CMPFO Exam Pattern, Papers & Books

This takes me back to the promise made in my previous blog post titled:  Coal Mines Provident Fund Organisation (CMPFO) Recruitment 2013 ...

CMPFO Inspector & LDC Exam Pattern, Papers & BooksThis takes me back to the promise made in my previous blog post titled: Coal Mines Provident Fund Organisation (CMPFO) Recruitment 2013 to provide you the prep materials for CMPFO Exam for PF Inspectors & Lower Division Clerks (LDC). As I had told you in that article, I would discuss here the pattern of CMPFO exam for these two positions and than provide you the Sample papers and Books which you can use to prepare for the exam.

In the very beginning a note of caution - prep/study materials available on the net for CMPFO Exam is very scarce and is almost non-existent. Hence I would be using exam prep materials for very similar exam (IBPS CWE for PO & Clerk & SSC CHSL exam) to tell you how to jump start your preparation.

CMPFO Exam Pattern/Syllabus for Inspectors & LDC:
Coal Mines Provident Fund Organisation (CMPFO) in its website has given the exam pattern/syllabus for Inspectors & LDC. You can click here to download the CMPFO Exam syllabus/pattern.

As you can find from above document, the written exam for both Inspectors & LDC is of 200 marks for a test duration of 2 hours. There is negative marking of -0.25 marks for any wrong answer. The test sections of two posts (Inspectors & LDC) although are similar, but are not identical. It is because the eligibility required for both the posts are different - for CMPFO Inspectors you need to be a graduate & for LDC Inspectors you need to be a Class-XII pass.

CMPFO Exam Pattern/Syllabus for Inspectors
CMPFO Exam Pattern/Syllabus for Inspectors
CMPFO exam pattern for Inspectors is very similar to IBPS CWE (Common Written Exam) for PO as you can find in the comparative analysis of the exam pattern in the table at right. The test sections are identical and even the mark distribution among test sections is same except very minor difference (there is no Computer Knowledge test for CMPFO Inspectors and also "English Language" in CMPFO Inspectors carries a higher mark). Also, eligibility for CMPFO Inspector as well as IBPS CWE PO is same: Graduation! So you can use the prep materials for IBPS CWE PO (Bank Probationary Officers exam) to prepare for CMPFO Inspectors exam.

CMPFO Exam Pattern/Syllabus for LDC:
CMPFO Exam Pattern/Syllabus for LDC
CMPFO exam pattern for LDC is also very similar to IBPS CWE for Clerks as you can find in the comparative analysis of the exam pattern in the table at left. The test sections are almost identical and even the mark distribution among test sections is similar except very minor difference (there is no General Awareness test for CMPFO exam for LDC). Also, eligibility for CMPFO LDC as well as IBPS CWE Clerks is same: Class-XII pass! So you can use the prep materials for IBPS CWE Clerk (Bank Clerks exam) to prepare for CMPFO LDC exam. In addition, you can also use the prep materials for SSC CHSL (Combined Higher Secondary Level) Exam) to prepare for CMPFO LDC exam, as the eligibility are similar (Class-XII pass), both are for recruitment of clerks and even the skill test eligibility is same: Typing Speed 35 words per minute in English OR 30 words per minute in Hindi on Computer. 

CMPFO Exam Papers for Inspectors 
So based on exam test sections of similar exams, I am posting below following list of sample/model papers for CMPFO Exam Papers for Inspectors.
