SSC CGL 2016 Tier 1 General Awareness Strategy



SSC General Awareness section is unpredictable. Instead of mind GA is the game of 0 or 1, means if you know the answer you will mark it otherwise you have to leave it. Moreover, weight-age of GA is of 25% i.e. of 50 Marks out of 200 but the syllabus isn’t confined as in other subjects.

  • No need to put extra effort on this section, there are examples where aspirants studied lots of books for this section and devoted too much time to prepare for GS but in the end their marks in this section wasn’t up to their expectations.
  • For GA you need to prepare the topics having limited matter. Some of the topics –
    • Polity
    • Modern India History
    • India Geography
    • Books & Authors
    • Computers
    • Prizes
    • Important Indian Awards
    • Important Days
  • Try to mug up as much as possible but not at the cost of other subjects. Remember GK is the last preferred subject in my opinion due to less effort to result ratio.
  • Maximum time you need to devote on this section in Exam – 10 Minutes
