Every exam needs some specific kind of strategies to crack it. For JKPSC, following preparation strategies can work out for a candidate who works tirelessly.
The syllabus must be read, well-understood and analyzed by the Candidate before starting the preparation. It works as a base in future strategies. Every subject must be given equal importance while preparing for the exam. It is suggested that candidates cover every topic at least once during their preparation to avoid blankness during the main Exam.
Before starting to prepare, a proper strategy and framework must be made in mind. Every step must be made according to that framework. Some strategies that can be made are:
Necessary throughout the preparation process. The student must make a daily plan and work according to that. The plan should be to cover the goal. However, it would be suggested that students must take 5-10 minutes to break after a long sitting. The reason behind this is to energize the mind after a long strenuous workout of the brain.
It is the most important part. It helps in identifying your strengths and weaknesses in the real test scenario. It also helps in understanding your potential. Students may also go through some mock test papers available on different websites. However, it would be recommended that they do not waste too much time surfing the internet for the test papers.
Ultimate step. Without revision, every other step is a waste. So while preparing, keep revising on a daily basis, and increase the dose during the final days. It can vary from student to student, but it is recommended that students revise the topics jumping from subject to subject, and not covering the entire subject in one go. This helps in functioning of Brain in an awakened way, as a single subject for a very long time stops impacting the mind effectively.
