    HOW TO PREPARE FOR CIVIL SERVICES


    PS: One interesting point you must note that with past statistics from the UPSC,
    there are many candidates normally apply for the prelims examination every year
    but out of which only 60%-70% are only actually appearing for the exam.
    So the good thing for you is that, automatically your competition is reduced.
    Also the question paper is set in both English and Hindi languages.
    But for this time there is an ambiguity since the pattern of the exam is changed.
    Whatsoever the sentiment will be the same. OK.

    Here one thing I would like to bring in to your knowledge that "You must possess
    the deep and argumentativeness knowledge over the subject (s) you have selected.

    The basic idea is to have a clear knowledge on the burning issues of India & World
    with subject knowledge.

    I can only suggest you to undergo for a holistic catapult coaching to build the Civil Services Standard
    knowledge from a reputed coaching centre of India. Normally they give an in house training for ONE
    YEAR, after that you will definitely have a total idea and confidence for appearing till INTERVIEW level.

    OK, Best of Luck.
