Suggestions from toppers for IAS preparation:
Mrs. Shubhra Saxena: According to Shubhra Saxena practice and dedication is very much essential for succeeding in the IAS exam. She feels that it is not essential to spend 15 to 18 hours daily for preparation; even if you spend less number of hours for preparation the time should be qualitatively spent.
Ms. Sharandeep Kaur Brar: She acknowledges the ups and down in the phase of preparation of IAS examination and she also stresses the importance of yoga apart from preparing for exam since Yoga has the capacity to improve the concentration power the students will be able to spend hours together in the preparation process.
