How to Prepare for UPSC CSAT Examination 2021?

Leave a Comment

UPSC CSAT is commonly referred to as General Studies-II in the preliminary exam of the UPSC Civil Service exam. Although it is a qualifying paper, you should build an effective preparation strategy to excel in this section. Candidates can also enroll in the best UPSC CSAT Online Coaching to enhance their overall preparation level. Lakhs of candidates apply for this examination every year, but many candidates fail to grab this position because of their weak preparation strategy. It is important for the candidates to give priority to all the sections covered by CSAT as no one can predict the area from which the questions will be asked in the examination. In order to qualify in the CSAT prelims, the candidates will have to secure more than 33% of marks. Thus, it is important for the candidates to know the weightage of each topic and build rock-solid preparation strategies to achieve success in the exam. On that note, let’s discuss the best preparation tips to crack UPSC CSAT Exam.

Know the Syllabus and Exam Pattern

All the aspirants should go through the UPSC CSAT syllabus and exam pattern before starting the exam preparation to prepare only those topics that are asked in the exam. The UPSC CSAT tests the candidate’s Interpersonal Skills, Logical Reasoning, and Analytical Skills, Decision Making, General Mental Ability, Reading Comprehension and Numerical Ability. The UPSC CSAT question paper consists of 80 questions for 200 Marks and the time allotted for the paper is 2 hours. Also, there will be negative markings in the exam.

Strengthen Your English Language Skills

Many aspirants are stressed or worried before the exam because they don’t have an English background or excellent English skills and they fear that this disadvantage may stop them from qualifying in the exam. But they don’t need to worry as the English section can be handled with regular practice and hard work. Candidates are advised to refer to the best grammar book and read newspapers/novels to improve their vocabulary skills, learn new words, sentence correction methods, and grammar usage skills. In addition to this, candidates can also enroll in the best UPSC  IAS GS 2023 Coaching in English as they can learn better under the guidance of a mentor and will also get various study resources for better preparation.

Attempt Mock Tests Regularly

Mock Tests are one of the best sources of preparation for the UPSC CSAT Exam. While attempting the questions of the mock tests, candidates learn time management skills and identify their strengths and weakness in each subject. Candidates should not spend more than three minutes on each question and quickly move on to other questions if they are not able to solve them. They are advised to solve their strength topics first in the actual exam and attempt time-consuming questions at the end. Candidates will be able to recognize their strengths and weaknesses by analyzing their performance in the mock test.


Refer Best Books

Along with the best preparation strategies, the candidates are required to select the best books to crack the UPSC IAS Exam. Cracking the Civil Service Exam is no cakewalk, therefore it becomes important for the candidates to read books based on the latest syllabus of the exam. Feedback and recommendation of the mentors and last year’s toppers can also be considered while choosing the books and study material for the preparation.

Short Notes + Revision is Must

Apart from covering the syllabus at a decided time, candidates should make sure that they maintain notes of all the important formulas, current affairs, shortcuts, and concepts while covering each and every topic of all the subjects. Candidates can quickly revise from the handwritten notes as they don’t have to spend all the time again revising the vast syllabus. This will also help them in remembering all the important pointers of each topic on the examination day without any confusion.

    4 Public Sector Banks Shortlisted for Privatisation

    Leave a Comment
    In a bid to sell state assets and shore up government revenues, the Indian Government has shortlisted 4 mid range Publis Sector Banks for Privatization. Among these four, three banks will be selected for sale in the financial year 2021-22.  The four banks on the shortlist are Bank of Maharashtra, Bank of India, Indian Overseas Bank and the Central Bank of India.
     

    Privatization of the banking sector, which is dominated by state-run behemoths with hundreds of thousands of employees, is politically risky because it could put jobs at risk but Prime Minister Narendra Modi's administration aims to make a start with second-tier banks.

     

    As an initiative, the Government chose mid-range banks because it would be hard to control the negative response from people and unions if it tries to sell the banks like State Bank of India (SBI). Apart from that, the govt needs SBI in-order to make it's schemes reach village level.     

     

    It seems that the government hopes to reduce trade union opposition by selling off banks with fewer employees. As of now around 50 thousand people have been working in Bank of India, 33 thousand in Central Bank of India, 26 in Indian Overseas Bank and 13 thousand in Bank of Maharashtra.  

     

    Experts also say that the government may take steps to privatize more banks in the future based on the reaction of the people on the sale of these 2medium-sized banks.
