Nitin Sangwan on asking about the Preparation of UPSC IAS Exam, he says, "When I made my mind to appear for the IAS Exam and began IAS preparation, I used to hear the fact that one has to devote 15-16 hours every day and without spending that much of time in studies you cannot make it possible. So, in regard to this, I would like to say that this is only a myth. I don’t think that a common person can study for 16 hour continuously for 9 to 12 months and may be he/she can study that much of longs hour in a hurry only for 1 week, 10 days, 20 days or for 1 month but after that it will be very tough. The IAS preparation is not only to do study but it is to make mindset of doing a balance study."
