UKSSSC Preparation tips and tricks

  • Remember the Syllabus:

Before starting any preparation, one must see the syllabus of the concerned exam and remember it by heart. The syllabus gives an idea of what the student has to study to pass the exam. One can make the list of the syllabus and hang it on their wall or somewhere where they will be able to see it every day. It would serve as a constant reminder of what one has to study.

  • Planning:

One can make a plan or strategize the way they want to study. Planning and studying always come in handy. Example: One can make a chart as to what to study, and make a list of the books they’ll study.

One should see which portion of the syllabus has more marks and prepare accordingly. They can also make a list of the books from where they will study. Students can refer to the above booklist for books. They can make a timetable deciding how much to study each day and give themselves a time limit for completing the syllabus.

  • Marking the Progress:

One should also mark the progress. Marking progress boosts the confidence of oneself. It also gives an idea as to how much of the syllabus is remaining and pinpoints one’s weaknesses. To mark progress, one can make a list of the total topics that need to be covered. From there, they can tick mark the ones they have already completed studying.

 

UKSSSC Exam Dates, Fees, Eligibility & Notification

 

  • Revision:

One should make an exhaustive list of books from where they’ll study and stick to them till the end. Gaining too much knowledge from every source available does not help at all in remembering facts. This should be backed with lots of revisions. Revision is crucial for any preparation.

One can make short notes which comes in handy for revisions.

  • Sticking to a few books

This part is crucial for the preparation for any competitive exam. Students refer to multiple books for preparation which ultimately overloads them with information. They forget the basic things that they studied. They also forget about the additional information that they studied. For this reason, students need to make an exhaustive list of books which they will follow sincerely till the end of the preparation.

  • Time Management:

One should also practice time management. This is important if one wants to complete all the questions within the given time limit. It is critical to strike a balance between speed and accuracy. It requires a lot of practice. To practice time management, one must give several mock tests. Tests show students where they stand in their preparation. It also helps one learn time management.

  • Believing in Oneself:

Last but not the least, one has to keep faith in themselves. Hard work is not the only key factor here. Persistence and consistency are complementary to hard work. They’re interdependent. One should have confidence in themselves and continue being persistent and consistent, with a lot of hard work.
