1. Power of previous year paper

3. Macro & Micro timetables: By this, we mean never make a rigid timetable with many stringent aspects of covering subtopics within a particular time frame of minutes. Be flexible yet goal-oriented. Make a study plan in such a manner that 2-3 revisions are ensured.
4. Practice Mock Test: This is the most important part of the preparation journey. Giving mocks just not check your current knowledge but also helps to identify your key mistakes. If possible, do attempt sectional tests per day; do not merely keep covering the syllabus. Try to analyze RPSC RAS mocks and identify your week areas and work on them.
5. Time Management: Develop a habit of reading, studying, and memorizing the theoretical aspects but do not forget to retain them in long-term memory. Remember, the RPSC RAS examination is a year-long cycle and candidates need to recall and express the learning after 12 months sometimes. So plan your things accordingly.
6. Make a habit of writing notes: Keeping notes and revising through the notes helps revise better. Self-made notes are so handy that you can easily revise. It also helps to retain and recall in a better way, and in the examination gives an edge.
7. Revision: After completing 60 - 70% of the RPSC RAS exam syllabus, a candidate is advised to opt for simulated test series, meaning attempting full-length tests. So, to develop that understanding and practice, learn by attempting the mocks in real exam-like situations. Remember revision is the key to success.
