In order to score well in prelims, civil services aspirants can thoroughly prepare for some topics that are quite straightforward and easy to score. Most of them involve light reading of well-organised resources on a regular basis.
Some of them include questions that:
· are based on statistics
· are map based
· related to polity and current affairs
· test comprehension and decision making skills
Do you commute for long hours to your office in a bus? Do you travel frequently? Then carry a copy of Manorama Year book and a small pocket notebook to make important notes. You can spend about 20 minutes after lunch to just glance through the topics and even prepare flash cards.
Some of the general knowledge topics are quite tedious to read and hence, schedule a time for preparing for these while you are at home. Otherwise, you can keep browsing through the latest headlines to keep yourself updated about the current affairs.
Make it a point to practice sample tests regularly from the comprehensive question bank at Indiancivils.com and attempt questions that have appeared in the previous years. You may also contact our faculty for any further queries or clarifications while preparing for CSAT (Prelims).
