RRB NTPC CBT: Preparation Tips

Candidates who will be appearing for the exam can check these points below on how to prepare for the exam.

The first and foremost important point is candidates should not allot for one subject. Topics that are tough should be chosen before and the easy ones should be chosen later.

It is important to focus on the mock test. The link has been activated by the Board, so candidates can easily log in to the account and appear for the mock round. Mock round helps students to get an idea of the questions that will be asked in the exam.

Try and increase the reading speed to cover 100 questions in a duration of 90 marks. It is best to start by reading the RRB NTPC syllabus. With daily practice of reading, the speed will automatically increase.

It is very important to devote quality time to preparing the different sections of the RRB NTPC syllabus. Candidates are advised to not get stuck to only one subject. Make a timetable where all subjects should be given the same time slot and also prevent aspirants from having a mental block.

For the quant section, it is very important to practice regularly as this section involves calculation. While practicing various types of complex questions, it is important to memorize shortcuts and tricks instead of mugging them up.
