Candidates preparing for the exam should know that it is very important to do the prepartion as per the topics listed in the syllabus of CDS 2020. Not just that, we also suggest that candidates should solve previous year quetsions papers and mocktests. By doing so, they will be able to analyse their preparation and can work accordingly to improve weaker areas. We suggest that instead of referring to various sources of preparation, candidates should stick with the ones they are already preparing from. It will avoid last moment confusions.
Once the written exam is over, selected candidates are sent for intelligence as well as personality test. These tests are conducted at Service Selection Board, based upon the preferences chosen by the andidates. Then two stage selection procedure takes place, which is based on intelligence test and psychological aptitude test. After clearing stage 1 candidates are sent for stage 2. Once both the stages are cleared, candidates are called for document verification.
