Know Selection Process & Exam Pattern
Please make sure you fully comprehend the exam format before continuing. Please keep in mind that the merit part has several sections that call for extra concentration.
|Section||No. of Questions||Total Marks||Time Duration|
|Reasoning||20||20||Total time: 120 Minutes|
|Economic & Social Issues||40||40|
|Agriculture & Rural Development (with a special focus on Rural India)||40||40|
i) Qualifying Section & Merit Section - Apart from General Awareness, Economics & Social Issues, Agriculture & Rural Development all other subjects are qualifying in nature.
ii) The only factor used to choose candidates for the next phase will be their performance in the merit sections. The written test, followed by the interview and/or group discussion, would serve as the foundation for the final selection.
Now in order to prepare for these topics and score well. One should always keep in mind some key tools. These are:
1. Time Management: Proper utilization of time is the sure shot success mantra. Time management accompanied by Question selection is crucial for success in the exam. You are not bound to solve all questions.
Always look for questions in each part that can be answered quickly. Avoid getting stuck on any questions, and don't spend too much time on any one question.
2. Speed & Accuracy: In this exam, accuracy and speed are of utmost importance. Focus on accuracy and quickness to perform well in the Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning section.
For increasing speed, solve easier questions first and mark the tough ones for the left time.
Spending too much time on a single question will tend to reduce your speed, so if you are not able to solve it within 1 minute then move on.
