How Much to Study

THere remains a lingering question in the mind of the aspirants, "How much a person should study for this exam?".The answer to this question is the time it takes for you to complete the syllabus at least threetimes before prelimininary exam. This time may vary from person to person, but an average person may reqire to study for about 8-10 hours rigorously. Ther may be variations but an average of 6 days consistency, per week, should be maintained to avoid last time stress of completing the syllabus. For main s also the time i have told is sufficient, but if you feel you may increase it, i told 810 hrs considering the time for coaching class also. writing answers and getting it evaluated apart from studying are also required. i would put this way 9-10 hrs study.1.5-2 hrs revision1.5-2 hrs for writing answer/ practicing becomes 12-14 hrs. There have been confusion about how much to study.Once again i am making it clear that we should study as much as possible. I said 12-14 hrs that doesn't mean that we should not do anything if we still have time. if we have time even after studying for stated time, we should try to analyse where we need more time. The time should then be devoted to improve the performance further.
How to Understand the Meaning of Questions(Public Administration)

Comment: In this type of question the writer has to give his own views but they should not deviate from the view of the subject significantly. For Example: Question, Politics and Administration are separate things, Comment. The answer should tell how they are separate, then next paragraph should contain why they cannot be separated and conclusion could be of twenty words with summary or the view of the subject. Discuss: The writer has to go along what the question says and the statement should be supported with facts. Besides, some challenges and suggestions could be the part of answers if question is of 60 marks. For Example: Nothing comes across more strongly that the great naivet about policy implementation, answer should go along the line to prove as to how policy implementation is a weak link in policy process. Examine/Evaluate: The demand of the question is to provide both positive and negative aspects or the merits and demerits both, then the answer should be concluded with suggestions. For Example:Delegated Legislation is necessary evil, in this kind of question the answer should first tell why the Delegated Legislation is necessary i.e. merits and then what are the problems with delegated legislation, then should come the suggestion i.e. how they could be overcome. Finally, a suitable conclusion should end the question. As far as possible the suggestions should be that of subject not of our own or at least they should be as objective as possible even if ones own. Explain: This kind of question should be answered by going along the question and actually proving the statement. In short it is equivalent to How or Prove. For Example: The main problem with M.P.Follets work is that her idealism is showing, the answer should prove the statement that how Folletts idealism or theoretical approach is a problem or limitation. Analyze: This type also demands both positive and negative aspects and suggestions before concluding. The emphasis should also be placed on the contextual nature of the type of word as in few question the reader would find that, Discuss or Explain or Comment or even Elucidate conveys the same meaning. Thus, the demand of question or the examiner is of prime importance. The meaning of question should be made clear by keeping the traditional interrogatives before the question.
