Start early: Starting preparing for the NHPC JE RECRUITMENT 2021 examination in the early phase helps you plan your studies & a suitable material, which one must have to crack the examination.

Get thorough with the syllabus & exam pattern: You must go through the exam Syllabus & pattern, as your preparation will be based entirely on these two things. Good knowledge of the exam pattern gives you an idea about how to move ahead with exam preparation.

Know the weightage of your vital subjects: Information about the topic distribution in the question paper is an excellent strategy to be adapted. It helps you know the weightage of strong & weak areas & help you prepare accordingly. You can go through the previous question papers to see the weightage of portions &, consequently, concentrate on those topics which appear to have more questions & weightage in the question paper.

Usage of Reference Books is necessary: Many books are often named for sources by previous toppers, which would help preparation. While the students can use the textbooks for studying, it is recommended that extra books be looked into to boost & make your concepts strong.

Revision is the Principal Keyword: The most critical part of preparing for the NHPC JE RECRUITMENT Exam is often revising. One should not be under any impression that revision will be done once the whole syllabus is finished. It's entirely wrong to revise after studying any topics or concepts or subjects not to forget what was absorbed. The revision will help in the understanding of the topics or concepts & make you more competent. It is also prudent to make notes that you can refer to later near the exam during revision. Also, solve the last 10 years' paper & check with solutions to avoid minor blunders. Doing this contributes highly to your preparation.

Kindly pay attention and keep track of the dates written above. Carefully read about the exam pattern precisely. Remember, you are one step closer to your calling today!
