For UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Exam, there are two papers:- Paper I and Paper II of 400 marks. Paper II Is a qualifying paper. A student must get 33% in this paper as prescribed by UPSC.

The syllabus is General Studies. The details of the syllabus are available in the notification.

You must prepare topics from Indian history, geography, Indian constitution, reading comprehension, Indian heritage, ethics etc.

Tip 1. Read the syllabus.

It is often noticed that candidates expect all the entrance exams bearing the same syllabus to be somewhat similar to each other. However, it may not be the case. Read the syllabus carefully as the syllabus topics may be same but their mark distribution may not be the as the others. For instance if a test assigns 35 questions from quantitative aptitude, the others might only ask 15 questions from quants topic. In such cases it will be inappropriate to stress or emphasize on one topic for longer durations. Therefore read the syllabus.

Tip 2. Happy to make your acquaintance.

It is better to practice a test or mock test as per the test timing. For instance if the exam is conducted between 10:30 to 2:30. Then take a test during that time so that you will get acquainted with the atmosphere of that duration and time.

Tip 3. It makes sense.

Your practice will only make sense if you are able to express it in words on the exam day. Sometimes we practice our subjects three to four months earlier and by the time our exams draw near we tend to forget all we have learned. The more practice the more solutions. However it is necessary to find right solutions that will save your irreducible amount of time.

Tip 4. Reading the margins.

As many books you read, it will not be a problem as long as you have understood them all. Mark a note on every page with important points written on the top of the page or stick a color note. This will help you the sifting through each page. Use different colors for each chapter and spare them on the edge of the book.

Tip 5. Lost and Found

Students have been often seen using spare papers to note down their points and often misplace them when not kept in place.

Use only two notebooks at the most. One for practice and one for finalising your formulas.

Divide the sections of the notebook. If your spare paper do have some important points, you can either staple them or paste them in one place.
