Every year Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts the recruitment of eligible candidates for various departments and ministries under the Government of India. Some of the government exams conducted by SSC on a yearly basis include SSC JE (Junior Engineer), SSC CPO (Central Police Organization), SSC CGL (Combined Graduate Level), SSC GD (General Duty), SSC CHSL (Combined Higher Secondary Level), etc.
As a matter of fact, students who are interested in securing their future usually lookout for a prestigious government job and appear for government exams accordingly. Applicants usually choose a government job over a private job due to various reasons like lucrative pay scale, respectable job opportunity, job security, relatively organised and relaxed work schedule etc. Hence, whatever may be the reason, most aspirants seek a bright, congenial and safe future in the government sector.
In this article, we shall look into the best tips to prepare for SSC Exams. Let’s begin:
- Know SSC syllabus and exam pattern: For any candidate who wants to clear an SSC exam, he/she must know the exam syllabus and the pattern of the exam. Apart from this, a candidate must be aware of the exam duration and the allotment of questions and marks from each section. For example, an applicant appearing for the SSC CGL exam must know that the exam is divided into 4 tiers – Tier-1, Tier-2, Tier-3 and Tier-4. A candidate needs to clear each Tier to move to the next level of the examination.
- Devise a study schedule: Every aspirant who wants to clear an SSC exam must have a proper and organised timetable which is properly aligned with the exam syllabus and pattern of the respective examination. Candidates need to pay special attention to those areas in which they are weak and try to improve them and also try to polish their strengths too.
- Refer best books or study materials: In order to clear an SSC exam, it is imperative for a candidate to refer good books and resources according to the latest exam syllabus. This would also help him/her to get acquainted with the weightage of questions from each section or topic and decide which are the difficult sections of the exam and need more attention.
- Take Mock Tests and practice more: Practice is the key to succeed in any competitive exam. Candidates who prepare well and practice diligently have an edge over their competitors and are likely to excel in the exam. Besides, a candidate should try to solve prior years’ question papers to understand the weightage of questions and exam pattern. Candidates should also try to take a few mock tests occasionally to get a feel of the pattern of questions from each section and have an idea of what to expect during the actual exam.
