SSC CGL 2020-2021 Important topics for English Grammar and Composition.

Hey aspirants today we are going to discuss the important topics for SSC CGL 2020-2021 Examination, But before starting let me tell one thing that this is an overall section of English and it’s not possible for SSC to add questions from each section to the examination. So it might be possible that any section may not be available in any shift of examination and in other it’s being appeared. So I request you to cover each and every section so that you will never miss any section in the examination.

            As per my experience I can state that SSC repeats questions very frequently and a few new questions are added every year to the examination. So it will be better for a student to cover the whole syllabus first and then try to solve all the previous sets in small duration of time. It will be better that while completing the whole syllabus of grammar student must remember the vocabulary also because it is also an important section and one can never ignore that too.

Please consider that you can’t complete the whole syllabus in 90 days or 120 days because there are four sections for which you have to prepare for, you will need approx six months to start from scratch.

The First is reasoning section for this just practice previous and that will help you simply buy previous paper from stores near you and just make 100 sets miscellaneous exercise at least five to six times to score good marks in SSC examination.

The Second is General Studies section which is the largest section having 14-16 different papers which almost weightage to 1-2 marks each from each. Sometimes SSC skips also a few sections to maintain the balance and quality of marks. So please complete all section accordingly. Always start from interesting section first or in my opinion follow the give plan.

Science > Biology > Physics > Chemistry > Arts > History > Geography > Civics > Economics > Current Affairs

The third is Mathematics section comes which is easy only if you are doing good practice. You ae requested to solve at least 100 question per day less than that won’t work for you. I suggest you to do 50 in starting and increase them to 100 within 15 days because the more you practice the more you will get advantage from the chapter.

Follow Arithmetic’s first then go for advanced section then Statistics.  

English section which is least easy but here you too will need a little guidance because without that you can’t pass the second stage of examination.

Do and Don’ts for the SSC Examination

#4. Don’t follow other Books as CAT MAT for Improving English for SSC even don’t go for books for banking Examination.

#5. Don’t follow many books or many YouTube channel owning to this you will get multiple strategy and nothing will work for you in last.

#6. Don’t revise sets older than five years because the contents have upgraded much in the 5 years.

#7. Make a good study plan that suits your day and don’t follow others plan because everyone has own strategy and you must build your own.
