  • CSAT should also be taken from the day you start studying GS for PRELIM. 30% of the daily time must be paid to CSAT without fail. Since most of the GS of PRELIM is in MAINS, it is still a study, but since CSAT is a completely new subject, 30% time should be given. That's about 3 hours a day.

  • One of the biggest mistakes of students is that they spend a lot of time solving problems of quantitative aptitude, which is less than 20 out of 80. And passages that do not get around 50 marks are ignored. Therefore, 50% of the time of csat should be spent on studying the passage. Without it, csat cannot be scored

  • When starting the study, sit down and solve the paper time of the last 2 years. Then analyze those papers for 2 hours. Take a good look at how many questions were solved in the first and second papers, how many remained, and why remained. Note the types of important questions. Make a list of what you gathered, what you gathered, what you didn't gather at all.

  • With this biggest misconception in mind, many non-engineering graduates ignore CSAT and focus on GS. But in the CSAT paper, 50 questions are on passages 5 decision making, 10 puzzle types. Arts and engineering degree holders are equally adept at any of these. Of the remaining 15 questions, non-engineering students can get good marks in practice. Therefore, one should not form an opinion about the subject before studying.

  • The following booklist is important for the MPSC CSAT paper:

    • R S Agrawal- quantitative and verbal non-verbal aptitude
    • Old question papers of MPSC CSAT
    • Arihant publication or any other book for passages
    • Question papers of 3 different classes available in the market
    • Any book should be used as per the requirement of the question paper.
