Uttarakhand PCS Mains initiative
This is a Free initiative where your participation and answer writing practice(a way of contribution) will be help full to all UK PCS mains candidate.we will review the answers written by candidates and will give feedback and one best answer out of all will be posted.
It has been long journey from advertisement of ukpcs exam to pre result and then waiting for mains exam.mains exam was supposed to be happen in may , 2015, but due to a case in high court wrt rajya andolankari ,it could not happen till date.Now Uttarakhand government has passed bill regarding reservation .So chances of conduction of exam by ukpsc seems reality (see time table below) .exam date 31st january to 3rd february ,2016
when we interacted with numbers of candidates,we heard their problems regarding vast syllabus of UKPSC mains exam,we identified few key problems
Voluminous syllabus (nearly 20 pages). everything related to subject matter has been written in syllabus(seems just copy & paste from various competative books,but ensured that nothing should be left otherwise “Log kya kahenge ki ukpsc ne kam syllabus diya hai”) .
Is everything that is written in syllabus should be prepared as they again made tough provision through variety of questions (2marker,5marker.8marker,16 marker) .they tried to ensure that you could not think to left any topic( anyatha itana bada syllabus dena ka fayada kya hoga?)
How to prepare uttarakhand related topic?they have ensured sufficient syllabus of uttarakhand in each paper.there is no comprehensive book.by seeing uttarakhand material in Pariksha vani/winsar, “aisa lagata hai ki isase kuchh nahi hoga ,aur kya read kiya jaye”People are suggesting various books for different topic.(we will provide strategy for this).
Various topic in polity paper, economy paper, science and technology are not given in conventional book.what and from where it should be prepared.
How to MANAGE TIME to answer all questions.
What type of current affairs should be prepared?
such a vast syllabus has been described by UKPSC for mains that a student not prepared very well will feel that hamse na hoga itna. ukpsc has prescribe every minute aspect of topic so that you can not leave any part of syllabus(That means you have not to read any thing extra beyond syllabus).strictly follow the the syllabus.
we are here to make small contribution with respect to how you simply and exactly deliver whatever you know.every one knows how much is important to do the writing practice. Since uk psc is conducting mains exam in this format (allGS) first time so every one is bothered what level/type question paper they will ask.This is sure that they will not ask question at par UPSC .
Their questions will be a mixed bag of simple,moderate and some good question like upsc/ias exam. second challenge will be completion of paper within time.if you have practised many good questions during your preparation stage ,you can easily manage the time,quality of answer in those three hours.
Strategy for Preparation:
- First of all read the syllabus carefully.
- Identify your strong and weak areas.identify what you can write easily,on what you can write littlebit and where you can write nothing.
- Prepare the list of topics that you feel you does not have sufficient material ,search in google for basic (donot search for Ph.D) so that you can write upto 250 words.
- Read basic uttarakhand state information ( geography , economy,history)
- Think what can ukpsc ask,how will you respond.
- Read old papers of OPTIONAL subjects of UKPSC to have various dimension and depth of question level that can be asked .
- Revise static part regularly and do writing practice in time bound manner.
- Learn to write same question in 20 words,50 words,125words and 250 words.
- Do not be panic to prepare very much about uttarakhand special.Avoid reading any special book for uttarakhand history or geography at this moment.Read Pariksha vani many times and have factual information so that you can use it as per your requirement.
Why one should not read special book for uttarakhand?
From Pariksha vani you can easily answer 2 marker and 5 markers.in case of 125 word/250 word you have to attempt 5 questions out of 7 question.if you have prepared whole syllabus clearly ,you can easily avoid uttarakhand related question. Uttarakhand related big question can not be more than 2 /3 questions in section C /D. even in case of 250 words question also you can write good answer in less word with the help of Pariksha vani.
Time bound Practice?
if there is no time limitation most of you can write better answer.when ever you practice answer writing ,you should take care of time limitation.during practice you should allot 1 minute for 1 marks.In exam start writing with speed from start itself.
It is big issue for english medium student as they are not habitual to use even common word of hindi and writing it in limited time is even bigger challenge.For hindi medium student,this part is ok but they have to also prepare and revise it from proper source for maximization of marks.Most of the candidate get average marks in hindi ( because they target only for that much) and few get exceptional high marks.every candidate focus on grammer part that is highly scoring due to its factual nature if you can write suitable words correctly,so makes little difference among the candidate .2nd highly scoring area is letter writting and Lokokti/muhavare,if you prepare them properly.The difference in marks is very much visible how you approach/write the संक्षेपण,व्याख्या, भावार्थ etc.The book recomended from our side
