With just 1 days left for the SSC CGL 2015 Tier II Exam, candidates might be pouring their heart and soul in the preparation to grab their dream job. In this post, we are providing some SSC CGL Tier-2 Last Minute Tips that can prove beneficial to you.

SSC CGL Tier-2 : Last Minut Tips
1. Don't Stress
The time has come when you will take the exam for which you all must have been working really hard from last so many months. We know that you all are anxious and little worried about the exam and must be busy with your last minute preparations and revision. You all need to keep calm and try not to get stressed. Stress and Anxiety will only spoil things instead of helping. Some common effects of Stress are:

  • Headache
  • Rapid Heartbeat
  • Mental Blackouts
  • Restless Thoughts
  • Trouble in Concentration
  • Nausea
  • Dry Mouth
2.Don't study any New Topic

Don't read anything new topics or concept, just revise the topics you have already done. It has been observed that when you engage yourself in heavy preparation at last moment, you tend to mix up concept which can create confusion during exam.

3. Eat Light
Greasy foods induce lethargy and drowsiness so avoid them. Eating light will make your body feel lighter, letting you focus better. 

4. Revise & Practice
If you want to crack the written exam of SSC CGL 2015 Tier-2 exam, you need to have a strict look at your watch because you can't let even a second go waste. 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.

5.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.

6. 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 10-20 questions". 

7. How do i Attempt Maths Questions in Tier-2 Exam?
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 which you are confident in. You can follow below given strategy for getting the best result:
  • In first 15 Minutes - Have a look on all 100 questions and solve only those that take less than a minute to solve. Example of such topics are - Trigonometry, Algebra etc. Following this approach will ensure you don't miss easy questions. 
  • In next 30 Minutes : Once you are done with solving easiest questions, try to solve questions of topics Data Interpretation, Percentage, Time and work etc. Before attempting these questions, make sure that you have solved that kind of questions at home and know how to solve these questions. If you feel that it's not the one you have solved before, better leave it and move to other questions.
  • In Rest of the time: Attempt the other questions.
8. How to Attempt English Questions in Tier-2 Exams?
The strategy remains the same which means, focus on solving questions which you are strong and confident in. 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, Sentence Improvement, Direct-Indirect speech, Active Passive, CLOZE Tests, Comprehension and Sentence Rearrangement.

9. What to do in the time interval of 2 hours after first exam(Maths)?
After Maths exam, you get 2 hours. Many students waste their time in tension after their poor show. This is not the best approach. Instead of discussing Maths questions in these 2 hours, focus on revising your english topics like One word substitution, Idioms and phrases, Rules of Active-Passive & narration etc.

10. Is whitener Allowed in Exam?
No, Whitener is not allowed. It's official news(SSC has already posted this notice in its official website and also on admit card).

11.Reach Venue before 30 Minutes
Last year, Many students were not allowed to take the exam on arriving late. Hence, It's quite essential for the candidate to reach the examination centre before time. We advise you to reach the place 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 transportation 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.

12. Documents to Carry
Candidates should keep in mind to carry an 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.
