SSC CGL is one of the most renowned and leading exams for graduates in India, as it offers most distinguished career options today. Qualifying SSC CGL 2019 is not a tranquil job, but it takes a lot of studies, practice, determination, and structured preparation.

There are innumerable candidates who try for this exam, but only the dedicated and diligent candidates get the opportunity to crack this highly competitive exam.  Therefore, to get mentioned in the list of these qualified students, you need to prepare well by focusing only on your studies and nothing else.


Here are some other tricks you can follow to clear this examination
  • Build a Proper Study Plan: Prepare a timetable, before you start studying for the exam, and follow it on regular basis. Build a proper strategy for all the sections of question paper.
  • Work on your Basics: When you are starting your preparation, start with basics, never look for shortcuts. Try to learn the fundamentals of all the topics and attain in-depth knowledge. Once you develop a command over these topics, thereafter you can switch to shortcuts or tricks for quick calculations.
  • Learn Short-cut Methods: To enhance your calculation speed focus on the short-cut techniques which will help you save your time to respond to the tough and tricky questions in the exam. To accumulate accuracy and speed practice as much and remember cubes, squares, tables, and square roots, etc.
  • Don’t use risky shortcuts: If you are not well-versed with any shortcuts or trick, then don't use them as this may head to mess and the wrong answer.
  • Regular Practice: “Practice makes a man perfect” as the quote itself defines its meaning that practice as much as you can until you get confident that you will surely succeed.  You can do this by practising previous year paper and mock test every day to increase your agility and efficiency. Try to solve previous year question papers as there you can find many varieties of questions which are repeated.
  • Practice Important Topics: Candidates also need to focus on important topics. Do chapter wise analysis and check which questions are most important and can come in the exam.
  • Focus on your weak areas: Try to work on your weak areas first, spend maximum time on these topics and subjects. Leave those topics which you find easy and you can do in a day. Devote extra time to your weak areas and less time to your strong areas.
  • Read the complete question first:  Candidates are advised to read the questions carefully and answer it well, as there are many candidates who refrain reading the full questions and then conclude on incorrect answer eventually.
  • Rule of Elimination: If confused in any question then use the process of elimination and try to get answers by it.
  • Avoid any guess works: Don't guess the answers on your own as this can lead to wrong answers and will increase negative marking. One more important thing to keep in mind is, don’t waste all your time only on one question move onto the next if you are not sure about the correct answer.
  • Time Management: Candidates are advised to allot proper time to all the subject and topics too. As said earlier, pay more attention to weak areas and solve them regularly. Don't forget to practice those topics which you are at, practice them time to time. Try to solve one question in one minute, you can do this by increasing your speed and using shortcuts. Remember, there is no sectional wise time-limit and no sectional cut-off. Your job is to maximize your score either by hook or by crook.
  • Try different strategy and select the best:  Start preparing subjectwise. Complete one subject or one topic then only move towards the next. Try different ways to attempt a question and the one you find best and easy go for it. This you can only do when you practice regularly. Mind which tactic works best for you.
  • Stay Fit: Last but not least, take care of your health, don't panic. Don't forget to take breaks while studying. Take proper hours of sleep and a healthy diet.
