Check the UPSC Notifications
It should be noted that, the candidate has to give importance to the notifications issued by the UPSC on various aspects of the exam like UPSC Syllabus (Prelims Exam & Mains Exam). The ideal way to remember the syllabus would be to keep a printed copy of it besides one’s desk for quick reference.
Know the important exam dates
The candidates have to remember the important exam dates beforehand which would help them to tweak their timetables as per the exam demands. The advantage of this would be that the candidates could prioritize on subjects of prime importance and so on.
Understand the Syllabus Well
It would be really worthwhile if the candidate has a clear and precise idea on the contents of the UPSC exam syllabus as it covers each and every subject at both the prelims and mains level
Create a structured and simple time table
A candidate has to have a clear idea about the syllabus and craft a time table accordingly viz. to create a sophisticated as well as simple time table which implies that it should contain every subject and easy to apply. It should be noted that due care should be taken to not make the time table not too tedious and not too simple and remember balance is the key here.
Work with sample question Papers
To clear the civil services exam, the easiest and fastest way would be to work with sample question papers from previous years as they are nothing short of a duplicate of the UPSC question papers. The sample question papers would give a glance of the question pattern followed by the UPSC and provide an idea about it to the candidates on how they should prepare for the exam.
