    If you are also faced with this challenge, you will be pleased to know that you are not alone. Many working professionals are preparing for the W.B.C.S. Exam and some have even managed to crack the toughest recruitment test in the world through their sheer hard work and determination. But as they say, hard work without a plan is like a Ferrari without a steering wheel; so if you are planning to crack W.B.C.S. exam along with a job, your plan will play an equally important role as your hard work.

    1. Make every second count

    As a personal working a full-time job, it is vital for you to maximize the time available to you. Taking 8-hour shift as standard working hours, you will not be able to dedicate more than 3-4 hours as dedicated time for W.B.C.S. preparation.

    It is important to make use of whatever little time you get throughout the day for preparation. The best way to do this is by utilizing all the little breaks and even your lunch hour to cover your daily reading like newspapers and magazines. Generally, these materials consist of light reading topics with daily happenings and events; therefore it doesn’t require dedicated study time. It would also help if you maintain a personal journal and make notes of whatever you read throughout the day, this will help you sum them up at the end of the day.

    2. Study in minutes not hours

    You will have to plan your study sessions very carefully. Limited time availability also means that you will have to make every second count and thus it would be better if you make a study plan that is based in minutes rather than hours. For instance, if you have to cover Modern Indian History; you can break it down into smaller topics like

    • 1857 Revolts & Reforms undertaken
    • Formation of Indian National Congress
    • India After Gandhi
    • Indian National Movement
    • Government of India Act 1935

    Now, these topics can be further classified into smaller sub-topics which can be studied and covered in a few minutes. Breaking large topics into smaller chunks will not only help you manage your time well, but it will also help you study and retain more information over a period of time.

    3. Stay near your office

    4. Avoid studying while travelling

    Reading while in a vehicle will tire your eyes out by the time you reach home and you will not be able to do justice to the dedicated time you have set apart for W.B.C.S. preparation. Instead, it’s better to rest your eyes and brain during travel by listening to some soothing music or just taking a nap, so that when you reach home you are fresh and ready to take on your books.

    5. Don’t completely depend on the Internet

    Internet is surely your ally when it comes to preparing for W.B.C.S. examination. But, it can also be your worst enemy if you don’t show due diligence. In most cases, ‘the world at your fingertips’ format of Internet might be an advantage for most, but W.B.C.S. preparation requires a focused approach to all the topics covered within your syllabus. This also includes current affairs and GK. Thus, reading a news story or an editorial on your smartphone might sound like a great idea; it might not be the best for your W.B.C.S. preparation. With the Internet, there is always a risk of straying away from the core focus that you are trying to study. Be it the latest meme, a viral video or a hilarious tweet; it may look they are consuming only a few seconds, but ultimately they will all add up and hurt you later.

    6. Opt for selective study

    We have already stressed on the limited availability of time which will make W.B.C.S. preparation process a very tough process for all working professionals. One way in which you can use this to your advantage is by opting for selective study. Without an iota of doubt, the Civil Services Exam syllabus is quite lengthy and W.B.C.S. aspirants who are devoted to the cause full-time also find it difficult to cover everything.

    7. Consider your job an advantage, not a liability

    The biggest mistake you can do as a working professional preparing for W.B.C.S. exam is to deem your job as a liability. Your full-time or even part-time job is one of your biggest assets in your pursuit of being a W.B.C.S. officer.

    8. Outsmart your competition

    Another very important aspect for working professional preparing for W.B.C.S. Exam is to understand their competition. This means picking the right optional subjects for the mains exams, working on your writing skills and personality along with building up a stable knowledge base.
