IAS officer Awanish Sharan has spoken out against study vlogs claiming UPSC hopefuls must study for more than 18 hours each day. The officer, a member of the 2009 IAS batch, believes that this information is ‘misleading’ and that students do not need to study for such lengthy hours to excel in competitive tests. His post sparked a conversation among students and aspirants.

Preparing for competitive exams such as the UPSC is unquestionably difficult, considering the extensive syllabus and the requirement for thorough preparation. However, Mr. Sharan’s viewpoint calls into question the notion that success is entirely determined by lengthy study sessions.

Both the screenshots attached with the post, show the content creators mentioning how an intensive study routine of 18+ hours is necessary to crack UPSC exams.

While some agreed with him, others emphasized the importance of individual variances in retention and learning styles. They contended that excellence should not be determined merely by the amount of study hours.

The argument reflects ongoing discussions about study habits and competitive exam techniques. Sharan’s perspective highlights the importance of taking a balanced approach to exam preparation, focusing on efficiency, comprehension, and smart time management rather than sheer duration.
