Funny how are minds get wired to think about everything from the perspective of our preparation..
Hahaha.. Fomo is real !!

At this rate, I'll not be surprised if we have a prelims test series with 120 tests named '12000 steps' few years down the line!

@HeNeArKr would 10/10 subscribe

Is there one?

How many tests did you give for prelims last year? 

Actually, I don't remember. I followed@sjerngal madam's strategy which she wrote on her blog.

Hello everyone!
I am posting something here after about 1.5 years. Left preparing for UPSC 2021 last year, skipped prelims, tried to work a bit more on optional (math), and giving the exam this year (2022).
Got to revise static portion quickly, and take a lot of mock tests, to avoid repeating the mistake I made in 2020 pre. Any advise on my daily routine/targets will be welcome, and I thank you in advance for showing concern for me.

Today's target - 

100 pages of Modern India (Spectrum) - Dunno whether will be able to complete this till 3 am, till now I have done only 15 pages :(

Forgot to update yesterday-


Did 40 pages day before yesterday. - Not a very good day


And 70 pages of Modern India yesterday.


Dunno how to speed up the reading of modern India. I keep getting stuck at the facts, there are just so many names, dates and events in the religious reform movements chapter and the revolts before 1857 chapter.


Also, I noticed that they updated quite some movements and personalities in the new spectrum (2020 edition) since 2019 edition, and 2018 edition. (I have both, as I bought a new spectrum after the old one became tattered)
Any suggestions, whether I should buy and read the new one, or continue with 2019 edition would be welcome.

70 pages is a good enough pace, idk why you are fussing over it. I read 40 pages of spectrum yesterday and was feeling content with myself 🤦🏻‍♂️.

As much as I try to attempt mocks in rounds, I continuously fail to do so and end up doing the paper in one round. Though for me one round is quite comfortable. 

Anyone who has qualified prelims doing one round only?

What should I try to do in upcoming mocks? 


I attempt it in one round, works well for me. Do what suits you and works for you, no single strategy works!

Also if you are having problems in implementing the round strategy to the whole paper, try a mixture of both split the 100 questions into 4 blocks of 25 questions each, and then try doing these 25 questions in two rounds and so on.

Can someone please clear my doubt that whether Cess & Surcharge have been subsumed into GST, it's confusing me because surcharge is levied only on direct taxes and GST is an indirect tax?



Hi. Both have not been subsumed in GST so far. In the recent Budget, Surcharge on LTCG was mentioned. 

Cess was also applicable on one automobile purchased in previous fiscal year. I have attached the screenshot.

I had one doubt on this. I asked it then to some economics optional aspirants but could not get answer. Sharing here. Cess, what I have understood is levied on ‘tax’, that is ‘CGST + SGST’. But here, it is levied on ‘basic price of automobile’. Somebody please enlighten where I am going wrong.



Quoting from the link given below : "GST Compensation Cess is calculated on taxable value. Though it is coined as Cess, it is similar to tax. It is independent of IGST, CGST and SGST"
