What is the best way to begin IAS preparations without the assistance of a coach?

Candidates who are planning to sit for the upcoming IAS Exam and are doing their preparation at home will find the following pointers to be extremely beneficial. Former IAS toppers have recommended many of these tactics.

Find out what the UPSC CSE exam is all about


Step #1:Making a strategy is easier if you have a clear understanding of your goal in mind. Learn about the UPSC civil service exam eligibility and format. To begin, determine if you’re eligible for the programme. Here you can see if you’re eligible to sit for the UPSC exam. You should have a good idea of what to expect during the test. The exam is divided into three sections, as previously mentioned. Here, you will find the complete UPSC exam pattern.


Step#2: UPSC syllabus.

One of the most difficult things an aspirant has to deal with is the UPSC Syllabus. You must be well-versed in the course material, which is extensive. The optional subject for the UPSC Mains exam should be chosen based on the same analysis.

Examine the syllabus for each of the optional subjects you plan to take for the mains exam. For effective preparation, it’s critical to become well-versed in the course material so that you can make connections between what you learn in class and what you read in the media.


Step#3: Make a work plan, and then follow through on it.

Once you’ve learned about the exam’s format and syllabus, the next step is to devise a study strategy that works best for you. Because there is so much material to learn, making a study plan is essential. Self-study students need to make a detailed plan for their studies. To be successful, you need to stick to your game plan when you don’t have access to coaching or mentorship. Self-study necessitates a new level of self-control and self-discipline. If you want to succeed, you must avoid any distractions at all costs.


Step#4:Notes and revisions 

Taking adequate notes is an important part of being well-prepared. Whether you’re studying from the daily newspaper or a standard textbook, you need to take detailed notes that are relevant to the material being covered in the exam. Also, be sure to go over what you’ve learned frequently in class. Your memory improves as you revise.


Step #5: Seek assistance as necessary

There are a lot of people like you who haven’t taken the time to get help from a coach. The internet is a great place to meet people who share your interests. So, whenever you run into a problem, don’t hesitate to contact them and have your questions answered. Share your thoughts and ideas as well. As a result, you’ll be better prepared and be able to move more quickly.


Step #6: Find information online

One of the best things about using online resources is that they are available around the clock, allowing aspirants to get help whenever they need it. To do well on the IAS exam, candidates must focus on self-study and preparation. A coaching institute may help, but only as long as you’re willing to put in your own effort to get the best out of it.


Step#7:Remember to take a break 

Short breaks are necessary after long periods of study to allow your mind to rest. You can’t keep going unless you take regular breaks to rest and recharge your body and mind. Take advantage of any free time you have to indulge in your favourite pastimes. Select which friends and family members you spend time with.


This is the final step, so have faith and persevere

“Going it alone with your IAS preparation takes a lot of guts. However, if you are a regular student and have a solid study strategy, you will succeed. Effort and focus are the keys to success.”
