Government jobs seem to have gained their appeal back as the most sought after jobs, all thanks to the job security they come with. As unemployment rates and the number of people laid off by corporations across the country.
More and more job seekers and graduates are flocking to take Government exams such as the IBPS PO, SSC CHSL, SBI PO, SSC CGL, UPSC etc. The downside to this is that the competition for the limited number of openings is very high.
If you are aspiring for a Government job then you are going to need all the help you can get. In this article, we will go over some of the sure-shot strategies that will give you a competitive edge over the others.
Top 6 Best tips to prepare for Government Job Exams
#1 The application process for most exams can be tedious. It makes sense to get it over with as soon as possible and set reminders for all the important dates – day on which the admit card would be released, prelims/ mains exam date, result in announcement et
For instance, if you are appearing for the Bihar TET exam then be aware of all the important dates such as the date on which the Bihar TET admit card can be downloaded and the date on which Bihar TET result would be announced. This will help you plan in advance and save you from the last-minute hassle.
#2 As clichéd as it may sound, time management will probably decide whether you clear the exam or lose 3-4 months of the year with nothing to show for the time spent. You will only have 2-3 months from the day of the notification to the day of the exam. Come up with a realistic study plan that accounts for all topics across subjects.
Your study plans should also include breaks at periodic intervals and 2-3 weeks for revision and solving mock tests. Save the mock frenzy for the end. The last few weeks before the exam should be utilized for this. Solving mock tests and previous year papers will not only show you where you stand but also boost your confidence.
#3 As the saying goes, Eat that live frog first! If you cover the toughest topics and cement your understanding of the topics you are weakest at then you can go through the rest of the topics knowing the worst is already behind you. While it helps to capitalize on your strengths, it doesn’t make sense to waste precious time-solving hundreds of questions from topics that you are good at.
#4 Make reading newspapers a habit. Almost all Government exams have a general awareness section as part of the selection process. You will have to keep current with the affairs of the state/ country depending on which exam you are preparing for. Reading newspapers religiously will also help you improve your reading speed, ability to comprehend and your language skills.
#5 Prepare notes for every topic you cover. Let’s face it – you are going to forget some crucial aspects of a topic or that all-important formula. You will have to revise the topic or jog your memory. Systematically maintained notes will save you a lot of time in the run-up to the exam.
#6 Eat and sleep well. Try to get in at least 30 minutes of exercise and meditation every day. This will help you stay motivated. While you focus on just studying and revising, it is easy to forget that all the prep will take a huge toll on your physical and mental health.
Even a brief period of illness could derail your preparation significantly so it is important to eat your greens and get at least 7 hours of quality sleep every day.
