Some additional tips for effective preparation of the Rajasthan gram VikasAdhikari(VDO)exam 2021.

  • Know the syllabus: Thoroughly reviewing the syllabus allows candidates to know what to study and which subjects to give higher priority.
  • Have a timetable: A realistic timetable that can be followed daily, with dedicated hours every single day to cover all the topics.
  • Make notes: Handwritten notes while studying help retain the information for a longer period. They also help clear concepts more effectively.
  • Focus on high weightage topics: Some subjects have high weightage that is the number of questions asked from that particular subject is higher. Therefore, you should focus more on those topics.
  • Multiple revision: Reading fewer topics several times is always a better preparation strategy than reading several topics just once. Revise important topics multiple times before the final examination for retaining and a better understanding of the concepts.
  • Give mock tests and solve previous year’s question papers: The preparation is incomplete without solving mock tests. Since this exam is an MCQ-based exam, it should be tackled with proper time management—something that only comes with adequate practice. On a final note, practicing the previous year’s test must not be skipped. Generally, questions get repeated. Rigorous practice will keep stress at bay in the exam. Good luck!
