Ayush Sinha, who secured seventh rank in the UPSC civil services, stressed the need for proper planning and time management while preparing for the examination to crack Civils.

He was addressing a gathering of students and parents at the awareness programme on civil services organised by Dr. Lakshmaiah IAS Study Circle in association with The Hindu at Jawahar Knowledge Centre, SRR & CVR Govt. Degree College on Monday.

“Planning plays a key role in preparing for the examination. An aspirant should ensure that the entire syllabus for prelims and mains including optional is completely studied at least two months before the preliminary examination,” he said.

“Choosing optional subject is also an important aspect. I have taken anthropology and studied it through online classes provided by Dr. Lakshmaiah Study Circle. Also, apart from tracking current affairs one should be able to present their views in the examination with respect to the contemporary,” he added. Clearing up the myths and confusions over civils among the aspirants Dr. Lakshmaiah Group of Institutions honorary chairman P. V. Lakshmaiah said people with common sense and confidence in oneself will be able to crack the examination.

He said an aspirant should be able to internalise any kind of subject like journalists do and present it as required in the examination and his or her parents must ensure that a positive environment around the aspirant is created.

New course

Mr. Lakshmaiah said that the Study Circle would start a degree-cum-civils preparation course in SSR & CVR Govt. Degree College for boys soon.

Free test papers

He said that ‘The Hindu Civils Aspirants Forum’ in association with Dr. Lakshmaiah IAS Study Circle and The Hindu is going to offer free test series for civils aspirants ahead of the coming preliminary examination.

Aspirants can visit, register and take the 10 tests for free and get explanations to the papers later. Mr. Ayush also interacted with the students and gave away tips. College principal Velaga Joshi, and corporator K. Sesharani were present.
