How to prepare for TNPSC Group 1 Exam from your home ? | A Comprehensive Guidance

As we all know, the year 2013 was a milestone in the history of TNPSC.  Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission introduced revolutionary changes in Syllabus, Question Pattern etc. in almost all Examinations. We could see a rebirth of TNPSC with very new pattern of examinations and fully revised syllabus . Previously, more number of candidates  trained by coaching centres could only clear the examination easily and the students who didn't get opportunity to join in a coaching centre were struggling a lot to get a job through Examinations conducted by TNPSC .

"Important Book List for TNPSC Group 1 Preliminary Exam 2016"
       I strongly believe that, here after we could see a tremendous change in the TNPSC question pattern and it will increase  the number of successful candidates from out of coaching centres. Any one who do not have access to the coaching centres can also easily succeed in the TNPSC Exams. The Group 1 new question pattern is  asked more analytical than too much factual as previous years question papers. You too can win the race if you are  one with  sincere efforts, continuous hard work and perseverance . No need to go to a coaching centre. You can prepare in your home whether you may working or home maker.

sir , i have a doubt .. Is there any difference in attending the exam in english , tamil ,i mean is there any priority for any of these languages , if yes which will benefit better ??

is tamil one of the papers in group 1? is it a qualifying paper?

In Paper 2 there is a portion called ----2. Tamil language, Tamil society ­­ it’s culture and Heritage / English Language----- But it is a part of the General Studies area.....not a qualifiying paper....So there is no such qualifying papers in TNPSC Group 1 Exam as UPSC Civil service mains examination.

Download TNPSC Group 1 Latest Syllabus from TNPSC Website

No such difference...remember TNPSC is a state recruitment agency. There will be no discrimination in the medium of answering .... don't worry , no such benefit for either languages.The matter is your answers must be more informative than others

If you are in final year , you can attend TNPSC Group 1 Exam . TNPSC notificatioin 2013 says "The candidates, who have written the final year degree examination, may also apply for thePreliminary Examination for direct recruitment to the posts included in Group-I Services, subject to the condition that they should produce proof of having passed the degree examination when admitted to the Main Written Examination, failing which they will not be admitted to the Main Written Examination."

sir i have done diploma in mechatronics am i eligible to write group 1 exam?

For applying Group 1, you should have a Degree. Since you have only Diploma , you are not eligible to apply for Gr 1. You have options before you, you can do a degree through distance education if you wish. All the best !
