It will give you an overall idea of chapter wise distribution of questions as well as the difficulty level of questions asked in different subjects. Stay tuned for the detail analysis of daily exam paper at our website. 

Detail Analysis

General Intelligence(Reasoning) had 4-5 tricky questions. So more than 20 question with 100% accuracy will be  consider as a  good attempt. All the basic chapter was covered like Odd one out, Blood relations, Analogy, series, matrix, syllogism, direction test etc. There were no surprises like English was there in this section. Even today few students has the opinion that this section was easy and not much time consuming(coding decoding and number series is consistently coming harder).

Overall difficulty level of this paper: Easy to moderate

English Language was of difficulty level just like the previous day. There were a few changes like reading comprehension was replaced by cloze test, there were questions from Narration and active passive voice as well. SSC has included parajumble which was not there in  last year examination. Parajumble were quiet tough. Till last year these portion were part of Tier-2 English question paper. Rest of the chapters were same like 3 questions each from sentence improvement, error detection, Idioms and phrases,Antonyms, synonyms, one word substitution and spelling check etc. Synonyms and antonyms were on tougher side(phrasal verb, antonyms, synonyms were on tougher side than rest of portions). Very few vocabs are coming from previous year papers. 

Overall difficulty level of this paper: Easy to moderate

Quantitative Aptitude(Mathematics) was a bit calculative considering the fact that SSC has reduced the exam duration  from 75 Minutes to 60 Minutes. So you need to be very selective while you attempt this section. It is always a wise decision to skip lengthy question for the last otherwise it can ruin your paper as a whole. There was one DI consists of PIE/tabular graph having 5 questions(Questions were calculative). Apart from DI, 2-3 question each were from Algebra, geometry, time and work, trigonometry, mensuration, S.I&C.I, profit loss etc. DI questions are very calculative.

General Awareness(GK) had questions covering almost all aspects of GK. Major focus areas was History, Polity(4-5 questions each) and Science (7-8 questions). The level varied between easy and moderate. There were a few questions from economics and geography as well. Few history and polity questions were repeated. There were good number of questions from current events. Now we see that questions are getting repeated in this section from previous year papers.
