How to Crack Quant Section | SSC CGL Tier-II 2017


First of all we will divide the quantitative section preparation into three levels:

  • Upper level
  • Medium level
  • Lower level

The benefit of dividing the quantitative into three level is that you can start your preparation from any level.

Upper Level:

  • In the upper level, we divide the math in two major portions  i.e. arithmetic and advanced level.
  • These two portions cover equal numbers of questions in the SSC CGL question paper.
  • But the most important point is that they differ in the numbers of chapters they include and this is the point we need to understand.
  • This upper level is for those students who are good at mathematics and don’t take it as a burden. So, this type of students can start their preparation on the basis of arithmetic and advanced.

Medium Level:

In the medium level, we will focus on the implementation of our divide and rule policy in arithmetic as well as in advanced mathematics. As quantitative section is vast and can’t be cover easily so we divide it on the basis of base or roots of topics. Here we will divide the chapter on the basis of correlation so students can cover them easily.

In arithmetic the base of the chapter is  either L.C.M & H.C.F, Ratio, percentage, and Speed. So we divide the chapter on this basis

L.C.M & H.C.F based chapter:

  • L.C.M & H.C.F itself
  • Time and Work
  • Piper and cistern
  • Number system

Ratio based chapter:

  • Ratio and proportion
  • Mixture and Alligation
  • Partnership

Percentage based chapter

  • Percentage
  • Simple interest
  • Compound interest
  • Profit and Loss

Chapter  based on Speed

  • Time, Distance and Train
  • Boat and Stream

But the advanced math is divided on the basis of application and used:

  • As geometry is used in mensuration so we will keep them in one block
  • Algebra and Surds & Indices are co-related so these topics should be studied in combined manner
  • Now the remaining chapter is trigonometry.

In the medium level, students should practice the quantitative section as per the roots in which we have divided the whole mathematics.

In this way you will cover the whole quantitative section before the exam and can do score good marks in  the exam.

Lower Level:

In lower level students should focus on improving their speed of attempting and solving the paper.

Practice with Stopwatch on your side:

  • For any aspiring SSC candidates, it is a must to keep a stopwatch by their side while preparing.
  •  Apart from the tenacity of the questions, what matters is the time allotted for solving those questions. One needs to practice well enough so that in the paper, he/she can answer most number of questions while keeping the accuracy factor in mind.
  • This also helps you improve your time and boosts your confidence just before the examination.

Go through Practice Sets and Mock Question Papers:

  • Mock question papers and practice sets can help the candidates to prepare for the examination effectively.
  • By solving these sets you can get an idea about how many questions you are solving in the given time and try to improve that by applying and innovating newer techniques through constant practice.
  • Students should solve at least two previous year papers in offline mode in a week, to increase their speed.
  • Student should solve at least two mock papers in online mode.

How to Crack English Section | SSC CGL Tier-II 2017


We divide SSC CGL Tier-2 English mainly into 3 parts. 
Section-1: Vocabulary Section
Section-2: Grammatical Section
Section-3: Comprehensive Section
Section-1: Vocabulary Section
This section is very interesting because you can easily score maximum marks in Vocab section. All you need to do is just Read English Newspaper, magazine or any article written in standard Engish. Once you understand the literal and figurative meaning of the English words, it would be easier to answer correctly all the questions based on Synonyms, Antonyms, One-word substitutions, and idioms/phrases. The only trick is to revise it daily without fail.The revision should be very intense and exhaustive. we have provided The Hindu Newspaper Editorial vocabulary, read all these words daily just 30 min. and you will cover more than 100 words, you will find all these words in the exam. For one word substitutions and idioms, we have provided all important and previous years questions, you can answer correctly after solving these quizzes on GovernmentAdda.

Problem Faced by Candidates:

Problem 1: One of the biggest problems with vocabulary learning is that what’s ‘learned’ today is often forgotten tomorrow. Retaining the learned words becomes a major issue with the candidates.

Problem 2: Learning vocabulary takes time and it can be a mistake to force the process. If you try to learn too many words too quickly, you can end up only confusing yourself.

