Since there have been many changes in the MPPSC pattern for the last three exams, the syllabus has also undergone many changes. Hence it is advisable to go for something other than an optional syllabus. Hard work, or clever work and efficient strategies, should be followed.

If you want to crack this exam, follow the MPPSC prelims strategy. As per this strategy, you need to prepare yourself dedicatedly for six months for successful results.

Since the MPPSC exam syllabus tends to be extensive, the study should be more comprehensive in concept and less in-depth.

How To Start With The Prelims Strategy Preparation?

To start the preparation, you must thoroughly review the entire syllabus. Give sufficient time to each topic. Start by studying the NCERT from classes 6 to 12 of all the subjects.

You can start with the subjects that you have a better grasp on. This helps in building up your confidence and motivation. Once you are confident with your study, the next stage is to review books by good authors for every subject.

Go through the questions and mark up any new information that needs to be present in your NCERTs. Current affairs play a significant role in ICS and all state PSCs. Read the daily newspaper and keep up with current affairs through the internet or magazines.

Regular tests are an efficient method to analyze mistakes and adjust to the limited time. This makes your brain more active and enhances your on-spot problem-solving abilities. One should be efficient, disciplined, and, most importantly, calm to crack the MPPSC exams easily.

For revision purposes, devote about 1-2 hours to brush up on your knowledge of current affairs and also invest a reasonable amount of time practicing your writing. If you want a quick revision, make it a habit to keep a pocket diary with essential points.
