CSE 2022: Plan/ Strategy/ Daily Routine

This is an everything thread for all stuff 2022. You can post your daily goals, end-of-the-day updates, weekly targets or any weird thing you use to measure your progress. You can put into words & post the soul-sucking sadness that is threatening to devour you & your productivity. You can write what made your day & let others experience the happiness too, at least vicariously. This is a thread to pick each other up. This is a thread to keep each other accountable. This is a no-judgement zone.

--------

“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be a long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.”

— Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

I have had scattered preparation during my previous attempts. I was doing everything and still felt I have done nothing in the end. A little bit of answer writing here, a few current affairs classes there, a little bit of ancient, a few time economy, etc. In short, there was no coherence and consolidation in whatever I was doing. I used to feel I know something still I was terrified of appearing for tests. I have waste time chatting on random Telegram study groups which I am completely going to avoid henceforth. It has been a major distraction with no help whatever in proportion to the time we spend on it.


I have decided to complete the syllabus in a coherent manner in this attempt. I will be doing subjects one by one by going through classes and making notes. This is all that I am thinking to do right now. Tests, current affairs, answer writing everything will be done in time but the first priority is to complete the syllabus and have basic notes ready for each.

Till now I have completed Ancient, Medieval, Art & Culture and Modern India. I intend to complete Society and Geography during this month and then I will move to Ethics, Science & Technology, and Economy during November. Polity, Governance, IR will be done in December. Environment, IR, Social Justice in January.  This is the minimum I want to complete. This is quite an uphill task and requires a lot of effort given that I am working but I'm willing to put in effort into the same.

@Patootie May I know what is your approach for creating Anki cards? I made cards of previous year questions from Modern History. I am now planning to do it for facts while going through Spectrum.

Another question is do you keep a single deck for all subjects or have a different deck for each subject. It became unmanageable for me to everyday revise 150+ scheduled cards spread across multiple decks.

Hey, I use a deck for each topic in each subject. For example, today I made cards for Simon Commission and Boycott movement. Instead of typing long answers, I click a  photo  of the relevant page.  I make Questions from mains pov,  and use the subject name as a tag.  I just started using Anki, so I don’t know how it’ll work out eventually

Can I use Casio 991ES for maths optional? Although UPSC says any non-programmable calculator is allowed, but I'm a little apprehensive about using this one as it has differentiation and integration functions. Please help. 

I think it is 991ex. Yes you can use this.

I meant the 991es plus one. You're probably talking about the 991ex classwiz one (i googled 😂). Anyways, if they allow the 991ex one, there shouldn't be a problem with the 991es one. Thanks ,😄

Going to take a break from forum people, you have been very very supportive, maybe I just need time for settling this feeling that I might just not clear. I am trying and failing every time. 

I am planning to finish UPPCS, then wait for pre results, and then see how I might go about preparation. I feel so lost at this moment. Anything I am trying isn't working. 

To all, for your motivating messages I am very very grateful, I will be back but after conquering my emotions, being little more strong, focused and clear about how I would like to move forward. 

All the very best everyone.
