How much time is sufficient for Delhi Police exam preparation?

If you are looking for some number I can suggest that it takes approximately 3 months to prepare for Delhi police exams.

However, the number of months that you take for a particular exam preparation does not count but the amount of effort that you put in for whatever time you’ve decided on is what really matters.



How to clear Delhi Police exam in your first attempt? How difficult will it be to clear?

It is not that difficult to clear it in your first attempt.

Previous results show that students who were not that meritorious academically were also able to pass this exam.

It depends on the effort you are ready to put in while preparing for it.

The selection will be made based on marks obtained by you in PE, Medical Test, and Written Examination.

If you follow the standard approach and study consistently then it should not be very difficult for you.

Although, I am sharing this without knowing your previous academic pursuits so it will be slightly generic to comment. It is better to assess ones’ capacities and then look for advice.




Why do you fret so? Delhi Police exams aren’t that big an ordeal. Take time out, check previous years questions, prepare your time table and follow it as early as 2 months from exam day. Read about Devki Joshi.


If you know your capacities and have no doubts about joining the Delhi Police regiments then may the forces be with you. But when in doubt, talk to seniors in the career guidance industry.
