SSC CGL 2017, earlier scheduled for August 1, is postponed to August 5.  With only a few days left for the exam, it is time to gear up the preparation and formulate a proper plan to be ready for the exam. Here are five points that will help you prepare for SSC CGL 2017 tier 1 exam in the last 15 days:

1. Revision

The best way to revise is by using the time you have to go through all topics and not get stuck on a few topics. Students should be aware of their strengths and weaknesses. Sharpen your strong areas to fetch more marks but do not ignore the subjects that you find more difficult. Revise GS as much as possible because it is very wide in its scope. Read | SSC CGL 2017: Five changes in exam pattern and selection procedure, click here

2. Notes

If you have notes written down in different notebooks and scattered, gather all this and read through them as you sort them in a more compact location and keep the important topics highlighted. Preparing short notes while revising will help you during the last few days before the exam.

3. Mock tests

As the SSC-CGL examination is online, practice online mock tests as these will let you experience an environment similar to the real paper. Analyse the mock tests that you try and check your scores in the different subjects/topics. Prepare a strategy to score well according to your analysis. This will definitely help you in increasing your accuracy and speed. Read | SSC CGL 2017: Practice this 60-minute mock test to ace the exams, click here

4. Ask for help

Do not be afraid to ask help from your teachers or experienced persons for help in case you find some topic difficult. If you are facing difficulties in solving particular questions, asking questions regarding these topics will not only solve the questions you are attempting but may also help you understand certain topics that you could not before.

5. Take breaks

It is important to spend time on preparation for the exam in these last days. However, it is just as important to take care of your physical and mental health. Take breaks between preparation, eat healthy and catch enough sleep. A healthy mind and body are as important in contributing to your performance during the exam as your preparation.
