[Studyplan] Studyplan for HPPSC NT/CDPO-TWO Screening (Prelims) Exam

Syllabus for the Screening Test (Prelims) of Naib Tehsildar (NT)/CDPO-TWO Exam:

Paper of two hours duration consisting of 120 marks (General Knowledge) (Objective type)

In NT/CDPO-TWO Exams, HPPSC ask Very  Very Difficult Questions, Many times tougher than HPAS/HAS, In HPAS they ask simple and easy questions but in this exam question come tricky and difficult one. Those aspirants who appear for the first time for this exam feels questions totally alien and cut off each year comes down to 55-60% of 120. You can guess the toughness of this exam by recently concluded exam of CDPO-TWO Prelims, only 300 out of 9526 was able to score 60 marks or more out of 120 marks i.e. most of the candidates even failed to score 50% marks of the total. HPPSC sets this paper so tough to filter out the non serious candidates.

So In my opinion you have to read a lot and in depth and still you can't say that you definitely will make to next stage but if you will read more and more and prepare current affair well, then you will always have chance to qualify. Luck also plays a part in this exam because if you attempt 40-50 % questions correctly and then you can also do some guess work as there is no provision of negative marking in this exam. But it doesn't work for all it only work for those who work hard. In this article I will try to Guide to you how to approach this paper, which books to follow and previous year papers.
 
(a)  History,  Geography  and  Socio-Economic  development  of  Himachal Pradesh. =30 Marks

Detail : In this Section Questions related to Himachal General Knowledge Will be asked related to History, Culture, Political History, Geography, Socio-Economic development and Current affair of Himachal Pradesh. But don't expect easy questions, there will be hardly few easy questions, rest will be really hard. So you will need to read authentic books and more than one book. In previous years there were questions which were not even in Good books, so you have to study from multiple resources.

For this section you need to have One or two books of Himachal GK so that you can score in this section, this is a scoring section so it is important to prepare this section quite well. I will mention following books to cover this section:


1. The Wonderland Himachal Book - Jag Mohan Bhalokhra Or Himachal Pradesh: History, Culture and Economy - Mian Govardhan Singh

2. A book of Objective Questions "Himachal Darpan Samanya Gyan By Aaksah Publisher (Aakash Entrance Series)" this book is quite useful and contains a lot of questions. A must have book. 

3. Keep Reading Newspaper and prepare Himachal Current affair of last 12 or 15 months.

Detail: This section is Current Affair of India and International Events. This section is most dominated section and 50 questions will appear from this section, So this is the most important section, you have to prepare Current affairs of Last one year and current months too, they can ask from anywhere and any topic. So be prepared. If you have any Old Magazines of each months of One last year (i.e. from August 2013 to Till the month of Exam) then its good, read them again otherwise you have to buy yearbook that cover the current affair of one year. Otherwise India Yearbook 2014 will also fulfill this purpose as well as for other exams because it will cover the whole current and also its official Govt Book.
