OPSC Maths Optional


Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC) is one of the most crucial entrance tests for the candidates who want to get recruited in Group A & Group B services.  Every candidate has their own way of preparation and must find their path. To crack this exam, it is advisable that candidates start their preparation at the earliest. This will provide them enough time for preparation. Also, this provides them with sufficient opportunity to crack the exam within the limited framework of time.

The candidates must appear for the Prelims exam which is the first step in the selection process. The preliminary exam consists of two papers in which questions are in the form of multiple-choice questions. Candidates are allotted a time period of two hours for each paper. If the candidates qualify in the Prelims exam of OPSC then they will be called for the Mains exam.  And subsequently if you clear mains then you are qualified for an interview.

Mains exam is descriptive in nature and the candidates must appear for a total of nine papers. Total marks in the Mains exam are 2600.  Candidates who clear the preliminary and mains exams are shortlisted for the interview round. And after this, the final merit list of the selected candidates is prepared. The board asks questions based on various areas from the candidates.

Now, another important thing to know about the exam is the syllabus of the OPSC exam. Mathematics is one of the optional subjects which has the most simple and basic syllabus. It mostly includes the basic numeracy of Class-X level.

You need to make your basics strong and work upon your weak areas. Figure out the topics at which you are strong and where you can fetch good marks. In this way, it will help to score well.

It is vital for students planning to appear for the exam to have detailed knowledge about the exam. Creating a preparation plan helps in finishing the syllabus as well as saving time.  It is essential to understand the critical topics which might come in the exam. This can be done by figuring out the syllabus and making a list of important portions of the syllabus.

For basic preparation, first of all, the candidates need to get familiar with the latest course content and syllabus. Upon getting an idea about the syllabus, they should start preparing for the exam according to that so that they can score well in the exam. Since the syllabus is vast, so one needs to put in the extra effort while preparing the same. If one doesn’t understand the topics, then solving them would not be possible. Similarly, in case, one is stuck on one question, they should not leave it half or incomplete, rather they should try to solve it. But at the same time don't waste too much time on a particular question rather focus on questions that are high scoring and easy to answer. This is the best trick to score better and finish the paper on time. Also, while solving questions keep a tab on time and don't exceed time on a particular question. By looking at the question decide at the first instance that you will not devote time more than the decided fixed time.

The mathematic syllabus majorly consists of Calculus, Geometry, Equations, Vectors, Algebra, Real and Complex Analysis, etc. These concepts require lots of practice and can be high scoring. The objectivity of the subject makes it very scoring. The aspirants should also make a formula sheet. This would help them revise at the end. They should note the tricky examples and questions down for revision while preparing.

All the aspirants should try to solve the previous years’ sample papers as much as possible to understand the question pattern. Apart from that, the aspirants should practice full-length mock tests and sample papers to boost up their question-solving nature. The candidates should also keep in mind to not cover or read new chapters or topics before the exam, as it will increase anxiety unnecessarily. It is also wise to relax and maybe listen to good music. Prepare well and come out with flying colors.
