And the main reason for this is unorganized way of studying. Our mode of study should be structured and we should then make our notes in a way UPSC asks questions. Then our thought process would be structured, we will write good answers and recall maximum number of points in the exam. So while reading newspapers, we should focus on issues and not news. Instead of replying personally to him, I thought it would be useful if I write a public post on it. Page 1 Click here to see Page 1.
In this page, only 2 articles should be read — one on judge appointment and other on high speed trains. Here is where internet steps in. We should google about all these things, read expert opinion, watch Rajya Sabha TV youtube video on it etc. Better to have online notes so that we can edit them later.
Again obviously we will not find all these in a single place, we will have to toil and search for all these things on internet. Page 3 Click here to see Page 3.
So blue fuel must be focused upon — what it is, what will be its impact, pros and cons. Page 8 Click here to see Page 8. Judiciary article — we have already read in page 1, so may be just glance through it to see if anything new covered. Islamic state article — new thing for me, so I would read it, try to link it with what I know.
If this is an important story, we would get to read more about it in coming days. Page 9 Click here to see Page 9. Ecology article — Usually such articles contain repetitive and often said things. So just a glance through is needed to see if this contains anything new. If it does, underline it, make notes and if needed search on internet. Privatisation of health sector — This is an important question for us. We should read the article and then search on internet what are the weaknesses in present system — both public health system and private health system, and the pros and cons of privatization, and how to achieve privatization while minimizing its harmful impacts.
Internet study is needed. Page 10 Click here to see Page Only article of use to us is Indians in Mosul. This is a developing story, we will read the article, most probably there will only be lines of use to us in this article which we should underline and add to our notes. Page 12 Click here to see Page Again the article of use is Kurdish leadership one.
This again is a developing story, read it fast and underline and make notes of new things we find. Japan — China question is an old one and so much we already know about it that not much time needs to be spent on it. Page 15 Click here to see Page There is an article on El Nino. The idea is — our base should be so strong that when we study the higher things, we should be able to understand them straightaway. If our base is not strong, then we would have to keep revisiting it and will waste a lot of time.
A good base means we should not feel the need of ever revisiting the basic books again. Basic Books In this phase we should cover all the basic books. These include: — Bipin Chandra for Indian freedom. However, note making is preferable for at least 3 strong reasons: 1. We may have studied something in some context but in exam we may apply it in some other context. While making notes, we convert the language of the book into our own language and this process helps a lot in internalizing stuff.
It saves time! This may sound contrary to common sense because underlining is definitely faster than painstakingly writing stuff in our own language. True, preparing notes takes lot longer than underlining books. But because they are in our own language, revising them takes lot lesser time than revising underlined stuff. In fact, with well prepared notes, it may be possible to revise your entire syllabus some times and each successive revision will be faster!
Notes are customizable. We can frame our own questions which we think may be asked in UPSC and prepare our notes accordingly. Notes on Paper vs Notes on Computer Try to make notes on computer if your typing speed is even half decent.
It is editable and can be formatted easily. We can delete, format, append, insert, do anything with notes on computer and yet make it one clean nice story. For instance, many stories in current affairs develop over weeks and months. No newspaper story will have a complete picture of it. But the question will only ask the complete story. So in our notes, we will have to edit bit by bit over time so that by the exam time we have the entire story in one place.
The choice is yours — read n number of newspaper cuttings or physical paper notes, each containing partial information or read one coherent, complete story in one place only on computer. This will help us in quick revisions as well. This may include the basic books, the advanced books, newspapers, magazines, reports etc. Thus whether we read from a book, newspaper, internet or wherever, all our notes on coal energy should be in one place only.

This will provide a picture of how to organize the notes forgive me for some instances of lack of formatting in the note as they were added when I had grown lazy. Newspaper and Magazine Reading News vs Issues People in the beginning tend to focus on news and make notes accordingly. UPSC never asks news… it asks issues. An issue specific reading thus tries to: 1. For eg. Then when we read any news, we need to connect it to the key points so identified and not bother about facts and figures.
Politics, sports, masala news etc. Keep an eye on any committee, any law, any rules, any policy, any supreme court orders etc.
These are our bread and butter in upsc preparation.
Hindu has become very very important since last 2 years. Read one more newspaper at least. Since Hindu is left leaning, so may suggest a pro-reform newspaper say Indian Express.
UPSC is a left leaning exam. So one may read EPW magazine, but beware of the excessively left leaning rattling. Similarly yojana is a helpful magazine as well. You also study in online for UPSC exam.
