Every year, when the UPSC CDS result is announced, the Commission announces the cut-offs for various categories. Those who score at or above the cut-offs advance to the next round. The minimum qualifying percentage required in each subject is 20%.
Here, I am sharing three essential tips with you for your exam preparation in the last few days:
In order to ace the exam, you should keep up with current events, read English newspapers, and solve previous year's question papers.
Benefits of Daily reading of an English newspaper – Any national English newspaper will help you to improve your analytical skills. This will also improve your national and global awareness, as well as your vocabulary.
Attempting at least two previous-year papers daily– Instead of theory revision, the final 10 – 15 days should be spent solving UPSC CDS full-length mock tests and UPSC CDS 2022 previous-year papers. This will allow you to gain a better understanding of the pattern of the exam, syllabus, and help in the management of time. Check the tentative score at the end of each Mock Test that you attempt online. I would recommend to you a genuine website Testwale.com for attempting Free CDS Mock Tests. Their Test Series are designed by the subject matter experts and will help you analyse your preparedness.
Revising Current Affairs from various sources: As I mentioned above the benefit of taking the mock tests, you can also revise the current events by attempting Daily short quizzes of Current Affairs at Testwale.
Apart from the tips I mentioned above, there are some important tips to keep in mind while preparing:
A thorough understanding of the syllabus will aid you in your CDS preparation
Give preference to basic concepts over other formulas; they will mostly be basic Topics.
Choose the topics with the most weightage.
'Practice makes a man perfect,' as the saying goes, so practise, practise, practise as much as you can…
Good Luck with the Exam Day!
