  • The strategy for CAPF is largely the same as that of CSE Pre Paper I . In addition to that , some CAPF specific observations were made. You will have to go through this thread for that
    discuss.forumias.com/discussion/18616/official-capf-2016-only-discussion-thread-cutoffs-dates-analyses

    There is another thread about CAPF 2016 Physical Test.
    Some observations regarding Paper I have been made there also.

  • CAPF is all about getting as much marks as you can in Prelims paper 1. If you score beyond 150, 100% chance that you will be in the list.

    2 people disqualified in shot-put during our physical in Hyderabad. They did technical fault of crossing the circle after throw, and the commandant in charge just didn't gave them second chance.

    ho jata h bhai. People succeed in the most difficult competitions and people fail in doing the simplest of things. Why this condescension ?
    Jo kar leta hai usko woh cheez easy lagti hai. jo nahi kar pata usko tricky.
    Let's focus more on 2017. Only 3 months left.

    Tempo set krne k liye mai kuch bol deta hu ;-)

    Mera Hindu 1 week ka pile-up ho rkha hai. Usse notes baanane me 1 hafte se basic books like Laxmikanth , NCERTs etc nahi padhi hain.
    I am relying on Vision IAS current affairs xerox for supplementing The Hindu ( in case I miss something from it ).
    Anyone wants to weigh in regarding current affairs for CAPF ? Also any CAPF specific observation you might have made w.r.t. focus area of Paper I in Polity , Science , History etc ?

    I haven't touched history till now. My plan is to read Spectrum's modern history cover-to-cover twice or thrice.
    Will it be helpful or should I invest my time in some other subject ?

    bhai meri age ho gyi...main nahi de sakta is bar..2015 me 5/6 marks se final nahi hua selection(114+69+87)..is bar PET nahi diya...to bhai ye TH wagere opinion building k liye acha hai but paper 1 me 140-150 la doge to sure selection hai...2016 me 156 aya muje...

    CAPF paper 1 k liye kuch chizein dhyan me rakho agar 140-150+ lana hai to

    1) Science 2) Aptitude k ek bhi wrong nahi karne (2015 me main ne 3 lollypop wrong kiya n final selection 5 marks se kuch ruka, warna tab hi ho gaya hota)

    2) Armed forces k mandate, functions, etc sab rat lo Internal security ki book se mains ki. (2015 me nahi kiya tha, 2-4 easy nahi kar paya waha)

    3) Physical geog pe focus karo zyada. But krna poora hai Geog

    4) Polity - Laxmi, Hist - spect, ye do kitab bohot achese karna chahiye. Culture me sir mat phodo but ancient n medieval dekhna chahiye, Baki economy k kuch khas conceptual nahi puchte n current k ate hain, Environment se bhi basic ata hai.

    5) Current acha karna - I will strongly suggest Learning space. Vision to hai hi.

    Paper 2 - 2015 me to main khali thoda AIR sun k gya tha (got 69/200) But bohot general likha tha like Acid attacks pe report likhna tha, me general likh k aa gya, No reference to SC judgement, etc. But thode details likhne ki koshish karni chahiye (again Learning space + vision kafi hai)

    IR pe opinion build karna, Internal security k aspects Internal security k books de dekh lena.

    Conclusion - Focus on paper 1 (Esply - science, physical geog, apti). paper 2 - general opinions building on broad themes in economy, polity, IR, internal security, social issues

    @stonecold_srivastav Thank you for your valuable input.
    Can you please tell the title/author of the book you are referring to ? (Highlighted above in bold)
    Aur, paper July me hai to current affairs kaha tak ka karna safe rahega ? Aug 2016 - Mid june 2017 itna kafi rahega na shayad ?

    Dekh bhai... Considering Promotions.... ITBP and SSB are close.... Then comes CRPF and last BSF... No idea about CISF....
    In ITBP I'm aware that a person from 1996 batch is Comm. I'm not sure if he became Comm in 2015 or 2016.
