“The ‘General Intelligence and Reasoning’ section is an easy one; and an attempt of 22+ questions (out of 25) is considered good. In fact, with a bit of effort and practice, you can score 45+ in this section,’ said Mayank Garg, Mentor, Career Launcher. According to him…

1) Analogy, Coding-Decoding, and Series cover almost half of the Reasoning portion.
2) There will be 7-8 questions on Word Formation, Matrix, Venn Diagram, Blood Relations, Directions, etc.
3) About 5 questions on Visual Reasoning (Paper Folding, Paper Cutting, Mirror/Water Images, etc.) are easy.

The syllabus of the ‘General Awareness’ section is vast. Hence, you need to pick and choose the subjects to focus on. Here are some points to consider:

1) The syllabus of Polity and Economics is relatively limited (6-7 questions)
2) Weightage of questions on Current Affairs is increasing year by year. So, you should concentrate on current affairs of the 6 months prior to the exam (4-5 questions)
3) Of the three Science subjects (Chemistry, Biology, Physics) choose one (5-6 questions)
4) Give importance to Indian Geography and Modern History (7-8 questions)

The ‘Quantitative Aptitude’ section will require your maximum attention and time devotion. It will also play a vital role in SSC CGL Tier 2.

1) Most of the questions asked in Tier 1 exam in this section are from Advanced Mathematics, i.e., Geometry, Mensuration, Algebra, and Trigonometry (12-13 questions)
2) Questions from Data Interpretation are easy (3-5 questions)
3) Questions from Arithmetic are of easy-to-moderate-level of difficulty (8-10 questions)

The ‘English Comprehension’ section is crucial because of the practice required and its high weightage in the Tier 2 exam.

1) Vocab is important, as 8 out of the 25 questions are on Antonyms, Synonyms, One-Word Substitution, Idiom Phrases, etc.
2) Questions from Grammar, especially those on Cloze Test, Sentence Correction, and Error Spotting, should be attempted
3) Narration and Voice are also part of the SSC Tier 1 exam now

2) Take topic-wise tests to Groom your level of preparation and speed (a useful tool is Career Launcher’s Test Gym)
3) Start writing the Mocks for SSC CGL to take the Leap in ensuring your preparation is of the required level for the exam.

Exam Strategy:
