8 Must-Follow Tips to prepare for cgpsc exam
1.Don’t wait for the notification
The notification of cgpsc exam is generally published in the month of october or november. Instead for waiting of the notification you can start preparing for the exam if you have made your mind to clear it.
For example, the final students and graduated students give this exam for the first time. If you have made your mind then just download the old syllabus , purchase study materials and start preparing.
In the month of august mostly all final year students get their result so don’t wait for the official notification instead if you cover any one of the subject the burden will be less for you. Also if there is change in the syllabus it will be very minor. For the major changes in the syllabus the CGPSC will inform you months before.
2. Read The Syllabus Carefully
Before you study anything please look at the official notification or syllabus carefully. In the syllabus all the topics are given points wise so study only those which has been asked for the exam point of view.
The CGPSC Board take various class A and B exams so there is are lot of difference among each exam syllabus. Mostly General Studies syllabus is same is every exam which is Paper 1 and Paper 2 can be realted to your post you choose for.
Also, there is no book source is mentioned in the notification so you have to get the best and authentic book sources to get to the top. You can take the help of toppers as they have shared the book info in the several blogs and youtube videos.
3. Get The Best Books
To prepare for CGPSC exam there are almost 5-6 books available in the market for each subject. Many aspirants get confused while purchasing a book that he has some other book and his/her friend a different book for the same subject.
Don’t worry about the exam if you have Vrihad Sandarbh book and if your friend has Samagra Chattisgarh Book it does not mean that one is better than the other. Both the book has nice content and information in it and doesn’t mean that it will affect your result or something.
The main thing here is to stick to any one book and read it through till the end. Never go for mixing up two of the book because rather than making your doubts clear it will confuse you more.
4. Download the Surveys
The data from various survays done by the government are most important to prepare for cgpsc exam. The MCQ type paper has lot of factual question asked directly from the economic survey.
many aspirants don’t focus on reading all those surveys and due that they find giving very hard. The economic survey and other surveys like forest, agriculture and etc. are very important to read.
You can either download the from the website or buy them from any government library. In a lot of the books, some time and important data are given incorrect so to cross-check you can use surveys to verify your answer.

5. Make Notes And Try To Make Shorter.
While you prepare for cgpsc exam making notes is an important step to make thing easier. As per my point of view, you cannot clear any exam without making your own notes.
Notes help us in many ways such as it clear the doubts, help us while we revise anything, saves our time. When you start making notes don’t worry about the handwriting and presentation because only you will read them.
Also, make your notes on blank pages or A4 pages and leave some space to update it if you found anything new to a particular topic. You can also shorten your notes if you feel you know about several things.
6. Make A Plan And Stick To It.
Many people will say that to clear any competitive exam you have to study for long hours like 9-10 hours daily. But to prepare for cgpsc exam or any exam it’s up to an individual that how quickly he/she understand a topic.
Many of us take hours to clear a particular topics and some topics we only take 15-20 minutes to clear. Every individual has different mindset and their catching power also vary from each other.
So that’s why to make a plan to clear your topic rather than study for long hours. you may study 3 subjects daily but not more than that. Also, make shorter aims to read during the starting of your preparation. Later you can increase your study hours.
7. Get Old Question Papers
If you have started you to prepare for cgpsc exam then don’t miss to get the old question papers. The previous year’s question papers help a lot while you prepare for the exams.
The old question papers help us to get ideas about the questions that were asked in the exam. Also Solving some model question papers will help you during the exams to solve them accuratly.
Before a month or two you should also give mock tests to improve your efficiency. With the mock test, you will gain confidence and solve questions without any problems in the main exam.
The most important part to prepare for CGPSC exam. As soon as you read any topic, first of all, revise the day or 1 hour later after you have completed that particular topic.
Later onwards you should revise that topic after one day, then one week and lastly after one month. I bet you if you follow this strategy there is no way that you will forget anything during the exam.
During the revision never use your books always take the help of your notes with that you can cover the topics easily.
