     Preparation Tips

    The golden rule of civil service preparation is the habit of reading a newspaper, everyday, without fail. The best recommended one is The Hindu. This will provide one with the base that one needs to begin with the preparations.

    Secondly, do not restrict yourself to just the KAS or the KPSC. Aim to clear the UPSC with the highest marks/rank in Karnataka, so that you stand the best chance to get allotted the Karnataka cadre.

    Next, acquaint yourself with the pattern of the exam by reading the official notification. Choose an appropriate optional after carefully going through the syllabus of all the choices that you think are available to you.

    Buy the books that are necessary for the preparation. Yes, buy themAlso, download question papers of the concerned exams (Prelims+Mains) of every year, beginning with the year 2000 if not earlier (move from the latest to the earliest).

    The books to be referred are:

    • Geography
    • All NCERTs from Class 6 to 12 (Special focus on classes 10, 11 and 12)
    • Certificate of Physical and Human Geography by Goh Cheng Leong
    • An Atlas- preferably Orient Blackswan
    • Polity- Laxmikanth
    • Economy
    • 11th and 12th NCERT
    • Concepts of Indian Economy by Shankar Ganesh
    • Economic Survey of India- this is a very important document from an examination point of view
    • Videos by Mrunal Patel on youtube for both economic as well as the Economic survey and the budget
    • History (the following books should cover History optional also)
    • India’s Struggle for Independence by Bipin Chandra
    • India after Gandhi by Ramachandra Guha (There are people who prefer to buy Bipin Chandra only for this also, but i found Guha to be neutral)
    • India’s ancient past by R.S. Sharma
    • Medieval India by Satish Chandra
    • Modern World History by Norman Lowe and/or by L Mukherjee
    • NCERT from 6 to 12
    • Science and Tech and General Science: Be aware of what The Hindu is reporting, and go through the biology part of NCERT books from 8 to 10
    • Environment: International Protocols from the internet, India Year Book and selected chapters from Chemistry and Biology books of class 11 and 12 NCERT. Also refer to the website of the MoEFCC
    • Culture: the CCRT website is pretty good along with class 11 and 12 NCERTs

    These will give you a solid base which will be supplemented with your newspaper reading. You may also make notes from the newspaper. Follow websites like insightsonindia and mrunal

    Begin by making a timetable and following it strictly every day. You know yourself best so give yourself as much time as you think is necessary. It may vary from 2 to 12 hours. But make the timetable. Do this and you can easily manage your engineering studies along with preparations.

    Most importantly realise that this is a difficult exam and requires serious efforts. But, also believe you can clear it and back yourself to do it.

    P.S. these are UPSC civil services specific and will only aide you with KPSC also. But the KPSC will require Karnataka specific books also to supplement certain answers.
