Preparing a Preparation plan

Candidates who are starting the preparation afresh, should study the syllabus first. The syllabus prescribed for the preliminary examination should be studied thoroughly. Based on that the important topics to be read should be clarified. Next candidates have to decide how much time to devote to which topic during preparation based on their ability and existing skills in the respective topics.

Focus on Telangana 

As a part of preparation, candidates should focus on everything from national developments to local issues. Especially the priority developments of Telangana region should be taken into consideration. Regarding the Telangana region, special attention should be given to the important movements in the Telangana history, the emergence phase of Telangana movement. In the same way, all aspects of Telangana's history should be read which inform the social face of Telangana - literature, arts, poets, kingdoms, geography, resources, government schemes, new schemes implemented after formation of Telangana etc. 

Prepare your own notes

While studying the respective sections, important points should be noted. Same should be followed for all subjects. By reading this, you should increase your knowledge on all the topics. Special attention should be given to local issues like religions, social classes, tribal issues, regional issues. Similarly while studying a topic one should study it from all angles. For example, if social classes are considered, you should not limit to the definition of those classes, you should also learn their history of emergence, expansion, current conditions. Only then will there be complete understanding of a subject.

Focus on Govt. Policies and Schemes

At the national level and at the state level, social problems and government policies are definitely asked. Learn about government policies. Women empowerment is important in this. Various schemes have been brought at the national level for the empowerment of women. New policies were introduced for the welfare of minorities, backward classes and tribes. Similarly, many new policies are being formulated. They should be studied thoroughly. For example, if we consider the new education system, the main points of the new education system as well as the education systems that have been brought so far, the difference between them and the current system, the purpose, main points, goals, etc. should be studied in all aspects.

There is a chance that more questions will be asked in the exam from Telangana issues. So firstly concentrate on Telangana policies. You need to know what kind of policies have been brought about the formation of Telangana and the main demands regarding water, funds, appointments, etc. Similarly, awareness should be created about the new policies being implemented for the respective communities in the state. One should know what schemes are being implemented on policies related to backward classes, minorities and tribals.

Study from different angles

Candidates should study a topic from different angles. Especially if you read in a descriptive manner, you will get an understanding of all the things related to the subject. For example, if you ask about socio-cultural history of India.. not limited to bit banks on them.. should be read in a descriptive manner. As a result, no matter what angle the question is asked, the answer can be identified. It will also be useful for the mains exam which will be in essay format in the future.

Selection of books

Experts suggest that Group 1 candidates should be cautious in choosing books. Many publications are publishing books keeping in view the current competition and craze. As a result, candidates are confused as to what to choose. But candidates should prefer to read university publications, books written by expert professors in their respective fields and Telugu Academy publications.

Candidates who have selected those books should read them thoroughly. From the definition to the latest developments regarding a topic, a comprehensive understanding should be developed. Candidates should develop decision-making ability and problem solving skills to succeed in the exam. This gives a grip on objective as well as descriptive approach. Similarly, the specific topics should be read by applying them in real situations. As a result, it is likely to be remembered for a longer period of time. As the time for prelims is less, firstly concentrate on prelims.
