UPSC has very clear Exam-Plan with prescribed syllabus for question papers at each stage of the examination.

The approach for it is very different from your academics; more willingly than preparing different subjects listed in syllabus, it is a preparation of candidates’ mindset and gradual expansion of skills, knowledge and overall personality that suits the traits of a ‘Civil Servant’.

It would be easier to handle the preparation if you care for quality books and study material, right choice of optional subject, worthy guidance and acknowledging the exam-standards that it entails. 

When we talk of Exam-Standards; what does it mean?

A cursory look at the syllabus and previous years’ question papers would make things clear for you.

The level of difficulty for questions asked, areas from the syllabus that dominate the question papers and current trends reveal the examiners’ expectations.

A bookish approach and being confined to similar resource everyone is using doesn’t suffice the purpose. In recent years, many a toppers have labeled it as ‘Bookless Examination’.

You have to look a particular topic from different angles, besides being familiar with the topic, find out relevance of the theme in contemporary set-up and capability to put together views and opinion helps in tackling question effectively.

Again, with practice and being exposed to the quality testing and evaluation, you start identifying the core of the question and understand difficulty as well as intricacy it demands.

In Preliminary Examination, having regular exercise will give you proficiency to answer question with speed and accuracy.

And when it comes to Main Examination, such practice enables you in attempting questions in examination hall efficiently; write succinct and precise answers. 

You have enough time in hand to plan and alter your preparation-plans so that you habitually evaluate what you read that in turn helps in uplifting preparation level.
