IAS Key Preparation Tips: Civil Services Exam is considered to be the toughest exam in the country. Civil Services Examination is conducted in three stages. In these exams students have to prepare first for the prelims, then for the mains and then for the interview round. Most of the students crack the UPSC prelims, but when it comes to the mains exam, students have to prepare in an all-round way. Along with reading many subjects like history, geography, politics, science, mathematics in depth, you also have to remember things on notes.
Most of the students are scared before the main exam, they don’t know how to complete the preparation. Keeping in mind the problems of students, 2009 IAS batch officer Avnish Sharan has shared some tips. Avneesh Sharan through his Twitter handle has mentioned 5 things students should remember during mains exam.
Refer to the syllabus frequently
Avnish Sharan has written that students should go through the exam syllabus not once but again and again. They should know from which topic and how many questions will come in the paper.
