Nothing encapsulates the importance of answer writing practice for UPSC than this quote. The tons of books that you have read, the loads of ideas that you have in mind and the numerous debates that you have won matter little if you haven’t held your pen for practice for at least 500 hours before the real Mains examination. When you practice answer writing, you tend to recreate what you are going to write in the real exam but in a less stressful setting. With hours of practice, you develop a habit – a kind of muscle memory that helps immensely in the real exam. In fact, with hours of practice in your preparation kitty, the real exam feels like another day of practice. We hope you must have understood the true essence of the quote in the context of UPSC.
Now, let’s come to an important question – what makes a perfect practice for UPSC? Well, the answer is simple. You must practice questions that are either similar or at least a notch above than the UPSC standard. Then you must learn from your mistakes. But, how do you learn? You learn from high quality source of information. You also learn from expert feedback. You definitely learn from you peers.
If there is any program that packs all these prerequisites of perfect practice into one, it is the
Think, Learn and Perform (TLP)
