Reasons You Fail In SSC CGL And How To Avoid Them
- Less Determination:
The candidates who are preparing for the SSC CGL exam should be determined about their success. Little negligence will be harmful to the candidates. From day 1 the candidate should start preparing without fail and without any gap in preparation.
- Relying on too many sources:
Trying every single book, app, and website for preparation, specifically when it comes to general knowledge. It has been observed that students go through 10 books of General Knowledge and 10-15 apps on History, Geography, Politics, English Vocabulary, etc. Only one source and tips and tricks of that will be helpful to score more in SSC CGL. Too many sources will confuse you and end up with the mess of failure in the final examination.
- Exam Fear:
Many candidates have fear of examination which leads to a fumble for the candidates during the examination. Students can kill their exam fear by attempting regular online mock tests which will help them get used to examination experience and will make them calmer and confident during the exam.
- Not Solving Previous Years Papers:
This is one of the main reasons behind the failure of students in any competitive exam. By solving previous years’ SSC CGL papers students will get an idea of how the paper is set by the SSC and will give them important inputs such as the type/pattern of questions to expect and the trend in the weightage of different topics in each section.
- Lack of Practice:
Only learning concepts, formulas, and short tricks and not practicing questions won’t work if you are planning on cracking a competitive exam. Candidates need to practice each and every section like quantitative aptitude and logical reasoning for the positive result.
- Guesswork won’t work
There is a negative marking for every incorrect attempt in the SSC CGL exam. Most of the candidates use wild guessing to answer the questions that they are unfamiliar with to clear the qualifying cut-off. Calculated guesswork at times can work in favor of the students but sometimes it can be dangerous and can reduce your score. This should be also avoided by the candidates.
- Mocks Test is the Saviour:
Mocks are the one who helps the candidates in every prospect. Canddiates will be fully ready for the actual exam. Mocks give the candidates an exam environment and this helps in improving the accuracy, speed, confidence, and knowledge of exam patterns. Mocks will increase your practice for the questions asked.
