UP Police SI Preparation Tips

Exam talks

Here are some of the preparation tips that will help to achieve better scores in the UP Police Sub-Inspector Exam:

  • Understand the syllabus: This is the first step that must be followed for the exam preparation journey. Any competitive examination has a defined syllabus and the previous year’s papers for exam pattern and difficulty level. 
  • Create a study timetable: It will allow the candidate to dedicate daily fixed hours to exam preparation. Hence, it will reduce last-minute exam-related stress and pressure. It is essential to manage their time wisely and smartly to achieve success. Dedicate fixed time to study, recreation, and other daily activities to avoid distractions. Try to optimise the time and follow an articulated routine and study methods.
  • Refer to the right study material: The candidates must focus on quality rather than quantity. Concentrate on one book rather than covering all the books at once. Try to cover the books recommended by the Board first and then move to other books for further references. These recommended books will clarify various concepts for them. 
  • Attempt as many mock tests as possible: Embibe has provided several mock tests focused on different sections of the UP Police Sub-Inspector Exam papers. Take these tests and ensure that the preparation is on point. Along with the mock tests, practising the previous year’s sample papers would be highly helpful. This will help the candidates to get familiar with the exam pattern and instil a habit of completing the paper in the time frame provided.
  • Take revision seriously: Revision is the most crucial step in the preparation journey. It is impossible to remember everything that’s studied only once. Multiple revision is effective for retention as well as application. 
  • Read newspapers daily: General awareness section is a part of almost every exam, especially UPSC, SSC, SSC CGL, SSC MTS, Banking exams etc. If the concepts are clear, candidates may score well in every section of these competitive exams with last-minute preparations but not general awareness. 
  • Make notes: It is not the process of understanding a topic that is the tough part; it is remembering. Hence, it is essential to note important issues and glance through them whenever the candidate wishes to revise a topic. Well-organised and to-the-point notes save the trouble of revisiting the voluminous study material. While learning a topic, try to make notes for better understanding and easy revisions.
