The Combined Graduate Level Tier II examination is on the heads of the aspiring SSC candidates who have successfully gone through their Tier I examinations and are now eyeing their berth in the personal interview round to get ultimately selected for the various posts under SSC. The Tier II examinations of CGL 2014 are going to take place in 24th and 25th of January 2015 nationwide. There would be a total of three papers, of which the candidates need to select any two to give in the examination. The English Language paper remains compulsory for all the candidates who are going through to the Tier II examinations. Of the other two papers, the candidates need to choose from Quantitative Ability paper and Mathematics/Statistics/Economics paper. The choice of the papers depends on the posts the candidates have applied for and need to prepare accordingly.
The papers contain 200 marks and a total of hundred questions are asked in each paper. The candidates are given two hours’ time to solve all the questions in a paper and thus they need to be quick and selective while solving the questions. It is very important to keep an eye on the time while solving the Quantitative abilities paper as it could turn out to be very tricky at times and has to be handled sensibly on part of the candidates. There are negative markings for every wrong evaluation of questions in part of the candidates and thus they need to be doubly sure before going on for any question which they are not sure of.
The Quantitative Ability paper carries questions from mostly the 10th grade level, and could be handled easily if the candidates could have a clear control over their mathematics basics. There are questions on number systems, computation of whole numbers, decimals and fractions, Ratio and proportions that are asked in the paper. There are questions related to Average, Interest, profit and loss, discount and fundamental arithmetical operations that are asked to the candidates. Along with these there are questions related to LCM and HCF, geometry, trigonometry, time and distance, table, graphs, charts and many more which falls under the basic mathematical operation.
