While giving a Simple Strategy to Prepare for SSC CGL 2018, I will answer all queries coming to an Aspirants mind.

I shall start by mentioning Top 5 Queries asked about the SSC CGL Exam 2018

Many students who are willing to appear for SSC CGL 2018 say this “SSC Exam is scary, I feel I can never clear it. I get completely lost in the maths segment. There is no one to guide me sincerely”

The above story of fear may be of yours too. You only need some guidance and assistance to Crack the SSC Exam. That’s what I am here for.

You will be surprised after you hear about the success rate of SSC CGL. It is hardly 1%. It means that only 1 student out of 💯 or say 10 students out of 1000 students who appear in SSC Exam get selected.

This is the main reason behind so much dismay and anxiety over it. Psychologically, perhaps it is disheartening and creates nothing but distress. Most of the students waste their time thinking about pointless issues.

All it takes some will power, hard work and right approach to succeed in the SSC CGL Exam.

Here are some of top 10 queries and doubts I got from students who are preparing for the SSC Exam. This not only help you in overcoming your own doubts will also give you a broader perspectives about the myths.

1. How Tough is to Crack the SSC CGL Exam 2018?

This question  tops the list of most searched questions about the SSC CGL Exam 2018. It is therefore important to talk about this at first.

The answer to this question in one line is – “It is not really tough, But it is easy if you Prepare early and thoroughly”

There are some topics in the exam that creates panic for most of us. According to one survey, most candidates find Tier 1 comparatively easier, even I found it easier too, than Tier II.

But many Aspirants find the Quantitative Aptitude troublesome and little puzzling. However most students find it very tough when it comes to Tier 2.

A common advice to all SSC Aspirants is you must start early to crack the SSC CGL Exam 2018.

Though I am not a big fan of Coaching centres but to those students who are not able to prepare themselves or find it difficult to start, they can join a good coaching centre around.

Quick tips to start preparing for SSC CGL 

  1. For Quantitative Aptitude start with percentage, profit & loss, ratio & proportion, speed distance & time etc. questions. Remember, these could be very simple once you understand the shortcuts and tricks to solve them. But don’t forget to keep a track on time.
  2. Calculate the time you spend on every question, ideally it should be 1 minute per question. Create a practical and reasonable study schedule, keep maximum time for tricky and complicate segments or subjects.
  3. It is easy to detect your weak links after you solve a few previous years’ papers. Self- evaluation indeed goes a long way.
  4. Don’t forget to create your notes; they will turn out to be your biggest asset.
  5. To improve your English language, read and solve at least three passages daily, download vocabulary building app in your phone and keep learning new words. Try to play English vocabulary quiz. Similarly spare 20 minutes to practice grammar.
  6. While preparing for the general awareness section make sure that you focus more on static G.K. For example more than knowing the details of an issue or an event memorize the date, place and logistics aspect of it. Having multiple choices in G.K questions can sometimes lead to confusion, therefore memorizing the facts should be your ultimate goal, static G.K Includes Indian History, Art and Culture, Geography, health and environment and polity.

2. Which are the best SSC Coaching centers in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata etc?

Joining an SSC coaching centre can prove to be highly beneficial especially if you want to strengthen your weak areas, or if you are a student who feels less confident about self study.

You need to stay vigilant while selecting a coaching centre; the consequences of choosing a wrong coaching centre can not only lead to financial loss but most importantly your chance of succeeding in the exam.

Intense research about the SSC coaching centre can make you win the battle.  I highly recommend you the following coaching centers. You can investigate about them on your own end, but I have done a comprehensive Research myself and then recommending without any benefit.
