First of all welcome to the careerguide.comIts difficult but not impossible to prepare for the Civil services Examinations along with a job. the main thing required is your willingness to put in your best and be ready for stretching your limits. You may be aware of the eligibility for the UPSC examinations: you need to be a graduate in any discipline, must be a citizen of India and must have attained the age of 21 years but not more than 30 years of age.The advertisements for the Preliminary exams are normally published in leading newspapers and Employment News around November-December.
The exams are conducted around May - June; sometimes, however they have even been held as late as August. Those who clear the Prelims will have to then appear for the Mains exams which is normally held after 4-5 months of the Prelims. Prelims Exams consists of 2 objective type questions papers of 200 marks each. In the Mains, two papers are language papers of which one is English (Compulsory) pf 300 marks each, an Essay paper of 200 marks, 2 General Studies papers of 300 marks each and 4 papers which you can choose. Your choice will be of 2 subjects for which there shall be 2 papers each of 300 marks. Those who pass the Mains are then called for the interview which is actually a means to test your personality. If and when you are serious about appearing for this exam, be clear that you WANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN IT; dont start with a readiness of failure. And one more thing, you need AT LEAST ONE FULL YEAR'S preparations if you want to be successful at these exams; in this one year, you will have to eat, drink, think and sleep the material needed for the examinations. So it is obvious you will have to streamline and manage your time very efficiently. Since you are working, you shall begin with a decision of NOT TAKING ANY LEAVES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR so that you can collect enough leaves to affort you at least 30 -45 days of preparation time for the exams. You will have to become a sponge grasping and soaking in all the information around you - leave no media out - newspapers, magazines, television, internet, etc. You will have to become a walking encyclopedia. All the very best for your endeavours.
