Leave a Comment

SSC CGL is a competitive exam based on the notion of testing candidate’s sharpness and accuracy. If your basics of the subjects of the syllabus of SSC-CGL are good, you can crack this exam by doing lots of practice. In this exam, practice plays a decisive role in your selection. In 45 days you can solve at least 90 practice sets or two sets every day. While doing practice with sets, you should pick out those questions which you find difficult to answer and try to understand the entire ABC of it. If you do your study in this way, you are assured to get selected.
Note: Clearing the first round, you will have to get through a skill-test round which depends on how good you are at typing. You are advised to start the practice on the system at your home or take a class for it right after you complete the written test exam.

  3. Time Management is the Key
In SSC CGL Exam, you get just 120 minutes for solving 200 questions. It means, you don’t even get 1 minutes for solving single question. So what you need to do is to attempt only those question in which you are confident enough. First of all, read the question at least once. If your preparation is good, you can easily decide whether you would be able to solve a particular question or not. If you are not familiar with any question, move to the next question without wasting time.
Revise & Practice
If you want to crack the written exam of SSC CGL exam, you need to have a strict look at your watch because you can’t let even a second go waste. In tier-1 exam, there are 200 questions that needs to get solved in 120 minutes which is not an easy task. You would get less than a minute to solve a single question. For getting better result, you need better Time Management which is not possible without proper Revision & Practice. Revise the topics you have already done and solve previous year questions and practice sets. It will really help.
Focus on Accuracy rather than Attempts
Considering the current format of SSC CGL Exam where there is negative marking for each wrong answer, it’s actually the “Accuracy” not the number of attempts that decides whether you will be selected or rejected. For Example, you can’t qualify even after attempting more than 150 questions if majority of your answers are incorrect. On the other hand, you can easily qualify after attempting just 120-130 questions with accuracy. So, Attempt only those questions in which there is no scope of error.
It’s almost impossible to attempt all 200 questions accurately in 120 minutes. So, you should make a target before exam and try to attempt only those questions in which you are confident.
Attempting Questions in Different Sections
General Awareness and English are two sections which doesn’t consume too much time. If you know answers, these sections will hardly take 20 minutes combined(both English and G.S section). We therefore recommend you to start with General Awareness Section. Once done, jump toEnglish Section. Other two sections are Reasoning and Maths. Out of these two, Reasoning section is considered lot more easier and thus consume less time so jump to “Reasoning Section“. At the end, solve questions of “Maths Section“.
Note – The above mentioned strategy is recommended by us. However, you can start with any section you want(depending upon your knowledge and strength in any particular subject).
