SSC CHSL Tier-2: Tips and Strategy

SSC CHSL Tier-II is an offline Pen Paper-based exam carrying a weightage of 100 marks with a 1-hour duration. The choice will be there between English Language and Hindi Language. Candidates can write the paper in either English or Hindi language at their convenience.

Having said of Descriptive Exam, let’s discuss the key points regarding this exam:

1. Avoid Exceeding Word Limit: With essay writing, candidates find themselves in a dilemma regarding how to start an essay to give it an informational and impressive touch. There is a set format that is required to score well in essay writing.

  • While writing an essay avoid introducing excessive and useless information as the word limit is 250 words and it has to be precise enough. An essay comprises an Introduction, Body Content, and Conclusion. Allot 50-50 words to the introduction and conclusion and the rest to the body content. 
  • Use eloquent vocabulary to escape long sentences. Make each sentence pertinent enough to convey vital information. Exceeding word limits would bring no advantage but ensnare you in trouble. With 150 words limit, letter writing must cover the satiable cause behind it and laconic content.

2. Imposing Representation and In-deep knowledge of topics: 

  • Representation plays a vital role in leaving an effective impression on the examiner. Avoid repetition of words, circumlocution and keep the paper sheet dapper, and put your information in neat handwriting.
  • To develop your critical thinking skills and vocabulary, read daily editorials from reputed newspapers. And try to practice in person. Observe Social and Environmental Issues, Science & Technology, Government issues, World Politics and Issues, Financial status-related incidents, news, and current affairs meticulously and note down them in pointer forms to revise and strengthen your content.

3. Practice in Exam like block designed sheets: 

  • Take a plain sheet of paper, draw blocks on it with 4 columns and start practicing like this on a daily basis. As a beginner, you may find this procedure puzzling and may get vexed. But with daily practice, you will be familiar with the pattern and won’t be astounded writing this way in the real exam. Scale down your mistakes every day. Factor in writing and don’t let the examiner tie up in knots.

4. Order Of Attempts:
  • The first preference should be given to essays as it asks for time to let out creative writing skills. Then go for letter writing/precis writing.

5. Correct knowledge of formats:

  • In the essay, introduce your sagacity right from the beginning paragraph. Concise and informational sentences with apt grammatical usage are the key to enthuse impression. An essay may contain 3-4 paragraphs.
  • In the first paragraph, you just need to put your strong argument based on the topic asked for to write about, next comes the body which demands the pivotal essence. The weak argument should be a part of the ending paragraph. In conclusion, provide a summary of the introduction and the body content.
