       SSC CGL 2014 GK: I am posting 111RJ2 Analysis. All codes have same questions but sequence is different.  Answer Key 

Observation: 2 questions are from current GK
while in morning nil.  Science with 23 questions ( morning 26) dominates the paper. Economy section with 6 questions including 5 from microeconomics ( 12th Class NCERT Microeconomics ) can be highly scoring.  GK like sports, Headquarters / UN have 6 questions.  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 weight- age to science tech.   Follow NCERTs, will help you in all exams. We will all notes related to GK based on NCERT or related to SSC on this website.

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.
