    Try to extract a minimum of 8 hrs from you daily schedule. Study all the NCERT books of History, Geography, Polity-Constitution, a good daily newspaper to start with. If you are able to this initially, you can go ahead with you preparation. But if you find it difficult, then I am afraid that you are not in a position to turn your dream into a reality. After you you have to loose something to gain something. You need to set your priorities right.
