How to Prepare for the OSSC Welfare Extension Officer Exam

Every year thousands of candidates prepare for the exam conducted by the Odisha Staff Selection Commission for the post of Welfare Extension Officer.

A good preparation strategy will help you learn important exam skills such as time management and concept building. Take a look at the following tips and tricks to keep in mind while formulating your exam strategy for the OSSC Welfare Extension Officer Exam 2022:
