NTPC CBT PREPARATION TIPS

The candidate should prepare for the NTPC CBT exam in the following manner:

  1. Be Thorough With The Syllabus: Go through the RRB NTPC syllabus and see what all topics are included under each section. Categorize your strength and weakness, to find out which topics are easy and which are difficult.
  2. Create A Timetable: The next step is to create a proper and realistic timetable. Separate time slots should be allotted for each of the sections. More time should be spent on the section that you find difficult and less time on your strong sections.
  3. Develop Reading Habits & Clear Your Concepts: You need to understand what each of the concepts means. Otherwise, it won’t be possible for you to even identify the problems. Especially for the General Knowledge & General Awareness section, you need extensive reading. The General Knowledge & General Awareness section on the other hand needs you to have information about a wide range of topics at your fingertips. All these things can be achieved with regular reading of Newspaper and Articles.
  4. Memorize The Various Rules, Formulas & Steps To Solve Problems: The Elementary Mathematics section needs one to remember a large number of formulas. For General Intelligence & Reasoning section, you need to understand the theory and then remember the various rules and steps to solve problems.
  5. Practice Diligently: The next step is to solve RRB NTPC CBT Mock test (at least one daily) diligently until you feel confident about a particular topic. Mark the specific type of questions that you find difficult so that you can visit them later.
  6. Work on Your Time Management: You need to have a balance between your speed and accuracy. Without speed, you won’t be able to finish the paper on time. And without accuracy, you won’t be able to score well. So, practice in a time-bound manner and try to control the amount of time you spend on every question.
  7. Work on Your Weaknesses: Once you have finished the whole syllabus, take CBT Full mock tests (full test). Analyze how you have performed and find out what mistakes you have made. Work on them to improve. Also, as you take mock tests, develop a proper strategy to take the exam. Your strategy should be such that you finish the paper on time with maximum accuracy and minimum negative marking.
