  • Make short notes of the given examples with a colored pen
  • Keep creating drawings and sketches
  • Keep your sentences short. Use bullet points and numbered lists

General Studies 

4 Hr


MCQ Practice



Arithmetic and Reasoning Practice


6. How many hours to study?

  • Now, depending on the individual, the time required to grasp a concept varies. It is generally advised that eight hours of study and 2 hours of solving practice set is crucial if a candidate is preparing full-time. If he/she is a working professional diligently study hours can be allocated on the weekends or late evening or morning hours, whatever suits.

7. To make revisions

  •  Since the curriculum is vast, subject matter needs to be reviewed from time to time 
  • Students should make sure that their review plan is consistent with their study plan. This means that when a student sits down to study a subject, he should not forget to review the previous subjects. For example, if a student spends 1 hour on a particular subject, they should be given 10-15 minutes for repetition.

In this way, you can plan for the WBCS Preliminary 2022. Make proper planning and achieve success in the upcoming examination
