  • Govt Schemes
  • Index, reports, and ranking
  • Important locations on the map
  • History timeline and important events
  • Acts passed in last year
  • National and international organizations, bodies and groupings
  • Economic Survey – especially patterns depicted in graphs
Things to remember
  • Revision is the key.
  • Make sure you have short notes for last revision otherwise in spite of reading a lot, you will not get the confidence
  • Make feasible targets
  • Daily target completion is your sole aimGive small gaps in between to rest your mind
  • The test is just a learning process. Don’t get disheartened if you are scoring low. Study even more.
  • Unnecessary talking with friends about the exam is wasting your crucial time. Try to limit it.
  • Too many books for the single subject are not needed just revision can work here.
Do not ignore
  • Health – Food, Water, and Sleep
  • Previous Year Papers.
  • The subject which is not asked in the last few years (Geography for example). UPSC question paper is unpredictable.
  • The topics where you are weak.
  • Consolidation of everything that you have read
Subject wise strategy
  • Your two subjects must be finished in 10 days.
  • You still have to plan at least 3 revisions of each subject. Once 10 days revision is done, next 2 revisions should be done in 5 days and 3 days pattern.
  • Try to cover current affairs and the static part of the subject simultaneously.
  • 2 subjects if you are choosing to revise together, make sure one is easier for you and other is a bit tougher. This way balanced study can be done.
