General Awareness      

Morning Batch

Paper Codes 

Morning session: 8 papers (19th)

Evening session: 4 Papers (19th)


                              I am posting 011LG2 Analysis. All codes
have same questions but sequence is different.  

Observation: Not even a single question came from current GK.   Science with 26 questions dominates the paper. Economy section with 6 questions including 5 from microeconomics ( 12th Class NCERT Microeconomics ) can be highly scoring.    Science and Engineering students may have edge. Arts students  who have special interest in science tech and microeconomics  will emerge as victorious.

Lessons: Like UPSC, SSC is also giving more weightage to science tech.   Follow NCERTs, will help you in all exams. You will all notes related to GK based on NCERT or related to SSC .

How much score from GK section:  It is always tough to score in GK . If you have command in GK it will help you a lot. I believe that you should score above 25 in GK .    Below 15 means you could not take GK sincerely.   Science and microeconomics are the game changer.
