Study plan for Punjab patwari 2021 exam
Usually, preparation for the patwari exam begins two or three months prior to the exam. However,the goal of preparing it in one month is not unachievable. Therefore, in order to prepare the whole syllabus in one month, you must keep your focus and follow the study plan well.
You must plan according to the time in hand and distribute the topics in three consecutive weeks.
In addition, you must always follow the syllabus when preparing to make sure none of the topics are left. It is also important to do revisions of past topics every week. Solve previous year’s questions to help yourself compose the idea of the kind of questions that will be asked in the exam. Give more importance to topics that carry more weightage. As you already know the syllabus let us distribute the topics broadly over three weeks.
Week1- Since Qualitative aptitude (30) and General knowledge (20) carry higher weightage. You can begin your preparation from these topics.
- In order to prepare for general knowledge, you can follow books that are available in the market such as General Knowledge by Arihant and Lucent. However, do not stick to only one book as it may not have all the topics included in your syllabus. It is always good to refer to two or three books for a complete understanding of your topics. You can refer to NCRT books for the same.
- For qualitative aptitude, the first thing you want to learn is completing the sums in a short amount of time. Since the exam is just 2 hours in duration, and there are a lot of topics to cover, time management is the key. Practice the sums and keep a timer with you. Record the time taken to solve each problem and try to minimize it with every sum. In order to achieve this, it is important to keep your concepts clear so that you do not waste much time in understanding the question. Basic requirements of the question such as formulas and methods of solving should be learned by heart.
The topics you can cover in the first week are-
|Week 1||Day||Topic 1||Topic 2|
|2||Geography and history of India||Simplification|

Week 2– In the second week, you can focus on completing three topics related to Languages (Punjabi and English) (20) Information technology (15), and Mental ability (15). By doing this you will be left with very few topics by the end of the second week. Therefore, you can revise more.
- For problems related to languages, you can follow English newspapers. This will help you learn new words and meanings. You can keep a note of the new words that you learn daily.
- For information technology, you can follow computer application books that give you detailed information regarding gadgets and problems. You can practice by solving mock test papers.
- Mental ability is mainly based on logical questions; therefore, you can score well in this section. The more you solve logic-based problems, the more practice you will get. Try to solve as many reasoning problems as to understand the concept. You might want to pick up the pace here, as there are many topics to be covered in one week.
|Week 2||Day||Topic 1||Topic 2||Topic 3|

Week 3- In the final week, you can focus on topics that have the least weightage. This will help you take out more time for revision of the entire syllabus. The final two topics are Agriculture (10) and Punjab Culture and history (10).
- The agriculture section is mainly based on the agriculture of Punjab, the crops that are available and terms related to crops.
- In Punjab Culture and History, you will be asked questions regarding important personalities in Punjab’s history. Research well and make a list of important people and past movements.
