Easy success in Group-1..
He also said that not all situations are the same. Once in civils I got only 80 marks out of 250 marks. If I had scored 20 more marks I would have become IAS. I narrowly lost. I think this happened because of not being able to give correct answers in the interview. 111 marks in the same group-1 interview. That means the marks will be given according to the questions asked.

Candidates should not read the same thing. Take a break in between and resume preparation. Many people say that they worked hard for 18 hours. This is incorrect. In between I used to play games, watch movies, relax by playing table tennis and shuttle. I used to do group discussions with my friends. These techniques have helped me. Eat, read and sleep on time. Meet and talk to the rankers of the competitive exams face to face. Find out their preparation plan. Doing this will bring clarity and gives courage.
