14] How to Prepare For MPSC Rajyaseva Exam?

You have to start preparing for this exam before the one year it will make you comfortable to study and to manage time. There are hundreds of strategies to prepare for this exam and you can select one amongst all of them or you can make your own strategy to prepare for this exam but there are few things you must follows to prepare such types of exam and of course we will share one strategy for you but we will not take guarantee. Because most of the success is in your hand not in the coaching institutes or the study material of others with titled “100% guarantee”.

So, here is Preparation Strategy

  1. Start with basics

If you are studying in 12th or 10th then it’s better to concentrate more on your study but if you are in graduation level like in first year of graduation or second year of graduation and if you are studying in arts branch then its good time for basic preparation.

So, what is the basic preparation you can do for this exam is that you can read the basics books of Maharashtra state board, NCERT Books etc. these are the basic books you can read in basic preparation. And one more thing you have to do is that you can read the previous year’s questions papers of this exam to understand what type of questions I will get in this exam. And one more suggestion do not read questions papers from the past years like 2010, 2011… 2017. Read the questions papers from the recent exam like 2017, 2016…2010.

So, this was about the basic preparation for MPSC Exam you have to do, but the only difference between you and others is that currently where are you? Means what are you doing right now? Whether you are in first year of graduation or in 10th or 12th standard or at the last year of graduation of degree or you are managing this preparation with your job. So, depending on your profile you can take time to read the basics books. If you are in exam process that means you are preparing for this exam more than one time then you can skip this type of preparation or you can read the books at your higher speed to save your time.

  1. Preparation with Standard Books

This type of preparation is needed to pass this type of exam or any competitive exam in the Maharashtra or India. See, you can directly start with this step without basic preparation. As we know that the all students are not equals. If you are topper in your district in 10th or 12th and you have studied very well in school life then you may feel boar while reading the same content of 10th , 12th and 9th , 8th 7th , 6th ,5th etc. and one more thing is that if you are reading State Board Books or others book then read it like 5th, 6th, 7th…. 12th etc do not read 12th first and then 11th , 10th. if you don’t have time to read basics books then you can skip 5th, 6th , 7th standard books.

And where you will know that my basic knowledge is good that you can test the previous year’s questions papers specifically before 2013. You can read the simple papers to test your basic knowledge about particular subject or as whole.

Now you may feel that which are the standard books we can use to prepare for this exam, then the answer would be there are list of books which you can refer to prepare for this exam. For some subjects there are multiple books from which you can select one of them.

Now one more thing you must know for this exam is that this exam consists of three stages i.e. preliminary exam, mains exam, interview. So to prepare for this exam your preparation should be amalgamation of prelim and mains. one more thing in the prelim is that in prelim there is paper called CSAT which is Paper 2 of prelim exam. people thinks that this paper is scoring for engineers, science graduates etc

CSAT Paper consist of various topics, so if you are not good in maths then you can prepare well for comprehension, analytical ability, etc

in future we will take look of each and every topic with examples, keep in touch with us.

thanks for reading… have good day/night.

share it with your friends.

  1. Hello Sir! I am a non maharashtrian candiadate with no domicile certificate and did my schooling in English medium so no certificate or knowledge of marathi. Am I eligible to apply for MPSC state services exam? I have heard that during joining the authorities do ask for Marathi and domicile certificates. Please help.

    • You will be eligible for MPSC exam. Domicile is required only if you are taking benefit of reservation in your homestate then also you will be considered as open category student in mpsc. Secondly, if you pass the exam then you will have to take certificate of knowing marathi language from the marathi subject teacher at university or you will have to take certificate from the university itself of knowing marathi.

      • Sir I know Marathi very well but can u explain how can I receive a certificate of “knowing Marathi” from my college. I study at Bhavan’s College which falls under mumbai university and my course is in English so how can I do that??

        • When you will eligible to take interview or whenever you get selected for any post so, before documents verification you can visit Marathi Language Department of your college and ask to the head of department he/she will give you certificate or he/she may suggest you to go university which is in kalina.

          Don’t take certificate for now. You can take it whenever required. You can get it from any graduation level marathi professor. So, don’t worry about it.

  2. Sir I’m in 2nd yr of graduation so I have prepare for mpsc so should I start preparing from basic or read from some specific books tell mi sir ani I will complete 3rd yr next yr but I’m a medical student so internship is there so which yr to apply for exam aand what to study .sir tell mi I’m confused how to start study

    • As you have said you will have internship. So, your internship should be completed before applying for mains exam. So, i don’t know what is period of your internship.
      For eg. If you pass or appeared for the final exam of your degree and you think that your internship will be completed in between month of June then you can apply for that year exam.
      How to start preparation ?
      Print the syllabus , read it and keep with you and then see the past year papers like 2019, 2018, 2017 in this way and then start with basic state board books of respective subjects and then again do the analysis of papers and make strategy and prepare syllabus wise for exam.
      And if you are starting for next year. Means you have one year then you must start with mains exam and mains syllabus is well defined. According do the study and your mains and prelim syllabus must be completed before appearing for the prelim exam. Like this start your preparation.
      And do refer book list of toppers of this exam which is available on Instagram and accordingly go ahead.

  3. Question – For Rajyaseva – Mains
    What if I score 110 for GS 1,3,4 and let say only 20 in GS II. can I be still part of merit list (i mean is there any cut off for all 6 papers of Mains or is the final merit list based on combination of marks)?
    Hope my question is clear.

    • there is no such minimum marks are required in each paper but our over all marks should be (30-35) percentile with respect to category then only you will be eligible. and you say 110 marks. in such marks you will be out of race .. peoples gets 110 marks in one single paper like GS 2.

    • ते, सर्वांसाठी नसते, Internship म्हणजे एखादी डिग्री घेतली की ती डिग्री तेव्हा पूर्ण समजली जाते जेव्हा Internship पूर्ण केली जाते. काही निवडक डिग्र्या असतात जसे मेडिकल ची डिग्री असते ती पूर्ण झाली की Internship करावी लागते कुठल्या तरी दवाखान्यात इत्यादी.
      Internship सर्वांनाच नसते .
