From 2018 UPPCS has changed its pattern for the mains exam. Apart from GS papers, optional subject and essay there will be a paper of Hindi (150 marks) comprising of Paragraph, Letter writing and Hindi grammar (antonyms, suffix prefix, idioms and phrases) and that will be compulsory as the marks will be added in total while deciding the cutoff. Hindi paper can fetch good marks for the candidates, so they should not remain complacent about it. For General Hindi, the books of HardevBahri and Dr.PrithvinathPandey can be referred. If the candidates are from Hindi background then they should not face much difficulty with this section. For the candidates of English background, there may be some issues but that can be overcome. It should be noted that you don’t need to study the literature of Hindi but only the basics of the language since it is a test of the Hindi ‘language’. A candidate is required to write only in Devanagari script. The candidates may get around 100 marks in this paper.

Students should not leave Hindi language preparation for last hour; some basics can be followed by candidates while preparing for this paper:

  • Before the exam, have writing practice in the Devanagari script (especially if you are not from a Hindi medium background/Hindi medium aspirant).
  • Have a good vocabulary of Hindi words. Note down words and their usage during preparation.
  • The section on proverbs and grammar are generally easy and you can easily score maximum marks here since they are objective questions.
  • For the Letter writing questions, write formal and informal letters. If one is not aware with style of formal and informal letters they can take help of any good book. Before the exam, practice around 10 letters. That should be sufficient for you to get through.

Verifying, please be patient.
