How to Prepare for TNPSC Group 4 2016 Exam? - Study Plan for TNPSC Group 4 Exam 2016

How to Prepare for TNPSC Group 4 2016 Exam From Home?

We hope everyone of you is getting the very latest information about the Upcoming TNPSC Group 4 2016 in our exclusive website. The notification is expected to be published shortly within this month. It is wise to prepare for the TNPSC Group 4 well before the exam. It requires minimum 3 to 6 months of intense preparation to clear the TNPSC Group 4 Exam.

Few things to know about Upcoming TNPSC Group 4 Exam
  • The Question paper will be in the 10th Standard Level but 10 - 20% of the questions may come from the 11th and 12th Std books and other sources. So, to score high marks you need to cover these books too.
  • More number of direct questions when compared with Group 2 and Group 1. So it requires a number of Revisions to keep the facts in mind.
  • The eligibility is 10th Standard. So for Degree holders it is not the right job for their career. They should consider this only as back up job until they get Group 2/higher one. They should also try to crack Group 2/2a exams.
