SSC CGL Exam Preparation Strategy and Guidelines

Combined Graduate Level Exam has been conducted yearly for the past couple of years. Prior to 2010 it used to be irregular and not many vacancies used to be there. These days it has become the largest exam of the country perhaps only challenged by Bank PO Exams. It offers you a large number of options in the same way as UPSC Civil Services Exam. However, it is not as vast as IAS Exam. For those who see IAS as a distant dream or want a decently paying job this is a very important exam. I have been giving advise to fellow aspirants since 2010 through my Wordpress and Blogspot blogs. Now that I have struck a cord with HubPages, I wanted to organize all that I have learnt or written about the exam to this thread.


This guide was written for 2012 CGL Exam. But may be very relevant for next few versions.

Is it your first attempt for CGLE?

What is SSC CGLE?

For those who are first time aspirants, it will be required to give a brief introduction about what is this exam all about. SSC CGLE stands for Staff Selection Commission Combined Graduate Level Exam.

Staff Selection Commission: SSC (like UPSC) is an organization entrusted with recruiting people for government jobs at subordinate (Non-Gazzetted) levels. UPSC recruits all the Gazzetted Employees whereas SSC recruits all the non-Gazzetted ones. Difference between Gazzetted and non-Gazzetted is somewhat complex. It is sufficient to understand that Gazzetted employees are Officers and are at higher level in the hierarrchy from non-Gazzetted employees.

Combined Graduate Level Exam - A few years ago SSC had separate exams for recruiting Inspectors, Auditors, Sub Inspectors, Assistants, etc. CGL Exam used to be there but it was used for only a few posts but overhead was huge because Mains exam used to be subjective type. It used to take 2 years for the exam to be completed. Hence, new exam used to be conducted every 2 years. Gradually, more and more post were brought into CGLE and from 2010 onwards mains was changed from subjective to objective type. This brought speed in evaluations and results. More and more people have started discussing about it now because it is made yearly, has a large number of attractive post, is entirely objective type and the results take only a year.

You can check the number of posts on the side link.

CGLE Eligibility and Schedule (2012)

To be eligible for taking CGLE you must be:

  1. Domicile: An Indian Citizen
  2. Education: A Graduate. (Note: Those who have not completed their graduation at the time of filling the form are not eligible).
  3. Age: Between 18 years and 27 years (As on the date of notice).

Important Dates related to the exam are:

  1. 24/03/2012 - Date of Notification.
  2. 20/04/2012 - Last Date of Submission of Applications.
  3. 01&08/07/2012 - Dates of Prelim Exam. To accomodate all the candidates the exam will be conducted in 2 phases.
  4. 15&16/09/2012 - Date of Mains Exam.

You can check these dates for any changes on SSC website @ www.ssc.nic.in

Dates for calling candidates for Interview and Computer Proficiency Teas will be decided at a later stage.

Between the notification date and the Prelim Exam you will be effectively have 3 months to prepare. This time is sufficient for many to make a good attempt at this exam because it doesn't require mastery over vast syllabus. But don't forget that this is a competitive exam and is will be easy for all. That is why it is better to have an edge over the others to excel in the exam.

Preparation for CGLE

I would like to tell you a strategy which I used effectively in SSC 2010. When I attempted the exam back in 2010, I was working in an IT company having a comfortable life. I filled the form based on the information provided by a friend who had recently been posted as Excise Inspector through SSC 2006. Yes, it was very difficult to believe that a SSC 2006 candidate got his posting at the tail end of 2009. Anyways, I filled the form because I liked the Inspector profile and planned to make a serious attempt with 2 months preparation. My success depended on following 5 things:

  1. Choice of sources
  2. Full length Practices
  3. Personalized Strategy, and
  4. Constant Motivation.

I understand the individuality. One strategy which works for me may not work for my friend. That is why I will try to generalize my strategy so that you can use it one way or the other. This strategy can help some of you, if not all, to clear the CGLE with normal efforts and no coaching.

