1. Keep the entire syllabus with you while you plan your study timetable

The important step in your preparation is to be thoroughly familiar with the entire syllabus of the examination because without that you cannot plan your study. So, before you start planning your study timetable, make sure to have the entire syllabus with you and then set the timetable accordingly.

2. Do not overload yourself

When you are preparing your timetable, make sure to keep it comfortable and achievable. Do not put too much pressure on yourself by deciding to complete a large number of topics in a single day. Make sure your timetable is such that you have enough time to concentrate on each topic.

3. Focus on section wise preparation

The SSC CPO examination has four sections— general intelligence and reasoning, general awareness, quantitative aptitude and English language. Each of these sections carry different weightage of marks and hence it is important to study for all these sections while preparing for the SSC CPO examination. For doing so, you need to make sure that you plan your timetable in a way that you can cover each of these sections and give them equal attention. It is advisable to complete one section at a time so as to avoid confusion and jumbling between sections.

4. Have the right study material

Knowing what books to refer to is highly important while preparing for competitive exams like the SSC CPO exam. Sometimes students who get everything right in the preparation and study well also experience failure in these exams because of referring to the wrong or outdated books. It is often advised to go for government recommended books when preparing for such exams.

Clearing this exam may seem to be hard as the competition level has increased and it has been found that only a few candidates out of the many that appear, are successful in clearing the SSC CPO exam. But as hard as it may seem, you can still achieve it if you are determined and willing to put in the effort.
