HOW TO PREPARE FOR TGT/PGT ENGLISH FOR NVS RECRUITMENT-2022

Hello friends,

The greatest dilemma one has before giving an exam is always, where to start with our preparation for the examination. The JNV – PGT & TGT written exam is scheduled and the syllabus looks very wide. As expected, it isn’t an easy task. So, let’s go step wise to know how to start our preparation.

Section A – Reading Comprehension. It is the ability to comprehend, analyse and interpret unseen texts. This part can’t be completed in a week’s days or a month’s days. It requires great concentration, presence of mind. Reading shouldn’t be done quickly or in a hurry. In any exam skimming the passage for specific information, kills time. Don’t read the text several times, instead read the passage in the first time with reasonable speed and underline the new expressions or the expressions which are striking. It is usually preferrable to attempt the reading comprehension at the end of the exam at your pace.  Run your fingers through the passage while reading, it improves the concentration and dismisses the mind from being wavered.

Section B – Just like reading comprehension, writing too requires practice. Give more importance to the format of the writing skills, key words and expressions. As Bacon says “Reading maketh a full man”. Such important skill needs a lot of concentration and application. Understanding the content and applying the knowledge needs focus and years of practice.

Section C- Grammar and Usage. It is obvious that functional grammar is very helpful than the structural grammar. As one prepares for the exam in English, one reads several novels and stories. Biographies and texts usually give practical knowledge, even then having understanding about the Parts of Speech, Figures of Speech, structures and syntax is a must. In the written exam for TGT (subjective) in the year 2012, there was a question as,

Identify the parts of the speech of the underlined words in the sentences given below.

  1. The child is fast asleep.
  2. The train runs very fast.
  3. Sita is in fasting today.
  4. Fasting and Feasting is a novel by Anita Desai.

Although the question paper isn’t subjective, there is every possibility for such questions to be seen. Thorough knowledge of grammar is a must when a candidate applies for the position of English PGT/TGT.

Section D – The most crucial section which decides the destiny is the literature section. The syllabus is vast, there are many things to remember. In reading and writing skills the application part takes the prominent position but in Literature, it is the identification of the characters. There isn’t much to understand. For example, you read all the novels of RK Narayan and understood every story and enjoyed the literature (this is the prime moto of any story) but the questions in the exam checks your identification. “Who is the speaker in the above lines” is the question, one must remember the characters of the stories. Is it Ramani, in ‘The Dark Room’ or Krishna in ‘The English Teacher’, if the candidates fails to recall the protagonists or the characters then years of reading the novels turns to be of no use. So, presence of mind and careful analysis is important in deciphering the answers.

It is said that half preparation is done the very day when one acquires the study material. Instead of preparing the content with the help of practice papers, one must first know the contents of the literature, then practice with the test papers. Different publication books on UGC-NET/SET/JRF English Literature are handy in the preparation for PGT/TGT. Many different publications are available in the market, like ‘Toppers Notes, Bookhive, Barron’s Study Keys and so on. I personally prefer Trueman’s Specific Series, (we have number of books and editions available in the market) as it has vivid description of different ages, writers, content followed by several practice papers.

Finally, I conclude this with a suggestion that whatever one does before the exam, it must be done with positive attitude. Don’t be carried away by the figures and statistics as, none of us are in need of more than one position.  Instead of looking for short-cuts, take a straight route.

