Dear Gopal,

Your preparation strategy makes sense, probably you
might thinks of the following suggestions.
1. You may also read newspaper at least an hour a day. Take cuttings
of important issues by important authorities and writers.
2. CSAT II is very critical, pay more attention on this . Only if you
pass the prelims in the first attempt you get any confidence to move on.
3. One hour run is absolutely fine, but you may restrict it three times a Weeek.
4. You may allot one hour for writing an essay on any one subject. please
remember that the main exam is purely essay writing, small and big.

Good Afternoon Sir
Thank you for your reply sir
I will schedule some time for CSAT II and enough time for newspaper too. Evening I start my studies at 7.30 p.m. and it end up at 11.30. Morning I get up at 6.30 am and can spare time only with newspapers.

I now spend all the Sundays for studies and revision. From may 2nd week i ll start my test series sir.

I cant make any hard and assured timing for my studies during my work hours because my work load varies from day to day, most of the days will be packed with classes and few clerical works.

I am trying my best to clear CSE 2016 itself. With heights of hope utilizing all my free times for the exam purpose.

I schedule my physical fitness activities based on your book " health and happiness". I do go for running 3 days a week and alternative 3 days in gym with weight workouts . I do believe that these activities less my stress and making my body strong , will increase my confidence level and obviously we all like to look good at any attire. My weight was at 80's last year and now I am 74 Kg weight and 171.5 cm height sir. I trying to put my weight down to 70 kg. I had changed my diet into full vegetarian.

Feel more confident whenever I communicate with you sir! Thank you Mr.Inspiration

Thanking you

Best Regards
