Elementary mathematics is just basic mathematics up to 10th level were they the sharpness of your mind by giving you tricky questions.

  1. For English, first, check the English test syllabus.
  2. To prepare for the English create a habit of reading and improve your vocabulary. You can do it by reading English newspapers, English articles, etc.
  3. Set proper time management for the grammar portion.
  4. Solve mock test paper and previous year question paper.
  5. For General knowledge, there is no perfect trick to prepare for this. Just collect information regarding news, international news, defense-related news, etc.
  6. And for the History, civil and geography prepare with the CDS books. Or books of Major Kalshi Classes.
  7. For elementary mathematics:  this is not so tough portion, most of the questions would be tricky like reasoning, just prepare for the reasoning and also solve the maths till 12th class and take help from the previous year’s question papers or mock test papers.
