Basic Nature & Previous IAS Officer Videos
We all have a different kind of basic nature, some love to study for 8-10 hours daily some hate studies and they study only in the exam time for the passing marks. There is nothing right or wrong with their basic nature, But if you are planning to choose IAS as a career then your basic nature should be study oriented you can study for long hours or you love to study regularly and are interested to know the latest news and updates on daily basis. Watch previous IAS officers’ Videos and review their daily discipline schedule and efforts, if you can follow the same discipline and efforts then go for it.
Review all syllabus and subject of the IAS examination then analyze your weak points. For example, if you are good in English but weak in history then you can improve your knowledge of history subject but if you are very weak in mathematics and science then don’t go for the preparation.

To analyze the strength and weaknesses of the subjects.
Note: Not demotivating you for the examination just want you to see the reality and not waste a lot of years for this, You can apply for other Government jobs/Private jobs.
