    Optional Subjects

    All optional subjects are equally good and scoring. One should always chose his/her graduation subject as one of the optional subjects.
    Prelims: Medical Science
    Mains: Medical Science and Psychology
    I chose them because Medical Science was my graduation subject and psychology was related to it and seemed interesting.


    Success Plan

    This was my first attempt.

    Civil Services Examination was my own wish, and I took this decision during my internship after completing the final year exams of MBBS. Yes, I did keep in mind a set time frame for studying different subjects, but I did not think much about the number of attempts, rather focused on the present attempt.

    I guess there is no specific “secret” of success. One should study smartly and do hard work.

    'Time Management'
    Yes, time management is very important, and like everyone I also came across this problem. During preparation,I managed things by deciding to allocate a fixed time to each part of syllabus according to the weightage given to it in the question papers of previous years.


    Prelims

    During prelims I focused on GS, as m optional was my graduation subject and I had prepared it earlier for my university exams.


    Mains

    I spotted the areas of General Studies where I can score and prepared these well.
    I had in mind the importance of Optional Subjects so, accordingly, I devoted more time to my optional subjects.

    Essay

    For essay paper preparation, I tried reading the editorials of national newspapers and some magazines.
    I chose the topic “Preparedness of Indian Society for emerging India’s global role”, because I had read similar articles earlier during my preparation and was well-versed with the topic.


    Interview

    For interview, I prepared my bio-data and some questions related to my graduation background and optional subjects and current affairs. I faced Dr KK Paul’s board.


    What is your opinion regarding the general view that Science subjects have better chance to score than Humanities?
    Ans. My view is that all subjects have an equal opportunity of scoring well, as is proved by the subject-wise results of the previous years.

    Interview Questions

    The questions asked were related to my hobbies, medical science background and current affairs news etc.

    Advice

    Do not read a lot of books, rather read a few basic books a lot of times. Focus on scoring areas like statistics, economics, history and polity in GS.
    Work hard in optional subjects as they are very scoring.
