Those who are yet to make it…
We can understand your emotions and pain completely. Almost all candidates who wrote Mains are equally brilliant, however, not everyone cannot get through.
Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. – Thomas Edison
Those who didn’t make it to the personality test, never confuse a single defeat with the final defeat. We know it’s tough to stay inspired for long, particularly after setbacks. But one failure is not the end of life.
You just need a few more marks!
UPSC vacancies are limited (only 780 this year), and the competition is really high. A few marks here and there should have made all the difference.
You need to master new skills and techniques!
It is at this stage, that you should realize that just like knowledge, techniques, skills, and strategies are equally important in Prelims and Mains.
Just have a re-look at UPSC Prelims 2018 and Mains 2018 question papers. You would realize one major thing. The priority of UPSC is different. Also, the UPSC requirements are changing.
Understand the changing UPSC requirements
For example, UPSC has not asked too many questions from the last 1-year current affairs. Rather they went beyond and asked questions that span the last 2-5 years. Those who used the short-cut method to study only the last 365 days of current affairs (from the so-called current affairs PDFs or magazines) might have missed this changing trend.
ClearIAS had alerted our readers, much before Prelims 2018, about this changing trend. It happened in Prelims 2018. It was repeated in Mains 2018 as well.
So, what we are trying to say, is to know the changing requirements of UPSC and prepare accordingly. Follow ClearIAS guidance and strategies to know our approach.
Get back to your studies!
You may need only a few marks extra to clear Prelims and Mains. Get back to your studies as soon as possible.
Adopt ClearIAS Test-based approach
What you should do now is join the ClearIAS test-based approach for Prelims 2019. Integrate learning with test-taking. Start taking mock exams.
It’s the time to concentrate more on Prelims
As you have only about 5 months before the next Prelims, concentrate more on Prelims. Clear UPSC Prelims 2019 with flying colours and write Mains 2019 with full confidence. You will clear IAS!
