So everyone tries to do their best and that is the thing which helps them to get success. Here we will discuss about some tips and tricks that you should follow to get positive result.

At present, to do job not only in the PSC, but also in institutions, security agencies and at all local levels, we have to pass the examination conducted by Public Service Commission. Therefore, there is a lot of competition in the Public Service Commission. There is also faith in the commission based on the belief that it will be fair.

Best way to pass the PSC exam

First of all, before you take the PSC exam, you must have faith and confidence that if you work hard and move forward, you will succeed. Believe that all examx conducted by the PSC are impartial.

Second, there is a difference between the PSC exam and other exams. Bringing 60 percent elsewhere is considered a very good pass. Even if the students pass, that is not enough for the Public Service Commission.

If 10 people are demanded in the advertisement and there are 10 people who bring 90%, pass the exam and remaining who brings less than 90%, fails. So the competition is high. In order to pass the PSC, one has to work hard from many angles on the way of reading, the way of memorizing what has read and the way of writing.

The third but most important thing is the theme. Everything can be arranged once the subject matter is mastered. You can be successful if you manage everything by making yourself proficient in the subject.

You should be able to write your preparation in the answer sheet before going for the exam. And, if you can do the right thing and cover everything you ask for, you will definitely pass the PSC exam.

What should you read?

Make the curriculum the very basis for that. All questions are asked based on the syllabus. While reading, read the topics related to the curriculum keeping in mind the contemporary topics, the topics that come up in daily practice keeping in mind both theoretical and practical aspects. Because the question seeks both theoretical and practical answers.

What is the basis of the theoretical background of the subject in question? Why couldn’t it be implemented? What are the problems? What are the solutions to the problem? You should be able to answer that way.

You don’t read many books. References don’t have to be read much. If you need to read on a subject and add to it, it is better to read another book. It also unites the mind. If you start reading a variety of subjects, your mind will be zigzagged. Therefore, it is better to study the same subject or make a note in your own way even if you have read a lot.

Contemporary national and international issues need to be kept in mind. When writing, you should not always write long stories. Many students feel that the answer to the question is their own and that they write a lot in their own way. What exactly was the question asked? The answer should be given only on the basis of the question seeks an answer. We come up with a matching text. The test also seems to be good but the answer to the question may not be correct.

Another thing is that if a question is of 10 integers, it may also have fragments. If the question is asked in 4 sections, the integer of each is 2.5. You wrote only 2 part answers and only 5 points. No matter how well you do it, 3 numbers will come. That’s 3 out of 10. Therefore, all sections should be included equally.

Even a handwriting also has a role in PSC exam. If your handwriting is good, it will be easy for the examiner. Good and clear handwriting attract the mind of the examiner.

Another important thing for PSC Examinee is time management. If you can touch all the questions and write them keeping in mind the questions and the given time, it will have a positive effect on the results. When there is no time management, even if a question is very good, if a question is left out, it does not do well. This issue should also be taken care of.

People who have been successful in writing do not make much difference in matters related to the interview. And less likely to be thrown away. So focus as much as you can on the written test.

  • The format of the answer can be divided into three parts by introduction section, main section and conclusion.

Writing the definition in this way reflects its originality as well as its authenticity.

  • Don’t pretend like something you don’t know. Confidently tell whatever you know. Don’s say like I have not studied this subject.
  • Turn the interview to a topic that you find easier, as you can add other questions based on the answers you give. For example: What do you like to do? If you say that I like to make computer programs, you may be asked many other questions about computer programs. So be aware of such issues.
  • During the interview, go and study by understanding the current national and international developments.
  • Don’t try to influence the interviewer. Don’t say like I have used source/force, you have to pass me, if you have mercy, etc. but you can add up something like I will be successful according to the qualification system.