1. Choice of Sources

You don't have to fill cupboards with books just to have a feel that you are going to compete. Restrict the number of books you use to less than 4. You may also have some more books but treat them as mere reference books. You don't have to finish all the books from start to finish. Find out how they can help you the best by reading them or asking for reviews on the internet. I will recommend some of the books I fee are useful

  1. Quantitative Ability by Arun Sharma: Remember that this is a CAT book. I recommend you to read the theories of topics relevant to CGLE. This will be helpful for concept builder and reference. Solve only limited problems from this book.

OR

  1. Quantilative Ability by R S Agarwal: This is also a good book and can be used as an alternative to the above book. It also has exhaustive and useless number of problems. Please don't get lost into it.
  2. Verbal Ability: I can't help you much on English. It is one of my weak point. Though, I made up for English by reading Newspapers and Magazines in Office, it was still not enough to correct my Grammar. You can Try Wren & Martin for this. There is no better book on Verbal Ability.
  3. Non-Verbal Reasoning by R S Agarwal: A separate book is not required for this but it is your choice. You can purchase this book if you are weak in Reasoning.
  4. Sample Papers Book: This book is your most important resource for the exam. It gives you an understanding of the previous year papers and to test your strengths and weaknesses. You can buy either by Kiran Prakashan or by Upkar Prakashan. Use it everyday.
  5. Others: Apart from this have a yearbook, a monthly magazine and if possible read newspaper daily. If you are finding it difficult to kill time you can try reading NCERTs as well. :)

2. Full Length Practices

A good practice is as much necessary for a champion as a good diet is. Test your understanding with timed tests. Start with topicwise tests and build your stamina. Then you can go for a full length test once in a fortnight. It is very important to keep note of time while practicing the test. Evaluate yourself with negative marking and classify your mistakes as silly and genuine.

Take lessons from these tests that you will eradicate chances for silly mistakes and try to skip the topics in which you are genuinely weak. It may be difficult to attempt more than 80% of the questions in the given time but try to make sure you read all the questions and attempt only the ones which you find easier and solvable. Timely practices give you confidence about your preparation as well as provide food for thought.

3. Personalized Strategy

It is common knowledge that every body has his strengths and weaknesses. For competitive exams it is very important to understand your plus and minus points. While working on strengths gives us confidence, improving our weak points may become a big pain. It is not useful to worry about the cut-offs before the exams. It is fine to have the previous years' data but predicting the current years' cut-off will only lead to the wastage of time. Let us now come to the exact strategy.

 
Prelim Marks
Prelim Weightage
Mains Marks
Mains Weightage
Total Weightage
Arithmetic
50
25%
200
50%
41.7%
Verbal
50
25%
200
50%
41.7%
Reasoning

25%
0
0%
8.33%
General Awareness
50
25%
0
0%
8.33%
Source: Gurpreet Seehra

Understand that you need to crack both the Prelim and Mains in this attempt to get a job. If you see the exam pattern, you will know that the weightage is tilted towards Verbal Ability and Arithmetic. Remember:

  1. There will be little time to prepare for Mains separately. You will waste time expecting for the Prelim result to be out before opening books for Mains.
  2. Mains carries 400 marks while Prelim carries only 200 marks. Mains has only Arithmetic and Verbal Ability.

Keeping these 2 things in mind you will be able to make the most of your time. When your Prelim preparation is in line with your mains preparation you will gain three times more. The above chart outline these facts. Total weightage of Reasoning and General Awareness combined is less that 20%. This does not mean that you can ignore your weak subjects and risk clearing the cut-offs. I just want you to take home the following points.

