1- Try to wake up early in morning between 4:15 to 4:30 AM and starts your study from 4:30 to 6:00 AM. In this 1:30 hr. focus on yours Optional Subjects. Because it carries 500 marks out of 1750 marks. This single subject can change your destiny.
2-After continuous study of 1:30 hr. take a short break and again starts your study 7:15 to 9:15AM. In this time read news papers very carefully best newspaper for UPSC preparation is The Hindu and Times of India you can follow both OR Only Indian express choice is yours.
In fact Indian Express is more better. But remember it, you have to cover all topics that is related to yours syllabus. Ok ?
3- After a continuous study of 2 hrs. take a break. Now take a long gap of 4:45 hrs. In this hour or time gap do your family work or if you are a student and preparing for UPSC alone then try to get some Part-time job (so that you can be free from family tension and if you have a source of income then you focus on your study) like teaching, blogging, and some other works to fresh your mood or take a nap.
4- Now starts your study at 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM. In this duration of 2 and 1/2 hr. you have to study yours GS subject like History (specially Modern and Medival) Geography (NCERT from class 6 to 12).
You have to cover only these 2 subjects very carefully and try to move slowly but constant.
5- After continuous study of 2 hr. 30 Min. take a gap up to 7:00 PM. You do some work in this free time that you may like or you can solve your previous years papers if you have an extraordinary capacity of study.
6-Now starts yours study at 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM . In this 2 hrs. of Study you have to study Polity, ethics , international relations. Because these are related to our country and politics, I think it makes your interest too. And in last 30 min. you have to study ecology as it is interesting.
7- After continuous study of 2 and 1/2 hr. your today study time ends here. Now take your meal and if you are not feeling sleepy then do work according to yours interest like you can make a call to your parents, some chatting, you tube videos etc…
But keep in mind you have to wake up early in morning at 4:15 AM.
Now you have a time table of 8 hr 30 Min. for your daily study. 8 hr 30 min of study is not more for UPSC aspirants. I have made this timetable by keeping in mind yours time management and proper gap after a study so that you will not get frustrated.
If you follow this time table daily then I am damn sure that you will crack UPSC in yours first attempt, point it – You can clear it in yours first attempt.
1- Always keep a copy of UPSC CSE SYLLABUS with you. All question asked in CSE examination is from SYLLABUS.
2- Practice to solve previous years paper 3 times in a month by proper timing. You can use yours Sunday time but don’t forget to read News Paper.
3-Always keep Yourself in Discipline because you can not be motivated all time.
4- Makes your self notes and Follow the time table daily.
5-Last one is – Limit your study material. It’s better to read a book 10 times than reading 10 different books.
Best of Luck!
