To crack SSC CGL you have to follow a strategy and stick to it, you just have to fill your mind with a feeling that you will make your name to the list of qualifying candidate of SSC CGL.
Here are some tips and strategy for cracking SSC CGL:
First, complete the syllabus of SSC and while doing it marks the question which seems difficult to you or you can write it in a notebook.
Follow only one book for each subject and never get confused about the book because every book has the same thing and same concept.
Once you cover all the topics of your syllabus then practise more and more.
Never lose hope and don’t feel dejected.
Keep yourself motivated and never feel that you can’t clear the exam
Maintain the consistency in studying.
Focus on your aim and try to achieve it.
Conclusion according to me.
Let me ask a question whether toppers are extra talented or they read different books? Your answer surely will be no, if your answer is Yes then change it and fill your mind with a thought that you are the topper and you are extra talented and no one is superior to you in anything. Then what toppers do and get selected, they do only and only practice and they never doubt their selection and their ability.
Once you complete your syllabus then pick any practice set and take a test on the daily basis.
In this way, your speed will improve and you can judge yourself where you stand.
You can easily know the topics in which you have to do an extra effort.
While taking paper mark the question which is difficult and notes down in the book and read that notebook daily.
Before exam try to make at least 30 practice set and cram every question and every line of practice set.
Don’t waste your valuable time in preparing GS portion as it.
