STUDY PLAN 2021:

Learn & Revise- The vast syllabus of the civil service examination can get you anxious. Plan your study method in such a way that you get to revise whatever you have learnt the whole day or week.

Making evident notes- This tip doesn't even need to be here but yes, making quick notes when you're studying helps them the next time you flip their books for revision.

Practising questions- A crucial task to add to your daily life is practising previous years' question paper. At least, the past 5 years' questions need to be solved by the learner. Solving past year questions might sound like a mundane task, but it is worth the pain. It helps you to provide a clear picture of what you are going to approach.

Be strategic- Candidates need to find out the master plan that works for them. Critical evaluation of their performance must help them to identify the best strategy. Keeping positive thoughts will add zest to the daily routine, which eventually will ease the exam pressure.

Time Management- Managing time in a well-structured manner is a significant job, both before and after you crack any competitive exam.

Thus, let not anything hinder you now, be smart and strategic, keeping the preparation well-organized. Mark your calendars, save the date. You reached until here, which ultimately proves you are able!
