Preparation for Preliminary and Mains – Separate or Integrated?
Civil services preparation is an integral process. Although Preliminary exam is objective and Mains examination is descriptive, one should adopt an integrated approach. Mains preparation requires thorough analysis of information, organizing and presenting information in a coherent and lucid manner. Handling Preliminary exam requires ability to recollect and the concepts of the subject are also tested. So, a candidate should keep these things in mind during the preparation. A candidate should also groom and develop his/her personality with balanced thinking inculcating and nurturing good moral values which will help him/her not only to score good marks in interview but to succeed in his/her career as a civil servant.
