The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is India’s premier central recruiting agency. It is responsible for appointment and examination for all India services and Group A & B of central services. Which every year conducts a competitive exam for Civil Services under which aspirants get various services like IAS, IFS, IPS, IRS… etc.
UPSC Prelims is one of the toughest and competitive level of Civil services Examination (CSE). Which is based on two papers; General Studies (Paper I) & CSAT (Paper II). The level holds objective Multiple-choice questions (MCQ’s). Noted that the Paper II (CSAT) is qualifying in nature. UPSC conducts both these paper on a same day keeping a difference of couple of hours between both the papers.
UPSC releases the notifications, nearly in the month of January every year and the exam have a probability to be conducted between the month of May or June (UPSC Prelims 2019 on 02/06/2019), and UPSC Prelims 2020 to conducted on 31/05/2020).
Aspirants who make it to UPSC Prelims go to the next level of the examination which is UPSC Mains (Written Test) and further to UPSC Interview (Personality Test.)
The Prelims exam preparation demands a deep knowledge of UPSC/ IAS syllabus, an objective approach for the syllabus and a judicious practice of MCQ’s. Completing syllabus is not enough for the exam, you need to revise the syllabus at least once. This revision helps in retention. Most of the students committee this same mistake of not revising the syllabus. EDEN IAS MISSION PRELIMS 2020 is a 60 days course which helps to cover the whole syllabus in form of revision and 50 days classes to cover current affairs of almost two years along with the static syllabus. Along with the revision it covers Daily sectional tests and Mock tests for Prelims 2020. It holds a strong result of MISSION PRELIMS 2019, (46 out of 112 students) selected in UPSC Prelims 2019.
UPSC Prelims 2019 as compared to UPSC Prelims 2018 had a different approach and preciously we can conclude that it was more inclined towards static part of the syllabus with a good blend of current affairs, besides UPSC Prelims 2018 holds a good weightage of current affairs. So, we expect many twists and turns in UPSC Prelims 2020. There should be equal focus on both current affairs and static syllabus.
Every aspirant should set their priorities while revising the syllabus. Most of the aspirants cover only those areas what they find easy or interesting according to them.
No matter what, cover the whole UPSC Syllabus because you can be a bit choosy in Mains but you need to study in depth for UPSC Prelims exam.
All the best!!
