SSC CGL Tier 2 : Maths Study Plan

There are total four papers in CGL Tier-2 exam namely; Paper-1 (Quantitative Abilities) and Paper-2 (English Language and Comprehension) are compulsory for all candidates, but Paper-3 (Statistics), Paper-4 (General Studies Finance & Economics) are optional. Today, we will study the smart strategy to crack Quant Section with highest marks. Before we start the strategy, we need to understand the exam paper, question types and the topics which carry more Weightage.

SSC CGL Tier 2 : English Study Plan

How many hours should you Study Every day? 
It completely depends on you. If you are sincere and dedicated to your preparation, then 8 to 11 hours/day is enough. If not, you should spend the whole day. Let’s do one thing. Instead of making time schedule, you just make the list of topics you should prepare per day. Based on it you can utilize your day. You should divide your time accordingly because a working person will have a different schedule than a non-working person. Here is the break up of questions asked in Previous Year papers.

1.Simplification/Number System
Dear students, Approx. 9-10 questions are asked from number system Simplification/Number System. This topic is very important because it is the foundation for all other topics in quant section of CGL Tier-2. Most of the students commit this mistake of not paying attention the basics and they start solving questions without learning the formulas and simplification tricks.
These are one of the most important topics regarding SSC CGL because Geometry and Mensuration collectively consist of 25 questions. The level of difficulty varies from easy to moderate.For Geometry, you need to remember all the important theorems, Pythagoras triplet, all the formulas of the area of a triangle, circle, rectangles, polygons etc. Above all draw figures correctly to get the quick answer. For Mensuration, you need to focus on Prism, Pyramid, Sphere, and Tetrahedron.You have to use Formulas like curved surface area, total surface area, and volume.All the questions will be based on these three formulas only.
3. Algebra/Trigonometry/Height and Distance
Algebra includes basic formulas of cube and squares and trigonometric ratios and identities. you can mug up a few questions because every year they repeat the same questions. Approx 10 questions will be asked from Algebra. So solving these topics will help in scoring good marks in less time. Try to solve a few questions from options if you don’t find any way to solve. If you practice right, This topic can easily fetch you good marks with accuracy.
4. Ratio/Percentage/profit, loss and Discount
Concepts of Percentage and ratio are the base to the chapters like profit & loss and Discount. For Quick solving, you must remember all fractional value up to 30 in terms of percentage.Profit and loss and discount revolve around 4 terms and that is C.P, S.P, M.P and Discount. Understand the concept of CP, SP, MP and discount given on MP and relation between them. Remember friends, these topics will prove to be stepping stone to your success. Approx.20 questions will be asked from these topics.
5.Time speed and distance/Train/Boats and Stream
Inverse relation and direct relation between time speed and distance will help a lot. The concept of relative velocity will help you in solving problems of train and Boat and Stream. All these topics are based on the same concept. Gun and Bullet problem, Train accident problem, Effect of increasing/decreasing speed on time, these problems are often asked in exams.
6.Time and Work/pipes and Cistern
Solve time and work question with the help of LCM method which can reduce lots of time while solving questions. The concept of alternate work, efficiency and work and wages are important points to cover.

Now, Dear friends only month is left for the CGL Tier-2 Exam 2017, the best you could do is to start taking online exams twice in a day with the proper analysis. Dedicate first two weeks for concept building. Analysing mock tests are equally as important as taking mock tests. And for the rest of the time start solving previous years’ questions. Over the years, there hasn’t been any significant change in the type of questions asked by SSC. So, to assume the questions to be similar to the previous ones would not be a naïve call. You will be able to solve the questions with a much better pace and this will surely help you boost your morale. A bit of increased focus and a pinch of smart work will serve the purpose for sure.
