To clear SSC exam following are some tips and strategies:-
One of the most important and helpful tool to crack any entrance exam is to practice. Ensure that you have solved sufficient previous years’ question papers and that too in time pressure. This will increase your speed. Also do not forget to evaluate these papers to check your performance. After this identify your weak areas and pay due attention towards it. You will be given 2 hrs to solve 200 questions which means you have around 36 seconds per question, though it is not required to attempt all the questions. In general, if one is able to attempt 175-180 questions accurately there is a high possibility of getting interview calls.
Reasoning basically is related with logical thinking. The questions from this area are generally from areas like Number series, Coding-Decoding, Arrangement-Direction test, Non verbal ,Classification (odd one out) test, Mathematical operations, cubes and cubical dice test , Syllogisms , Statement conclusion etc. Make sure that you practice a lot for this section, get previous year question papers and notice the trend. Try to solve questions in time pressure, this will enable you to develop a habit of doing more questions in less time.
This section is divided into two parts in SSC .One is static GK and the other one is current affairs. Most of the students only focus on reading newspapers and monthly magazines to clear this section but, they don’t realize that almost 80%of the general awareness questions come from Static general knowledge and science. So, you have to make Science and Static your first priority. We can further divide his section is divided into four major parts.
In SSC exam history is only Indian history so, there is no need to read world history. Indian history is divided into three parts: Ancient, Medieval and Modern. Start with the NCERT history books of class 7th to 12th. But don’t read it very deeply and don’t try to cram all dates and names.
Focus only on physical and Indian Geography. No need to go through world geography. Some questions are also asked from economy but they are very few in number. Read NCERT of Geography from class 7th to 10th and economics book of 11th class only.
The general awareness section of SSC normally contains 35% of science based questions. But technology related current affairs are normally not asked in the exam. You can start with basic NCERT science books from 7th to 10th class.
For current affairs focus on the events and happening of past one year. Read at least one news paper daily. Try to read only the important information such as names of people and places in news, names of receivers of various awards etc. Also, go through the BUDGET as well as SSC usually asks questions from it.
Quantitative aptitude requires two things: 1) Conceptual Clarity and 2) Practice. The key areas of this section are Ratio and Partnership, Number theory, Average and Allegations, Time speed and distance, Algebra, Percentage, Data interpretation, Trigonometry and Geometry. Prepare these topics from class 8th,9th and 10th NCERT math books. Pay more attention towards Trigonometry, Percentage, Algebra and Geometry as maximum number of question come from these sections. In 2012 SSC increased the level of difficulty of the questions so, be prepared for difficult questions in the exam.
