Hi,
I want to talk to the serious aspirants who are working 8-10 hrs and preparing for this examination. How they manage their time and what specific sources they refer?

Hi,
I am presentlyorking in a public sector bank.my job timings are 10-5 .Daily commute took around 2.5 hours ( but as I have to change mode of transport multiple times, can't study properly during travel time).
I have given 5 attempts ( only civils )where I couldn't clear prelims), but do not think I am not serious.
For 2021 I am planning to appear for forest service only. Thinking about taking geology and forestry as optional.
If anyone could guide me with a proper plan it will be really helpful.

Hey any one with sociology optional and wish to cover it w.r.t the answer writing and GS papers? 

Am also interested to participate the experience sharing regards the strategy of working professionals. Am struggling with the time management. 

Hi.. Here's the link for the telegram group if you so wish to join...

See you soon 🙂

Hello,
I am working as an officer in a financial CPSE. I leave home everyday at 9 and get back at 7 in the evening. By that time, I have absolutely no energy left for any sort of focused, disciplined study for a good few hours. I try to study on the weekends but it is simply not enough. I attempted prelims this year after finishing the basic books like Laxmikanth, Spectrum etc. and all current affairs compilations for the past year but found it really difficult and crashed miserably in the exam hall. This has contributed to an already low morale and I am feeling completely lost and confused now.
If anyone here could mentor me or suggest a viable plan for regular study I would be really grateful, especially for the Current Affairs part, as I simply do not have the time to make a detailed study and self notes of the daily newspaper everyday.
Regards,
Vidisha

Hi vidisha... We have created a telegram group for  group studies as we all are sailing on the same boat. I you wish to join us, here's the link...

See you soon 🙂

I work from 12:30pm-8:30pm 5 days a week.
Right now it's work from home so I don't have to travel.
I haven't done my optional.
I am covering it on daily basis but can't balance b/w GS, optional, answer writing and revision.
2021 will be my second (first serious) attempt.

Struggling with time management. Pls help.

Hi dear VIDISHA , 
Hope u are doing good ,dont worry if not this attempt u will do it for sure dear, don't let urself down ,  always stay positive .
U are really capable and u can do it .
Will guide u , really wishes for u as u are being passionate. 
so coming to ur queries my valuable suggestion is,
As u had already done last one year CA  , just read those again now revise it again and again till next prelims, don't leave the touch u have on it , also do the daily CA  from insights for one hour along with CA quiz solving,so after ur work got over,utilize ur one hour time as per ur convenient for daily CA ,then go to bed , coming to other prep part use ur morning time from 5 to 8(use this three hours wisely ) for ur studies , if u need to complete ur optional , from now on till jan end use that mrng time to complete optional , coming to ur revision part ,hope u will get some free time in between ur work hours , use that for revision ,as I told u for last one year CA , which u done for this pre2020 . 
see, dear pre is all about applying knowledge from what u had studied, UPSC wont ask direct questions , instead u should apply ur knowledge and bring the answer , what we call as INTELLIGENCE GUESSING , its very easy dear.
As u said u will very tired after ur work , I understand , but u can use one hour for daily CA after that , it wont be the big challenge for u I hope. have atleast 7 or 8 hrs sleep must ,try to sleep 9 pm or 9.30pm , as u need to wake up at 5 am.
keep all this in mind , u can do it vidisha , if u need more guidance post ur queries , all the best , ur will inspire others for sure by becoming IAS , stay positive. MEET U IN LBSNAA

PS- take Sunday full rest , to refuel urself
REGARDS

Hello,
I am a working professional and I hail from a remote Island of Andaman. 
I would like to get information on how to plan my studies. I try to utilize maximum time in my studies but I still fail to achieve my target for the week/month. The syllabus gets me feeling overwhelmed and I'm unable to cope with it.
Another problem that I face is my studies are random and jumbled. I dont know how to organize the subjects and content on a weekly/monthly basis  so that my studies are connected and makes some sense. For eg: I'd be studying a subject this month and another the next month (static) and no time is left for me to prepare current affairs or practice answer writing or taking tests. And if I try to study CA too along with the static subject it gets jumbled up in my mind and I'm unable to achieve my target of covering the static portion.

I've been looking everywhere to find one person who could be my mentor or guide me right in my journey. Its very difficult to move ahead on this journey with little no guidance. So please help me out here. I'll be grateful.
