RRB NTPC General Awareness: Tips for Preparation

Read the newspaper daily

  • Make daily reading of newspapers a habit. Read at least two national journals every day.
  • Make notes of important events around the world, with a special focus on India.
  • If you do not want to take notes, keep a newspaper scrapbook and consult it regularly.

Familiarize yourself with the journals

  • Magazines such as Pratiyogita Darpan and Competition Success Review can greatly help unravel the General Awareness section.
  • These magazines will not only help you gain access to recent developments in India and the world but will also make it easier for you to take notes.

Go through Previous Year Papers

  • It is important to resolve questions from previous years. Do not do this because you feel the question will be repeated.
  • The question will never happen again. However, the "type" of questions will be repeated.
  • Asking questions on the exam should not make you feel like your first time. You should be familiar with the type of questions asked.
  • Last year's work resolution helps to do that.

Read the annual magazine regularly

  • Annual books, such as Manorma, help present succinct materials succinctly, making preparation for general awareness convenient.
  • Annual books also help save a lot of time. Remember, however, that reading a book from last year will not help.
  • The consistency of reading during preparation will be helpful.

Plan, practice and revise

  • Everyone preparing for this exam should be thoroughly familiar with the curriculum.
  • Candidates need to know the areas of strength and weakness to improve the former and improvise the latter.
  • Make a weekly schedule.
  • Master the topics one by one, then move to the next.
  • The more you practice, the more you can perform in the exam.

Do more and more mock tests

  • Start giving mock tests, in terms of sections as well as complete tests, and analyze your results on each test.
  • May you have a brief understanding of your strengths and weaknesses.
  • And develop a learning plan to devote more time to your weaknesses.
  • It would be beneficial for you not only for this but also for other exams as well.
