Tips for cracking the UPSSSC exams

  • Prepare the General Knowledge Section thoroughly. Read all the relevant information on General Knowledge topics such as science, politics, geography etc.
  • Time Management is crucial in any competitive exam. The time allotted for the exam is very little with respect to the number of questions. Hence, practice time management and make sure your calculations are fast and correct.
  • Continuously revise after every study. Revision helps you remember important points. If you don't revise, you will ultimately start forgetting everything you have studied, and you won't be able to remember it during the exam.
  • Make a study time table and follow it strictly. Choose a quiet place for studying to avoid any disturbances.
  • Keep yourself healthy. Eat healthy food and get ample sleep. A healthy body equals a healthy mind.
