time of Mains which is a common mistake made by many. Current Affairs keeps you updated and makes you ready to write good essays.
- The hours of study must be increased gradually and time of relaxation must be arranged within the study hours as well. Do not get distracted at any time and when you do, take a break.
The above strategy suggested by the experts would prove to be very beneficial for the candidates and aspirants of the UPSC Civil Services Exam.
