First, I just want to say, whether you go to a coaching institute or are preparing from home, self-study is a necessity.

Joining a Coaching institute for MPPSC

Two types of students are involved in MPPSC coaching in Indore: - First, those who do not have basic clear and second, those who cannot study at home and need pressure to start studies.

So, if you are also one of them then you should join any coaching institute for MPPSC.

The gain or Advantage

       Coaching institutes help you to study regularly.

       Some take weekly or monthly exams, so revision is going on simultaneously.

       Teachers are available to clear your doubts.

       They tell you what is required and what is not for the exam.

Harm or Disadvantage

       They teach according to their own schedule, which may not suit you.

       You may be confused whether you should study for their daily/monthly tests, revise what is happening in the class or study the topics in which you are weak. Which can lead to backlog.

       Sometimes they just want to complete the syllabus and don't want to teach properly.

       You may be disappointed to see so much competition.

       Sometimes the schedule becomes so hectic that students do not get time to study on their own or to solve questions.

Prepare From Home or Self Study for MPPSC


Advantage of self-study

       You can study as per your requirement.

       You can also take some private tutoring which will help you clear your doubts and keep you on your toes. Plus, they won't need much time just for 1 or 2 hours.

       Study material and mppsc notesfrom Sharma Academy, MPPSC Coaching, Drishti IAS, or other institutes is easily available, so you don't have to worry about it.


Disadvantage of self-study

       You may feel that you are trapped in your home.

       You cannot study regularly.

       You can get distracted and waste your time.


So, if your basics are somewhat clear and you think, you can do self-study and will not procrastinate then self-study is best for you.

Note: If you are preparing from home then you must join a test series. And try to solve mppsc previous year question papersas much as you can.

In the end, it all depends on you. We can't tell you which one is best for you and not because we don't know how you work.

The 1st phase after deciding to take the MPPSC exam, an aspirant has to undertake a pledge to work hard considering the enormous syllabus. If you’ve taken a good look at your syllabus, then probably you must have realized the extent and depth of it. If you are confused as to from where to start and how much to study for the upcoming MPPSC examinations, then this post is perfect for you.

The first thing before you even start your exam preparations is to have a positive attitude and an optimistic approach. If you constantly crib and complain about how much the syllabus is, then you will never be able to prepare well and attempt the exam properly. Besides this, following are some syllabus related tips which you must take note of if you are seriously thinking of clearing the MPPSC exam in the current attempt itself.

Question papers of previous years

One of the most ignored source or base of all your MPPSC preparationare the question papers of the previous years. These are the most basic as well as the most useful MPPSC Notesand study material for MPPSCExamOnce you go through these, you get an idea as to what kind of questions you can expect in the main or actual exam. Hence, if you are in the process of gathering the study material, make sure you don’t forget to get hold of this. Most of you may not know this, but there are quite a few online sources from where you can order the set of previous years’ question papers and which get delivered right at your doorstep.


Invest in few but good and standard books

These days you get ample of MPPSC general studies material in the market. If you take a look at some of the books, then you will feel like buying all of them. However, avoid this temptation and don’t buy multiple books. The only thing which is different is the language used in the book as well as the approach taken for providing an understanding of the topic. But the content is all the same. Buying more than 2 or 3 books is nothing but simply waste of money because frankly speaking, you will not get so much time to go through each and every book which you have purchased, thereby letting it go waste. And as you may be knowing the popular phrase, ‘Jack of all trades, master of none,” reading all the books will not help you in becoming a master.

Concentrate equally on all subject and current affairs

As a future member of the administrative service, you are expected to be thorough with all subjects as well as your current affairs. Spend some extra time but prepare yourself well for the subjects that do not naturally interest you. Along with the regular subjects, equally important are current affairs, which is why news reading is a ‘must do’ for all you MPPSC aspirants.

These are some of the very few yet crucial aspects pertaining to your MPPSC examination preparations which you must not just remember but also follow.

This is a perennial question I get asked the most. And it’s understandable too. Many aspirants who begin their MPPSC preparation are clueless about this exam’s demands.

