Recommended time table for the study of SSC exams

It is good to have a proper time table for daily studies. Now if you are preparing for SSC exams then it becomes compulsory to have a strict time table for all the topics i.e, Reasoning, Maths, GK, English and also for typing practice. Now some of the readers might be thinking why we need a time table. We are not the school kids.

My answer is syllabus is huge and it can't be done if you are studying randomly 1 or 2 hours.

To complete the syllabus on time you should have a fixed time table for all the six days of the week that is from Monday-Saturday and for the last day that is Sunday do one previous year question paper and please it is my request do not solve the test paper on any register or your regular practice copy. 

Instead download an OMR sheet from the internet and keep atleast 50 xerox copies of that OMR sheet for future. 

As I've already said you are going to make a time table for all the six days of the week i.e. from Monday-Saturday. Now how you are going to divide the time for all the topics or what amount of time you should give to each topic so that it gets completed on time.

1. Maths (2 hours daily): Practice with pen and paper. Need both conceptual clarity and learning formulas.

2. Reasoning (1 hour daily): Again practice with pen and paper. Sometimes needs conceptual clarity but otherwise practice of questions regularly. Not much formulas to learn.

3. English (1/2 hour Word Power and 1/2 hour S.P. Bakshi): Need conceptual clarity. Practice of questions.

4. GK (2 to 3 hours daily): Feeding of facts of history, geography, polity, economics, physics, chemistry, biology and extras. So read and store.

5. Typing Practice (Type atleast one passage in 3 days): Practice comprehension passages from your practice sets book or any other book which has passage for typing on WORD-PAD only (no MS word or any other software).

You will notice that I've recommended atleast 7-8 hours daily study to crack all SSC exams. Now If you are thinking how am I going to do that. 7-8 hours daily.

You are not serious Vikas!

I am serious. The only way to motivate your self to study 7 to 8 hours daily by keeping in mind SSC offers Central Government jobs. You will not get these kinds of perks and satisfaction in any State Government job or any bank job.

    1. If you are in that kind of schedule then you have to organize everything. You can use the morning time (minimum 2 hours) and the time after the job. You sit for studies after 7 or 7:30 pm.

      Now I know a stupid question will arise in your mind. Will my body and brain allow me to work after job or in the morning because I love to sleep.

      It is mandatory to get atleast 7 hours of sleep but not more than 7 hours. I think you can manege your daily routine to study atleast 2 hours in morning and 2 and half hours in the evening. i.e, after 7 pm. I can only give you a general because I don't know your conditions and other related things. If you seriously want to crack this exam to get this CENTRAL GOVT. job then you have to do this.

    1. Unfortunately that facility is not available in wordpad. For that you should have internet on your desktop or get any software. I can give you a very useful article for improving and checking your typing speed, accuracy and other related things.

    2. Thanks for the link

      and also if you can add techniques with examples of taking proper notes while reading history, geography etc.

      I know each individual has a personal preference of what he/she considers good notes, but a general idea will be helpful for all.

      Thanks!

    1. Actually GK is not like Maths. Every year there is a variation in the questions of GK topics.

      Suppose in one year there was 5 questions from economics and next year there was 4. Sometimes 3 from one topic and next year 5 from the same topic. So I have ascertained that there is 5 question on average from each topic. So yeah all the seven topics of GK which I have mentioned above are equally important.

    1. As you have already said that last time you have scored 98. I think I don't feel the need to tell you everything from the scratch. If you want the help from the scratch then you can look at the right sidebar of this website in top right corner under the Flipkart advertisement.

      Now for English Vocabulary have plenty of questions like synonyms/antonyms, one word substitution, idioms/phrases sometimes spelling mistakes questions. For this make sure you have a good book for that.

      I will recommend Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis. And last advise is very traditional. Practice as much as you can not from the practice sets. Practice from the previous years papers. Following is the link to the book.

      http://www.flipkart.com/word-power-made-easy-new-revised-expanded-english-1st/p/itmduzxhjhgvkhsb?pid=9788183071000&affid=vikaskrtaa

      For GK you have to revise Lucent's GK atleast three times after the first time reading. There is not any other way. It always creates problem for every candidate.

      Beacause if you have commerce background you will have advantage over Economics but other topics like History, Geography, Science will create problems. Similarly if you arts/humanities background then you will have problem in handing Economics and Science.

      You just have to mug up the facts and that's it.

