                How to study

It is important to keep your preparation SMART and also to be in RIGHT TIME. Knowing the above, you can start your preparation in a smarter way. What it means by completing in Right Time? TNPSC Group 1 exam has a different aspect of preparation than other tnpsc exams. So, knowing that and preparing in a better way will let you to complete your preparation in Right Time so that you can achieve a Top Rank.

Group 1 doesn’t have a second paper in prelims like General Tamil (or) General English (as in Group 2, Group 2A, Group 3, Group 4 etc). Also prelims will have 200 questions.

The Mains (written exam) Paper of Group 1 has three papers and it has different preparation strategy as it is fully written exam. Finally the Interview and Mains mark will be taken for the merit list.

So, start your preparation as both for Prelims and Mains (with written practice) so that, you can complete your tnpsc group 1 preparation in RIGHT TIME so as to achieve a top rank. (We have covered how to do this in under How to Study sub-heading below)

Aptitude and Logical Reasoning

It is important to note that, Aptitude and Reasoning alone have 50 questions (75 marks). So give much importance to aptitude and reasoning also (we have seen many tnpsc aspirants not giving importance to Aptitude and Reasoning, hence worth mentioning).

TNPSC has given a clear cut syllabus for above topics. It is important to know from where to study those topics. The breakup of Syllabus and detailed analysis to study those syllabus topics is given below.

TNPSC Group 1 Mains Exam Pattern:

Paper I                                                  – 300 Marks (3 Hours)

Since TNPSC Group 1 Mains is a written exam, much writing practice is needed to get through this exam. As much you study for this exam, as much you should be able to write in the exam paper. If you have studied and completed everything but have no written practice, then you CANNOT (sorry to say this) retain all answers in your exam paper. Our preparation strategy will guide you to have written practice easily and effectively along with your Group 1 mains study.

The importance of Writing Practice is that, First and Foremost it will improve your memory to remember and get the answer in the exam hall. Since Mains is not an objective type, it is very much important to remember the answers by yourself, as you cannot just choose the answers as like Prelims.

Writing practice will improve your speed of writing in the exam hall. Remember that, one have to answer for 300 Marks in 3 hours. Practically, an aspirant can write for the first 40 minutes effectively in good handwriting in good speed. After that, hands will pain and hence the speed and hand writing will be affected (though handwriting is not important in tnpsc written exam, it should be legible for the invigilator to correct your paper). It will take nearly another 1 hour to analyse that, your speed has reduced and you need to attend more questions.  Finally one will end up in not attending all the questions.

To avoid all these, do written practice regularly and definitely it will make you to stand out than others (as we have already experienced with this).

TNPSC Group 1 Mains questions ranges from 3 Marks to 30 Marks, so it is important to be able to write a question as a 3 mark and also as an 30 mark (see example below). So, we have made the written practice to be done first directly from the samacheer book back questions and then to the level of mock tests. In the preparation strategy under the “Question Practice” column, we have given the chapters to be covered from samacheer for written practice for that particular tnpsc group 1 mains syllabus topics.

Note:  TNPSC is directly asking mains written questions from Samacheer Book Back.

Example

                Write about Indus Valley Civilization? (3 Marks)

                What is the significance of Indus Valley Civilization? Also, explain it’s special features and how it ended. (30 Marks)

How to Study

By going through above “What to Study” and “Where to Study”, you might have got an idea about how to prepare for TNPSC Group 1 exam easily. Here we will see some of the important approach for completing the above syllabus.

Buy Online Lucent’s General Knowledge book

It is important to note that, some topics covers both in Prelims and Mains, as we have already shown above. First complete those topics which are similar to Prelims and Mains. Remember that, our approach is Prelims cum Mains (studying prelims and mains integrated). But there is also time after Prelims to prepare much for Mains. So, immediate concentration is for TNPSC Group 1 Prelims exam. If we complete the prelims topics alone, it will cover nearly 60 – 70% of Mains topics too.

It is very very important to go with the daily current affairs. We suggest you to read day to day current affairs rather than any monthly compilation magazine. We too publish the Current Affairs Monthly compilation in our www.tnpsc.academy so as to enable the aspirants to revise for the month wise. If you only study monthly compilation, rather than day to day current affairs, then you need to study two times for both Prelims and Mains. Do remember that, Current Affairs for Mains is different as it is a written exam. So, the current affairs should have explanations and backgrounds so as to enable us to write in the exam. For this reason, our current affairs are given like that @ www.tnpsc.academy/current-affairs/ .

