How to prepare for Gk & Haryana State Gk

General awareness is one of the scoring sections that saves much of the time in exam if one is prepared well for it. You need to devote at least 1-1.5 hours daily to this subject. For preparing this section, you need to go through the whole syllabus once. Going through the whole syllabus means going through each and every detail of it. After going through the whole syllabus, you need to identify the areas from where large volume of questions are asked. For this, you can go through previous year papers of various examinations. This will help you save time during revision process as large chunk of information which is irrelevant or from where not many questions are asked will get eliminated during the process and you can study selectively for your examination which will help you focus for long term.

How to prepare for Maths

Maths is another scoring section which requires a lot of practice. You can devote 2-3 hours daily to this subject as per your relevance. There is no other short cut to master this section then practicing a lot of questions from different areas. You can start by going through the basic concepts of each and every topic and testing the same concepts by practicing a variety of questions. This will help you gain confidence on the topics. Having worked on the concepts, you need to target the other barrier which is speed. A lot of candidates run behind in the competition due to lack of speed. You can achieve speed by going through various time bound quizzes and mocks available on our site. 

How to prepare for Science

In order to prepare for Science, you need to go through NCERT’s starting from grade 8th to 10th. You can prepare your own notes and go through them on regular basis. You can also take help from BYJU’S Exam Prep science notes on various topics. Having gone through the syllabus once, you can start taking quizzes on specific topics and miscellaneous topics to boost your knowledge on that subject. Analysing the mock tests and quizzes will also let you know about the weak topics that requires attention. In this manner, everytime you take test you will come across 2-3 topics at which you will get stuck. Note down all such topics and revise them again. In this way, you can schedule your revision process. 

How to Prepare for English/Hindi

In order to prepare for language you need to divide it into two sections namely, Grammar and Vocabulary.  Grammar section for both the languages can be tackled by going through the basic concepts of the Grammar. While going through the various topics of Grammar, one must lay more stress on topics like Tenses, Verbs, Prepositions and Subject Verb Agreement. Merely learning the rules of Grammar and not practicing questions will take your preparation back to square one. Therefore, it becomes important that you practice a lot of questions to know about the applicability of the rules. Now lets come to the vocabulary part which needs to be practiced along with the grammar part on daily basis. To start with, you can take down 10-15 words from any newspaper and find their meaning along with synonyms and antonyms and their usage in the sentence. Apart from the preparation perspective, going through newspaper is good habit and will reward you in the long run. If you do not test your knowledge you will not know where you are lacking, therefore it becomes imperative to take as much quizzes and mock tests as you can. You can spearhead your preparation by referring to various quizzes and mock tests on our site. 

How to Prepare for Reasoning Section

Reasoning Section is one of the easiest section that will reward you the most than any other section in the examination. In order to prepare for this section, you need to go through the syllabus once and start by practicing questions on each topic daily. Identify the topics at which you stuck while attempting the quizzes and mocks. Note down those topics and practice as much questions as you can until you become comfortable with the topic.
