Tips and Tricks to Crack CGL 2014

  1. Focus on Smart Work rather than Hard Work - Out of complete syllabus, there are few topics which are very important for the exam. For example- Topics like - Percentage, profit & Loss, Trigonometry, Time & Work, Time & Distance, Geometry, Mensuration, Data Interpretation etc are extremely important whereas Topics like - Permutation and Combination, Probability etc are not that important. So, the best strategy is to leave less important topics and focus on more important topics. This approach is called "Focussed Study". In English, focus on Antonyms-Synonyms, One word Substitution,Idioms and Phrases, Spelling Mistakes, Error detection etc. As far as G.S section is concerned, give more time on Biology,History and Polity.
  2. Revision is the Key - Many students don't find much time to revise the topics they read. This is where they make mistake. Revision is the most important part so make a habit to revise the topics you read(Specially Maths). If possible, make a habit of writing important things or formula(in maths). We get mails regarding this problems where students inform us that when they face questions in exam, it appear easy to them but they still fail to solve them on time. That's only because lack of revision.
  3. Solve Mock Test Papers and Previous Year Papers - This part comes under revision as well because Mock test papers helps you to judge your preparation level before exam. After solving Mock Test papers, you would be able to know, how much you know about the syllabus. You can download the mock test paper in this website as well.

  4. Proper Time Management is the Key: Questions which are asked in SSC CGL Exam are not very tough but it's the "Time Management" which makes the difference. If you want to get good marks in CGL, you must be able to solve questions within 2 Hours. To accomplish this, you must make a timetable of how much time you should give to which section. An ideal approach is : 15 Minutes to General Awareness , 20 Minutes to English , 35 Minutes to Reasoning and Remaining 50 Minutes to Maths. Also remember that 10-15 minutes will be taken by filling of ovals.
  5. Which Section to Solve First - As i informed you earlier, Time management is the key so while deciding which section to attempt first, give importance to time which it takes. An ideal approach is to attempt sections in following manner : (1) General Awareness (As it takes less time) (2) English( It takes less time) , (3) Reasoning Section( The level of reasoning in CGL is not that tough. If you know, you can solve them in minutes) , at last (4) Mathematics ( because it can take time)
  6. Guesses doesn't Work - If you have already attempted SSC CGL exam in the past, you must be knowing that "Guesses doesn't work" so don't rely on Guesses in the exam. For getting a government job, students realy study hard and give their best so you will have to match their level. There is a provision of negative marking as well so if your guess failed, you will lose 1/4th marks.
