Here are Some Most Common Reasons of Failure in UPSC Exams

Candidates who are going to appear UPSC exam need to manage time in the exam very well because this exam is not mere a knowledge test but time test also. In Preliminary exam, all you have to do is use the “Discriminatory” method while selecting one correct (most appropriate one) answer from the different options. There may be two or more correct answer but you need to choose the most suitable answer. This is not like the school or college exam. The main purpose of this Prelims exam is to eliminate huge number of candidates to choose only the best who can serve the country using their skills, knowledge, judgement, etc. Do not waste your time in answering tough questions, go for easy questions first and then the tougher ones.

When a student enrolls himself in a coaching inst (let say in the months of AUGUST ) he starts his day by going to classes after taking one class came back to home after having lunch he sleeps for 2-3 hours and againg go to another class and after getting 3 hours class came back to home and takes dinner and then go to bed. Where is the time for self study, analysis and newspaper reading. Next day the same routine.

Most candidates are fresh graduates who fill-up the UPSC Civil Services Exam form just to show-off. It is being a status symbol now-a-days. Most of us want to become an IAS officer because we dream of it. Many people after applying for UPSC exam dream that they are already become an IAS Officer. UPSC Civil Services Examination is quite different from the college exam. In college exam, you need to write the right answer but in UPSC exam, you need to write/choose the most suitable answer using your analytical skills.

many candidates try to solve question papers first to know what level of knowledge they have. This is wrong approach. You are going to do this in actual exam so what is the point in knowing what you know about the subject without learning and mastering it first? After trying the papers themselves without studying first, some people get discouraged and depressed to find they do not know anything. You should learn everything about it and master your subject and then test yourself.
