Fundamental Level ( Sectional Tests )

Subjects are divided into 2-3 parts based on syllabus and two subjects are clubbed for each test. Each test will help you revise basic concepts of a subject. Each Sectional test will consist of five components namely:

  • Subject 1
  • Subject 2
  • Current Affairs of a month
  • Selective chapters from India Year Book and
  • Map based questions.

Take a test every day and make a separate notebook of all the points, schemes- things you couldn’t get right while answering the questions. Revise them regularly. This will help you develop a good understanding of what question types can be asked in the paper.

This is also the best way to revise current affairs. Taking tests will jog your mind and will help you perform better and revise more efficiently.
