2. Revision is the Most Important
Many students don’t find much time to read or revise the topics they read for each subject. This is where you guys make mistake, yes you have to revise the thing you have done. Make your habit to revise the topics you read, write down the important things, maths formula (which makes you time consuming). Revision will help you to remember topics easily, and will solve the problem of forgetting and not-remembering. We have got many mails regarding this problem where students don’t remember the things they have just read. Follow this, you will definately feel relaxed.
3. Test Yourself Regularly – Mock Test(s)
This thing is also important as revision, if you don’t test yourself regularly then how come you know that what you know, how much you know about the syllabus. So, keep preparing for mock test, if you don’t find any mock test then, we will definitely provide you mock test for SSC CGL.
4. Guesstimate Not Work Always
SSC CGL and all other Competitive exams like IBPS becomes more competitive, which we mentioned above. So, in such case, guess work won’t work anymore as most of the candidates are now so much aggressive for government jobs and they really work hard, if you want government jobs then you also have to study hard and give your best. Also, Negative marking will eliminate most of the guesstimate answers.
5. Time Management for SSC CGL Exam
Make a timetable of how much time you should give to which section. Learn How to do Time Management for SSC exams.
15 min. for general knowledge

Make a time map of which section you are going to solve 1st then 2nd 3rd 4th according to their time table. Emphasize more on a section you are more comfortable with and solve it first.
Note: As we Indian have to deal with lots of festivals then facebook and twitter and then movies eat lots of time of much focused candidates who don’t wish to waste their time in such stuff (:-P).
