     Now, after knowing the exam syllabus and patter you need to start as follows :

ü Take Mock papers : It 'll help you get to know where you stand section-wise at present.
ü Out of each section list out the chapters that are in trend or most probably get featured in SSC CGL exam.  Do it separately for Pre and Mains.  You will be able to keep your focus on topics which matter and can save a lot of time from going waste.
ü Get to know what types of questions from a particular chapter are generally asked in Pre or Mains.
ü Practice these questions applying shortcuts. Your aim must be to solve questions in least possible time. This is the best Trick to be used in Maths section.

Rather investing a lot of time on the topics that have less weightage, concentrate on the topics that are easy and carry more weightage. Some important topics are:
·        Quantitative Ability – Algebra, Geometry, Coordinate Geometry, Trigonometry and Mensuration etc.
·        Reasoning Ability – Syllogism, Analogy, Odd man out, Number Series, Venn diagram, Non-verbal reasoning etc.
·        English Language – Sentence Improvement, reading comprehension, Spotting Errors, Synonym/Antonym, one-word substitution etc.
·        General Awareness – History, Geography, Polity, Economics, General Science etc.


Reasoning


  1. The reasoning questions that come in SSC CGL Pre exam are of basic level but questions from some of the topics like Classification of numbers, Number analogy, Missing element get you confused and at times prove to be time consuming. Act wise and practise a lot of different questions to gain exposure of different patterns. 
  2. The section is crucial and provides you with an opportunity to score high. Can score more marks putting less brains.
  3. Take at least 2 topic tests and one sectional test each week.


English


  1. To me, gaining command over a language is really a time taking task but if you are a good reader it becomes a cake walk for you. Do read. Read everyday. Have a great sense of observation. Observe how sentences are framed. Observe the difference between 'deal with' and 'deal in' for instance. Improve your vocabulary. Do give equal importance to phrasal verbs. Love the language. Try learning meaning of every single word that comes to you. We come across many a word in life but we tend not to learn them. For instance brand names such as Pulsar, Paragon, Nexus, etc do carry some meaning but we hardly try to know what they mean. 
  2. Practice previous years' passages, questions and keep your level of observation high. 
  3. Take at least 2 topic tests and one sectional test each week.


General Awareness

  1. As far as GA is concerned, to get to know the trending chapters is really of high importance as you can't just start preparing for it without actually knowing where to focus. 
  2. Once you are done with analysis part, gather the required study material. NCERT Books of History, Geography and Science of 6th, 7th and 8th standards are good enough to cover these three major topics. CSR year book would also be a good option to learn Awards, Who's who, Science terminology, etc in quick time. 
  3. Do not leave previous years questions as they are repeated. Do make your own notes. 
  4. Be specific while learning Current Affairs. Choose only what matters. 
  5. Take daily GK quizzes and spend time to go through the explanation part. Do not overdo it.

Final words

  1. Take at least 20 mock tests before the actual exams - Pre and Mains. 
  2. Keep rectifying your past mistakes every time you take a test.
  3. Do remember the fact that cracking an exam is more about strategy than sheer hard-work. All the best!
