In the English section, many of the questions from topics like synonyms, antonyms, one-word substitution, idioms, and phrases etc. are asked from previous year’s papers. Similarly, for general awareness also, it is better to have a glance at previous year questions asked in the examinations.

For math and reasoning sections, the pattern of questions is similar to those asked in the previous years. The difficulty level of some of the questions might vary. As the whole examination is conducted in shifts, there can be a situation when most of the questions asked in a particular set are tricky or difficult as compared to the sets in the other shifts. So, it is better to get the luck/chance out of the equation by preparing for the worst and working hard.

The difficulty level of some of the questions from topics like missing number series, puzzles etc. can be very high. You have to solve 100 questions in 60 minutes. Spending too much time on such questions can prove more costly especially if you were unable to go through the whole paper as there might be some questions which you would have solved correctly in a few seconds. There have been many cases in the past where the questions were not framed correctly by the makers or the right option was missing. Spending your time on such questions will only make you frustrated and anxious. So, even if you feel like you are closer to the solution, it is better to mark it for review so that you could reattempt those questions after going through all 100 questions.

So, now that you have a proper understanding of the weightage of different topics asked in SSC, prepare accordingly to crack this exam!
