  • 5.  Candidates will be tested for some essential qualities like power of retention, clarity of concepts, ability to identify the correct alternatives with efficiency and accuracy, values and concern for society.  The main constraint is the time one gets to answer questions.  It is a multiple choice question paper, it needs a different preparation and a proper strategy.  The examination is designed to evaluate certain qualities like a sharp memory and basic retention power. 8/2/2014 5 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake
  • 6.  One should be able to differentiate between relevant and irrelevant information.  The questions asked in the General Studies paper are of 10+2 level.

It is better to understand and establish a correlation between related concepts from other subjects and current events and happenings.  It is necessary to have a positive attitude and a great amount of will power to succeed to achieve your goal. 8/2/2014 8 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake

  • 10. SUCCESS SECRETS Hard work:  Remember that there is no substitute to hard work. There is no short cut to success and hard work never goes unrewarded. Planning and systematic study:  Proper planning right from the stage of selection of text books is absolutely necessary.  There are ways to study more effectively and with less stress and more enjoyment.  It is wise to take a three pronged approach to preparation, reading to learn, making effective notes and able to write answers to various kinds of questions. 8/2/2014 10 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake
  • 11. Time management:  Effective time management is another requirement.  We keep hearing the word "Busy" a lot. There are two kinds of ‘busy’(ness): chaotic, disorganized busy and calm, effective busy.  It goes without saying that being the latter helps to pack in more productivity in your work. 8/2/2014 11 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake
  • 12. Self-confidence:  Your self-confidence can make the difference. Your self- confidence should be at an all time high - always.  You should be in the company of people, who can increase your motivational levels high and can inspire you.  Form a group of close friends, who are as determined as you are to make it to the Civil Services Examination. Dedication:  Be totally dedicated and focused in your studies. You may have to sacrifice something like movies, parties, and entertainments etc at this stage of your life to achieve bigger things. 8/2/2014 12 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake
  • 13. Patience:  As the CSE preparation spans a minimum of one year, right from the Preliminary stage to the interview state, it requires a lot of patience to maintain your tempo.  One should not lose patience and the tempo throughout the preparation period till success. 8/2/2014 13 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake
  • 14. TIPS FOR ANSWERING QUESTIONS AT THE PRELIMS Don’t waste time:  Start answering the questions from the minute you get them.  Waste no time on reading the entire question paper first. First answer all the question you are sure you know the answers to.  Skip all the difficult questions in the first round: in this round if you find yourself stuck in a question for more than 10 seconds, just skip it.  However, keep making a small mark on the question paper to indicate that you have skipped that question in the first round. This will enable you to save time in the next rounds. 8/2/2014 14 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake
  • 15. TIPS FOR ANSWERING QUESTIONS AT THE PRELIMS Allocate time for each answer:  In GS Prelims Paper-1, since you are to answer 100 questions (80 questions for Paper-2) in two hours, you have an average of 72 seconds (90 seconds for Paper-2) for each question.  So on pro rata basis you should answer 25 questions every 30 minutes (20 questions every half an hour for Paper-2).  But be harsh with yourself in the first hour. Allocate 40-45 seconds for each question (55-60 seconds in case of Paper-2). 8/2/2014 15 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake

  • 17. TIPS FOR ANSWERING QUESTIONS AT THE PRELIMS  Thus if in the first 30 minutes you haven’t answered 30- 35 questions (25-27 questions in case of optional subject), you should tell yourself that you are not doing well.  This is because in the first hour you will be answering the easiest questions and in the last half-hour you will need plenty of spare time for “logic and guesswork”. 8/2/2014 17 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake

  • 19. TIPS FOR ANSWERING QUESTIONS AT THE PRELIMS Negative marking:  There will be penalty for wrong answers.  For each wrong answer,one-third (0.33) of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty.  If a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as a wrong even if one of the given answers happens to be correct and there will be same penalty.  But if a question is left blank, i.e. no answer is given by the candidate, there will be no penalty for that question. 19 How to prepare for Civil Services Examination-An Introductory Lecture by Subir Maitra at ATI-CSSC, Salt Lake
