  3. Good study material is tough so one should consult with experienced persons before going through it.
  4. Regular study is must. Early morning before office/ college and again in evening. Do not neglect health, diet, and proper diet.
  5. Check syllabus required to study in exam
  6. If possible make a group study in exam.

According to census 2011 data if states were to be ranked by growth in Jobs between 2001 and 2011, Tripura and Assam would clock in figure among other northeastern states with 27% and 26% increase in total number of working people. But lack of growth in Industrial sector and non-firm employment in most states and the hilly terrain are one of the important reason employment is stagnant in north-east. And lack proper development lead to search for more government jobs thus competition is high.

The only creative way to develop North-east would be to convert it into an Educational Hub. With more awareness exposure and expansion will be a bonus for Job Culture.
