HOW TO PREPARE WBPSC MATHS OPTIONAL?
This exam consists of three stages that include preliminary exam, mains exam, and then interview. Before starting preparation, a candidate needs to make a proper study plan. This is the way candidates can make sure to crack not only the preliminary exam but also the main exam. One of the important steps to clear this exam is to practice the MCQs for the prelims and the answer writing for the Mains.
If right from the very step you want to prepare yourself with the vision of the WBCS Main Exam, practice is the core ingredient to help you throughout. The civil services examination is an eminent one and the standard of papers designed for it, are such that they test the analytical and conceptual clarity of the candidates.
Time is the most important resource for anyone! This fact is even more important for WBCS aspirants, who are preparing for one of the toughest entrance examinations in the country. With an ever-growing and extensive syllabus to cover, managing time in an elective manner becomes a key factor for cracking the WBCS examination. Despite devoting 10-12 hours for WBCS studies, candidates often fail to reach their daily goals and suffer from stress, anxiety, and depression, which in turn hinder the overall preparation process.
For prelims, unlike many other Public Service Commission exams, WBCS does not have any aptitude test. It comprises a single section i.e., General Studies. In Mains, the tier of the exam has six compulsory papers along with one optional subject paper. The optional subject paper occurs in two parts. Out of the six compulsory papers, four are objective in nature. The subject in which there is higher predictability of scoring more in Mathematics.
Every topic in the WBCS Maths syllabus is important and an aspirant should never skip any of those. Since it is a state service exam, the candidate must read the state board textbooks. Most of the syllabus is included in these books. Solving as many as the sample and previous year's question papers helps in ensuring that one is getting good practice. Topics like Calculus, Geometry, Algebra, etc require lots of practice. A proper timetable is required before one starts the preparation. The timetable will definitely help in making the preparation efficient and adequate. Getting familiar with the syllabus is the first priority before going through any of the study material or books. Revision is also a must for any exam. As the syllabus is vast, forgetting few topics is quite possible. To avoid this, timely revision is required. Revising topics in a regular manner and not skipping the final revision is important as well.
It is also to be noted that in other subjects like humanities, there is always an element of subjectivity involved, with the examiner’s personal prejudices coming into play. The answer is either right or wrong. So, after taking the exam, you can have a pretty clear picture of how you have fared. Mathematics is a static subject and not linked to current affairs. One just needs to revise in order to score high marks. Practicing makes one faster in problem-solving and hence is important.
During the exam, going through a problem carefully is important, then working out the answers step-by-step is essential as well. It is important to present the solutions clearly in steps, line-by-line. Understanding the topic is necessary. Never try and learn the process by heart. It doesn’t work in mathematics. Always understand the question correctly before venturing to work out the solution. Once you start writing the answer and it is incorrect, you lose precious space in the question-answer booklet. And later, even if you figure out you have to rework your answer; you might not be able to because of a space crunch. Always prepare and keep a formula sheet handy with you. This will help you memorize certain formulae that would be required to solve the problems. Always solve mathematical problems with a relaxed mind.
