So has the examination been deferred ?
Yes it has been deferred and people can expect a postponement of 30 days.
So what do i do know? Any tips for me ?
Since the date has been deferred . We would advice you to focus on revision of static, current and notes made from the test you must have given.
Also side by side you might want to start your mains preparation. There would be many who would not have completed their GS or Optional syllabus. They should start making notes/ revising what ever is left. Do a SWOT analysis as IFoS rank 52 has mentioned and get started on a plan.
Also please start your mains answer writing again to utilize the extra time received because you never know UPSC might reduce time between pre and mains this year to stick to it’s yearly time table. This is just a guess ;). As they say expect the best and prepare for the worst.
Point is to utilize every day and every hour that you have received. Utilize it well and reap the rewards. This is not the time to relax but to buckle up and put the prep in highest gear.
