Advice from Akshat Jain :

Akshat decides to enter the civil service in the fourth year of his college. Akshat tells that I was also very worried that the exam is very difficult, how will I be able to do it, if not then what will happen But when I decided to take this exam, I never looked back. Akshat says that I never thought about what the result would be. I just thought that I just have to give my best, I will not worry about what is not in my hands.With this resolve, I started preparing for my exam.

- Akshat says that to clear any exam, you should have your own strategy. Working hard without strategizing often fails.

- Akshat says that you should first look at the syllabus of the exam thoroughly and look at each of its words. 

- To clear any exam, you should analyze its previous papers thoroughly.

- You should not waste much time in reading newspapers.

Should we take coaching for this exam ?


It depends on you that how good you are in self study.I did not take any coaching for my general study.I only took coaching for my optional subject anthropology.

How to Self-Evaluate Answers :


• Compare your answers with model answers and toppers' answers.

• Look at each element of your answer - introduction, main body and conclusion - and find the areas of improvement. 

• Compare the way of presenting the answer - flow diagrams, schematics etc.

• Do not forget to appreciate your own answer.

• Try to incorporate what you learn in your next set of answers.