కింగ్ జార్జి ఆసుపత్రి, కేజీహెచ్‌గా మనందరికీ పరిచయం. పదకొండేళ్ల వయసులో మొదటిసారి నన్ను విశాఖ సముద్ర తీరానికి తీసుకెళ్తూ మా మేనమామ ఈ ఆసుపత్రిని చూపించారు. ఆ మరుసటి ఏడాది మా నాన్నగారు మళ్ళీ ఈ ఆసుపత్రి చూపిస్తూ, ‘ఇక్కడ చదివిన మన ఊరివాళ్ళు గొప్ప వైద్యులయ్యారు, అలాగే నువ్వు కూడా ఇక్కడే చదువుకోవాలనుంది’ అని చెప్పారు.
వందేళ్ళ చరిత్ర కలిగి ఉత్తరాంధ్ర ప్రాణదాయినిగా పేరుగాంచిన ఈ ఆసుపత్రిలో నేను తొలుత వైద్య విద్యార్థిగా, తరువాత వైద్యుడిగా, అంతేకాకుండా నేనూ ఒక రోగిగా, నా కుటుంబ సభ్యులు కొంతమంది ఇక్కడ రోగులుగా చికిత్స పొందుతున్నప్పుడు వాళ్ళకి సేవకుడిగా, చివరగా ఇదే ఆసుపత్రి ఎదురుగా ఒక క్లినిక్ పెట్టి ప్రైవేట్ ప్రాక్టీస్ చేసి ఎన్నో జ్ఞాపకాలను పదిలపరుచుకున్నాను. ఇవన్నీ కేజీహెచ్తో ఎనలేని బంధాన్ని నెలకొల్పితే, నేను రాసుకున్న కథల్లో అప్రయత్నంగానో లేక నేనెప్పుడూ ఈ పరిసర ప్రాంతాలు దాటి ఆలోచించకపోవటం వల్లనో ప్రతి కథలో కేజీహెచ్ ఒక నేపథ్యంగా మారింది. అందుకని నా ఈ మొదటి కథాసంపుటికి ‘కేజీహెచ్ కథలు’ అని పేరు పెట్టాను.
ఇన్నేళ్ళలో ఇక్కడ నేను ఎంతో మంది రోగుల్ని, వాళ్ళ రోగాల్ని, బాధల్ని, కన్నీళ్ళని చూశాను. నయమైన వారి ఆనందాన్ని కూడా చూసాను. ఇక్కడే వైద్యం నేర్చుకున్నాను, వైద్యం చేశాను. ఈ క్రమంలో ఎన్నో అనుభవాలు పోగేసుకున్నాను. వాటన్నింటికీ అక్షరరూపం ఇవ్వలేకపోయినా కొన్ని మాత్రం రాసి ఇలా మీ ముందుకు తీసుకొచ్చాను.

READING COMPREHENSION-9

In some cities and towns all over the world, the high volume of traffic is a problem. When we see this situation in light of our country, it focuses on rapid growth of urbanisation and also the industrialisation. None of this can be curbed as the industrialisation is the hope of our future and urbanisation is the crippled political outcome.
Once, whenever we spoke about the traffic problems, the core discussed was about the air pollution and sound pollution. Nonetheless, the pollution remained as it is giving way to the other problems. This is due to the growth in population and the growing need of the changing times. The life style has changed. The social and economic standards of the citizens changed. The craze among youth on new vehicles have grown rapidly. Even, elders who once used bicycles and went on foot, now interested in vehicles. Vehicles are the symbols of social estate.
We have been introducing several measures to curb the traffic. Governments have educated the masses enough to use the public transport for several years, yet, it yielded no results. The reasons behind are varied but the impact of the rapid growing traffic has become challenging. The growing accidents on highways during nights are alarming.
We engineered the bridges, introduced the speed breakers and signalled every corner, the highways are broadened, yet the problem is invincible. What can be done to improve this situation? Now, the goal is not in the court of the government alone. The citizens should also be alert and contribute a little as the growing traffics result in traffic jams resulting a heavy loss of time on roads. This results on the commerce and economy of the nation as the trade too gets hindered.

  1. What is the focus of the passage?
    a) Accidents
    b) Urbanisation
    c) Pollution
    d) Traffic and its effect
  2. What did the government educate the masses about?
    a) Growing accidents
    b) Need to use public transport
    c) Need to be cautious about pollution
    d) Growing industrialisation
  3. What is the cause of the high-volume traffic in light of the country ‘India’?
    a) Ruralisation and population
    b) Urbanisation and population.
    c) Ruralisation and industrialisation
    d) Urbanisation and industrialisation.
  4. What is the hope of the country?
    a) New Vehicles
    b) Industrialisation
    c) Commerce
    d) Air pollution
  5. Find out the synonym of the word ‘restraint’ from the given passage?
    a) Curb
    b) Hinder
    c) Rapidly
    d) Alarming