Problem 3: Another problem faced by candidates is to decide which words are worth learning.

To overcome this problem of finding new words daily which are important for the upcoming competitive exams, you can follow the Word-list provided by us on Daily Basis. Follow the Daily Word list and have the battle is won.

Section-2: Grammatical Section 
Grammatical part solely depends on rules. Once you remember and understand all the important rules, this part can we cracked very easily. Again, revision is the key here also. Most of the grammatical part is made of Parts of speech. You need to once go through all the parts of speech. This grammatical part plays an indispensable role in every type of questions in English section. Learn all the tenses and its usage. Conditional sentences- in every exam questions are asked from this topic in the form of fillers, error detection or sentence improvements. we have provided study notes on all grammatical parts and tenses, study these notes and attempt all the error detection and fill in the blanks questions correctly. If you are studying Noun, then learn all the rules regarding Nouns, and you can correct all the questions correctly.

Fill in the blanks

In this Exam, it is expected that there will be questions with only single fill in the blank.

Tips to solve this type of Question in exam.

(i) Read the statement carefully and choose the word from the options which is suitable for the answer.

(ii) Use the method of elimination by simultaneously checking which of the options best satisfies both the entries.

(iii) Also, you must ensure that the word you have inserted in the blank enables to read the sentence smoothly and correctly.

Spotting Error

You have to find the grammatical error in the sentence. This type of questions requires good grammatical sense.

Tips to solve Spotting Error in exam

(i) In order to solve questions on spotting errors the first step you should take is to read the complete sentence carefully. In most of the cases, you will be able to detect the error in the first go itself.

(ii) While reading the entire sentence, you must carefully check the subject-verb agreement.

(iii) If you can still not detect the error or you are still unsure of the correct answer, then you must read each individual part of the sentence and closely examine which part consists of an error.

Sentence Correction

In this topic, you have to find the correct alternatives which may improve the sentence. Sometimes there is no correction required then your answer will be no improvement.

Tips to solve Sentence Correction in Exam

(i) Read the original sentence carefully and try to spot grammatical errors by identifying whether something “sounds” wrong.

(ii) Always look at every choice.

(iii) Even when the original sentence seems fine, pay attention to the grammar that it tests and look through the choices systematically to see if any option provides a better alternative.

(iv) As you locate each error, eliminate all of the choices that contain that error

(v) Do not read each answer choice back into the sentence individually; that wastes time and invites inaccuracy.

(vi) Instead, identify the differences among the choices and eliminate those that offer less effective or grammatically incorrect alternatives.

Section-3: Comprehensive Section 
For these type of questions, you need to solve 5 comprehensions and cloze tests daily. Such questions are asked to check your understanding of Engish language especially your reading habits. If you are used to reading books, novel etc in English language, then it will come naturally to you. You can easily understand the context and you can answer all the questions based on it. the important trick is to read the questions first, so that you can understand the context of the paragraph beforehand, while you read the passage very first time, you will find the answer to all the questions which you have already read. In this way, you can save precious time by not reading passage all over again for each question. when you study in these remaining days, follow this trick, it will help you tremendously.

Reading Comprehension

Reading Comprehension is the ability to read text, process it and understand its meaning. In addition, RCs are aimed at testing a candidates Knowledge of two elements i.e. Vocabulary and Text Comprehension.

How one should attempt RC questions in the Exam. Generally, there are 2 ways in which a Reading Comprehension can be attempted which are given below:

PQ Approach (passage first, then the questions)

  • Read the entire passage thoroughly first and then read the questions
  • Skim & Scan through the passage and keep going back and forth with questions and passage
  • Read the first 2 paragraphs, scan all the questions and see what you can answer, then read Para 3 & 4, scan the questions and see what you can answer, then read Para 5& 6!!

QP Approach (questions first, then the passage)

  • Read all the questions with their answer options first and then the passage
  • Read question 1 with all the options, then go through the entire passage to answer it. Then read question 2, go through the entire passage. Then question 3!
  • Just read all the question stems, without reading the answer options. Then read the passage and try answering the questions by reading them with the options.