There are a lot of doubts and misconceptions regarding whether to take   coaching for State Services Exam MPPSC. So let me break it down for you.

Q. Is coaching necessary?

Think of an elite sportsman like Virat Kohli. Does he have a personal coach? Yes, he does. But would you say his career success is purely down to his coach? Of course not. Kohli trains and suffers day in day out, practices consistently to learn and improve his game. His self-discipline, hard work and the burning determination to excel at the game is what makes him the elite player he is.

Same goes with success in the MPPSC exam. Coaching merely helps you, it does not ensure you a rank. Your self-study, consistency, and the hard work you put in sitting at your study table matters far more than what you do in coaching classes.

So if you are attending coaching classes, do take their mppsc notes, but you should not rely excessively on them and neglect standard books. In my first Mains, I did this mistake of depending on coaching notes disproportionately— I barely read any of the standard books. When I wrote my first Mains in 2012, my lack of conceptual clarity was evident. Unsurprisingly, I failed to get an interview call.

Always remember that roughly, not more than 25-30% of your preparation should depend on mppsc coaching classes. To say that without coaching you cannot crack UPSC is to tell a lie. There are people who put in even that 25% of work by themselves and have cracked this exam (that is, they might have read coaching notes, but did not attend any classes.) So, it depends on your personal belief, self-discipline and your basic level of knowledge to determine whether you need coaching.

Suppose you know what standard books to study, what coaching notes to refer to, and by reading them you can understand the subject, that’s brilliant and you don’t need coaching.

On the other hand, if you are clueless about the exam process or the books you need to study, coaching institutes will help you get a broad idea. But as I said, you still must-read standard books, make required notes and put in the work to outshine your competition.

Q. How do you compare coaching in Delhi versus elsewhere?

As I had said, coaching does not constitute more than 25-30% of your preparation. And there’s nothing profound about coaching institutes in Delhi.

For those preparing in far flung areas, if you cannot afford to go to Delhi, that’s perfectly alright. You can get MPPSC notesof all the major coaching institutes in most cities. So make a trip once to your nearby city, buy them from a bookstore and study on your own.

Also, I believe internet has truly democratised information and made it accessible even to rural areas. These days many institutes are providing coaching classes via video lectures. You can opt for them too.

Moreover, online websites have emerged as brilliant and affordable alternatives to traditional coaching institutes. So if you cannot go to Delhi to take coaching, you are not losing out on anything.

Q. How helpful are coaching notes? Can they substitute standard books?

Standard books are important because they are written from the ground up and they form the foundation of your knowledge. Once you read standard books, reading coaching notes not only becomes much easier, but you can also see where in that big picture does a small topic fit in.

The problem with reading just the mppsc coaching notesis that they fail to you give you such big picture perspective. What you will be left with are fragmented concepts and broken knowledge which doesn’t stick for long in your memory. For long term memory, we need a topic’s context which is why you should always start with standard books.

For example, when I started Anthropology, I first read Ember & Ember to get an overview of the subject. Afterward, when I referred to Sharma Academy mppsc coaching material, I could clearly see how a particular topic such as Primate Adaptation fit into the larger concept of Human Evolution. This is why standard books are indispensable.

While reading coaching notes, remember these:

§  Coaching notes are helpful and easy to revise before the exam. But they can only supplement but never substitute standard books.

§  Always map your notes onto the chapters and topics in syllabus. Most coaching institutes do not cover the syllabus entirely. Even if they do, they usually rush through some chapters. So when you see a topic not covered well in your notes, read on your own from other sources and make notes.

§  Coaching notes and material come in handy to cover a specific topic. For example for a topic like Govt schemes, instead of you labouring to compile them from ministries’ websites, it’s better that you buy a compilation booklet of any institute. Smart work saves you a lot of time.

§  You have to remember that UPSC is not at all like a graduation exam. In college, it’s fairly easy to read just the notes and score really well. But in UPSC, the questions are of higher standard and of deeper analytical depth. None of the questions usually come directly from your coaching notes. It’s your clarity of concepts— especially in optional— that will help you write good answers.
