APPSC GROUP II STUDY PLAN:
- Solve previous year papers- first and foremost, pick one or more unsolved last years' question papers. Try solving them by having yourself the time limit which you are getting in the examination. The main objective of doing this is that aspirants will identify their weak & strong areas. Besides, this will also help you get used to the APPSC exam paper pattern.
- Quality Study- It is suggested to not cramp yourself with a massive bulk of study material from multiple sources. This causes you to end up studying nothing instead. Please remember, in competitive exams like APPSC, quality of study is favored over the quantity of study.
- Test yourselves- consider engaging in mock tests and current affairs. They help you to excuse extensive study. The literal key to success lies in solving more and more questions from the previous year and mock tests.
- Time Management- Managing time in a well-structured manner is a significant job, both before and after you crack any competitive exam. Let us suppose, reading a question, comprehending and solving at least takes 50 seconds. Practice time management accordingly.
Remember to take care of your health at all times; it is crucial to bring you closer to establishing your dream career. We are glad to be a part of your APPSC journey, best wishes!
