Default IAS/Civil Service Aspirants

Hi all,

I would like to know whether there are any Civil Service aspirants aboard. I have cleared the Civil Services prelims exam this time (more by luck than by preps), Planning to give the Mains this time and see how it goes and then decide on investing all my time on to this (preps for next year)

If there are any experienced hands out there, please help with your advice/stories

I wouldn't call myself experienced, since its my first time too and I am going almost completely solo with my preparation. But unlike you, I actually prepared a lot for the prelims, though it turned out to be gross over preparation.

And I am actually hoping to get through this time itself. Though it is a bit of a long shot as I started preparation in January of this year only. If I get through this year, great. If not will definitely try once more next year, and I am pretty confident of getting through next time around.

Hi Singleton,
First of all, Congrats for clearing the prelims and all the very best for the mains. I'm 26 now and yet to give my first attempt. So, I'm not eligible to call myself as an UPSC Aspirant. But I've dedicated some quality time in preparation and failed to give attempts because of other commitments in the past. Now I'm very much determined to put full efforts for UPSC 2012.
I'm also going completely solo without any assistance from coaching centres. I'm very happy to see a thread related to UPSC in Team-bhp. My sincere wish for this thread is to grow for hundreds of pages and serve as a knowledge sharing base for UPSC aspirants within T-Bhp(and non members too).After spending 5 years in T-BHP,I have a strong belief that all the threads here contains genuine inputs and this thread will be no exception.

@Julupani,
All the best for you too mate.

@Both,
Could you guys please share some knowledge on how you started preparation and what basic materials you guys are using. I usually rely on the online materials from UPSC Exam, IAS Results, Civil Services Exam by UPSC, UPSC Results, IAS Exam 2011 Syllabus, IAS Coaching Centers in India, Books For Upsc IAS Exam, IAS Syllabus, UPSC Exam Paper, Upsc Exam Schedule, Upsc Study Material, Indian Civil Service Exam, IAS

Looks like there aren't many Civil Services Aspirants on Team-BHP considering the state of this thread

Just wanted to know some good websites/sources which will help in preparation in terms of articles, study materials etc?

Any tips/suggestions/guide for the preparation of this exam?

I think that mrunal.org is a good site to refer to.

I am yet to start my preparation, but i generally refer to this website for some casual reading, it has some really good articles.

Hi,

I just came across this thread and I find it useful to get together to prepare jointly with inputs from all members, who are thinking of this competitive exam. I am looking at 2015 attempt and one of the constraints that I observe would be limited or lack of online support options. Mrinal.org seems to be choice bit I see that it has a government jobs focus rather than a single CSE perspective.

I have public administration as the optional. Anyone, who has similar option? I would like to collaborate.

Thanks

Himanshu
