New Delhi [India], March 23 (ANI/Mediawire): The COVID pandemic might soon be behind us, but the same can't be said for recession and dearth of jobs. Every year lakhs of students appear for different competitive exams to make a career as bank professionals, MBAs, railway officials, engineers, etc.

The competition level of these exams is already very intense and for the next few years, it could become even more competitive. Preparing for the competitive exams is a tough nut to crack and can only be achieved with a carefully crafted strategy.

Every year students appear for some of the top competitive exams such as IBPS, SSC, SBI, RBI, AFCAT, CDS, UPSC, UPPSC, CAT, MAT, XAT, Railways, Insurance, etc. to achieve their dream career. The number of seats available via these competitive exams is limited while the number of students appearing is in lakhs. Let us look at some of the top strategies that can be followed by students for cracking the competitive exams.

We can't emphasise enough the importance of referring to the standard study material. The competitive exams are aimed at evaluating your application of knowledge and not theory.

So, pick up study material that involves a modern approach for understanding the concepts and involves a learner-friendly method for a better understanding. The content of the study material should be the latest and geared towards helping you ace the examination. To ensure that you are familiarized with the Level 1 and Level 2 questions, you can refer to Oswal's High Score Objective Series for Indian History, Geography, Indian Economy, Polity, and General Science.
