Are you an UPSC Aspirant? Know about preparation strategy, Eligibility criteria

UNION PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION (UPSC), a central government organization authorized to conducts various examinations every year for civil services, engineering services, defense, and many others across the country. The organization was set up on October 1, 1926, and controlled by the government of India.

Strategy of preparation for UPSC :

The general studies portion is always considered to crack this exam. The preparation strategy for civil services is more important to prepare yourself. This is due to a lack of understanding of the syllabus, and the pattern in which questions are asked in the exam. The best way of preparation is to first have a meticulous plan for handling GS with ease, both during the time of preparation and the exam.

There have two myths about this exam preparation:

  • The first myth which has to exist for years, especially after the change in pattern in 2013 is that there is no syllabus for General Studies. This statement is utterly false. UPSC is always looking for such aspirants, who are well-informed of all national and international events, institutions, and personalities so that they can hold significance for India.
  • The second myth about GS preparation is that reading basic books like NCERT is a wastage of time because generally questions are not asked from these. Studying NCERT books helps you to solve the questions directly, but to create a strong root for your preparation in GS.
