SSC GD Constable 2018 Exam Preparation Strategy

After going through the above mentioned exam pattern and syllabus of SSC GD Constable 2018, the next step is to create a study plan and start working on it. For instance, start your practice by solving some previous year question papers and analyse your strong & weak points. Also, one cannot get selected for the post of GD Constable, if the candidate is not physically and medically fit. So, it is advisable for the candidates to not only study hard for the exams but also keep themselves physically and mentally fit through physical exercises to clear the physical and medical tests.

Let’s now look at the ways to ace the Computer based Examination (CBE) of SSC GD Constable 2018 Exam:

  • Regular Practice: Make a habit practicing previous year paper and mock test every day to improve your speed and accuracy. Solve previous year papers as there are many questions which are repeated.
  • Build a Proper Study Plan: Follow a proper strategy and a time table for all the sections of question paper.
  • Practice Important Topics: Students need to go through the syllabus and focus on the important topics first.
  • Focus on your weak areas: First try to focus on you weak areas and spend more time improving them. Devote more time to your weak areas and less time to your strong areas.
  • Time Management: Try to manage your time while solving mock papers. Give more time to sections that you are stronger in. This will ensure that you can effectively use the time duration of the exam. Remember that there are no sectional time limits and no sectional cut offs. So your job is to simply maximize your score however you can.

SSC GD Constable Results

Final result along with force allocation will be declared by the Commission based on the performance of candidates in the Computer Based Examination. Physical Standard Test, Physical Efficiency Test and Detailed Medical Examination will be of qualifying nature.
