 PPSC never goes out of syllabus so stay focus on syllabus

Do This :

Try this technique - work with full concentration for 50 minutes and then take a break for 10–15 min. You can change the focused time in the range of 45–60 min
 depending on your ability. You will achieve more than you do by continuous study of several hours.

 Break down the curriculum into small, achievable chunks. Focus only on completing a chunk in a given period of time. Don’t think of the overall picture as it pulls you down.

 Find friends who are appearing for the same exam. You will have a common focus, and they will not distract/entice you into other activities.

 Do short courses on reading fast and memory skills. It takes less effort to do more after that.

 Sleep well, and do some physical exercise. It keeps your fitness levels up.

 Do regular meditation in morning . Try to see one thing for few minutes continuously. Talk to yourself. Do regular exercise or join gym . Always think positive in negative situations. Always keep a winning attitudes. Try to sit still for few hours.


 First quickly read NCERTs & then start reading newspaper.
 Join test series Program before prelims & mains examination.
 Create confidence in you. You have to do it by yourself.

 Plan you day a night before. This list should not be over burdened that you don't even get time for any other work. This will help you to decide what you want to do. And keep your study on track.

At starting don't think that suddenly you will start studying for 8–10 hours daily with full concentration. The habit of studying develop slowly. 
You should start with small chunks and gradually increase it. This will slowly increase your concentration level even in the big block of study.

Take proper breaks during study. Do not study continuously for more than 2 hours. Because concentration level generally starts decline after this much mental work.

When you feel tired then change your subject so that your energy level and concentration level comes back in your pace.
