5 Tips To Prepare For The Competitive Exam

Most of the people desire to get a government job as it provides many good facilities. Salary factor and many other benefits are important in government jobs. A person can complete his/her graduation and just start working, but the truth is, learning is a primary key for everyone. Almost everyone is trying to learn more and choosing to sit for competitive exams, switching careers and moving on. This tough competition has led to a situation where many students neglect their school studies and focus solely on “entrance coaching” which is expensive and time-consuming. With the competition for bank and SSC jobs increasing at a faster rate, it is the need of the hour to improvise the way we prepare for these exams. With IBPS PO/Clerk/SSC CGL Tier-II, RRB and RBI Assistant exams around the corner, it is vital to judiciously use the time and exploit the available resources.

Nowadays, preparing for the competitive exams have become tougher with the increasing competition among the students. Generally, students don’t plan what to prepare and how to prepare and that is a reason students often fail to secure good marks in the exam. Students should plan their preparation strategy and start devoting adequate time to it.

Here are some tips to prepare for the competitive exam:

  1. Make a timetable: Students who are fickle minded and don’t study regularly generally do not perform as well as students who have a study schedule. It is advised to make a study plan devoting specific time for each subject, plan it for the whole week and just stick to it. This way, you will get enough time to revise the learnt topics and know where you are lagging behind. Hence, you develop habits that will enable you to succeed in your education.
  1. Revise the Concepts: You should make a habit of revising the topics that you have read. Hence, the concepts will be etched in your memory forever. Try to practice more while revising the concepts. This is the easiest way to master on difficult topics like respiration, electrostatics, differentiation and etc.
  1. Practice mock tests: Students should focus on solving the mock tests, last year question papers and sample papers to get acquainted with the marking scheme and question pattern. This way students will not only get an idea about the main exam but also will feel more confident in taking the exam.
  1. Don’t Underestimate the syllabus: You should make it a priority to complete the syllabus. Because questions never come out of the syllabus. Syllabus for competitive exams may differ to the syllabus that is followed in schools. You might have to go an extra mile while preparing for your competitive exams.
