2. Analyze previous years’ papers

It is crucial to become familiar with the topics that usually come in the exam. Rather than the traditional subject-by-subject approach, analyzing previous years’ papers is the smartest way to prepare for the exam.

This way, you can solid your grip in few of the most important topics.


3. Routine

Have a routine in place that has room for both study as well as physical activities.


Physical stimulation has proved to be beneficial in learning & retaining knowledge in many studies in the past.

4. Don’t go too deep with your timetable

This means that you should never create a hard calendar with many stipulations for covering subtopics inside a specific time range. 


Instead, concentrate on completing the topics for the day according to your understanding so that you do not regret wasting time on a cursory grasp of essential concepts. Be adaptable while remaining focused on your objectives. Make a schedule that allows for at least two rounds of changes.


5. Exam Strategy

The image from the 1st suggestion clearly depicts that though both Prelims & Mains have the same Exam Duration, their structures are widely different.

While in Prelims you only have to cover 2 subjects & 400 marks worth of questions in 3 hours, in Mains there are 6 subjects & 1050 marks worth of questions to cover.


Hence, you must have different strategies prepared for these 2 stages.


6. Mock Tests

As discussed in the above point, different approaches are required for different stages of JPSC examinations. And, what could be the better way to get your approach straight than to practice Mock tests.


They are a great way to not only give you a time-bound approach, but also a great way to boost your self-confidence, and fight the exam anxiety.

Making notes and revising from them gives you an instant tour of a topic along with its important points. This really gives you an edge with your revision and retention of information.
