How to Prepare for PSU ?


The entry to these PSUs was initially through a separate written examination conducted for each Maharatna, Navratna and Miniratna but now these PSUs have standardized GATE as the only gateway to get a direct entry tob the public sector. Some government sectors like SAIL, BARC, DRDO, etc aslo have their separate examination as well as entry through GATE. The GATE examination paper consists of two major sections:

Technical Section: Subject specialization of related stream

Non-Technical Section: General Awareness, Current Affairs, English Language, Reasoning & Aptitude.  To crack theses PSUs competitive exam, a candidate should be well versed in both technical and non-technical sections having 50% to 70% questions are from technical and remaining questions from non-technical sections. The papers also contain elements like negative marking for the wrong choices made so one has to be vigilant while attempting the question through guess work. A candidate should have a thorough idea of the previous year questions asked. Smart work and strategy coupled with effective time management is the key to success for getting an entry into these PSUs. Use shortcut techniques for numerical solving instead of traditional methods to save time. A careful analysis of the important and frequently asked topics is an important part of the preparation phase. Solving the questions in the given stipulated time domain should always be encouraged to have a good score in such types of examinations.
