Today the results for the civil services prelims was announced very early in the morning at around 3 am. Around 16900 are selected for civil service mains and about 1100 have been shortlisted for the mains exam of forest services. Those who have cleared the prelims should double or even triple their speed of preparation for the mains exam. Practice writing answers. The more you practice the more you have chances of clearing the mains exam. Depth is necessary but range is far more important than depth in the subjects.
And those who have failed this time, just do not worry much. Learn from your mistakes and strengthen your weaknesses. Work harder than before. Do not feel disappointed or lost. Your best is yet to come. I am sure you will get success in the very next year. This year the questions were quite unexpected and there were many senior players in the the game.
In short, I would say put more effort in the right direction. Be brave and take care. And those who have qualified for the next level, I wish you best of luck.
