      1. Inquisitive

        I have filled A B D preference, then they are asking – are you applying for the post of junior statistical officer? isme EQ kyu pooch rhe hai? and what does it mean?

        1. Statistical officer k liye alag se apply karna padta hai n iska alag se exam hota hai tier 2 me.

          EQ is essential qualifications. Bas tick karna hai isse. That u are graduate

  4. Mera bhi din ayega :)))

    Mam ek baat bataiye
    Me newspaper read kar rhi hu quiz kam karti par do to karti hi hu and bhut qus galat ho rahe h kya karu
    Improvement nahi dikh raha h ??

    1. Mera bhi din ayega :)))

      Abhi is quiz me bhi bhut galat ho gaye always sahi kam galat ka no jada hota h ??

    2. AVI™ (Sinchen loveR)

      Quiz bi jyda do
      Sense ka use Kiya kro
      Mostly ans Shi ho jayege

    3. odin

      the problem lies in mentality.. if you are genuinely aspiring for improvement, you would have to go beyond newspapers and quiz.. take your post for example, if you harness every chance you get to use hindi, english will always be the distant cousin

    4. Ambika

      Only reading newspaper is not enough , practice a lot..do at least 4-5 different sets which are coming in exam these day and try to grasp the essence of the language, not just the rules
      To understand English try to think in English …This is the sole rescue at our disposal :))

    5. ??????????|||√乇刀り乇イイム™

      IMP in Newspaper­ part: Whenever you read the newspaper or any other English text read carefully looking at the usage of nouns, adjectives prepositions, verbs and most important subject verb agreement. You
      should be able to identify the parts of speech. Even if you don’t know the grammar of a language if you will keep on reading it over a period of time you are bound to improve upon your knowledge about distinguishing between correct and incorrect grammar usage since you had spent so much of time reading it
      Another daily writing task you should follow, write about your own routines in a diary is to write about the news that you read and listen to everyday. If you include your predictions for how you think the story will develop ,this can give you a good reason to read old entries another time, at which time you can also correct and mistakes you have made and generally improve what you have written.
      and the closest thing to speaking for people who don’t have the chance to speak English is online chat, as you have to think and respond quickly, and the language is short and informal just like speech.just try to execute these points definetly you will get over such panics.
      Good luck >ATB
