Q. Tell us something about yourself and your family. When and why did you enter in the competitive exam field?
Ans. I belong from a service class family, My father is veterinarian and mother is housewife. It was in final year of engineering when my colleagues were preparing for either GATE / MBA / or to join IT industry. Though I got campus placement in TCS in my final year but it wasn’t the job I wanted to be in. In my college I joined NCC and actively took part in all of its activities including firing, horse riding, piloting, camping.
It was then I get influenced form UNIFORM. I decided to join Police force . So it was not a childhood dream or so, just after completing my B.Tech I started my journey and completed it in one Go .
Electronic Vs Paper material
Q. In recent times, there is spur in electronic material- blogs, sites, pdfs, RSS-feeds. Many aspirants feel bogged down by this information overload. So, how much do you rely on electronic material and how much on the paper material (Books, newspapers)? If possible narrate a typical day in your studylife. What is your style of preparation (e.g. I continue making notes no matter what I’m reading, I just read multiple times but don’t maintain notes, I make mindmaps on computer …or xyz style)
Ans. I am comfortable with paper material, you can say its just because I got habitual of it. When ever I take reference from online data , if its in pdf format or long enough I used to take print out of that for reading. For quick search data I jolt down thinks on paper .
Reading through electronic device have its own merits but it can also happen that a fine day you get up and find your system software get crushed or any memory/hardware/software/malware related problem then you are left with nothing. And this had happened with me once in my college time. So I go for easy and comfortable paper material.
Regarding notes making it depends. If you are not having much time just high light important stuff and write down additional information in blank space.
If you are in initial stage of preparation it is advisable to make short notes of NCERTs.
For newspaper, notes making is must otherwise you will end up with bulk of newspaper cuttings and at last trashing them. Make 5 compartments of a big notebook with sections of Economy, Polity, Sports, International relation and S&T. or make notes Date wise.
Tempo and style
Q. People know what books and syllabus topics are to be prepared. But most of them lack consistency in their preparation. So, how did you keep study momentum going on? How do you fight against the mood swings and distractions?
