5 things to keep in mind when preparing for Indian Economic Service exam

The Indian Economic Service and Indian Statistical Service are the administrative inter-ministerial civil services in Group A of the Central Civil Services of the Indian government’s executive branch.

For the purpose of creating and carrying out economic policies and programmes in India, the Indian Economic Service was established. Such analysis and recommendations within the service area have multiplied since the start of extensive economic reforms in 1991 and the expansion of the regulatory role of the government. In the initial constitution of the service, all statistical positions from various ministries and departments were combined to form the Indian Statistical Service.

In compliance with the guidelines published by the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation in the Gazette of India, the Union Public Service Commission will hold a joint competitive examination for recruitment to the Junior Time Scale of the Services.

If you’re thinking of going for the Indian Economics Service exam then here are 5 things you should keep in mind 

Motivate yourself 

Here by motivating yourself we mean knowing what you’re working towards so make sure you do your research and know what you’ll get in life once you clear this exam. So before convincing people around you, which can include your friends and family, convince yourself. This is what will actually keep you motivated throughout your journey and give your mind a direction. 

Work on your mental framework 

Don’t wake up everyday with the burden that you have to prepare for this exam, instead wake up with the mindset that you’re going to learn something new today. This will keep you motivated and preparing for the exam won’t feel like a burden to you. In the last 10 days focus on mental framework specifically. What you can do is solve PYQs or study microeconomics or macroeconomics in the first half of the day and you can switch the subjects and see if your brain is adjusting to that well or not.  One thing more that you can do which I have mentioned before is forget about the previous exam once  you have given it and start thinking about what you’re going to write about next. Start thinking in that direction only. 

Make good notes 

Learn how to make good notes beforehand because these notes will help you retain what you study and are great for last minute revisions as well. Making good notes is an art as you need to know what you need to note down and what you can leave behind so make sure you know how to make good notes and also where to make them from. A good source can be your lectures and books. So make sure you do your research and find the books are are recommended for each subject in order to make notes which are actually useful.

Make sure that you enrol yourself in a good online coaching.

Make revision your priority 

For Indian Economic service exam revision is more important than content building. When you’re giving the exam you would be so short on time that you wouldn’t have the time to think and if you have not revised well then you won’t be able to recall what you have learned quickly. You might forget the sequence and important points and sometimes the one entire section. Even when you are practising for answer writing I would stick to the time limit no matter what. You have to realise that this exam is very different from the exams in college where you have a lot of time to think and do some mind mapping around how you’ll answer the question. Here you have to remember everything on your finger tips in order to attempt the exam on time.
