|1||study too much but I am not able to retain them.|
|2||forget the things very soon.|
|3||Cannot recall the things in exam.|
|4||Sit for whole day but my efficiency is very low.|
|5||While studying, start thinking about something else.|
Have u ever faced such a kind of questions ?
Lets try to find the reasons Why this happens ?
These things happens because we commit one of following mistakes :
|1||We keep book in front of us but start thinking about something else like exam failure tension, what will do after getting selected, why left the job and start preparing for UPSC, thinking about these questions, wasting time in thinking about these things how will the efficiency come?|
|2||Reading but not studying, there is difference between reading and studying, Studying means actually grasping what ever you are studying and reading means just moving the lips.|
|3||Not frequently revising the things, we are not machine that once you store the things and if search using alt + F4 will publish the same result every time. As machine need frequent maintenance we need more than them.|
|4||we forget the things because we use only one sense eyes while reading any material if start using other senses like ears and lips then situation will be different.|
What is solution for this ?
And yes this is not end, you have to revise it frequently also which is necessary what ever method you follow to study.
Why we start thinking something else because our concentration power is very low, and we have desire to crack UPSC but not enough determination, which can deter us to touch mobile and start browsing internet,some times we also have stress in our mind to fulfill the expectations of parents,family members , UPSC not in sight, life without job at this age trigger the tension and stress which is very usual that’s why we say UPSC is personality test also.Once we start preparing for it, we get trapped in vicious cycle and become UPSC addicted. So study more with full concentration and get rid of this cycle.
There cannot be any readymade solution of this problem, but some common threads may be like :
1. Always have a back up, if not UPSC what else? my suggestion is until and unless you are son of Seth, it gives very positive energy and removes the stress.
2. Take it just an exam not make it life, take some rest, do not make your life hell.
3. Meditation, regular exercise, yoga give you energy and you remain active.
4. Always keep in mind that why you are here if wasting time, are you justifying yourself because our inner voice is strongest vigilance on us, we can cheat whole world except that voice.
