That’s Why, you have to Prepare very smartly and regularly for Indian Railway Non Technical Popular Categories examination if you want to get this job.

Try and Try You Will Be Success


So here I discussed some healthy tips for you. I think If you follow these suggestions, I’m 90% confident that you will succeed. 10% depend on your LUCK.


For Mathematics

This is the the most highly scoring part of Railway NTPC exam after GI and Reasoning portion. 30 number of questions will be asked from this part. So you have to pay more attention to the mathematics.


        1. First find out your weak parts and strong parts. Now the focus is on the weak side and try to make strong the weak side as soon as possible.

        2. Invest minimum 3 hours regularly for practice and don’t break the regularity.

        3. Give regular Mock Test. Don’t ignore this. Mock Test must.

        4. Remember all the formula regularly. You can note all the formulas on a exercise book.

        5. Try to practice advance mathematics . 

        6. Practice all in details . Don’t try to use Short Cut process.

        7. Must follow Previous Years NTPC /ALP / Group D Mathematics Papers.

        8.You can follow any competitive mathematics books like R.S Agarwal , Arihant, M. Tyra etc.

For GI and Reasoning

This is most scoring part of Railway NTPC exam. 30 marks will be asked from this portion. And this you can get 27-30 marks out of 30 from this part of you give a little effort.


        1. Practice regularly minimum 2 hours for this. And try to understand the point of any tough reasoning.

        2. You have to maximum focus on Statements, Pai-Chart, Calendar, Watch, Direction etc.

        3. Must follow previous years NTPC / ALP / Group D questions papers.

        4. Give Mock Test in regular Basis. Mock Test is must.

        5 You follow any reference books like How To Crack Hand Book , Arihant, R.S Agarwal.

For General Awareness

This is the most vast and tough section of Railway NTPC examination. 40 marks will be asked from this section. There is no place to try in examination hall except General Science portion.

So, you have to read more and more for this part. You can plan very smartly for this section or you can read very hardly.

My suggestions- Give More focus on Mathematics and Reasoning. Supposed If you get (27 + 28)= 55 marks out (30+30)=60 marks in Mathematics and Reasoning then you can skip some parts of General Awareness. Choice is your’s. 


        1. Give maximum focus on General Science. Read CBSE upto 10th level books. First read all in details then read any reference books like Encyclopaedia (Very Good For General Science and Computer) , Arihant , Tarun Goyal.

        2. For General Knowledge on Economy, Geography, History, Indian Polity, Freedom Struggles etc you can read any reference books like R.S. Agarwal, Arihant , Tarun Goyal etc.

        3. For Current Affairs, You can read Monthly Patrika like Current Affairs dot Com, Current Affairs InFocus etc.

        4. Read all details about IPL, ISL, Commonwealth, Asian Game, Olympics, CM, Governor, Brand Ambassador, CEO etc.