READING COMPREHENSION-8

I strongly disagree to the notion that the social networking sites have had a huge negative impact on both individuals and society. This is an archaic line of thought as, the recent times, after the pandemic, the entire world has witnessed the significance of the social media. Almost for a year when the world is locked in the houses in fear of the virus, it was the social media which connected us to the family and relatives. Even the one who is living far has took instructions from the doctors and near and dear through the social media.
Ever since the invention or discovery of new thing, for certain time it is usually believed that the entire human kind would shortly be enslaved by the latest inventories. People weren’t positive to the invention of a car or the invention of an aeroplane. It took a lot of time to let the nuance occupy the prominent space. Even social media was also received with such contempt. Nevertheless, now the world has seen the powerful and affectionate hand of the social media. Presently, it is the apple of the eye of every country. The social media is ruling the world of advertisements. It is the easiest way to get to the crowd and most affectionate way to tender the minds of the users. With just a click the messages reaches to millions. Now, even the Prime Minister of the country Mr. Modi tweets or shares his views on the worldly affairs through the social media. In certain places it is the social media which helped the police in reaching the accused or even the culprit.
Once, making a video is a very expensive and creative work which only a selected chunk would handle. Now, even the kids of grades 4 & 5 are able to make videos with the help of technology and they send it to their near and dear just with a click. How wonderful, it is to think that several people became celebrities just with a small fiber piece in their hands.

Any new idea is not immediately welcome, so is the case with the social media. Now, the day starts and ends with the sending a message or watching a show in YouTube. Sending a tweet or liking a picture in Instagram. Surfing the old pictures from the Google to uploading a selfie in Facebook. The times have changed, so we are. The mark of social media is evident even in the sector of education. Social media is the latest teacher. It repeats the same lesson without an ounce of difference and can teach the same topic without a minute of boredom. Its illustrations are so illustrious that they make a way to the heart and settles in the brain in a concrete picture.

READING COMPREHENSION-7

I believe that children should be free to do what they wish in their free time. In the name of organised activities in the free time, most parents ruin the actual self of the children. It is to be understood by every parent that children are not immature. They must be treated as individuals. They must be given a chance to express their interests and ideas. One must understand that their free time is not to be ruined in the name of extra care. Our ancestors had no extra care or attention by their parents nonetheless they enjoyed their lives in the green fields, playing with their friends in mangroves and running in wild.
Do the present generation have this freedom? Do they know the pain and pleasure in the fields? Do they really know what happiness is? We often see young kids with spectacles, obesity, lethargy. Isn’t this because of the modern lifestyle?
The kernel of the point is, one must be free to live the life as he/she wishes. In the name of organised activities if their childhood is stripped, instead of excelling in the task given, they might end up helpless and their childhood is spent in mere care and dismay. Blake, the English poet, rightly points that “if the buds are nipped in tender years, how can we see the blossoms.” Similarly, when the children are restricted from freedom to express themselves, how can we see the creative future generations. They lose their interest in life.
There are exceptional cases where extra care helped a child to turn into a creative individual. Such, child prodigy and their parents are appreciated, although the suggestion goes that that doesn’t imply to every individual who is just a normal person and wishes to lead a normal yet happy life.

  1. Who should have the command over the free time of children?
    a. Parents
    b. Teachers
    c. Children
    d. Grand parents
  2. Find out the word similar to ‘center’ from the passage.
    a. Kernel
    b. Ruin
    c. Ancestors
    d. Strip
  3. Who had no extra care while they were children?
    a. Present children
    b. Parents
    c. Forefathers
    d. Kids
  4. What is the passage about?
    a. Free time management
    b. Child prodigy
    c. Ancestors
    d. Happy life
  5. Identify the antonym of ‘Lethargy’
    a. Lack of Enthusiasm
    b. Vigour
    c. Lack of Vigour
    d. Extreme drowsiness

                 CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS

It is said that people should follow the customs and traditions when they start to live in a new country. Do you really agree to this? It is really difficult to come to a conclusion on this notion as, today, many Indians have settled abroad. From times immemorial we have foreign settlements in our mother land too. In places like Goa, Coorg, Assam we see a mixed culture of native Indians and foreigners who settled here. It is very difficult a task now to find out their origin also.
The saying goes as ‘Be a Roman in Rome’ refers to the importance of adapting yourself to the customs of the people who are in a certain place. Customs and traditions are age old practices which can’t be toppled in a day, at the same time, one can’t be conservative and follow it as it is. When we are the part of a new habitation, the first thing which gets affected is the language. To have a conversation with the people of the locality and get our things done, the first thing a person does is to learn the language and to imitate the localites in gestures. Slowly, yet steadily without the knowledge of the person himself, he starts to change many things, finally effecting their culture and tradition too.
Today, many Indians have settled abroad but are still Indians by heart. This happens when the person, after getting accustomed to this new lifestyle, one day realizes that a great deal of change has accumulated, resulting a loss of their identity. Meanwhile, this shapes into nostalgia. Finally, such a person starts to crave to enhance their own custom and tradition, which has already compromised with their way of living.
Henceforth, it is evident that when we settle in abroad, we must change our culture to adopt the culture of the country where we settle, nonetheless remain an ardent follower or lover of one’s own culture and tradition. ‘Remember, change is the only permanent notion in any nation. So, instead of fretting about cultural exchange, enjoy the fun of it.
Answer the following questions that follows:

