Most of us would have heard the saying “Blessing in disguise”. Due to the current coronavirus outbreak, almost everyone is at rest. Let’s use this time period to gain one or two lifetime hacks which will not only increase your learning ability but also put you ahead in the rat race.
The importance of learning cannot be underestimated. Learning empowers us to fulfill our ideas and realize our full potential. The speed of gaining new knowledge is practically as important as its volume. Who wouldn’t love to remember tons of information as quickly as possible? If you want to start learning faster, you need a new approach towards the process which would enable you to comprehend the essence of the matter and relate it with new concepts you encounter.
Based on various studies here are 6 steps to increase the learning ability:
First and foremost things is to create a conducive environment for studies. If you want to increase your efficiency then your need to have an uninterrupted session.
Switch off your mobile or put on it on Silent mode
Make a schedule and stick to it.
Without discipline, you won’t be able to achieve big things. When you follow the schedule, your subconscious mind is trained to act accordingly. Knowingly on knowingly it increases your efficiency
Try to mix audio, video, notes, etc while reading to make it interesting and long-lasting
When you make small notes on topics, your mind processes the read information and gives the summarized output. In this process your memory get hold of the concept and important data.
Similarly, when you use multiple modes, it reconciles
Take help of Mindmaps, mnemonics while memorizing important data
Such vast syllabus can’t be memorized in a solo manner. You have to use these to improve the efficiency
Study on a daily basis at the same time
Most of us get the nature call within minutes of waking up. How does the mind knows about it? Because we have been doing it every day at the same time from our child days. Similarly if you keep on doing the same thing at same time, mind is eventually trained to respond in desired manner at that time automatically, inturn increasing your efficiency
Have a little discussion on topics with like-minded people.
Remember your last fight with your love partner, don’t you? Yes. When you discuss things loud it sticks to mind. Then why don’t you use this while learning. Discuss those difficult topics with friends and let mind remember good things rather than storing pity “finger pointing”
If you are like many students, your time is limited so it is important to get the most educational value out of the time you have available. Speed of learning is not the only important factor, however. Students need to be able to accurately remember the information they learn, recall it at a later time, and utilize it effectively in a wide variety of situations.
We have been receiving 100s of queries about postponement of UPPSC Mains 2019, UPPSC Prelims 2020, RO 2016 Prelims etc.
We don’t have any official confirmation for any of these. Our assessment and information is based on current medical situation and authentic sources in concerned bodies.
UPPCS Mains 2019:
Current Exam Date: 20th April
Status:RED – Not Possible on current scheduled date.
Reason: Current lockdown is upto 14th April. Which in most likely scenario will be extended for atleast a month. Even if government relaxes norms and removes full lockdown on May 15th, then also arrangement for exam will take at least 15 days.
Next Possible Date: Best possible scenario is June/ July 2020
RO Prelims 2016 – This is scheduled on May 3rd. It will also be postponed as well. Most likely to be conducted in July 2020.
UPPSC Prelims 2020 – This is scheduled on June 21st.
Here 3 scenarios are possible:
If situation is contained by May end. Exam will happen on time ( 10% Chances )
Work resumes in June, Exam conducted in July, after PCS 2019 Mains ( 10% Chances )
Exam will be conducted in July last week or August first week, after PCS Mains 2019 & 2018 interviews are over. ( Most likely Scenario )
In most likely scenario age limit won’t be reduced. Few reasons to support that hypothesis:
Commission can’t take this decision alone. They have to get the approval from government. Right now government is facing too much heat on unemployment issue. They will not take risk of reducing age limit and depriving opportunity to this section, which is in significant proportion. For government it is easy to just maintain the status quo.
State election is due in 2022, any change which is implemented in coming years will have direct impact on voting pattern. Not even students their families will also vote against this decision
Age reduction by X years: Least Chances
Although it is not politically feasible, but lets say they reduce the age limit by X years. Even then each segment, which misses out from current scheme of things will get at-least 2 compensatory attempts on the lines of UPSC.
Same BJP govt, faced lots of issues in 2014 when similar changes were made in UPSC. Finally they agreed on compensatory attempts. So they will not repeat same mistake again. In case they go ahead with changes, they will definitely give at-least 2 compensatory attempts.
In nutshell, if you are serious about clearing PCS exam, don’t pay head to these news, everyone is safe for at-least 2 attempts. Don’t waste time on these diversions. Channelize your energy towards PCS 2020 preparation.
This way you cover General Studies syllabus holistically in first 3 months of preparation.
Then you get one month break in Mains Schedule & Fully focus on Prelims.
After Prelims you resume with Mains program. This gives you a buffer slot for Optional subject preparation after Prelims as you have already covered your General studies portion during prelims preparation.
