    Hi Aspirant,


    Nice to see your passion for the civil Service exam. You can be a civil servant and can serve the country.

    Yes friend you can continue your preparation for civil service exam from your home. You can study of civil service syllabus at home.

    But you would have some need of guidance which you can get with your senior who is preparing for civil service exam or from any coaching institute.

    You should do the conceptual study for the civil service exam.

    Friend in my knowledge there are no institute or very few institute which are offering civil service coaching in free of cost.

    But these coaching can reduce the amount of fee for the brilliant student. I thing you should talk with coaching institute.

    Obviously they will consider your problem.

    But you should start the preparation of civil service exam at home.

    You have need of very hard dedication to crack the CSE. You should do systematic study.

    Schedule your time table as per the syllabus of Civil Service exam.

    You should study with the reference books and you can also use NCERT books because their study material is authentic and as per competitive exam.

    You should also read newspaper and listen news for the preparation of General studies paper.

    Study with competitive magazine to enhance your knowledge.

    You can clear your concept in coaching institute if any doubt.

    Keep on continue hard work and don’t be desperate in any circumstances.

    Practice previous year question paper to know the exam pattern.

    For more information visit http://upsc.gov.in

    I am attaching below the notification for UPSC Civil Service exam where you can find the detailed syllabus of CSE.



    Best of Luck…

    Friend,

    Sure you can prepare for the civil exam from the home only. There is no need for the coaching institute If you are able then you can appear for the Civil service Examination.

    The candidates who wish to join in the civil service departments have to prepare for the exam well before.

    The candidates have to make the good study plan and start planning

    Try to take the help of the experience candidates who have already cleared this exam or appear for the exam..

    Before starting for the exam you have to Know the syllabus for the exam


    The Exam Syllabus for the exam

    =>General Studies
    =>Current Affairs
    =>General Awareness

    In these subjects the General studies is the hardest subject .For this one you have to prepare for the General Studies.

    =>Make the habit of Reading the daily new papers.

    Thank You.

    Dear aspirant,There are many ways by which you can prepare for civil services examination from home, my friend there is no need to go for the coachings and all as you can prepare for the same by yourself, all you need to do is keep yourself upto date in terms of current events and the subjects you are studying in the graduation you need to be good on that by any cost.You should make a special routine for yourself to study, if possible call any of your friend to your home for group studies, make the environment of your home like an coaching institutes.Coaching institutes only guide you for the examination and always try to aware you for the examination, this is the main thing they do and one more thing they do is increasing the confidence level, my friend you can also increase your confidence level by practicing hard, if you make yourself good in terms of knowledge then your confidence level will automatically increase and you can see the flow of confidence in yourself.The subject you are going to choose for the examination, make sure that you have a command on that.For more details please visit www.upsc.gov.inThank you

    hi,

    yes, you can prepare at home with yourself.

    First you need to set your goal then start preparation of Civil Service Exam.

    If your First Goal is Civil Service then you can give time to Civil Service.

    >> You can utilize your free time if your goal is fixed.

    >> first Collect material for study.

    Collect NCERT books and Start Reading and preparation of Civil Service.

    >> Daily Read newspaper like The Hindu.

    >> Regular Reading Of Magazine like chronicle, Yojana and Kurukshetra.

    >> Daily Watching of TV will also increase your general Knowledge.

    >> NCERT books are best for Preparation

    >> And also read magazine to improve knowledge

    There is less possibility of Free Coaching and but coaching is not require, you can prepare at home with yourself, you only need is material.

    all the best
