Work hard on the ground
In the previous notification, 80,000 candidates had crossed the preliminary stage. About 50,000 of them had dropped out of the events. So job opportunities will be available only if the candidates work hard on the ground. AR, TSSP, SAR CPL posts can be easily secured if one achieves merit in the events. Passing this stage qualifies for the final written test. Exam papers are also tough. The final exam will also include language papers. So devote time to study while doing ground practice.
