Hello Friends,

Have you ever heard of the phrase, ‘Laakhon mein ek’, the Hindi version of ‘One in a million’. Well, it is most fitting for students who qualify the prelims exam of UPSC Civil Services. Mathematically, the odds of qualifying the exam are very low. And since the probability is so low, even the toppers are not sure whether they’ll be able to qualify the exam or not before they get a rank.

It is a known fact that only knowledge cannot help you in qualifying the exam. Amidst this uncertainty, it is natural to panic. Also, because of the extension due to lockdown, anxiousness has increased manifolds. However, there are many who have cracked the formula to qualify the exam, and again and again, they crack prelims even when their preparation doesn’t look that sound.

So from our experience and understanding of the exam, we have decided to share how common sense and basic understanding can improve your performance in the exam and help you get those 10 – 20 marks extra.
