EducationHow to avoid distractions for UPSC aspirants


Students who are going to attempt Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) Civil Service Exam (CSE) realize the vitality of being focused during its preparation. In many cases, when students are told to be focused, they get distracted the most by a lot of things that keep happening in their lives and the external world. Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) Civil Service Exam (CSE) is not that easy to crack and requires a lot of patience, determination to succeed, and a never-give-up attitude among the students. Many UPSC aspirants have shared with the media outlets how they had to face mental agony and academic pressure while giving their best to study for the exams.

An IAS officer who had also cracked UPSC CSE and several other toughest entrance exams had mentioned on her Twitter profile how students can remain focused and keep distractions away while preparing for the UPSC exams. Divya Mittal, an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer has overcome all the challenges in her life to reach wherever she is now.

Education is a service and not a business

In her Twitter post, she stressed the importance of cutting down the usage of mobile and creating a customized study plan. She said how mobile phones are one of the top distractors during the studies and how reducing the time that one spends on mobile can help to focus on UPSC preparation well. For example, she came up with an idea of an app that blocks internet usage for almost 6 hours daily. Just imagine how time-saving this idea can be because you really are away from the internet for almost 6 hours.

Studying in the early morning hours has really amazing benefits, as per the IAS officer. She mentioned how studying early helps one to learn efficiently because obviously there are fewer distractions, which can increase one’s productivity in learning. Short study sessions are recommended by her wherein one can study for 90 to 120 minutes by taking 15 minutes break between every session. This helps to enhance the learning potential and removes any stress levels among the students.

Exercising on a regular basis is suggested to her as it improves one to focus on one thing at a time. One can keep a regular exercise schedule of 20 minutes a day at home or walk outside and get some sunlight for 10 minutes, be near nature and take nutritious home-made meals. These are the simple tips suggested by the IAS officer to ensure that UPSC aspirants also score well and get their dream jobs.

There are several other methods to increase focus and concentration among students. UPSC aspirants can also make short notes that they can study in the morning hours every day to memorize the important pointers in each subject. They can keep their study schedule quite simple, and stress-free and include rewarding points if they complete a particular day’s studies well. For example, if a student aims to study for 6 hours a day, then he can reward himself with something special that he likes – like watching a short reel, or texting a friend, etc. and this can be done only after the studies so that the distractions will be less.
