“Police constable?” some of the highly aspired parents and neighbours will be scowling when you say you are preparing for the Kerala Police constable examination. But when you are on the uniform the scowling faces will be prideful or rather fearful looking at you. The misconception of the society is that a Police constable is the lowest rank of the entire police department but the reality is that it is the first step towards the great ranks in the police department. A newly recruited IPS officer will be allotted from the constable duties to the other duties as part of their probationary training period at the station level. There are many police constables who turned to the IPS officers by clearing UPSC examination based on their experiences.
The Kerala PSC has declared the Kerala Police Constable notification 2020. Are you interested in preparing for the exam? Through this article we discuss how to prepare for Kerala police constable exam 2020.
Understanding the Syllabus of the Examination
For any kind of competitive examination, the first step is to understand the syllabus of the examination. The syllabus includes what are the areas of the expertise which the recruiters want their aspirants to have. The syllabus will pave a path to the things that are to be studied and that are to be ignored at the same time.
Syllabuses of the competitive examinations can be classified into specific syllabus and general syllabus. Specific syllabus means the subjects or areas that are specified in the syllabus will be very precise and does not include a lot of subsets and does not include areas which impose vagueness. But in the case of general syllabus, the syllabus contains a lot of general topics which includes a lot of areas that are not specified directly by the syllabus. It imposes vagueness in the minds of the aspirants.
Understanding the syllabus, we can realise that that syllabus of the Police Constable Examination 2020 is a general syllabus and it includes a lot of unspecified areas within it.
Expecting the range of questions
In order to reduce the toughness and uncertainties imposed by the general syllabus it’s wise to have an analysis at the range of questions. For that you have to go through the previous year question papers of the constable exam and analyse the range of questions that are asked and analyse the average toughness level of the questions. The syllabus says about the topics generally but analysing the range of questions will help us to analyse what all things are asked, the question pattern and average toughness level…etc
Calibration of the syllabus
After analysing the range of previous year questions, you can calibrate the general syllabus you have made. You know the range of questions and toughness level of the questions. Analyse which of the questions in the previous year examinations belong to which of the sections of the syllabus. If some questions are frequently belonging to a particular section give that section more importance. If some section does not include any questions from the past five years try to exclude that section from the syllabus. If some questions from the past five years do not have a suitable section in the syllabus, make a suitable section for those questions for your conveniences.
Thus, you can calibrate the syllabus for your preparation.
Finding what needs not to be read!
Since our preparations are based on the general syllabus, it’s very important to know what need not to be read rather than what should be read. This can be decided based on the range of questions that you have already analysed. For example, UPSC civil service examination as well as the constable examination will ask regarding the Indian independence movement but the questions will not be of the same range. The UPSC will ask more in an analytical way and the preferred best read for UPSC is India’s Struggle for Independence by Bipin Chandra. A Constable exam aspirant may not be able to cover that book in the given time and the constable examination’s question will not be based on what you have read there. So, it is better to know what not to read rather than what to read because the time and effort you put in for this examination should be in a smart way.
Practice Mock test
This is really important in your way of preparation because the Police Constable examination syllabus includes basic arithmetic and mental ability. Mental ability and basic arithmetic can be developed through practice and the speed you gain to solve these questions determines the winner in these sets of questions. The more you practice mock tests, the faster you solve these questions. Entri app provides a lot of mock tests for Police Constable Examination and that makes you an expert in these questions.
