Preparation Strategy for UPSC Labour Enforcement Officer Exam 2017

Before jumping on to the preparation strategy, let us understand nature of this exam. Our Subject Expert Team has analyzed Syllabus and Last Year Papers:

  1. Out of total 120 Questions, 45 Questions are from 16 Labour Acts. It is most annoying to remember each line of these acts, considering the language in which they are usually written. But this is deal breaker section. You can score 40-42 out of 45, because there is nothing conceptual. You just have to remember, what is written. No thinking to be done.
  2. 10 questions from HRM, Org Behaviour. Moderate level of difficulty. You can target 5-6 out of 10.
  3. 20 questions are from Labour Welfare, Industrial Relations, Natural Justice, Trade Union. This is one area, for which you will not find everything in a single book. You have to do lot of research from multiple sources. Our experts have been working on these topics for last 6 years. After analyzing 2015 paper, we saw that out of 20 questions for this section, 19 were covered in our study material. With our one booklet (68 pages), we will make you score 15-16 out of 20.
  4. 25 questions from Indian Constitution. The questions are not like UPSC, where you need to have conceptual understanding/interpretation. Moderate Difficulty but again no thinking to be done. Just remember, what is written in Constitution. Two options are there to get 20/25 right, One read through 500 pages of Laxmikanth or Second is 130 Pages of Booklet from Human Peritus.
  5. 15 questions from Mathematical Aptitude- Very simple mathematical aptitude questions. The challenge is not that you do not know. The challenge is that you are not able to solve in given time (1 minute per question). Thus we have to save time somewhere else so that you can allocate 3 minutes for each question. This way, no one can stop you from getting 10-12 correct out of 15.
  6. 5 questions from Current Events- Do not put in any effort in preparing for this. Marginal rewards of efforts required are not worth it. Ignore it.
  7. Very very important We expect you to build speed to a level where you are able to complete 75 Questions(Covered in Points 1,2,3) in 37.5 minutes i.e. 30 seconds for each question. The minutes saved here, may be used for Mathematical Aptitude questions. This is Important.
  8. It is very critical to score high in written exam only. One reason is that the competition will be high for this coveted job. Second reason is that UPSC interviews are unpredictable. We want you to secure your seat with high score in written, so that even if you screw up in Interview, you are IN.

Based on these insights, our subject expert team at Human Peritus has created highly concise and focused content for this exam. With this package, you can Score 80-85 out of 120 with 30 days of preparation.
