Study Plan

  1. Solve previous year papers- first and foremost, pick one or more unsolved previous years' question papers, each of all subjects. 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.
  2. 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 TSPSC, quality of study is favoured over the quantity of study.
  3. Test yourselves- consider engaging in mock tests and current affairs. Mock tests will help you evaluate your preparation standard. The literal key to success lies in solving more and more questions from the previous year and mock tests.
  4. Time Management- Managing time in a well-structured manner is a significant job, both before and after you crack any competitive exam. Practice time management accordingly.

Wish you the very best for your exam. Prepare well knowing time waits for none, so use it wisely, and if you're afraid of the results, then as the quote says, "In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure."
