How to remember formulae and concepts for exams?

Whether you are preparing for some super famous exam for which every other guy/gal seems to be preparing or just trying to survive through your graduation studies, there is one problem that might be stealing your night’s sleep – How to remember formulae? 

Formulae are like those awesome turns on highways which insanely cut short your traveling time. The only problem with them is that you realize you have missed them when you have gone too far to return. Or worse, you take a wrong turn and end up at a haunted abandoned mansion (and a flat tire)!

Life Lesson #1 : Present is everything

Life is our greatest teacher. It teaches us some lessons when we least expect it. A man gets wiser and wiser with time and experiences and the reason behind that is he learns some invaluable lessons from life.

Wisdom can be created and destroyed. It propagates by doubling itself.

Leave for IAS preparation in Railways

A new rider for CSE aspirants joining the Indian Engineering services.

My IES Journey

Recently,Ministry of Railways issued a letter to all the Centralised Training Insititutes about giving one year extraordinary leave for preparation of CSE/ESE. I am posting that letter below. The letter is self explanatory however main points are as below.

At the time of joining your service, you will be given two option.

First option is to take 1 year Extraordinary leave for appearing in the next examination of your choice from date of joining itself.

The second option is to give a decleration that you are not interested in giving any exam and henceforth you will not appear in exam after joining your respective services.

If you go for second option , then you will not be able to write CSE/ESE in future.

If you go for first option, then you will  be able to give next attempt in examination of your choice,however salary and passes will not be given.

How to write a kick-ass essay?

 

Friends, I have already blurted out that I won’t be going for Civil services exams anymore. So, I have decided to share some of my ‘sacred-tactics’ which I learned through my experiences while preparing for this exam.

One of the oft-asked question which haunts any CSE aspirant is ‘How to write a kick-ass essay?’ and by ‘kick-ass’ I mean the essay which can fetch you awesome marks. Unfortunately, like any other aspect of this exam, you can’t be 100% sure of getting awesome marks even after writing a jaw-dropping essay.
