Find the real reason as to why you want to be an IAS officer. Money, respect and power are all you can dream of in your life. Imagine your life as an IAS officer, yearn for that VIP car and the government bungalow you can get then only you’ll be able to put in that amount of hard work to top the list of results. Or do it for making your parents proud, that will take you to another level of determination and you’ll find yourself working harder. Or if you are enough of a philanthropist just do it for the people. A real good reason will serve as the stimulant for more hard work.

Besides preparing for the current affairs you need to study subjects ranging from Mathematics to History and Politics. So go for the extensive study of all the subjects. Pick the NCERT books of 10th to 12th level and revise. Do not start solving question papers from the beginning as it lowers your confidence. Give your studies enough time and yourself enough chance to turn your dream into reality.
