SSC CGL PREPARATION TIPS

Candidate should prepare for SSC CGL exam in the following manner:

  1. Be Thorough With The Syllabus: Go through the SSC CGL syllabus and see what all topics are included under each section. Categorize your strength and weakness, to find out which topics are easy and which are difficult.

  1. Create A Timetable: The next step is to create a proper and realistic timetable. Separate time slots should be allotted for each of the sections. More time should be spent on the section that you find difficult and less time on your strong sections.

  1. Develop Reading Habits & Clear Your Concepts: You need to understand what each of the concepts means. Otherwise, it won’t be possible for you to even identify the problems. Especially for the Language section (Hindi/English) and General Knowledge & General Awareness sections, you need an extensive reading. Try to understand the application and usage of grammatical rules and improve your vocabulary. The General Knowledge & General Awareness section on the other hand needs you to have information about a wide range of topics at your fingertips. All these things can be achieved with regular reading of Newspaper and Articles.

SALARY

There are 5 pay levels Level 8, Level 7, Level 6, Level 5, and Level 4 based on different posts. The total in-hand SSC CGL salary 2022 for each post ranges from Rs. 25,500 to Rs. 1,51,100 depending on the different pay levels.
