CS(Mains) - The Way Ahead

There are lot of theories existing in the world of civil service aspirants about the methods of study for mains. Many people divide their study in such a way that they divide the months between prelims and mains for different subjects say 1 month for paper 1 2 weeks for essay etc. This kind of study is not useful in a civil service point of view considering the dynamics of topics involved in civil service preparation. Many others still has not understood the need to study more than the static topics for the civil service exam to study the dynamic and contemporary issues. This article will give a comprehensive idea about an ideal time table that could be followed in mains study and the reasons for this optimization.

Idea of studying a topic for a month to ensure complete coverage of the same is a false due to two reasons. First considering the fact that there is lot of chance to forget the things that were studied previously and if not to revise it the time resources that needs to be put in to keep it in recent memory  is enormous. Second the boredom and lethargy caused due to studying a subject alone is also high that kills the enthusiasm in you. Due to this reason it is highly advisable to switch between different topics and subjects while studying. The selection of topics should be done on the basis of mood of that day so that you have interest of the subject while studying and you get more that day from the subject. Each day it is highly advised to divide your study time equally between General studies and optionals so that at the end you will be prepared in both. Also spend time for answer writing practice and news paper reading every day as minute by minute and hour by hour you develop in to a fully prepared aspirant for the most competitive exam in the country.

Also another important thing is that one should keep note of  life style while studying as it will play a good role in helping keep the momentum of study. It is necessary to take breaks in between and find time for enjoyment Also it is necessary that you keep a sustainable life style and time table so that you could continue it all along till you clear the exam.

And of all the most important thing is that there should be consistency in your studies and also you should at any cost not deviate from the time table and your plans, this will essentially help you clear the exam.
