Preparation Strategy for RRB Group D 2022 Exam
We have stated some of the expert tips to prepare for the RRB Group D 2022 Exam
Attempt Previous Year Question Papers
The first step in your preparation should be to attempt the previous year's question papers. As exam experts suggest previous year's question papers serve as guidebooks to identify the important topics which have more weightage and also help to evaluate the overall difficulty level of the exam.
Create Your Own Notes
General Awareness and Current Affairs both have vast topics with many details and it becomes very difficult to recapitulate the important details of the chapter/ topic in the exam. To overcome this you must make your own study notes and revise them regularly.
Regularly Read Newspaper and Journals
As seen above in the previous year's exam analysis, Current Affairs covers the major portion in the General Awareness section of the RRB Group D Exam. To ace this section, you need to read the newspaper on a daily basis and jot down the important events and review them regularly.
Create Your Own Tricks to Remember GK Notes
As mentioned earlier, General Awareness is a substantial subject with extensive details, the questions are very specific, especially in RRB Group D Exam. The only solution to remembering the important details of facts, events, etc. is to create your own exam tricks/ mnemonics. The tricks could be statement-based or story-based in either English or Hindi language (as per convenience).
Study From a Credible and Updated Source
Most of the candidates study from outdated study material such as books, PDFs, online notes, etc., and end up marking the wrong answer in the actual exam. To avoid this, you must follow the updated study material, for books you can refer to the latest print edition, and for PDFs and notes, you can check the published date (whether it is published recently or not).
Attempt Mock Tests
Mock tests also play a crucial role in one’s preparation. Through regular attempts of mock tests, you can practice time management, evaluate your strong and weak areas and work accordingly.
