UPSC Exam Tips: Whether you take the preliminary exam question paper or the main exam, they give you trouble. They are disturbing in the sense that when you read them, the mind wanders for a while. I don’t understand what UPSC wants you to know. The question asked is not caught, and until it is caught, you won’t be able to do anything special with it.
Now the question here is that these questions do not come to anyone’s throat? And it begs the question why some people come in the clutches of those who come. This proves that the question is not that he is not caught. The problem before us is that they do not come under our grasp and the main reason is obvious – lack of understanding of the fundamentals of the subject. Once the basics of the subject are mastered the questions will start making sense. This is its first advantage.
Know the main exam topic
Try to know the character of all the subjects (except Essay and Language papers) in main exam. Most of the questions contain words like ‘analyze’, ‘explain’, ‘explain critically’ etc. It is clear that they are not asking you for facts, but with the help of those facts they are asking you for analytical knowledge i.e. UPSC. Your mind’s logic is to be tested. A rational mind is not lazy, not lazy, a man whose mind is not lazy, will not be lazy either. Any country needs only enthusiastic, smart and dynamic administrators. It is obvious that only those brains can be logical and those brains capable of analysis, which have an understanding of the fundamentals of the subject. This is its second advantage.
Thoughts are explored
Many of the main exam questions ask for your opinions. For example, a typical study question is – “Illicit money transfer poses a serious security threat to a country’s economic sovereignty. What is its significance for India and what steps should be taken to avoid this threat?” You will not form your own opinions about illegal money and the entire mechanism of its transfer until you know it, if you only know these basics then you will no doubt be able to answer this question. . It is clear that in any subject, original ideas and their conclusions emerge only when we have knowledge of the basics. This is the third gain.
Don’t ignore these facts
Never lose sight of the fact that knowledge is not a solid but a fluid. It is constantly flowing and in the process of flowing it reaches somewhere. Wherever it reaches, it mixes with existing objects and takes on new colors, forms and shapes. This process of knowledge has been going on for centuries, will continue for centuries, and in this process we have been able to reach this height of knowledge, but not with information. Most information is solid. They live in the same place. They can be used for decoration, but cannot be mixed with others to create new dishes. But remember here that by converting this same information into knowledge, we turn it into liquid like ice; That which is in solid form, can be melted and converted into liquid form.

Understanding the basics of the subject
As soon as you understand the basics of the subject, you also have the skills to turn information into knowledge and make it flow. Knowledge does not exist separately. He just remains absorbed in information. Don’t you think that only by mastering this ability you will be able to answer civil services exam questions like UPSC? What is a “relevant, meaningful and concrete” answer?
