IAS 2019: Preparation Strategy
Go through the UPSC Syllabus for IAS Prelims and Mains
Refer UPSC Previous Years Question Papers for IAS exam
Prelims and Mains require different approaches and yet the heavy stress on Current Affairs is there in both. Hence, follow daily news analysis and add them to your notes
NCERT books or NCERT notes are a must for both UPSC IAS Prelims and Mains
Enrol in mock test series for UPSC IAS Prelims and do answer writing practice for IAS Mains
Keep the dates of IAS 2019 in mind and start the preparation for the UPSC IAS Mains sooner rather than later.
IAS interview for 275 marks is held after IAS aspirants qualify the Mains exam. It is better to simulate mock interviews with the help of mentors like experienced bureaucrats to drive the fear out from one’s mind.
Indian Administrative Service (IAS)
The Indian Administrative Service (IAS) is an all India administrative civil service; IAS officers have significant and strategic positions in the Union Government, States and public-sector enterprises.
India follows a Parliamentary system of government, and the bureaucracy forms an inseparable part of the executive branch of the Government and provides stability and objectivity to the administration.
Unlike other services, once a candidate is selected to the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) or the Indian Foreign Service (IFS), the officer can serve at the Centre or the State cadres.
An IAS Officer is given the administrative command of the complete revenue administration in the district as District Collector after 4 years of services. An IFS Officer represents the Government of India at the international level in bilateral and multilateral negotiations.
At several levels of administration, IAS Officers play significant roles like conducting free, rational and smooth elections in India under the guidelines of Election commission of India and states, which is an autonomous constitutional authority.
