Civil services are no bed of roses. Thus the UPSC takes full care in recruitment of the officers that’ll manage the steel frame of the country. There job is to fit the Right man into the Right job and they are experts in doing it. There are a few qualities that are being looked for in the candidate during selection process. This is the reason why the success rate is so low in this exam. Lakhs of students compete every year for getting into prestigious civil services, but only about less than a thousand make it.
In order to be successful, a candidate firstly has to make a right concept in mind about this exam. Success is not very far if preparation is done on a regular basis. Structurally preparing for every stage brings the candidate to some milestone in the first attempt itself (or even may go through). Provided that the new pattern of the IAS exam is likely to give importance to younger candidates with sharp and agile mind and dedication as the aptitude factor is the sole criteria now to judge candidates in the prelims exam.
Consulting any senior and successful candidate, Reading the toppers testimonials and going through previous IAS exam papers is always helpful for developing the right concept. It’s not necessary to cover the entire syllabus in the exam, because the expectations of UPSC are not possible to overcome in real sense. But candidate needs to analyze his strengths and then to focus upon them to facilitate his success in this exam rather than trying to prepare everything.
