The first stage in the recruitment process will be prelims exam. This exam is qualifying in nature and most of the applicants are unaware of the same. In the quest to score more they try to attempt questions beyond their capability. Consequently many of them end up scoring below cutoff and miss by hair thin margin. So don’t limit yourself to knowing the pattern but even understand it and then plan your strategy.

It doesn’t matter where you rank in this exam. It’s like the quarter-final match in a tournament.

As the name signifies it is more vital than other stages (even the interview). The marks you score in this exam define your place in the rank list. They form a major fraction in the final score. So the more you score here, more are your chances to rank higher.
