BCS Tips

B.C.S is one of the most difficult exams you face in search of a career in Bangladesh. As you all know, B.C.S start with a Preliminary exam. This exam is considered to be the toughest of all the exams a candidate face in the entire process. You got just 60 minutes to answer 100 questions and the syllabus could be regarded as an Ocean! These two things combined - make the Preliminary most challenging. Ironically though, scores of preliminary exam are not added in the selection process. So, all you need to do is pass.
