Super Vocabulary Quiz by the Best Coaching for CDS Exam

A very warm welcome to all our Shishyas

We hope you all are hale and hearty and completely focused on the task at hand. The competition is undoubtedly intense and the stakes are quite high, but with a positive mindset and exam oriented preparation we shall overcome all the odds.

Mentors from India’s Best Online CDS Coaching Classes & Govt. Job Preparation Institute, Vidya Guru have come to your aid now. So, you need not worry at all. All you need to do is work in the right direction.

Although we cannot really go out, yet we can engage in learning exercises inside our homes. So, let’s get started with our journey towards a stronger English language vocabulary bank.

Here, we would like to discuss something we have observed from years of our interaction with exam aspirants. The fear with English is that it is a foreign language and many are not comfortable with it may be because of the educational background or psychological barrier against learning this language. You have to start thinking in English if you really want to embrace this language. Think about your mother tongue, if somebody says something wrong, you identify it quickly and the same skill has to be developed in English grammar and vocabulary. Then you will be able to identify the mistakes easily.

Okay, so enough of our Guru Gyaan!! Let us move to the quiz that we have brought to you in this set. We have told you earlier also that do not focus on your marks in these quizzes, but learn and apply the words in other contexts. That is our main motto through these quizzes.

That is all from our side this time. As we have said time and again, our endeavor is to make you comfortable in what you are supposed to learn so that when you write the examination, you are daring enough to go there and attempt the paper without any apprehension. That comes with practice, confidence and also self-assessment.

The simple thing is that you should know yourself well, or else, you will never be able to crack the examinations. If you are good at something, exploit that to fetch marks. On the other hand, if you are not that good at something, hone your skills so that you can get yourself comfortable in that area also.

On that note, we leave you to ponder over what we have discussed above. Learn the words, assimilate the meanings and also application. Come back with more zeal to solve the next quiz.
