Abhishek Kalra of Vidyaguru coaching institute suggests on what chapters to focus on the following sections:
Maths: In this section, questions will be around algebra, geometry and trigonometry, especially in the latter two, direct questions are asked and therefore there are more chances to score well. “Most students get stuck in arithmetic but they should memorise formulas in the last day,” said Kalra.
Target: An average candidate can score between 30-35 marks in this section.
General Intelligence: This is the most scoring section where questions on Venn diagram, analogy, logical reasoning will be asked. Pay attention to the questions on alphabet and coding.
Target: A candidate should score 40-45 marks in this section to be able to crack SSC CGL 2017.
English language: There will be questions asked on grammar, vocabulary etc. Focus on idioms and phrases and go through previous year’s test papers as there is a higher probability of repeated sets of questions.
Target: Scoring should be near 35-40 marks in this section.
General Knowledge: This section asks questions on National emergancy, constitution related like directive principals etc. A candidate needs to be aware of current affairs.
Target: Score over 20-25 marks
