The Combined Defence Services exam is going to be soon held on 14th November 2021 and as the time draws nigh it’s high time for all the students to get in their last-minute preparations done. So for all our readers who are also appearing for this exam as candidates. Written below are some tips to follow for your last-minute preparations

  • Don’t go for reading an entirely new topic, just revise all previous ones that you have learnt.

  • Clear up all the arrangements you have to make forgoing the exam since many people get the centre out of the city hence they must decide upon the transport and other stuff.

  • Revise all your formulas for Mathematics; I hope you must have made a small booklet or a collection of formulas so revise it again and again

  • Refer to previous question papers of the CDS Exam; this method of preparation is followed by many successful candidates for many years. So always solve 10-15 previous question papers and find out where you are lacking, focus on topics which you are sure about and you will succeed without any doubt. Check out for CDS Exam Coaching online by SSBCrackExams for detailed lectures, mock tests and solved previous question papers.

  • Mock Test is the best way in which an aspirant can get a complete self-evaluation and understanding of his own progress and performance level for the exam. Mock Tests help the students to comprehend the question pattern and topic-wise question importance of the exam and even guide them to design and devise a clever strategy to use in the real exam to solve questions within a stipulated time frame.

  • Carry a watch with you to keep the track of time as some exam centres might actually not have clocks, you should be aware of your time.

  • Reach the exam hall at least half an hour before the commencement of the exam

  • An old saying but would like to repeat it, that if you get stuck in a question then move ahead and do not waste time on that question.

  • Some questions in CDSE are long, hence be focused while you read the question. Be careful and avoid silly mistakes, better if you read the question twice.

  • Do not plan to read the question paper once then start solving it. Solve while you read. as you have limited time.

  • Read and understand and listen to all instructions very carefully and remove any doubts in the beginning only, ask the invigilator if you don’t understand anything, dont hesitate.

Last but not the least, you are writing an exam to get into the defence services which is a huge commitment in and of itself so go ahead be swift and decisive and do your best. Jai Hind.
