IAS - Tamil Nadu Cadre
This success came in 2nd attempt. In the 1st attempt, could not clear Preliminary Examination. But, this was good learning experience to zero-in on where I faltered in the first and changed strategy accordingly for this attempt.
I could manage time for both prelims and mains preparation as I was preparing for the exam alone.
During the exam, found shortage of time in the General Studies paper as the paper this time was lengthy in he mains but completed the pare fully for the optional. Writing practice helped me in time management for the mains
It is hard work, dedication and confidence.

Talking of Prelims, it requires wider knowledge – an extensive study.
The approach towards mains is totally different from that of Prelims. But for that of mains it requires a wider knowledge with some intensive study.
Almost equal time to both with extra weightage to general studies as it is wider in coverage.
There was no special preparation for essay as such. But General Studies preparation helped me in concept building and presenting my essay paper better. Newspaper reading was of immense help.
Prepared my self with the current affairs, my mains optional subjects, my degree back ground and profile based questions. Faced Rajini Razdan Madam’s board and went on for about 20-25 minutes.
The whole affair was spontaneous and many questions were rooted on answers given. The questions were from current affairs, law, RTI, Lokpal bill etc and a few situational questions.
