Much has been said, about the importance of UPSC Syllabus in IAS preparation.
Ask any IAS topper or coaching institute, the first advice they would give you is, read and memorize the whole syllabus.
But most of the aspirants seem not interested in reading syllabus.
Because many of them think that buying a perfect study material (actually there’s no perfect study material in the market for Civil service exams preparation) and memorizing them is enough.
But sadly, that’s not the case, you can’t prepare for IAS exam just by reading some bland text books.
And also recommended study materials are not perfectly fit for the preparation. because you need to filter out lots of irrelevant topics from them.
Throughout your upsc journey, you are going to rely on list of study materials, lots of online sources and publication.
The sources you’re going to refer not necessarily created for upsc exam, they comes with many topics – some are relevant for upsc while some not.
So, how can you find topics whether ir relevant or non-relevant for CSE.
And also how can you find the important topics and prioritize them.
It’s all about syllabus.
Syllabus will give you clear picture about the topics you need to prepare and topics you have to avoid.
To understand the important topics and subjects
By memorizing syllabus, you will learn that which subject or topic is important to prioritize.
So, you can effectively and effectively create a daily time table for ias preparation.
Saves your time
As an upsc aspirant, your time is indispensable. You have very limited time for preparation.
To use effectively your limited time, you have to have the clear road-map and this is what memorizing syllabus like.
Knowing syllabus helps you to understand which topics are relevant for upsc and which are non-relevant.
Hereafter you will not waste your time anymore on reading non-relevant topics or chapters. And wasting your valuable time.
It’s not hard to read newspaper anymore
You are just staring at newspaper, not reading anything. Right?
The problem is, you don’t know what to read. Because you don’t know the syllabus.
Once you read the syllabus, you will know what sections are important for upsc purpose.
Instead of asking someone the question, “how to read newspaper”.
Read the syllabus and take newspaper, now you know, “ how to read newspaper for IAS preparation” and you will teach others.
Memorizing syllabus is very hard, this is why many people don’t do it. But you should. Because it helps you to be productive.
So, go take the syllabus and read it, Now.
