BPSC Economics Preparation Strategy

The study of economics is essential to strategize, the best way to organise the preparation is to divide the economics study into two steps:

  • Conceptual understanding of the topics such as GDP, repo rate, reverse repo rates, CRR SLR, inflation, deflation, growth, development, inclusive growth, financial integration and human development can be covered by reading the NCERTs. It is also important to be familiar with this concept because of late BPSC papers that have asked questions about it.
  • The aspirant is required in studying magazines, etc. Conceptual understanding. For example, when the news media discusses how RBI reduces its repository rate, an aspirant needs to brainstorm its economic impact. That would lead to higher lending and investment.
  • Read many times the BPSC 2021 Economics Program to know accurately what your materials need to learn.

Check BPSC Mock Test for the Prelims Exam

  • Test yourself, don't just read. Following the reading, see if you can answer all questions at the end of the chapter. Check your learning results.
  • Make sure you only prepare to break the BPSC examination to not master a subject. Therefore, read the relevant articles.
  • Determine a certain time each day and ensure that you adhere to it.
  • Prepare keywords/points on flashcards and relate them pragmatically to a current problem.
  • Review the documents of at least 5 years in the preceding year to help you familiarise yourself with the type of question asked.

Some other Preparation Tips:

  • After gaining concept clarity in economics, an aspirant must keep himself up to date by reading newspapers and magazines on a regular basis.
  • It is advised to synchronise and go hand in hand with the preparation of prelims and hands.
  • Practice tests to avoid stupid mistakes are very important.
