At this point, it is nearly ingrained that the UPSC exam is unpredictable, and uncertain elements keep popping up year after year. But it has to be designed that way. Imagine a large pool of 6 to 10 lakh aspirants applying for the exam, with at least 2-3 lakh appearing for the prelims exam for just around 1,000 posts every year. It is inevitable to apply a funnel approach to filter out aspirants and select the best minds.

If blaming the unpredictability is for the general crowd, to an experienced mind, it is a conventional myth-making. The exam does seem bizarre at first, but it starts to make sense and feel more familiar as you look to the past. It requires thorough study, analysis, and practice to hone the necessary skills. Once the fundamentals and skills are garnered, you will be unstoppable.

We agree that the Prelims exam of late seems tricky. For instance, Prelims 2023 was tougher compared to Prelims 2024. In the sense that elimination was made easier in Prelims 2024. However, UPSC did introduce quite a few factual questions in Prelims 2024 to make it difficult for students.

Aspirants struggle the most to overcome this uncertain stage. But through our interactions with several thousand toppers and students, we have learned that clearing prelims is a skill that can be acquired and honed with deliberate and intense practice. No more blaming the unpredictability.

Instead, let’s focus on HOW TO CLEAR this stage. It is possible – several aspirants like you have done it. There is a common thread that binds most successful aspirants – SYSTEMATIC PRACTICE, the RIGHT GUIDANCE, HARD WORK & CONSISTENCY.

With years of experience guiding students and analyzing the prelims papers, we have realized that prelims hasn’t changed its essential flair. Certain subject areas from which questions have been asked year after year remain important since these are the emerging areas of significant interest to a budding bureaucrat. Our analysis says that around 40-45 questions come directly from the basic sources (NCERTs). The remaining questions are analytical and require on-the-spot thinking and the application of skills such as identification and elimination.

Instead of focusing on this dicey nature, we need to focus on preparing for the constants and ways to face the uncertainties.

Those aspirants who focused on the process, invested time in correcting their mistakes and fine-tuning their preparation are the ones who went on to clear the exam.

Merely joining any test series will not help you clear the exam.However, if used effectively, test series can significantly enhance your performance.

  1. You need to do self-study – a lot of it. You should start from basics. You should rely on your own intellect to improve your knowledge and ability. But you do need a direction and framework for this. This is where a test series can help you.
  2. Build strong conceptual clarity, which gives you confidence for both Prelims and Mains exam. A good test series will provide you with an opportunity to build your concepts by recommending you authentic sources and then checking your concepts from various angles.
  3. You need to be consistent. Remember, you need to prefer consistency over intensity. We have seen students who, in the end, buy all tests from multiple institutes and expect questions to come from these tests in the UPSC prelims. Sadly, you can’t expect UPSC to give questions from test series, and you end up failing the Prelims exam. But, a good test series, if followed regularly, will equip you to make fundamentals strong, build concepts, and improve your skill set.
  4. Your preparation must have discipline – discipline in studying standard sources, NCERTs, giving tests, analyzing your performance, learning from your mistakes, and implementing the changes.
  5. Understand the competition and focus on progress every single day. A good test series can help you compete with a large pool of aspirants. All India ranks will let you know where you stand in this tough competition.
  6. Solve a variety of questions – a mixture of factual and conceptual, tougher and easier, to test your preparation. A good test series will make this job easier for you.

Having missed the bus by miles as far as Prelims 2018 was concerned, I set myself a clear goal. To ensure I get just as much was needed to cross the threshold, no more, no less.

By May 2019, I had done multiple revisions of the standard books either on their own, or through a regular process of mock test review.
