Tips For Group Planning Exercise :

  1. The description and instructions give the correct hints to solve the problem. When the GTO officer is reading out and describing the scene, concentrate on the map. Classify the problems, resources and helping material, to make a suitable plan.
  2. In GPE, Some problems need social knowledge to solve the problem. This social knowledge helps candidates to prioritize the problem. Lack of social knowledge can lead to an ineffective solution.
  3. The problems need to be classified correctly. The basic way of classifying is to give first priority to the life and second to the material damages. Giving much importance to red herring is time wastage.
  4. The plan has many resources to use, using resources in a sensible way takes you out of the problems.
  5. The style of solution writing matters to some extent.  The quality of content, solving problems from starting to end and comprehensive solutions is what matters.
  6. Keep the discussion to the point and calm.
