Many aspirants to clear IAS exam adopt many wrong approaches knowingly or unknowingly and fail in the UPSC Civil Services Exam. They basically make many mistakes in their preparation, particularly regarding the IAS mock exams before Prelims.

Here we take a look at few preparation strategy and reasons for failure:

Evaluate your performance: check the level of your preparation before UPSC CSE Preliminary Exam takes some quality mock exams. Also compare your own past performance and analyse the improvement.

Rectify your mistakes: some mistakes in your overall preparation which is pulling you down to rank in the top 10% candidates aim work harder for improvement as your target should be to score at least 90 marks out of 200 on an average to clear IAS mock exams.

Efficient platform and Lack of strategy to Clear IAS Mock Test: Aspirants should practice mock exams with a timed-environment along with negative marking and follow test series timetable to get an idea of uploaded and upcoming mock exams. Reading mock exams from Photostats or PDFs is not the right way for practicing.

 

Reasons for IAS Aspirants who fail to clear USPC Civil Services Exam:

 

Not following the multiple round answering techniques (3-2-1-0-E method): Solve UPSC question paper in 4 parts which based on the number of answer choices you are able to eliminate and use multiple rounds.

Less number of questions being attempted: keep an idea of cutoff score and don’t attempt only 50-60 number of questions, try to achieve high score preferably above 85, with good accuracy. Cutoff score can increase or decrease based on the difficulty level of the question paper and number of vacancies.

Lack of revision: due to lack of poor grip to the syllabus and even the current affairs questions revise periodically as it is not possible to remember almost a year for preparation.

Random guessing and carelessness: test yourself with free mock test exam and think before answering don’t lose marks for being careless and lazy or do random guess for negative marking .apply logic and common sense for wrong options.

Answer the question asked: Aspirants make common mistakes they don’t read question properly and end up answering wrong, ignoring what is really required for example: “Why have the resource rich African and South Asian countries remained poor for decades? Explain.”

Here, you don’t need to waste words and time on talking about comparing poverty figures of both regions, but start listing reasons for the poverty. Lack of time management and study plan: follow good time management techniques with proper strategy for the subjects and study material.

Attitude to give it all: civil services require dedicated preparation throughout so candidates should keep an attitude to repeat it once more even after the failure and prepare again and again. This is not for lethargic ones. Stay positive and eliminate your mistakes.

So remember UPSC Civil Services Exam is not a tough nut to crack if Aspirants follow proper guidance and strategies they can easily clear exams as thousands of students are able to cross the main bridge. All the Best!!!!!
