Plan for Answering Questions at MPSC Rajyaseva Prelims 2011

Things to be followed for MPSC State Services Prelims Exam 2011

Be positive, think positive. Remember, a cool mind can give you 100% success, so never lose your patience. If you get panicky then you will lose precious time. Relax.

On 12th Feb, make the following things ready for the exam on 13th Feb 2011:

  • Black Ball Pen – 02
  • Wrist Watch (make sure it is working perfectly). It must have “Second Hand” that shows seconds. Sekand kaata asayla hawa.
  • Hall Ticket
  • Water Bottle (Apane ghar ka pani hamesha swasth rehata hai, sharmane wali koi bat nahi).
  • A good pair of socks (cleaned properly. No need to buy new pair)
  • A very good set of clothes. (If you wear decent clothes, your confidence will be on the higher side)
  • If you wear spectacles (eyeglasses), make sure they are in perfect condition.
  • Well polished shoes or good pair of Chappals.
  • Writing Pad (for keeping Answer Sheet on the pad in case the table top is uneven or rough).
  • No medicine of any type. Kontyach prakarch medicine khaavu naka..

On 13th Feb 2011: (Exam)

  • Make sure that you got everything with you from the above list.
  • Start early from your home to avoid traffic jam etc. Gharun lavkar nigha.
  • After reaching the exam center, check your exam Hall and find out where is your Seat Number.
  • Check for Toilet and go get yourself freshen up just before the exam. Remember, you will not be allowed to come out of exam hall.
  • In the exam hall, check your chair, if it is broken, get it replaced; otherwise you may not be able to concentrate on your paper.
  • Remove your wrist watch and keep it on the table so that you can have a look at it while answering the questions.
  • Check your Answer Sheet and read all instructions. If you are not able to understand anything, ask your examiner. Fill-up required information.
  • Quickly read the entire question paper as soon as you get it. Check for printing mistakes, if any. This MUST be done in 5 minutes.
  • Start answering the question paper.
  • Do not get panicky, if you find some questions difficult. As you already know that you are not gifted to understand each and everything. This is same with every one so do not get angry, either. Leave the most difficult questions and move on.
  • Do not spend more than 30 seconds on one question at a time. The break up of the time for entire duration is as follows:
    • 200 questions – 120 minutes
      • 5 min – initial reading  (11 AM to 11:05 AM)
      • 100 min for 200 questions = 6000 for 200 questions i.e. 30 seconds (1/2 minute) for answering each question in the first round. (11:05 AM to 12:45 PM)
      • 15 min – revision of difficult  questions (12:45 PM to 1 PM)
  • Answer easy question first so that you gain confidence.
  • Keep your eye on the wrist watch so that you monitor the seconds.
  • If you cannot answer a question in 30 seconds, leave it for next round. You can answer it in the last 15 minutes
  • After you have completed entire question paper within the 100 minutes, make another round of the remaining questions and try to answer them. Remember that you must answer all questions within this time i.e. (11:05 AM to 12:45 PM).
  • If you find that you cannot answer them, just leave them unanswered. Remember that wrong answers can draw penalty. For 4 wrong answers, 1 mark will be deducted; so be careful.
  • When you have used up the 100 minutes, i. e. at 12:45 pm, start revising your entire question paper from question number 1 till the last question. Check for the unanswered questions and try to answer them if you know the most correct answer. Do not answer it if you are unable to arrive at the right answer. This is to avoid the negative marking.
  • Stop writing exactly when the examiner warns you.
  • Good luck!