After practising all above strategy and approach, here is a list of tips you must follow while doing an RC.

  • Eliminate and not select: In most cases, elimination of choices work better than the selection of choices. Here is an approach to eliminate which is ‘BANE’. Eliminate choices that are too broad, too narrow, that are alien (Strange) and too extreme.
  • Never apply your own knowledge to the given passage. Confine your understanding to the given passage only.

Cloze Test

As you all know that Cloze Test is the most important part of the SSC Exams. It is an exercise where the candidates are provided with a passage which has certain words missing from it. It is very important for the candidates to understand the flow and context of the passage.

How to Crack the Nut?

  1. First of all, go through the complete passage and get a rough idea about the content and the message it conveys. Also, note down the unknown words.
  2. In a passage mostly all the sentences are logically related to each other. This logic’s will give you an idea about the appropriate word for the blank space.
  3. Sometimes you can easily spot the correct answer. If not, then eliminate the improbable options one by one and get the right answer.
  4. Find a logical relation between all the provided options.
  5. Practice at least 4-5 Cloze tests to check your performance.

Well, as you can see in the above table, the Weightage topics are ‘Spot the error’, ‘Improvement of sentences’, ‘Active/Passive voice of verbs’, ‘Conversion into direct/indirect narration’, ‘Jumbled Paragraph’, ‘cloze passage’, Idioms & Phrases, ‘One word substitution’. You need to give special attention to these topics. Practice and keep revising all the rules and tricks so that you can be prepared for the CGL Tier-2 exam completely. Now, let’s discuss the tricks and approach for above-mentioned topics in detail.
The Important tips for idioms are:
If you see an idiom in context i.e., in a magazine, newspaper or a book, try to understand the context and this will help you with the idiom.Keep an ‘Idioms’ diary.  Every time you hear an idiom or read one, write it down but then make sure that you can look it up at home in a dictionary (English dictionary for learners) and to write it in a sentence otherwise you will forget the meaning. Try to see the idiom in your mind. Can you see the image? Many idioms are made of images.  Try to imagine them and this will help you remember them by seeing the pictures in your mind. Use the idioms you have learned in everyday life.

The Important tips for Active/Passive are:

 
Recognizing the Active Structure- Not all sentences can be changed to the passive voice. Only an active voice sentence with a direct object can be made passive. Make the Object the Subject- Restructuring the active to the passive includes two major changes in a sentence’s structure. The first is taking the direct object of the active verb/sentence and making it the subject of the passive sentence. Once you can correctly identify the direct object in an active sentence, you should be able to easily determine the subject of the passive sentence.When changing an active sentence to a passive sentence, the tense of the verb changes. Every passive sentence contains a “be” verb. To change an active verb to a passive verb, use the correct form of “be” and the past participle of the original active verb.
The Important tips for Sentence Improvement are:
 
For such types of questions, you need to have a good understanding of tenses, prepositions, phrasal verbs and idiomatic expressions. and most importantly you need to have good reading habits, if you read a lot you can easily understand the context and can correct any wrong usage in a sentence. So, clear all the concepts regarding these points. we will update more tricks and approach for other remaining topics. till then keep studying with GovernmentAdda.

Time Management Tips While Studying


Practice with Stopwatch on your side: For any aspiring SSC candidate, it is a must to keep a stopwatch by their side while preparing. Apart from the tenacity of the questions, what matters is the time allotted for solving those questions. One needs to practice well enough so that in the paper, he/she can answer most number of questions while keeping the accuracy factor in mind. This also helps you improve your time and boosts your confidence just before the examination.

Go through Practice Sets and Mock Question Papers: Mock question papers and practice sets can help the candidates to prepare for the examination effectively. By solving these sets you can get an idea about how many questions you are solving in the given time and try to improve that by applying and innovating newer techniques through constant practice.

We hope we have provided you all with enough points to get through this tough task in a smooth manner.

Just remember

“Perfect planning and proper execution is the key to success in any competitive exam”.
