How to Prepare GK for RRB Group D?

To score the maximum marks possible, candidates should follow RRB Group D preparation tips. These tips will help candidates achieve efficiency and cover maximum topics in minimum time. We have stated some of the expert tips to prepare for the RRB Group D GK section.

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Most of the candidates study from outdated study material such as books, PDFs, online notes, etc., and end up marking the wrong answer in the actual exam.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 RRB Group D mock tests, you can practice time management, evaluate your strong and weak areas and work accordingly.