  6. Hello sir. I'm Shiva, working in night shift i.e. 7 PM - 4 AM, with Saturday and Sunday week-off. Could you please suggest anything to me regarding time table. I have been preparing for competitive exams for 4 years. Your suggestion would be very helpful.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You are in the night shift that means in the daytime --- REST. Adjust your time table like.

      1. After job get sleep of atleast 7 hours (not more than 7).

      2. That means if you reach home at 5 then 5 to 12 pm for sleep and nothing else. Forget everything and everything means EVERYTHING (friends, girlfriends too, wives also and family and everything that comes between you and your sleep). That is because you will require energy for study.

      Yeah I know this strict time table will make you a SAVARTHI INSAAN. But don't worry it will continue until you get selected for the job.

      3. You should be at you study table or wherever you study at sharp 1:00 pm. Adjust important things like Lunch and anything else which you think will 5 to 10 min only in between this strict time table. And I said very important things.

      4. Follow my strategies given in the sidebar titled as "Strategy for SSC CHSL 2014"

      You will think How I am gonna do this. Well the answer is very simple you are not free like students. You are employed that means you have adjust the things smartly. Don't worry just practice and have patience. You will get selected if you prepared with full dedication.

  7. Could you please suggestion the strategy to be followed when one has applied for all the bank exams exams and SSC CHSL as well? How our preparation should be? Thank you.

    1. Frankly speaking You can't prepare for both BANKS and SSC exams simultaneously as there is huge difference between the quality of questions between bank and SSC exams.

      Yeah I know the so called stupid coaching center mangers and Receptionists will tell you the preparation for both the exams can be done simultaneously. Those receptionists doesn't even know the difference the square and cube of a number.

      Here are the reasons why you can't prepare for both exams simultaneously:-

      1. Difference between GK of both exams: You don't have much questions from topics like Indian Polity, History, Eco,, Geo and Science in bank exams. Sometimes 1 or 2 questions. Because the main syllabus of bank exams is Current Affairs both National and International. It includes Sports, Persons in news, Awards winners. recent development, government policy news, books and authors.

      AND on the other hand SSC GK is have questions from Social Science and General Science (nearly 40 marks of gk). 10 marks for Current affairs and computer etc.

      2. Second reason is If you are preparing for SSC then you have to focus more on maths because it is considered to be the most difficult maths section in any competition exam. Almost 25 to 30 marks of maths sections comprise of questions from Algebra, Trigonometry, Mensuration and Geometry.

      Reasoning of SSC exams is very easy you can prepare it very easily in just one and a half months of continuous practice.

      And maths of bank section is very easy. Almost 20 questions from BODMAS Rule. 5 to 10 for Chart and diagram based questions. You should know very basic maths like Add, Multiplication, Divide and Subtraction and average etc.

      And reasoning of Bank is difficult. You have questions from Arguments, Assumptions, Deduction, Input-Output, Coded Number, Coded Relationships, Coded Binary and other related chapters from Logical Reasoning.

      SSC Reasoning section has almost 90% questions from easy Verbal reasoning.

      So I think understand this in short.

      ---> SSC -- Maths Difficult, Reasoning Easy
      ---> Bank (SBI, IBPS, RBI) -- Maths Easy, Reasoning Difficult.

      You can prepare for any one in.

  8. Thank you so much for your valuable suggestion, you are truly of great help to me, who is under immense pressure.

    I'm preparing for the bank exams all these years since 2010 without any guidance. Would you please guide me for the upcoming bank exams (IBPS RRB Office Assistant, RBI Assistant, IBPS PO, IBPS Clerk)? I decided not to concentrate on SSC CHSL, as you suggested that it's not possible to prepare for both bank exams and SSC.

    1. M tyra is full of shortcut methods and it is good if you have strong base in basics. Shortcuts are basically used to get rid of long calculations but it is useless to study directly shortcuts to solve the questions. You can use M. Tyra if you have strong understanding of every concept.

      I have strictly recommended RS Agarwal & Sarvesh K. Verma for the SSC Exams.

    1. Hello Pankaj

      If you are preparing for CGL then you will have to give more time to maths and english because in tier 2 they have only maths and english.

      However, for CHSL you can should give atleast 3 hours for maths and english giving 1.5 h to each topic. And 1 h each for GK and reasoning.

      For list of books (btw there are only 8 books for SSC exams) for SSC exams I have given them in sidebar of this website titled as 'Best SSC Books'. (Scroll down to see list of books if you are seeing this website in mobile.)
