English: To score good marks in English, first you have to concentrate on Vocabulary and Grammar and then move on to comprehension. The most advantage in English section is the questions are asked from previous year papers, so practicing those questions thoroughly you can complete this section within 10 minutes. Coming to the comprehension section, try to practice at least 10 passages daily. A simple trick to score well in the comprehension section is first make habit of reading questions first and then read the passage. So by reading the passage later you will come across answers for each question. These questions are asked to check your ability to understand and analyze the information provided in the passage. To practice vocabulary, you must read different English newpapers, articles and books so that you can come across new words and try to find the meaning for those words in the English dictionary. Form different sentences using these English words on your own to remember well. Also give time for Grammar part which contains fill in the blanks, Error spotting etc.
General Knowledge: Candidates those who prepare this section well will have high possibility of clearing the SSC CGL Exam. Aspirants should focus on static questions apart from Current affairs. For preparing current affairs you have to read news paper daily.  On the whole, preparing for the General Knowledge, you should visually organize the information to remember well rather than mugging up all the questions.
Quantitative aptitude: The questions asked in this section will be mostly of 10th class level. So candidates feel overconfident while preparing for Q.A. This is one of the biggest mistakes the candidates will do. Candidates should first focus on Basics and then later move to the short cuts which helps to save more time in the exam. At least give 2 hrs time daily for Q.A and put an aim to complete the section within 25 minutes in the exam.
