UPSC Revision Tips to Follow for the Last 3 Months

  • Keep your Preparation Timebound: A timetable is essential for your preparation. As a result, you will be able to allocate your time more effectively among various topics.
  • Prepare a plan tailored to your needs: Having a plan will give you a clear direction for preparing for the UPSC. The time allocation must be effective and tailored to your needs.
    • Examine the Syllabus in Depth: Refer to each subject’s micro-listing syllabus. This will ensure that you do not miss any topics. 

    • Make revisions based on your notes: This will save you a lot of time because you won’t have to go over each issue in detail. 

    • Keep minimum resources: Avoid any new reference books or other sources at this time, especially in the final month of preparation. Anything new will only unsettle you as you cannot revise it again effectively.

  • Allocate the remaining days to revising all the subjects, based on their importance in the examination and your level of hold on them.
  • Review what is left uncovered: The first month of this period should be spent reviewing the fundamentals of any subject you have not yet covered. Examine the UPSC preliminary exam syllabus carefully for any topics that you may have overlooked.
  • Read quality-enriched notes made by toppers or a reputable coaching institute or publisher for the topics that you believe are quality-enriched and well-researched catering to your requirement for the last month's revision. 
  • Within the first two months, you should have finished your first reading of the syllabus.
  • This is critical at this point in the planning process. Allocate time to each topic or subject based on their importance or weightage while creating a schedule for these last three months

You may make a subject-wise plan like this:

Art and culture 5 days (Breakup the days into micro-topics)
Science and Technology 10 days (Breakup the days into micro-topics)
Polity 15 days (Breakup the days into micro-topics)
Geography 15 days (Breakup the days into micro-topics)
History 15 days  (Breakup the days into micro-topics)
