SSC examinations are very popular ones among many competitive examinations that are conducted every year by various examination conducting bodies. Lakhs of candidates appear for these examinations and only a handful few crack these examinations to get selected for the prestigious jobs that are on offer. In this article, we shall try to decode the ideal strategy adopted by the students and various issues related to that, such as the background of the students and their academic profile among others.
Here we shall discuss about the educational backgrounds of the students and the relation of this with the rate of success in the competitive examinations.
SSC Examinations: What candidate profile has to do with it?
Many kinds of candidates appear for the SSC examinations such as SSC CGL, CHSL, Junior Engineer Examination, etc. and most of these examinations demand for only graduate or higher secondary degree from the candidates with the exceptions being specialized posts of engineers, statistical investigators and other selections posts. Let us see what determines the rate of success in the generalized SSC Examinations such as CGL, CHSL, etc.
- Academic Profile: This has to do a lot with the success in SSC examinations. Most of the SSC examinations are based on mathematics, reasoning and English. That is why, engineering students often get an edge over others in these examinations. However, most of the examinations have components such as general awareness as well and arts stream students often have an edge in this section because of extensive reading habits
- Preparation strategy: Most of the engineering students are well conversant with mathematics and reasoning sections in SSC examinations. On the other hand, they are often not very good in English and general awareness sections. But these two sections are very uncertain ones and very proficient English students are also often confused by the questions posed by SSC. So, Reasoning and mathematics hold the key in these examinations
- Attempts in the examination: In the SSC examinations. Mathematics and reasoning sections are most certain ones if you are well aware of the formulae and rules. English and general knowledge sections are not like that since the syllabus and uncertainties associated with these sections are too much to score high in these sections. So, the score you obtain depend on the score you get into math and reasoning sections
- Analyzing ability: Most of the students in these examinations need to well conversant with the analysis of the examination pattern and often engineering students are good at that. But it is also true that other stream students can also score high in this by being good observers and analyzers.
SSC Examinations are mainly based on math and reasoning because English questions are often very confusing and you are never sure of the right choice among the given options in this section. So, it is obvious that you need to score as much as possible in these two sections in order to get selected in these examinations. It is perceived that science and engineering students are very good in math and reasoning, but others can also do the same with hard work and continuous practice on the part of the candidates. So, prepare hard and give your best. Success will definitely be yours.
All the best!!
