Be observant all the time
You need to be highly observant during the preparation of the exam. Read every question carefully, be clear with what the question is asking from you. You need to be clear with the tricky questions as well. Segregate your sections go from easy to moderate then to difficult.
Focus on Prelims:
Most of the subjects in prelims are repeated again in Mains, so if you have clear concepts in your preliminary exams; you need to put less effort for Mains. This means having the opportunity to practice more.
Online mock tests:
