MOTIVATION: UPSC Prelims Results, 2017 – Get Over It!


With the result of CSE preliminary examination just been announced, the possibilities are only three:

  1. You didn’t appear in Prelims this year and that’s why it doesn’t bother you
  2. You appeared in Prelims but could’t clear
  3. You appeared in Prelims and qualified for the next stage

In whichever category you fall in, please remember one thing: YOU MUST GET OVER IT NOW!!!!

Yes! Success and failure both don’t matter at this stage. They only offer you a platform. Success means a platform to prepare for Mains this year, failure means a platform to prepare once again. That’s it! Detach yourself emotionally from the result. Believe us it is for your good. To know how, please

Who have advanced to next stage- MAINS 


Congratulations!! Your efforts have resulted in your success. And if you are one of our ILP students, then accept our greetings for letting us play a role in your success. You need to up the ante now and move forward with more energy and determination. Complacency at this stage will only jeopardise your chances. You have tasted success and now it is time to plan for the final embrace of success that will last forever and will be far more sweeter. Remember one thing- you have left behind thousands of competitors to enter the next stage. Don’t let go this opportunity. Make full use of it.

You must concentrate on the following three aspects of your preparation now:

  1. Shift your focus to answer writing now. Practice answer writing at least 2 hours a day. For supporting you on this front, we have two initiatives: TLP Online (Free and open to all) and TLP Offline (Offline Test Series in Bangalore Centre).
  1. Focus on current affairs of the last 12 months Daily News Analysis or Monthly Magazine, RSTV Analysis, AIR, Yojana / Kurkushetra )

 If you have to appear for Prelims once again?


First of all remove the feeling from your heart, mind and soul that you have failed. You tried your best but couldn’t advance to the next stage. That is it! Nothing else. In this marathon called CSE, initial setbacks are better than the heartbreaking blows of the last stage. Please get over it and start afresh. Every day of your life is the first day of rest of your life. It is upto you to make a positive start and think about the future that awaits you. Action and not tears will help you.

But before you start, think about the reasons behind your performance in CSP. Most probably, you will find yourself in one the following categories:

  1. You were not even serious about this attempt and just wanted to have a feel of it.
  2. It was your first attempt and you also prepared hard.
  3. You prepared really well but last minute emergency or illness didn’t let you perform well.
  4. Last year you qualified for interview but this year could’t even clear Prelims.
  5. It was your last attempt and you have to explore other opportunities.

In all the categories mentioned here, the fact remains the same: you have to start once again and that too with full vigour and energy. Don’t think too much about it. What was to happen has already happened and you need to move ahead.

At this point, focus on the following:

  1. Take at least 5 days to analyse the areas where you went wrong.
  2. Try to improve in the areas where you couldn’t score much.
  3. Prepare a micro plan and follow that religiously.
  4. Don’t put your Mains preparation on hold. Keep practicing answers and prepare for Prelims simultaneously.
  5. Test yourself on regular basis and keep doing the course correction on a regular basis.

We are sure, you would make it to the next stage without any hiccup next year.
