ESIC General Awareness Preparation: Useful Tips

General Awareness is a topic that can be tough yet scoring. Going by the name, it is simply about your ‘general’ awareness of news, facts, and figures, with respect to your surroundings. Stay in touch with the local, national, and international news to shelve off the need to especially ‘prepare’ for the General Awareness. We are sharing some simple tips that might help you in figuring out ‘how to cover’ your ESIC GA syllabus.

Guide yourself through the syllabus

The syllabus is a guide to what all is expected out of you in any examination. Refer to the complete syllabus for the ESIC exam.

Devote an hour

You need to sincerely dedicate ‘at least’ an hour to your ESIC General Awareness preparation every day. This is the only way you will be able to be in regular touch with the news, facts, and numbers completely without puzzling yourself. 

Stay in touch

It is important to keep yourself updated with all the latest happenings around the world. Else, things will easily skip from your mind.


Segregation is the key. As you are very well aware that General Awareness is a diverse and vast section with various topics to read and know about, segregating each topic day-wise, in your preparation plan will prove beneficial to a great extent.

Limitations can be useful

Study only relevant details as focussing on everything may eventually end up in you being totally ‘unprepared’.

Read, read and succeed

Read and succeed can be your ‘mantra’ for scoring well in the ESIC GA section. You need to read:

  • Newspapers
  • Current affairs magazines
  • News articles
  • Journals (can be based on any subject like Arts & Culture, History or Science)
  • ixamBee’s Weekly and Monthly Beepedia (available in English and Hindi as well)
  • About government policies & other new updates in every sector
  • The Union Budget 2021-22.
  • A few good books

Keep notes

Make notes while you read and try to succeed. Your memory can never guarantee you 100% results as it comes with a limited warranty. Thus, you should always make it a habit to write down important events and related information.

Quiz & buzz

Test yourself on your preparation for the ESIC GA section. Attempt daily GK quizzes on various online platforms and improve your knowledge. These quizzes will you prepare for all kinds of questions with varying levels of difficulty.

Mock away your fears

Attempt an ESIC free mock test daily and analyze your preparedness to give yourself enough chances to rectify your errors.

Looking back can sometimes be good

Check the ESIC previous year papers where you can get a fair idea of the kind of questions that were asked and can be asked in your exam as well.

These were a few tips that you might find useful in your exam preparation. We advise you to take a look at the ESIC exam details and our blog section before you start your preparation.