Prepare for Aptitude and Mental ability daily at least for 1 to 2 hrs (as per your need). Since Aptitude and Mental ability covers 1/4th part in TNPSC Group 1 Prelims, much importance is need to be given for it.

The integrated Prelims cum Mains approach for TNPSC Group 1 exam is that, as you prepare for Prelims, you can simultaneously do writing practice for the Main exam too. Take those topics that we have shown as both for Prelims and Mains, after studying those topics for prelims, do writing practice for the same topics. Remember that, writing practice is needed daily to improve your mark and get a top rank in tnpsc group 1 exam, as we have stated above.

Just take the Samacheer book back questions and do writing practice. It is very important to note that, TNPSC is asking directly or indirectly from the Samacheer book back questions. So practice those questions for the topics so as to cover the entire syllabus.

 If we analyse the TNPSC previous Group 1 mains question papers, we will get the below exam pattern.

Paper I:  

Section – A:  Very Short Answer Type (not exceeding 30 words)

Questions: 30 out of 35 (5 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 3 Marks. Total: 30×3 = 90 Marks for Section A.

 

Section – B:  Brief Answer Type (not exceeding 120 words)

Questions: 15 out of 18 (3 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 8 Marks. Total: 15×8 = 120 Marks for Section B.

 

Section – C:  Detailed Answer Type (not exceeding 250 words)

Questions: 6 out of 9 (3 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 15 Marks. Total: 6×15 = 90 Marks for Section C.

Also Note that, Each section will have questions given under Unit I, Unit II, Unit III as given in the Syllabus. In the Section C, it is important that, you have to Choose atleast one question from each unit.

 

Paper II:  (Same like Paper I above)

Section – A:  Very Short Answer Type (not exceeding 30 words)

Questions: 30 out of 35 (5 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 3 Marks. Total: 30×3 = 90 Marks for Section A.

 

Section – B:  Brief Answer Type (not exceeding 120 words)

Questions: 15 out of 18 (3 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 8 Marks. Total: 15×8 = 120 Marks for Section B.

 

Section – C:  Detailed Answer Type (not exceeding 250 words)

Questions: 6 out of 9 (3 choice)

Paper III: 

 

Section – A:  Very Short Answer Type (not exceeding 30 words)

Questions: 30 out of 35 (5 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 3 Marks. Total: 30×3 = 90 Marks for Section A.

 

Section – B:  Brief Answer Type (not exceeding 120 words)

Questions: 15 out of 18 (3 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 8 Marks. Total: 15×8 = 120 Marks for Section B.

 

Section – C:  Detailed Answer Type (not exceeding 250 words)

Questions: 2 out of 3 (1 choice)

Marks : Each question carries 15 Marks. Total: 2×15 = 30 Marks for Section C.

 

Section – D:  Essay (not exceeding 500 words)

Questions: 2 out of 4 Questions (Either or choice)

Marks : Each question carries 30 Marks. Total: 2×30 = 60 Marks for Section D.

 

Also Note that, Each section will have questions given under Unit I, Unit II, Unit III as given in the Syllabus.

Analysis: So, you need to practice questions to write as 3 Marks, 8 Marks, 15 Marks or 30 Marks (for Paper III alone). This is also one of the reasons why we have suggested going with Samacheer book back questions as you can practice questions for different methods.

TNPSC Group 1 Mains will be conducted as one paper per day. So, you need to write for 3 hrs (300 marks) in a day. The Answer Sheet will have space for writing the answer. IF you take Section A, space will be allocated for 30 questions equally. One cannot write more than the space provided.

It is not needed to fill all the space given for each question. Many aspirants will intend to fill all the space with content for a single question and then they will finally end up without attending some questions in the last. Just write the answers judiciously. Don’t intend to fill the page for each question, the time will not be enough for that.

You can get a top rank in TNPSC Group 1. Yes you can. We believe. If others can do, why can’t YOU!

 

Go through the TNPSC Syllabus and topics oriented study materials. If possible, take a print out of the above and paste it in your wall.

Dedicate judicious time for your preparation. Start with the Current Affairs. It doesn’t matters where you are in the preparation, start with that day current affairs. If you have left behind some current affairs, allocate different time for that.

Allocate time for Aptitude and Mental ability on each day (Reminder: 50/200 questions in Prelims is Aptitude and Mental Ability).

Study the Prelims topics from the study materials as given above. Constantly have writing practice for those also (30 min to 1 hr per day is Good). You can leave the writing practice and allocate that time for Prelims preparation if you wish. Because, there will be time for writing practice after prelims.

Do well the Exam and Leave the rest with TNPSC. Let the Results speaks about You.

All The Best...!
