**UPSC Statistics Preparation tips**

Start reading newspapers for UPSC Statistics. Not newspapers like Times of India(I would suggest that the first thing you do is throw out that newspaper), but papers like The Hindu and The Indian Express. They are very good and I would suggest you read them religiously.

Start reading UPSC Statistics NCERTS. These are basic UPSC **Statistics **textbooks which will give you the gist of the subject and then you can go deeper and deeper into that subject.

Make use of the Internet. Watch UPSC Statistics documentaries like BBC’s Days that shook the World which will increase your Statistics knowledge base. Keep in mind that they tend to be a bit biased though.

It is imperative to do your homework, dig in to find the needs of the competition, its trends and requirements. Get the details of the examination i. e. Prelims, Mains and Personality Test.

Planning is the important part of UPSC Statistics preparation, make a workable UPSC Statistics study plan which suits your requirement. It can optimize and can actually reduce your efforts by almost 70-80% (most of the students just follow UPSC Statistics books without doing the cost benefit analysis)

I think this should be the first step towards UPSC Statistics preparation as one is required to write around 30000-35000 words in all the 9 papers of the mains exam.

Make sure the environment or ecosystem of your UPSC Statistics preparation is positive with good people around. You can make peer groups who are at similar age.

This should begin after 2-3 months of your UPSC Statistics preparation. For example, lets suppose you read a topic “Balance of Payment” in Economics, so now you should start attempting previous year’s questions to check the comfort level and accuracy.

If overall your UPSC Statistics accuracy is 60% including negative marking then the preparation is on the right track. I took the threshold as UPSC Statistics 60% since cutoffs vary between 50-55%. Similar process can also be followed for subjective questions in mains examination.
