7 Tips to Score High in the UPSC Civil Services Examination
Now, you may go through our advice listed out as 7 tips.
We hope this guidance-post to is equally helpful for everyone who is confused – beginners or veterans.
#Tip 1: Learn the requirements of the UPSC Civil Services Exam!
No. You don’t need to know everything under the Sun to clear this exam.
That’s the first thing to get into your head.
There is a prescribed syllabus by UPSC for the three stages of this 1-year long exam, ie Prelims, Mains and Interview.
A good understanding of the UPSC syllabus and exam pattern is the first step for all freshers.
Also, understand the Eligibility criteria for writing the UPSC CSE exam.
If you still have questions in your mind, just go through our article ‘frequently asked questions on IAS exam preparation‘.
#Tip 2: Buy some essential books to get the stone rolling!
Everyone will agree that without investing in some books, one cannot clear the IAS exam. This is particularly important for aspirants who solely depend on self-study.
The syllabus is vast, the aspirant should develop the habit of reading.
A list of essential books for IAS preparation is compiled on this website, taking inputs from many toppers.
To start with, we recommend buying some useful books (like Indian Polity by Laxmikanth) in addition to all the NCERT books.
Links are also provided to buy online at discounted prices.
Order a few basic books on the list today itself, so that you will feel that you are into it. Also, make newspaper reading a habit.
#Tip 3: Read ClearIAS online study materials (FREE)
You might have heard this saying that there is no free lunch.
However, with ClearIAS, there is such a thing as a free lunch.
Yes, we are mentioning the free online study materials from ClearIAS.
We publish study materials for every subject in the UPSC CSE syllabus for Prelims and Mains like History, Geography, Economics, Polity, Current Affairs etc and ensure that the contents help in quick learning.
We write articles regularly on many topics – basically on those which aspirants find it tough to find the right materials.
Our readers are free to print the online materials in PDF form or even in paper form, except for commercial circulation.
If you wish to extend your exam preparation from laptop to mobile and tablets, download for free the Clear IAS mobile app which has been receiving a huge response from our users. The app received top ratings, mostly 5 stars and crossed 9,00,000+ downloads in the Google Play store.
#Tip 4: Get the right guidance; follow ClearIAS articles on UPSC Civil Services Exam Guidance
Requirements for each stage of the UPSC exam, ie Prelims, Mains and Interview are different. But there are many things in common too.
Hence, ClearIAS.com throughout this website follows Prelims-cum-Mains Integrated approach, which is a fast and smooth approach to clear IAS.
You may read our guidance articles for Prelims, Mains, and Interviews.
Always get inspiration and the right guidance from the topper’s interviews published on the website.
#Tip 5: Join ClearIAS mock test series: practice, learn, and revise!
You can learn and compete with thousands of aspirants across India by attempting our full-length timed online mock test series with negative marking for UPSC Prelims.
Always keep in touch with UPSC’s previous year’s question papers so that you won’t read wild things, and stay focused.
#Tip 6: Stay away from low-quality IAS Coaching Centers!
We are not against any classroom IAS Coaching centres.
There are many good, reputed centres. But at the same time, there are many others which don’t provide any service even after charging lakhs of rupees as fees from the candidates.
The ‘bad guys’ often misguide advertisements and outdated notes.
Understand that the very need of attending a coaching institute, if any, is for the right guidance, and not knowledge.
In this online age, knowledge is available with a mouse click.
If you are misguided in this highly competitive exam, you are ruined!
Reduce your dependency on spoon-feeding by coaching institutes and start building your analytical abilities.
To get the right UPSC exam guidance, refer to the unedited interviews by toppers on websites like ClearIAS.com.
#Tip 7: Stop worrying too much; just do it!
Well, why don’t do get your feet wet?
You have nothing to lose.
You will be a totally different person, well aware of our nation and things around you once you step in.
Don’t worry about your age, financial background, lack of time or any other usual excuses.
You are never late. Get involved.
Just jump in and do it!
Understand that a journey of thousand miles starts with a single step.

Before applying or planning for Civil services, one should understand why this exam is conducted?
why out of 4 lacks aspirants only 12000 called for mains exam and out of 12000 only 900 called for interview? these are the basic question one should think.
Guys, UPSC is not selecting a student from IIT, MEDICAL or many more background but selecting only ordinary people who could think differently and having potential to change the variation of the people in the country.
fell free to contact me 9205012212. will suggest you more…

Hello sir/ mam

The minimum age to appear for IAS Exam is 21 years. This means that the candidate must have at-least 21 years of age on 1st August of that given year when the exam is held. For example, if the candidate is appearing for 2015 prelims on Aug, he/she should be above 21 years of age by Aug 1, 2015. Hope it is clear. All the best!
