Hyderabad: “It is more important to be able to decide what not to read than what to read. Thus quality content becomes important for studying and it's repeated revision helps one to succeed” said Jitesh V Patil, IAS, Special Officer, Assembly Elections. He has interacted with GITAMITES and provided the guidance how to crack civil services examination which was held on Friday.
He said that, instead of memorising, candidates should start understanding concepts. The writing capability of the candidate is tested because if one gets selected for the civil services, one has to spend at least fifty percent of his/her time in writing. Therefore, candidates should understand the questions and answer precisely instead of beating around the bush, he made it clear.
While answering the questions, he explained a length about the attitude, the necessity of being a good listener, basic things of IAS aspirants, Rote memorisation, balancing of career and enjoyment, empathy, the importance of newspaper reading and how to prepare etc. He also advised the GITAMITES to visit his own blog opengyan.blogspot.com to get more clarity and further guidance.
