  1. Analyze the syllabus thoroughly: There are many situations where students do not follow the syllabus strictly & waste a lot of their time studying something not included in the designated syllabus. Covering your entire syllabus will not only help you in saving your time but will also prepare you for the worst. So, sit down & 'study' your syllabus & mark all the important topics & chapters in your study materials.
  2. Do not underestimate the Hindi paper: Candidates appearing for the exam have a divided approach to the Hindi paper. One section of candidates believes that the paper is significantly less scoring & therefore, it is not especially useful to put so much effort & time. The other section of candidates believes that it is too easy to give a lot of time to it. In both cases, the lack of time allotted to this paper can hamper your overall score in the Main Exam. The level of General Hindi shall be based on your last educational qualification & will carry 200 marks. Keep these things in remembrance & do not save items for the last moment.
  3. Reading newspapers daily: Current events constitute a significant section in the BPSSC PI recruitment examination syllabus. What you must do is keep yourself updated about the happenings around the world & the country daily. Read newspapers daily, cover all critical sections- from important local, national, to international news.
  4. Tackle mathematics syllabus carefully: Mathematics is one of the several scoring aspects of this examination. The syllabus for mathematics is not very lengthy &, therefore, can be practised daily. Solving examples & exercises from the best books can help you score a lot.
  5. Power of previous year's question paper: Working out Bihar Police SI previous question papers can upgrade your overall performance to a higher level. Many keep last year's question papers for later, but this approach is entirely wrong. As you complete your syllabus, you should simultaneously solve the previous year's question papers. Solving these will give you a rough idea about the exam pattern & the study areas that are usually focused on. Time management is also exercised when you make it a habit of solving previous question papers.
  6. Take as many mock tests as possible: Mock tests are another great way of ensuring time management & getting a good hang of the exam syllabus & pattern.
  7. Give enough emphasis to physical activities & health: Since the ultimate recruitment is also based on a physical test, you should not stress & place yourself in a vulnerable situation, making you unwell. Eat healthily, seek out time for physical activities & practice long jumps, high jumps, shot put throw, 1-mile run & 1 kilometre.

We hope we could provide the best of every information regarding the BIHAR POLICE SI RECRUITMENT 2021 Examination. Do not let anything distract you know, be determined and smart!
