Important Topics:

Reasoning Ability Preparation Strategy

This section is less of remembering formulas and more of practicing and imagination power. The examiner will most probably try to check your common sense in the examination hall. So you need to solve a lot of questions from this section in order to have a good score.

  • There are very few shortcuts as far as the reasoning section is considered. The more you practice the better you will perform in this section.
  • You need to first learn the concepts of syllogism, inequality, direction sense, blood relation, order, and ranking.
  • Attempt as many sectional tests as possible.
  • The examiner will try to know your common sense and imaginary power in this section.

Important Topics:

  1. Inequality
  2. Syllogism
  3. Blood relation
  4. Direction distance
  5. Alphanumeric series
  6. Order & ranking
  7. Puzzle

English Language Preparation Strategy

Again this section is considered to be the deadliest among the students. They totally try to escape from it. But most probably you will be trapped in mains.

  • There are basically 2 parts in the English section i.e grammar and vocabulary/comprehension.
  • Go through the rules of grammar from any standard book and then practice as many questions as possible. Do not try to cram any new rule.
  • For vocab, inculcate the habit of reading newspapers daily and note down new words.
  • Continue the process till the final selection and revise them in a regular interval of time.

Important Topics:

  1. Cloze test
  2. Reading comprehension
  3. Error spotting
  4. Para jumble
  5. Match the column
  6. Subject-verb agreement

General Awareness Preparation Strategy

Again some students finally do not get selected only because they can not clear the sectional cutoff of this section. Yes, there are many things to cover in this section, but with a proper strategy, resource and perseverance, you can easily score more than 80% marks in this section.

  • Practise/revise static gk MCQs from the BYJU'S Exam Prep app.
  • Cover the last 4-5 months of current affairs.
  • Cover the annual budget facts, capital, and currency of countries, the rank of India in different indices, and other important facts.
