Work for most university examinations can be done at a leisured pace. On the contrary, a candidate for the Civil Services Examination does not have much time at his disposal. It will be extremely unrealistic to think that one can prepare for this examination within a short time. Apart from vigorous preparation for at least one year, if candidates keep this examination in view for one more preceding year, they would be on the right path. Since very few candidates would have been preparing like that, the Study Circle emphasizes on the nature of the preparation to be made, the pattern of setting the questions and how to tackle them, evoking their interest in the various areas of knowledge, and acquiring a picture-like view of the various themes to be studied. All these dimensions of guidance would be projected as the teachers talk to the students in the sittings as per the schedule of work given to them at the time of enrollment.
