BPSC 2021 STUDY PLAN:
A Time table- Analyze your standard long before the exam. Create a well-structured schedule for each day. To successfully crack the BPSC, it is advised that the aspirants start preparing ahead of time.
Learn & Revise- The vast syllabus of the examination can get you anxious. Plan your study method in such a way that you get to revise whatever you have learnt the whole day or week.
Focus on basic concepts- Candidates should be mindful of the country and its significant evolution. It is expected of the candidates to know about the country's and the state's society, culture etc.
Making evident notes- Making quick notes when you're studying helps you the next time you flip your books for revision.
Current Affairs- The examination examines an aspirant's thorough knowledge of the society in which they reside. Learning about international events is also essential, but knowing one's district, state, and country should be considered the foundation for preparation. This provides significant help in serving the nation well accordingly.
Read newspapers- The obsolete idea of keeping one updated through newspapers about what's happening in and around has made a remarkable revival through PSC exams; the aspirants are therefore suggested to look at more than one newspaper a day.
Practicing questions- A crucial task to add to your daily life as an aspirant is practicing previous years' question paper. Solving past year questions might sound like a mundane task, but it is worth the pain. It helps you depict a clear picture of what you are going to approach.
Personality & Communication skills- The interview phase is a very significant part of the examination. Please address your thoughts transiently to the interviewers. Therefore, it is highly recommended to prepare for the interview several times, polishing your communication skills. However, a candidate has to answer all the questions with honesty.
BPSC looks for promising personalities with absolute honesty & a great worldview; we hope you draw yourself up like so. Best wishes!
