Strategy to tackle New CGL pattern

We all know CGL has changed the pattern of CGL. But since the syllabus is as it is, you shouldn't bother much about the change...




Just keep few things in mind before entering the examination hall-

  1. Give some quality mock tests (paramount is good) to get accustomed with the online world. If you have given bank/insurance exams earlier then you don't need to bother.
  2. The new pattern has reduced the number of questions drastically (exactly half), but the time given to attempt the paper has not been halved. Result? This time you won't face issues in completing the paper on time (provided you have good practice).
  3. But there is a down side to this. The weightage of each question has increased and as a result the negative marking has increased to 0.5 marks. This suggests that accuracy would be a big game changer this time. A silly mistake will make you lose 2.5 marks and these are enough to knock you off the list.
  4. Only 25 questions for GS - some thing to cheer about for all the people with GS-phobia. Instead of covering each section partially, try to read selective sections completely. Finish History, Economics and Polity from Lucent. You can skip Science and Geography because they are vast and you can never be sure what questions would be asked from these two sections.
  5. Make your own order of attempting the question paper based on your strengths and weaknesses. I had written an article about it few months back. Check it here-

  6. I hope you have gone through the SSC Hack book, now is the time to give as many mock tests as possible. Don't give much time to unproductive sections like GS, clock, calendar, number system, etc.
Don't think the process ha changed. It is just a tweak. If you have done the hard work, there is no stopping you...

  1. Sir I have a question! In analogy/classification section(offline mode) we had the chance to "cheat" a bit earlier as the meaning of the (unknown) English words used to be given in Hindi but in online mode can we see the meaning in Hindi by any chance?

    1. calculation tricks are not that much helpful...rather than going for them, you should focus on individual chapters of quant as you have ample amount of time.
