How to Score Better Marks in G.S Section in CGL Exam
  1. After analyzing G.S questions of last few years, it's quite clear that SSC repeat questions in G.S section. Around 50% questions are taken from previous year papers of SSC Exams like SSC CGL, CHSL, MTS, CDS, NDS etc. If you want to get better score, go through previous year papers. We highly recommend, G.S book by Kiran Prakashan which has around 7200+ previous year question.
  2. If you know answers, G.S section will hardly take 10 minutes. However, if you don't know the answers, don't try Tukkas because 99 out of 100 times, tukka doesn't work . You will easily lose 0.25 marks for an incorrect question.
  3. If you want to get good marks in G.S section, focus more on Science(physics+chemistry+bio) and polity.
  4. As far as Current Affairs questions are concerned, we have noticed that SSC doesn't ask too many questions from Current Affairs section. To answer current affairs questions, just participate in our daily current affairs quizzes. Keep yourself updated with 1 year current affairs like person in news(Army chiefs, Oscar winners, ICC player of the year etc), Books-authors, Government schemes etc.
  5. Don't forget to cover the current affairs upto 1 month before your exam. For example- if your exam is on 19th october, you should cover current affairs upto 5th october.
