Know the Syllabus:
Before starting the preparation the candidates should know the syllabus and the demand of the exam so that they become fully aware about the direction of the preparation. Without knowing the syllabus one cannot be sure about the direction of the preparation.
Rajasthan preliminary examination is designed to filter the candidates who are alien to their Art, Culture, Living Style and the Local Traditions. So the knowledge of the local cultural and traditional folklores is essential.
The Exam demands a wide range of knowledge about India and Rajasthan both. There will be 150 questions in the Preliminary Paper. Negative marking of 1/3 will also be there to deduct the marks on wrong answer. It will be of three hours. So our expectation is that there will be a good mix of the questions from all the topics given in the Syllabus. Hence Syllabus is the key to examination. The Demand of the exam is to select the candidate best suited for their state administration without feeling alienation from the public of the state.
Tips and Strategies:
Rajasthan State Preliminary Exam is modified and the exam is redesigned into one paper of three hours and 150 questions. So the candidates have only three hours that too for only one time as no aptitude test will be taken separately.
