UPPCS [Changed Pattern] Exam preparation tips: How to prepare this Exam, these strategies will work
Through this exam, UPPCS-2019 graduates and other qualified youth get a chance to serve as a gazetted officer.
PCS i.e. Combined State Service Examination is conducted in three stages by Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission. The Preliminary Examination consists of two General Studies papers. In the first question paper, 150 questions related to country-world general studies and current affairs are asked for 200 marks, in which selection is done on the basis of merit.
Like the civil service examination, questions related to CSAT are asked in the second question paper, in which it is mandatory to get 33 percent marks.
Applications have been sought for various posts of UPPCS Exam 2019, one of the selected competitive examinations in the country. Through this examination, graduates and other qualified youth get a chance to serve as a gazetted officer.
This time many major changes have been made. Now only thirteen times the total number of candidates will be qualified in the Pre Exam and only two times in the Main Examination. Obviously, this will increase competition. In such a situation, let us know how to prepare for the exam with the right strategy according to the changed pattern.
Strategy of preparation
About 40 to 50 percent of the questions in the preliminary examination are of the traditional type, for which it will be beneficial to study school level NCERT books.
Clearing a concept of geography with a map does not cause confusion. All the points displayed in the map and the facts related to them should be prepared sequentially by connecting them to the current.
Historical facts are a bit difficult to remember. Therefore, through the story of history, facts can be recalled for a long time on the basis of formulations.
Part of the Constitution, Article, Schedule and Constitution amendments, discussed decisions, etc. should be studied for questions related to polity. Science questions require analyzing modern scientific technical aspects along with scientific concepts.
Under the economy, questions related to the ups and downs of the Indian and global economy, the basic concept of the economy, demographic, currency system and financial inclusion etc. are asked. Similarly, an in-depth study of environment and ecology, agriculture system of the state and government and public welfare schemes is necessary.
Due to the changed pattern of examination, the importance of current is increasing, in which questions related to common issues, general knowledge, sports and current events related to the country and abroad are asked.
For the time being, keep an eye on the current issues available on at least one national newspaper, monthly magazine, news channel and internet to keep you updated on current events. The questions asked by the Commission in various previous examinations should also be studied regularly, this makes it easier to ask questions and solve repetitive questions.
Csat qualifying paper
In the second question paper, questions of general Hindi, English, Mathematics, Reasoning etc. of high school level related to CSAT are asked. It consists of 100 questions, 200 marks. This paper is qualifying i.e. it can be passed by getting 33 percent marks in it.
Time management role
Time management is very important for success in this exam i.e. your reading speed and ability to understand the subject should be fast, so that you can get maximum information in less time. One advantage of this is that studying according to fixed routines and fixed time tables does not create a situation of disorientation and uncertainty.
It should be very fast to read and understand the questions in the examination hall quickly and choose the correct answer and the speed of marking the answer on the answer sheet. You can learn this time management by practicing to solve model question papers or previous years papers regularly in a certain period of time, before the exam, because there is a possibility of missing the questions in case of speed drop.
Negative marking challenge
In order to prevent the tendency of rhetoric in the preliminary examination, a negative marking of one third mark has been provided on each wrong answer. In such a situation, questions about which nothing is known, they should not tick at all.
But the question of which two or three options may or may not have the correct answer, can be risked in rhyme. Because if you do not gain by doing this, then there will be no loss also.
The cut-off trend has been around 70 percent in the past years. If you solve less than 70 percent of the answer, your chances of selection may be very low. If you are close to 70 percent marks, then in this way only solve the selected questions. If you are far from the target, solve more questions, so that the average of your correct answer reaches 70 percent.
Questions in the examination hall should be patiently, carefully read and solved in a focused manner. Simple and easy questions are also likely to be wrong in haste or over-excitement. Many times, reading the unfinished question or choosing the answer based on the first-second option also makes the answers wrong.
Therefore, after reading the question to the end, the option should be selected only when it is fully satisfied. Questions with simple, easy and known answers should not be wrong in any case.
Overall, do not take nervousness or stress at all in the examination hall, keep the mind calm otherwise there will be loss rather than profit. Keep in mind the mistakes made during the previous examinations, so that it does not recur in the upcoming examinations.
However, with a positive attitude, visionary strategy, time management and hard work, success can be achieved in even the most difficult exams. All that is required is to maintain consistency in your preparation with enthusiasm and instill in yourself the ability to take the right decisions at the right time.
