UPSC Civil Services Examination process starts with the PreliminaryExam(Prelims) as the first round. This, in a way, can be considered to be the most important and difficult stage of exam.

The number of people qualifying prelims to write mains is around Fifteen Thousand. This comes to around 2.5-3% qualifying the prelims, the rest will have to attempt the next year.

So one should have awareness about everything happening around, i.e. current affairs. Also, an aspirant should have a sound clarity on topics of General Studies-Indian Polity, Economy, History, Geography, etc.
