Most of you should have been learning for almost a year. The D-day is tomorrow. What should you do today?
First and foremost, make sure you have your admit card, instructions, identity card, and black-coloured ball pens ready!
If you are all set, keep reading.
Self-confidence is the key; not knowledge!
In the exam hall what matters most is your calmness, composure, smart-thinking, and sharpness of mind. Knowledge is important, but that is only secondary.
Whatever knowledge you have acquired, if you over-stress and panic at the exam hall, you are likely to make mistakes. That may even cost you a year.
So it’s time to relax and believe in yourself.

Sir do we have to take the printout of the instructions as well to the exam centre?
@ Ashutosh – It would be great if you take a print out instructions as well. But it is rarely asked to be shown in the UPSC exam halls. But admit card, and ID card is a must.
Yogish b says
Not required but go through instructions once…
