Have you always dreamed of getting a government job?
How important is it to get a Sarkari Naukri?
Are you willing to work hard for it?
You can surely succeed in your Sarkari Naukri Exam – just go for the exams fearless and easy – let that be your mantra for your success. Let’s talk a bit more about this.
Millions of young people take part in competitive exams hoping to get a government job every year in India. Yes, there is no question that the private sector is today bigger than ever before, and offers excellent career prospects. However, for a vast majority of Indian youth, if you ask them, they would tell you that there’s nothing quite like the prestige associated with government jobs.
Government jobs are unbeatable when it comes to job satisfaction, perks and benefits, status and most importantly, job security. Every so often, we hear stories of people getting laid off by some big company. IBM, for example, has laid off tens of thousands of employees in Bangalore over the last few years.
People work so hard for the company, give it their all, and yet get laid off, for reasons beyond their control, such as a recession in the US/Europe, a bad quarterly performance, etc. Life in the private sector is very uncertain, but then that’s the nature of the beast.
What about the public sector? India has had several recessions since independence, even been through wars and extended periods of political instability. But never have those working in the government had to suffer for that reason. A government job promises a stable income and stable career growth till you are 60 years old. Thereafter, following your retirement, you are entitled to a cushy pension, for as long as you are on this planet.
It’s no surprise that in this time of uncertainty, government jobs are the most desired career options in India. However, it’s not easy to get a government job. The competition for one is fierce. It’s very difficult to clear a sarkari naukri exam.
One of the reasons for people to fail to clear their government job exams is the lack of organization. Most aspiring candidates do not have a proper preparation strategy in place.
You should plan every single aspect of your government job exam preparation. You should understand the selection procedure and study every step in the process in detail.
We have compiled a few points that might help you in your preparation, but here’s the gist of it.
Most of the government jobs exams have the same pattern – reasoning, mathematics/Quantitative Aptitude, general English, general knowledge/general awareness and computer knowledge.
To ace the exam, follow your passion with determination, dedication and hard work; there’s no reason why you won’t be able to achieve your goals.
Follow the right methods and tricks, especially those that help with your time management. Don’t hesitate to ask questions or to get your doubts cleared. Always take notes and use them for reference, when in doubt. Take as many mock tests and GK quizzes as possible.
Follow this step-by-step guide to excelling in your government job exam, taking on all challenges fearlessly and getting the Sarkari Naukri of your dreams with ease…
Step #1: Understand the process
At the very start of the preparation, you should have a good idea of which area of government service you want to aim for. So, if you are aspiring to join a nationalized bank, and are planning to take the bank exam, that would have a completely different criteria compared to taking the SSC exams, Public Service Commissions exam, or the UPSC exam.
Your strategy for the government job exam should be tailored keeping in mind the selection procedure. If the selection procedure consists of a written examination, then you should focus on academic preparation according to the declared syllabus. If the selection procedure consists of an aptitude test and an interview, you should focus on that.
Step #2: Study the syllabus closely
The syllabus is the most important thing when appearing for a government job exam. You should fully understand what the syllabus consists of, and should prepare for the major and minor topics listed in it thoroughly. You shouldn’t miss out on anything at all – the questions can come from anywhere from within the syllabus. You should be perfectly ready to answer absolutely any question from the syllabus.
Step #3: Have an exam preparation strategy in place
As said earlier, you must strategize on how you prepare for the government job exam. There are so many things to consider, that is why it is so important that you are well organized. You should cover the entire syllabus within a set timeline.
You should have a solid understanding of what you are good at, and where you are weak at. You should singularly focus on your weak areas within the syllabus and dedicate more time to the topics that you find tricky.
You should revise the syllabus regularly and take mock tests as often as you can, so that you can evaluate your performance. You should also be self-motivated, and drive yourself to cover the topics for the sarkari naukri exam as thoroughly as possible, while retaining your focus and concentration.
Step #4: Set a preparation time
You will have very little time to prepare for a government job exam. So you better make the most of what you have by devising a goal based timeline. This means allocating a fixed time for the various topics and executing them within the set timeline.
Time management is the key here. You should continuously track the topics that have been completed and those that need to be covered. Don’t allocate more time than you should to a particular topic. Make sure that everything is completed within the set timeline.
Step #5: Get together all the material you would need
By now, you will have a preparation strategy in place. Now start collecting the right material for the government job exam. There are several different types of preparation material available for those taking government job exams in India. You can start by checking the questions on the “General Knowledge” page on this website every day, to prepare for the GK test.
Step #6: The Fearless and Easy Strategy
The way to prepare for the government job exam is to be fearless. As mentioned earlier, most sarkari naukri exams have the following topics: reasoning, general English, mathematics/Quantitative Aptitude, general knowledge/general awareness and computer knowledge.
Take on the toughest topics that you are not all that familiar with first. After mastering the topics that you find to be difficult, you can then move on to the easier topics.
This way you will be able to devote most of your time to your weak areas, and will be able to manage your preparation time more effectively. You will be able to cover the entire syllabus quickly and revise the topics multiple times.
So if you’re weak at general English and computer knowledge, pay special attention to these topics. Work hard on them, drive yourself to succeed with grim determination and focus.
Step #7: Note down everything
As you prepare for the exam, make it a point to prepare revision notes for every topic. Revision notes are summaries of the topics being covered by you. They consist of bullet points that encapsulate the most important aspects of what you’ve learned. There’s probably very little time left for the government job exam, so these notes will come in handy when you need to go through the entire syllabus in quick time.
Step #8: Take mock tests
Mock tests are very important for any competitive exam. You should take as many mock tests as possible, so that you have a good idea of where you stand. These tests are designed to evaluate your level of preparation for the exam. You will learn a lot about yourself from taking mock tests. You will know where your strengths are and will be able to identify areas that need improvement. This allows you to recalibrate your preparation strategy and focus on the areas that need more attention.
Final Thoughts- It’s not easy to get a government job in India. There’s always a chance that you might get discouraged, given that there are so many people – hundreds of thousands – who want the same thing that you do.
So the best way to approach the government job exam is to be completely fearless. Just give it your best shot, without worrying about the consequences.
Get rid of the clutter in your mind and be clear about what you want to achieve and how you want to go about it. See any failure as a temporary thing, learn from every failure and use them as a stepping stone for success.
