The article has brought out the strategy of covering the preparation for this coveted exam in one month. With all points followed, it is possible to do that within such a small period but my experience and knowledge in the matters tell that one has to start preparing for these exams right from the school level. Why I am for that approach is that these exams are highly competitive and even a small difference in the score of the candidate is going to take him out of the preliminary list. So, getting the super score and remaining in the top 15-20% is the level of performance that is required today in these exams.

Once a mindset in that direction is made the student will start seeing the type of questions asked in these competitive exams and with that type of approach his chances of covering a greater part of the syllabus increase significantly. Another interesting thing is that by doing that the student will not only be preparing for the particular exam but will be covering the syllabus for all other similar ones including the national level IAS exam.

Those students who have missed preparing for these exams since such an early time might have to be contented with the little time in hand and then have no other go except to follow the hectic schedule as advised in this article. The intelligent students can learn much in less time also and should consider the one month option also as a viable method to crack this prestigious exam.

The aspirant must have ambition and he should have his own passion to qualify for this examination. The author has outlined how the same can be prepared within a very limited time but the aspirant should make the best use of it. His advice would curtail the time of preparation no doubt, but drawing upon the plan long earlier, say before three years, may provide the aspirant enough time to go into the details about the various factors including the revision of his NCERT books which will strengthen his basics. He would go through the question papers of the past eight years and would make every attempt to solve those questions independently. Let the same be reviewed by the subject experts of the prominent institutions. The aspirant would do well with his appearance for the several mock tests to evaluate his own performance in the subjects included in the test. Preparation well ahead of time is the panacea to success.

A good write up and the aspirant could extract benefits with a better follow up.

However, it could be the best effort for the practising candidate to take up planning much ahead of time with the sole objective of clearing the said examination with impressive scores. The aspirant should go through the NCERT textbooks thoroughly to eliminate any doubt and strengthen his basics. All relevant points need to be incorporated in a separate diary for revision purposes.
