Hello sir, due to age barrier I am not eligible until 2016 and I am done with my graduation, I have got 2 years to prepare, so how should I use these years?

You should continue to prepare and take preparation to the level that this examination entails.

Aim to have such preparation that you should be able to accomplish the task in first attempt itself.

As such the Civil Services Examination syllabus is vast and involves constituents from diverse disciplines that require long, systematic study-plan. You should understand the complete exam-plan and related requirements at each stage of the examination.

Self-assessment is must at this stage as you need to figure out your strengths and weaknesses. This will help in prioritizing the areas that are new and require attention.

You should strengthen your basics with NCERT Books and as you advance, you should rely on standard text-books and content from trusted sources.

Continuous revision and answer-writing practice will help in having grip and understanding the topics thoroughly.

Make such a strategy that your complete preparation (Preliminary + Main Examination) is over by December 2015 and you are able to utilize the time before examination in revising and updating your information level.

All the best!
