AMU2IAS – The Beginning!!!


The 6 qualifiers from AMU in Civil Services Examination(CSE), 2014 visited AMU premises on 25th of August 2015.

In our visit to AMU, we found that AMU students are full of energy, enthusiasm and motivation to do something worthwhile in their lives. The visit was overwhelming for us in all respects.

But given the lack of time and our small energy reservoirs, we couldn’t answer all the queries then. This blog is born out of the need felt to have a Discussion and QnA forum for various students/alumni of AMU and elsewhere who want to prepare for CSE conducted by UPSC. This blog is aimed at providing an avenue to aspirants for a continued discussion with qualifiers of CSE primarily from AMU and others,  as well as,  for providing guidance to the aspirants according to the changing exam pattern.

Readers are encouraged to ask questions but please have a look into the already asked queries and their answers before asking.

We sincerely hope that it serves the purpose it’s meant for.

Happy Reading!!!

  12. Mohammad Adnan

    I want to ask that during our journey how we introspect that whether we proceeding on the right path or not

  13. Mohammad Adnan

    And also how to know that the strategy we are making or the ways we are adopting for prepration are worthwhile or they are just a wastage of time

    • amu2ias

      Dear Adnan,
      To analyze where are we moving with things,
      you can take up previous year questions of the topics covered and see if you are able to do them.
      Discussions with friends who are preparing, online forums may also help.

      Finally, to have confidence in your self will be your greatest asset 🙂

  14. Mohammad Adnan

    Can I ask one thing?
    That how to improve answer writing skills because we I write something nothing clicks in my mind at that time and I only used to fill the pages with meaning less ideas.
    So, plz give me some suggestions of how to overcome this hurdle.

    • amu2ias

      Filling meaningless points will not fetch you marks. Please write the things which you know is relevant to what is asked.
      To score well, knowledge is the key. Read from various news source to widen your knowledge base in social issues.
      One should also have the ability to clearly express one ideas.

  15. Mohammad Adnan

    Assalamualiakum to all
    I want to ask one thing that most of you have mentioned about your ‘ground work’ which you have done in your college time.
    So can anybody tell me what are the qualities which come under this ground work. And what should be we do to make our base strong during college period.
    Thank u
    Pls rply ASAP

    • amu2ias

      Ground Work would mostly be related to getting abreast with the latest happenings in the country related to subjects covered in the syllabus of CSE.
      One should be able to understand various issues and give an analysis of why the issue exists and what are the possible solutions with pros and cons of proposed solutions. Gradually, a person would be able to develop the habit of analyzing issues deeply which would later help during serious preparation.

  16. Taniya

    Assalamualekum to all .. PD kitni help krti h kya montly padhna chahiye

  17. Shahid Jawed

    • amu2ias

      You can start at any given time,
      In the beginning, u can start basic books and later as you develop more understanding of the topics, you can go for more detailed study in coming years. Please refer to the blog for booklist.

    • amu2ias

      Although one can very well prepare after engineering, but if u r really interested in Engineering, then do it well and pursue the career options there. You can start preparing with job if you feel disinterested in yours.
      If you are really interested in CSE, you can also go for various other University Courses and prepare simultaneously.

  22. Tauseef Akram Ansari
