English Language: The syllabus for this section is same for both Prelims and Mains. So, no extra effort is required for Mains.

The main purpose of the English language test is to test candidates hold over the language.

Important topics are: reading comprehension, error detection, para jumble, sentence completion, idioms and phrases.

Quantitative Aptitude: This section needs application of lot of formulas and shortcuts (Profit & Loss, Average, Simple & Compound Interest, etc).

General Awareness and Descriptive section: Reading (newspapers, magazines, books, etc) these will help you in both the subjects, as it helps in the Comprehension test as well as in brushing up your basic grammatical knowledge.

Computer Aptitude: This is the easiest section and spending only an hour after the Prelims examination will help you to score well in this section.
