Focus areas:

To succeed in this exam, you must have good knowledge of current affairs and have strong reasoning and numerical abilities. You should also focus on Hindi Grammar as it is a very crucial aspect in your written exam which will help you secure a good rank. 

Get ready with Smart Schedule:

 Even though the exam date is not announced by the board, you should start preparing. The main challenge of the UP Police Constable exam is that its syllabus is very vast, and a lot of facts, concepts, formulae and information must be remembered during the preparation period. For this, you must divide your preparation into 3 parts, i.e. 7 days, 15 days and 21 days. 

To ace this exam, you must be well versed in everything from Indian History to World Geography. So, the best way to prepare for the exam is to prepare a study schedule and follow it on a daily basis. 

Analyse the entire syllabus:

Before you sink into a sea of doubts, you must understand the syllabus. Ensure that you divide your syllabus in such details that not even a single topic is missed. If you have earmarked a week for Indian History, divide it into topics based on dates or political events. This is just an example; You should do this for each category. This will help you later when you start revising. Check out some of the best books available in the market for exam preparation and stick to one book for each subject as changing books will lead to confusion. Apart from the books, you are used to, don't forget to solve the previous year's questions. We never know that the questions practised in the previous years section, may be also repeated in the upcoming exam. Hence, this formula can boost our preparation in a better way than others. Once you complete the syllabus, you should practise while revising. 

Strengthen your General Awareness:

 Every day, newspapers provide you with the latest news. There is no better habit than reading the newspaper every day. You should be aware about all current events at the national and international level, as well as a wide range of topics from politics to business and sports.

Revise what you have learnt so far:

Whenever you study, study by making points. This will make it very easy for you to revise especially when there are a few days left in the exam. Therefore, the answers to the questions should always be ready or memorised by making points. Once you have completed the syllabus, start revising to review what you have learned over the past few months. It's also a time to focus on your shortcomings. Don't let one weak subject deter you from boosting your overall score on the written test. Once you have studied a particular topic, start revising what you have learned. You can also revise through the UP Constable Online Mock Test available on our website.

Don't burden yourself too much:

You must take 2 hours off once a week. If you study day and night it can cause you to suffer  immense mental pressure. This will do no good to you. So on weekends, you should take some time off and do your favourite thing like watching  movies of your choice, you can go for a walk, enjoy yourself with your friends etc. Also, don't forget to eat well and sleep properly as your physical fitness is equally important. So, don't get carried away under the pressure of the exam and try to be as fit as possible.
