Indian Air Force is going to conduct the Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT) 2020 examination on October 3, 4 and 5, 2020. The entrance test shall be conducted in a computer-based format. A total of 100 questions shall be asked in the AFCAT paper covering subjects like General Awareness, Verbal Ability in English, Numerical Ability and Military Aptitude Test. 50 questions will be asked in EKT paper. Through AFCAT 2020, candidates can join the Indian Air Force as commissioned officers in flying, technical and non-technical verticals. As only 2 days are remaining for the examination, here are some last-minute preparation tips that aspirants must follow to crack the examination.
The General Awareness section tests the knowledge of the candidate when it comes to current affairs. For this, they must read newspapers and magazines up till the examination day. To prepare better, they can also watch GKTODAY YouTube videos and note down important information that may be asked in the exam. This information includes important books and authors, monument builder names, sports terminology and players, recent government schemes, capital and currency of countries, etc. Information like important cities on the bank of rivers, important bills which were recently passed, important awards and films related to awards, etc may also be asked. These minute details play an important role in scoring good marks in the respective section.
Numerical Ability tests the conceptual clarity, memory and recalling-capacity of the candidate. Candidates must remember and revise important formulae to solve the Mathematics questions within a short period. They can also solve mock tests and previous year papers to recall important formulae and manage their time.
Verbal Ability in English section is based on concepts like synonyms and antonyms, spotting the errors, jumbled sentences and ordering of sentences. All these require constant practise of mock-tests. Referring to the English portion of Classes 11 and 12 may come in handy. Moreover, reference books like Wren & Martin are instrumental in clarifying a candidate’s grammar-related concepts and question-solving skills.
Reasoning and Military Aptitude section takes away maximum amount of time in the exam. To manage, candidates must quickly solve the easier sections like Verbal Ability and General Awareness. The Military Aptitude section consists of sequencing, classification, Venn diagram, embedded figures, word analogy, missing figures, coding-decoding, etc. This section again, involves constant practise of mock tests. Two days before the exam, candidates can simply refer to their study material and carry out quick revisions. While solving the paper, if candidates cannot crack the answer after multiple attempts, they can simply use the elimination method. Discard the least unlikely options and focus on the ones that may be the answer.
Candidates must also ensure that they do not clog and confuse their mind before the examination. A healthy diet and consistent 8-hours of sleep are of paramount importance. They must also have immense faith and confidence in their hard work and efforts. By doing so, success shall definitely come their way.
