SSC CGL Tier 3 Descriptive Paper syllabus - Pinnacle Coaching

The above paragraph has clearly mentioned that the syllabus for ssc cgl tier 3 is not only essay and letter. It is beyond that. In the syllabus, it is written Essay/Precis/Letter/Application, etc. means ssc can ask anything. Here the word etc. has given a new dimension to its syllabus interpretation.

So students must prepare on writing skills. The question can be an essay, English comprehension, notice writing, report writing, letter writing, application writing just like we see in our school for descriptive writing. 

What is the trend till now related to ssc cgl tier 3 descriptive 

SSC has just once given precis writing along with essay in ssc cgl tier 3 2019 year. Otherwise, till now ssc used to ask for one essay and one letter. Both used to be compulsory without any choice. We can say that along with essay students must be ready for precis also like the year 2019. 

The essay words limit is generally 250 words with 10% here and there while precis can be around 300 words and need to write one-third of it. If it comes letter then words limit for letter is 150 words with 10% here and there. Students should do a lot of practice so that they can write both questions in 60 minutes without any cutting.
