2. Verbal ability

Candidates are also advised to solve previous exam papers to identify the areas of weakness and work on them.

3. Reasoning ability

This again is one of the most important sections of all SSC exams. This section checks your general intelligence and knowledge. As the questions in this section check your reasoning ability, the questions may tend to be confusing so candidates should read each question carefully before answering.

As most questions in this section consist of puzzles, candidates should practice solving puzzles while preparing for this section. Make sure you read the puzzle carefully and practice solving it in less time.

4. General awareness

General awareness section is considered to be the one where a candidate can score as there are no calculations or complicated solutions involved. While preparing this section you should focus on reading and keeping yourself updated on the current and daily affairs.

As more and more people are opting to appear for the SSC exams, the competition is at its highest and it has become very important to work hard and focus on your preparation for these exams, if you want to clear them and have a chance of acquiring a job.
