FAQ and Last Hour Tips for SSC CGL Tier-2 Exam

Practice, Practice and Practice
If you want to crack the written exam of SSC CGL 2014 Tier-1 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 Practice. Practice makes a person perfect so practice previous year questions and solve questions of pratice sets. It will really help.

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, jumpt to English 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 jumpt to "Reasoning Section". At the end, solve questions of "Maths Section". 

Time Management Strategy
Give 10-12 minutes to "General Awareness" section, 15-20 minutes to English Section,20-25 minutes to "Reasoning" and rest of time to "Maths Section". Remember, you need at least 50-60 minutes for solving 35-45 questions in mathematics. Remember, Tukka doesn't work at all so don't try Tukka or Guesses. If you don't know any question, it's better to leave it because a wrong answer can deduct your 0.25 marks.

 Filling Oval takes too much time. How to save my time during exam?
Actually, students follow two approaches to fill ovals, one to fill it question by question and other to fill it after attempting all the questions. According to us, the first approach is time consuming while the other is more feasible to make mistakes. We therefore suggest you to follow a middle approach i.e "Fill ovals after completing every 10-15 questions". 

 How to attempt questions in Maths?
During Exam, every student feels that he/she know how to solve each and every question but the key is,  how to solve these question in 2 hours. Attempt only those question in which you are confident enough. We suggest you to start with Data Interpretation questions. Once done, jump on questions of Advanced Mathematics which are less time consuming. But again, this approach depends on- which is your stronger part.

 How to Attempt English Questions in Tier-1 Exam?
The strategy remains the same which means, focus on solving questions in which you are strong and confident. Normally, students start with "Comprehension" section. We don't recommend this approach. We suggest you to start with finding errors. The order of attempting questions should in following manner: Error Findings, Synonyms, Antonyms, Idioms and phrases, One word Substitution,  Comprehension and Sentence Rearrangement.

Yes, Whitener is allowed. It's official news(SSC has already posted notice in its official website), so don't take tension.

Now only few days are left. What to do?
Now when only few days are left for exam, so don't go for any new topic. Try to solve Mock Test and Previous Year Papers. We recommend you the practice book of "Kiran Prakashan". Check how much you are getting and what topics are creating problem for you. Again, Patience is the key as you can't complete whole syllabus of SSC Tier-1 in just 10 days. Practice topics in which you are too strong and can't lose marks. Time management is extremely important so try to solve questions quickly. At the end, we advise you to brush up your basic concepts.

Reach Venue before 30 Minutes
It's quite essential for the candidate to reach the examination centre before time. We advise you to reach theplace 30 minutes prior to the time of examination. This will help you to avoid all kind of discomfort and problem that may arise due to traffic jams and other transporation issues. A better approach is to visit the examination center a day before the examination so that you can get an idea about the exact location of your exam center.

Documents to Carry

Candidates shouldkeep in mind to carry an two xerox copies of Id proof(Voter Id card, PAN Card, College ID Card etc),two Passport size photograph and an admit card. Carrying these documents will keep you away from all the problems that can arise regarding your identity. 

At the end, Revision is Necessary

After completing the question paper and answering all the known questions, you should check the answers throughly. Revise the answer sheet. If any wrong option is filled, you can use whitener to change it.
