THINGS TO DO DURING UPCOMING SSC EXAMS PREPARATION

To score high and get the choicest post and location in any of your SSC EXAMS there are some significant tips to follow or things to do during SSC EXAM PREPARATIONS these are:

  1. Routine Practice:

Develop the habit of practicing previous year paper and mock test every day to improve your speed and accuracy. Daily solve previous year papers as there are many questions which are repeated.

  1. Frame an appropriate study plan: Make a systematic study strategy and fixed time table for all the sections of question paper. Follow it regularly.
  1. Practice significant Topics: Aspirants can have a thorough look at the chapter-wise analysis as given in the official notification of the exam and focus on the important topics first.
  1. Give more focus to your weak areas: Candidates should try to focus on their respective weak areas. They should spend more time humanizing them. Give more time to your scrawny areas and less time to your sturdy areas.
  1. Always read the entire question initially: Students are generally found doing the mistake of reading incomplete questions and arriving at incorrect answer eventually. It is highly recommended to read the questions cautiously and check what is being asked.
  1. Use the rule of elimination: It is highly recommended to use the method of elimination in puzzling options and endeavor to get answers by it.
  1. Avoid making wild guesses: Guesswork could lead you to wrong answers and will augment negative marking. Also, don’t waste much time on one question and move onto the next if you are not sure about the right answer.
  1. Practice time management skills: Devote additional time to sections that you are good at. This will guarantee that you can successfully use the time duration of the exam. Always bear in mind that there are no sectional time limits and no sectional cut-offs. Therefore your job is to make the most of your score however you can.

THINGS TO AVOID DURING UPCOMING SSC EXAMS PREPARATION

1. Never deviate from the Target

Most of the aspirants are preparing for SSC CGL also simultaneously preparing for other competitive exams such as SBI PO. It makes the exam preparation unhealthy for one particular exam to ace effectively. It is highly recommended that one should prepare for only one exam because the testing format and type of questions level varies although they have similar syllabuses. Fix your goal and be dedicated.

2. Avoid reading more than one resource book for concept learning

There is no ending for the preparation procedure, especially for the general awareness section in Tier-I and general studies (finance and economics) section in Tier-II. Reading multiple books for a single concept will lead to vagueness. Therefore, it is suggested you choose one eminent book and start reading the concepts. The same goes for other sections such as English comprehension and statistics.

3. Not practicing Online Mock Tests

If you are not taking an online exam practice sets then it makes the job tough in the final examination day. Now SSC holds online exam hence offline practice does not work for the final exam preparations. There is a need for online mock test series to be practiced. Do not avoid it.

4. Avoid ignoring accuracy

Although attempting the whole SSC CGL question paper is optimistic yet it should not at the cost of negative marking. Aspirants must stick to their time while practicing the questions because 0.50 marks will be deducted for every wrong answer in Tier-I. So, augment your speed along with accuracy.

5. Not concentrating on the Basic Concepts

The Tier-I will kick-start at the end that means aspirants have enough time to prepare for the basic concepts in all the sections. Practicing the questions with no mastering the basic concepts will get you a wrong answer in the exam.  SSC EXAMS requires more practice, one should complete the basic concepts in less than a week.

6. Avoid pushing significant topics to solve at the end

Always be smart with your preparation and master the important topics first. By analyzing the previous years' question papers, one can review the weight age of the topics. It is advisable to identify the topics with high weight age first or else you might end up avoiding at the end due to short of time.

7. Using too many shortcuts

Shortcuts are necessary in the examination, especially for SSC EXAMS because a test-taker will have less than a minute to answer each question. Never apply any of the shortcuts that confuses you as it will devour much time.

8. Ignoring other Sections

While doing exam preparation many students feel that being strong in one or two sections will be sufficient to qualify the exam. This type of loom should be kept aside because this will not give constructive results in the exam. For example if you are strong in quantitative aptitude and unluckily you are not able to solve any of the questions at any point of time due any reason. This means you are out of the competition. Hence it is necessary to have an overall preparation.

9. Not preparing a study time table

Practicing the topics without any scheduling will only scare you at the final stage of the preparation process. An efficient study timetable should be equipped to qualify the competitive job exams like SSC.

10. To ignoring revision

At the final phase of the SSC EXAM preparations, every aspirant must devote a sensible amount of time for the revisions. Many students were unsuccessful to revise and faced failure. Never be one amid them. It is advice to give at least 20 hours for revisions during the last two days to give a thorough outlook of the topics and keep them in mind for the best performance.
