To get the BCS Written Exam Syllabus analysis, please, collect the book ‘The Cadre’.

If we analyse the Syllabus of the BCS exam, we’ll notice that not all of the subjects of the BCS Preliminary syllabus are given in the BCS Written syllabus. There are ten subjects meant for the BCS Preliminary exam from which only eight subjects are selected for the BCS Written exam.

‘Geography, Environment and Disaster Management’ and ‘Ethics, Values and Good Governance’ of BCS Preliminary Syllabus are not included in BCS Written Syllabus.

That is why these items should not be given much priority when you go for preparing for the BCS examination.
Again, even though 8 subjects from BCS Preliminary syllabus remain the same in BCS Written syllabus, not all the topics of those respective subjects of 45 BCS preliminary syllabus are the same as given in BCS written syllabus.

For this reason, the candidates should give priority to those subjects and topics of BCS Preliminary syllabus which are the same as and similar to the subjects and topics of BCS Written syllabus.

Not all the topics of 45 BCS Syllabus should have similar priority.

If you go through the Syllabus and the questionnaires of the previous BCS exams set by BPSC, you’ll see that most of the questions are frequented from a few topics of the respective subject.

So, you should prioritise the topics marked important by analyzing the questionnaires of the previous BCS exams.

To set the priority of the topics, you can take the help of the super-effective and well-analysed ‘Data-Based Suggestions-DBS’ given under each subject of BCS Exam Syllabus in my best-seller beginner’s book for BCS Preparation ‘The Cadre’.

The DBS-Chart given in my book ‘The Cadre’ will undoubtedly fortify your BCS preparation strategy.
In my book ‘The Cadre’, I furnish each subject with a ‘Data-Based Suggestions’ which I prepared by analyzing a huge volume of data taken from the questionnaires of the previous BCS exams.

If you would like to download the PDF of ‘21 selected pages’ from my book ‘The Cadre’, please visit this link: Click here.

** To know how to take BCS preparation, please, go through my BCS preparation tips.

Finally, be advised that you must analyse the Syllabus and the questionnaires of the previous BCS exams. If you don’t undergo this process, you will have to waste your valuable time. You’ll have to suffer from the system loss resulted from the lack of a proper BCS Syllabus analysis, that is BCS Preliminary analysis and BCS Written syllabus analysis.

And you’ll require extra time to have a solid BCS preparation if you don’t do the due syllabus analysis of the BCS exam.

But this is good news for you that my book ‘The Cadre: BCS Exam Preparation Strategy-Start to Finish’ will offer you BCS Preliminary Syllabus analysis minutely and logically as per the 46 BCS circular.

    Dear Sir,

    So far I know, one can select his language either in Bengali or English in the BCS exam. Can I have the guide written in English?

    If no, let me know how can I download it by paying the amount online? I am staying out of Bangladesh.
