Detail Analysis

General Intelligence(Reasoning) was easy except 2-3 tricky questions. So  20-22 question with atleast 90% 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. Questions from 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. Again Cloze test was included in place of Reading Comprehension and it was quiet tough. There were questions from Narration but not from active passive voice. 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). 

Overall difficulty level of this paper: Easy to moderate

→ Synonyms: obliterate, Litter, commemorate

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 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.

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.
