How much academic brilliance help in tackling Civil Service Examination?

Civil Service Examination has always been attracting talented candidates and with recent changes, a lot of higher, professional-degree equipped candidates are getting attracted towards it.
In today’s fast paced world, you need clear cut ideas about the task in hand and know-how to execute it in the best possible manner.
Civil Service Examination is a different exam-plan where some fresh graduates make it possible in the very first attempt and many post-graduates and higher-studies background aspirants struggle to cross the first hurdle – Prelims.
An aspirant’s academic brilliance, performance and educational achievements are worthy that gives you wide knowledge base, recognition, remunerative career, respect etc. but, when you plan to appear in Civil Service Examination, you are on a different turf.
Your academic brilliance and achievements are no guarantee for success in Civil Service Examination leave aside lust for IAS post that requires high ranks. UPSC is looking out for sharp, talented and suitable candidates who would be assigned job and responsibility of a ‘Civil Servant’ where understanding of issues, communication skills, analysing capacity, synthesising various aspects and reaching at the conclusion are some of the qualities which are at test.
When it comes to approach for Civil Services Examination, one needs different mind-set as here the aim is not to get Degree. Their objective is to have a competitive edge over others and set sights on excellent marks in Mains (Written) so that a good performance in Interview can ensure higher ranks thus a career of your choice ‘IAS’.
To envisage success in Civil Services Examination, you need to have clear idea about the complete exam-plan and related requirements at each stage of examination. Among many factors, accessibility to focused, planned and updated studies material is the most important one.
Civil Services Examination urges you to take a different approach, shifting your thinking from general view of academic achievements to gaining all round excellence and make focused hard work to prove that you are the best.{Courtesy:}
