[For MPSC Rajyaseva Prelims 2011 – Study Plan- ClickHERE]
This following plan was for Prelims 2010 so do not get confused. Click on the above link for Prelims 2011 exam Plan.
This study plan is for candidates who have not yet started their preparation.
Actual Time Available For Preparation: 61 Days (1st March 2010 to 30th Apr 2010) + 7 Days (1st May 2010 to 7th May 2010)
After a careful research of the previous years question papers, I have listed the following subjects/topics that were given importance in the question papers. The number of days allotted are according to the trend of the subject/topic in the question papers.
Total Subjects/Topics to be Prepared: – 10
- Vidhnyan and Abhiyantriki (Science and Technology)
- Vaanijya and Arthvyavastha (Commerce and Economics)
- Bhugol (Geography)
- Krushi (Agriculture)
- Bhartiya Rajyapaddhati (Indian Polity)
- Jagtik Ghadamodi (Current Affairs – National and International)
- Buddhimapan (Mental Ability)
- Itihaas (History)
- Samaj Sudharak (Social Reformers)
- Gram Prashasan (Village Administration – Local Administration)
Since there is a lot to study in these 2 months time period, you must read carefully every subject/topic, within this limited period. You cannot afford to take everything at once and start reading. Neither can you study multiple subject everyday else you will mix up everything. The best strategy is to take up one subject and study carefully, finish it and then take another subject. This way you will spend a number of days on one subject and cover every topic/sub-topic of that subject.
Following is a trend of asking questions on specific subject/topics. The following table shows the numbers of questions were asked in 2008 and 2009 MPSC State Services Prelims Examination.
|Kala Ghatak (Art Subjects)||49||Distribution of Marks||48||Distribution of Marks|
|Itihaas (Modern History)||05||07|
|Bhugol (Geography)||16 – India07- Maharashtra||11 – India6 – Maharashtra|
|Bhartiya Rajyapaddhati (Indian Polity)||11||11|
|Gram Prashasan (Local Administration)||3||5|
|Vidhnyan & Abhiyantriki (S & T)||30||26|
|Vaanijya & Arthvyavastha (Comm & Econ)||30||34|
|JagtikGhadamodi (Current Affairs)||17||12|
According to the above question trend, I have allotted number of days to each subject according to its importance in the examination. You should plan your study accordingly.

During the above period while preparing, you must read carefully and make small notes on full-scale papers. Write in very small letters so that maximum notes can be written. You will need these notes for quick revision in May 2010. Do not write everything. You should read and understand everything and make very small (point-to-point notes) in 1 or 2 lines. Contact me for my own notes to see (scanned copies to show you how to make notes).
1st May – 7th May should be for revising your subjects’ notes. You must utilize whole day for study since all main points needs to be read for a given subject/topic during the whole day.
