The UPSC Civil Services (Prelims) 2018 is all set to begin in about 150 days i.e. on June 03.

As we all know the fact that revision is significantly important before jumping to the next topics, revision must be given utmost importance in the process of preparation.

It’s time for students to get a good hold on the topics they have studied.

Here are few revision tips that can indeed help students notch up success in the examination:

1.    Revise at least twice before exam:

Map out your studies in a way so that adequate time is left for revision. It is equally important that no topic should be skipped while revising. Revise everything.

2.    Basics have to be strong:

Having a strong command over the basics is better than just knowing the entire subject. Numerous questions are asked from subjects like current affairs, Indian history, Geography, Indian Polity, Ecology, Biodiversity and Environment, hence they should be prepared in detail.

Candidates tend to ignore prelims because the questions are objective in nature, but the questions are tricky and each question aims to check the knowledge of students in depth, and therefore, equal importance has to be given to the preliminary examination.

3.    Solve mock test papers:

Solving previous years’ question papers zeroes out chances of errors in the examination and increases accuracy and speed. It provides the opportunity to get the hang of time management and have a clear idea of the paper. Accordingly, you can decide which section has to be attempted first.

4.    Prepare notes:

Notes help to revise concepts quickly when a candidate wrestles with time; so, it is advisable to prepare notes especially on topics which are tough for you. Making notes help you remember things in a better way.

5.    Get familiarise with syllabus:

Getting well attuned to the syllabus is the first step to set about systematic preparation. It provides the right direction to your preparation and helps you stave off covering irrelevant topics.

6.    Selection of books:

Most of the candidates get perplexed referring to countless books available in the market. Make your basics strong with NCERT books and count on standard book to farther go through relevant topics.

7.    Strategise:

General studies paper covers everything. It can be categorised as:

  • Geography: Focus on physical geography and maps. Atlas is the best guide to help you with these topics
  • General awareness: This embraces government schemes etc. Reading newspapers and guidebooks will help you a great deal
  • History: Emphasise on Modern history, Freedom movement, Ancient India etc. A standard history guide covers all these topics
  • Current Affairs: Going through at least two standard newspapers (one English and the other, a vernacular) will keep you abreast of the current events
  • CSAT: It covers a vast portion. Comprehension, logical reasoning, basic numeracy are to be prepared from standard book

8.    New topic:

Don’t read any new topic prior to the examination.

9.    Proper sleep:

All the students should note that sleep deprivation will take you nowhere; so, sleep well on the eve of the examination and don’t go through any book.

10.    Confidence:

Note that confidence is the key to success in any examination so be high on confidence and do not panic during examination.