  1. What happens when a person settles in foreign lands?
    a) Cultural instability
    b) Cultural tolerance
    c) Cultural exchange
    d) None of the above
  2. What is the meaning of the quote ‘Be Roman in Rome’?
    a) Everyone must change to look like a Roman.
    b) People of Rome too don’t look like Romans.
    c) To make oneself suitable to the new place.
    d) To make oneself conservative to the customs and traditions.
  3. What is the most inevitable thing according to the passage?
    a) Change
    b) Nostalgia
    c) Conservative
    d) Imitate
  4. What can’t be toppled in a day?
    a) Knowledge
    b) Age old customs and traditions
    c) Wisdom
    d) Adaptation
  5. Pick up the synonym of the word ‘ancestry’.
    a) Adapt
    b) Adopt
    c) Adept
    d) Origin

LIFE SKILLS
You are a Scion of Ikshvaku yet you are lost in the market yard not knowing how to het grocery. You are a topper of IIT but can’t manage a square meal in the absence of your family. In these situations what fun is it to brag you with superlatives. Meanwhile, the children on streets whom we fondly call urchins and brats excel in meeting their ends. Now, the question raises as ‘What for are we striving in the schools?’ to make rubber stamps! Or white colored puppets!
The life skills mark their identity in every day’s life. The hen which fights pitched battles with Eagles, birds and even the people of the vicinity in order to save its’ chicken, leaves the young ones to manage themselves on attaining age. On the other hand, human beings go with spoon feeding to show the world that they take good care of their family. When the conch shell of parents plays in the ears how can a child play in the grounds? Without practical knowledge of ice and fire, how can that man taste the life? Who can take thrill in pleasure without the practical knowledge of a morsel of pain? Finally, What is a day, without a night?
When a question in competitive exam comes with word limit, we compress our words even when the thought gushes in torrents. Nevertheless, we expand the topic without a hint of idea about the same. Similarly, in our day to day life too one needs to manage. Often, we see youth standing still with lack of expression when an auto-driver or a shopkeeper cussing them with words they never heard or used. Even, they fumble for words to propose a girl of their choice, who is a close pale.
The situation looks grave when a graduate or a student from board classes find themselves in a tight spot to fill an application or to write a letter. The society grieves for producing such uneducated literates.
Here, the ‘LIFE SKILLS’ surface and mock the system. Changes are to be made to strengthen the spine of the nation. To prepare the youth for tomorrow, tomorrow’s yesterday should be strong. Poet’s celebrated nature and beauty, film makers have celebrated love and hatred. Let’s celebrate life with special skills while giving a little freedom to the tiny hands to throw a stone on the ripe mangoes, to run and fall on the hedges, to hear and assimilate some shit. We have grown hearing the celibacy of Bheeshma and fantasy of Krishna, let’s contribute a little lunacy to the next generation.


Answer the following questions that follows:

  1. What is the meaning of the phrase ‘the country grieves for producing such uneducated literates?
    a) Country is happy about the literates
    b) Country is unhappy about the literates
    c) Country is unhappy as the educated behaves like uneducated, when it comes to life skills.
    d) Country is unhappy as the uneducated behaves like educated, when it comes to life skills.
  2. What does the phrase ‘tomorrow’s yesterday’ refers to?
    a) Tomorrow
    b) Today
    c) Yesterday
    d) Day before yesterday.
  3. What is the source of developing the life skills among children?
    a) Freedom to play and have hands on practical knowledge.
    b) Freedom to become Bheeshma and Krishna
    c) Not to spoil their freedom by playing in the grounds
    d) Concentrate on studies.
  4. Identify the figure of speech used in the statement ‘Here, the ‘LIFE SKILLS’ surface and mock the system’.
    a) Hyperbole
    b) Simile
    c) Metaphor
    d) Personification
  5. Identify the synonym of the word ‘Proximity; the state of being near’ from the Para 2.
    a) Conch
    b) Vicinity
    c) Pitch
    d) Morsel

GK 96: WORLD POETRY DAY QUIZ

Held every year on 21 March, World Poetry Day celebrates one of humanity’s most treasured forms of cultural and linguistic expression and identity. Practiced throughout history – in every culture and on every continent – poetry speaks to our common humanity and our shared values, transforming the simplest of poems into a powerful catalyst for dialogue and peace.

UNESCO first adopted 21 March as World Poetry Day during its 30th General Conference in Paris in 1999, with the aim of supporting linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increasing the opportunity for endangered languages to be heard. World Poetry Day is the occasion to honour poets, revive oral traditions of poetry recitals, promote the reading, writing and teaching of poetry, foster the convergence between poetry and other arts such as theatre, dance, music and painting, and raise the visibility of poetry in the media. As poetry continues to bring people together across continents, all are invited to join in.( Source UNESCO Website)

Reading Comprehension-4

It is true that every individual is responsible for his/her own happiness, nonetheless the undisposed fact is, happiness depends on external factors like your social status, friends and even financial status. This is so because we aren’t monks.
To begin with, a well settled man is open to speak and express his thought, wherein a poor man’s tongue should always lose the edge. What brings all of us here is our education. Can we expect the same freedom of expression from an uneducated? Without freedom of expression, without access to riches, attaining happiness is a rarity.
Often, we see people saying happiness is a state of mind. The fact is it is a state of mind for a well settled person. Truth always changes and wisdom is in understanding the fact. In many cases people earn to their posterity. I this process they lose the most promising relations, only to repent later on their loss, for such people it is quite perfect to think that the person is responsible for his/her own happiness as having everything which a common man craves for, yet is unhappy. Nevertheless, the poor too enjoys life provided they limit their needs. To me, happiness depends not only on the state of mind. Let us compare the life of two kids. A rich boy who is bereaved of his mother, envies the slum neighbor’s mother’s hug, at the same time the kid in the slums aspire to attend school like the former . Here it is evident that happiness depends on your aspirations. Let’s see the third fellow who has parents and takes regular schooling but is jealous of his friend who is a great dancer.
Henceforth, happiness lies in fulfilling aspirations. After reaching the goals one can feel satisfied therefore limit your needs, limit your aspirations to the fullest of your potential and strive to reach your targets. On reaching the target, every individual is responsible for one’s happiness.

Answer the following questions that follows:

  1. What is the passage about?
    a) Hard work c) Aspirations
    b) Happiness d) Goals
  2. As per the passage, what is happiness?
    a) Happiness is a state of mind.
    b) Happiness depends on an individual.
    c) Happiness has rarely some importance.
    d) Happiness is a state of mind of a well settled person.
  3. What is the aspiration of the poor kid?
    a) To be happy with his mother.
    b) To be bereaved of his mother.
    c) To attend schooling as the rich kid.
    d) He doesn’t aspire at all.
  4. Find out the synonym of the phrase ‘to take away someone’ from the passage given above.
    a) Bereave c) Potential
    b) Aspire d) Posterity
  5. Replace the word ‘nonetheless’ from the first paragraph with the best option given below.
    a) And b) But
    b) Yet d) so

Note: Only key points are given. No quiz from this topic.

Participative Management and Total Quality Management (TQM) in libraries appear Well suited for each other. Both are “two systems of continuous improvement and centred on the needs of customers”. In participative management individuals or employees share in the vision making process and arrive at decisions. The structures and styles of participative management create conditions at work which enable staff to realize their potential, make greater use of their professional training and thus Improve the effectiveness of the service Bred. But Total Quality Management is a process which focuses on understanding customer needs and improving customer service and satisfaction. The TQM approach shifts the focus continuous improvement in systems and processes. Its motto could be “continue to improve it even if it aren’t broke.” Continuous improvement rests on the simple premise that a structured, problem-solving process produces better results than an unstructured one. Instead of just trying to “do better”
in an undefined, intuitive way, continuous improvement can enable libraries to set measurable goals based on quantitative performance indicators, and to monitor progress towards those goals.

Mechanistic : Operational activities are based within the framework of procedural rules and directives, designed to deal with a specified range of situations.
Process : In organization development, the way in which people in groups behave and interact when they are setting objectives, solving problems or introducing changes.
Self-actualisation : A persons characterized states of maturity, independence self-understanding and a positive attitude toward developing and integrating his capabilities, talents and
aspirations in terms of the opportunities within his environment.
Stake Holders : Persons who take an interest in the library, or who have the capacity to influence its ability to achieve its objectives.