  1. Keep in mind that Verbal Ability and Arithmetic will be useful for Mains as well. They are majority subjects, therefore, devote more time on them.
  2. General Awareness requires a lot of time and may give you sleepless nights because it is very difficult to understand how much is enough. Sit down and tell yourself that getting above 30-35 in GA will not be a realistic goal howsoever you study. Getting 15-20 marks is sufficient in it if you can utilize your precious time in other more measurable subjects.
  3. Don't ignore your weaknesses even if they are minority subjects, they may let you down. Give at least 25% of your time to your weakest subject if it is a minority subject and 50% if it is majority subject.

4. Constant Motivation

This is more of psychology than guidance. If you want to get the CGLE jobs you will remain motivated to work for it. There may be sometimes when we tend to lose sight of out goals. In those times I used to remember the prestige, security, benefits, peace, etc. associated with the government job to keep myself motivated. You can find the gross salaries of CGLE jobs below.

Hi Nandanik,

Yes, I was. You got eye of an observer. Thank you for appreciating my effort, it gives me satisfaction.


reeturajsingh 2 years ago

thanxx bro for this helpfull effort...income tax inspector is better or central excise??which of these two has enough chances to earn money in other way,hope u''l understand what i'm saying...is it easy to crack for IT inspector in first attempt within 2 months preperation???


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Reeturaj,

It is very much possible to get ITI in first attempt with just 2 months practice. I am such a case. I prepared for 2 months before test and then studies well before Mains and Got ITI. Though I got a low rank (361/854) and hence didn't get the desired location. I wish you well and hope you are among the toppers.

About the money thing, I have heard that Excise is better. They get good chance as Custom inspector to open their mouth. This is not based on my experience but by hearing 2nd hand experiences. But, excise Inspector is very tough job as compared to ITI. They also have to wear uniform which is good/bad depending on how you take it.


reeturajsingh 2 years ago

thank u very much for replying bro..well final results k kitne dino baad joining hoti hai dear freind..actuly i'm completing my btech final yr,i'm going to appear in this exam my first choice is ITI and then CEI.i'm not overconfident but i think if i study for 2 months that wud be enogh to crack ssc.well how much seats are there for ITI.aur humari engineering se to better hai na ITI brodaa???


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

It takes between 6 months to 1 year on average to get joining after the result. It depends on the zone. I got joining in Nagpur after 1 year. This year I think there are around 250 posts for ITI (unofficial source). If you enjoy the kind of work, ITI is better than Engineering. Remember that you will have to be very patient because you will not be a decider in Govt job.

sir plz advice me whether a practice book like upkar prakashan is alone enough for cgl preliminary to get around 130 marks or other books like RS agarwal for eng and maths too required for individual subjects coz i have my semester exams in may..so i have hardly 1 month and 10 days for prep after my sem exams...do advice me coz i want to go thoroughly for subjects book in mains only due to lack of timebefore pre exams...plz help me brother....


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Since you have limited time, go by the generic book like Upkar or Kiran. Remember to check the old question papers and cover all the topics from which the questions have been asked. Try to improve speed for common topics instead of learning a lot of new topics. I feel that it is sufficient to cover it in 40 days of 3 hour study if you are from maths background time 12. English is key, make sure that you are not too weak in that.

Thanks!


reetu raj singh 2 years ago

thank u very much sir...is that practice book upkar n all is sufficient for english too or some other book is needed for priliminary? if yes then which book and also tell for general studies portion...ur advice is very imp for me..

Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

The vacancies for 2012 have not been announced yet, they usually arrive during the interviews. Total Excise Ins and ITI vacancies can be between 500 and 1500.

It is not very difficult to crack but as much difficult as a Bank PO.

Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Vaibhav,

You have a great chance this year in SSC because this is the first time SSC is providing opportunities for final year students.

About Cut-off, most probably there will not be any sectional cut-off. This is the trend so far. Even if it is there, it will be bare minimum like 5-10 out of 50. Best of luck to you.

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Vaibhav,

Check these out for Upkar:

This was the book I referred. I couldn't locate Kiran on the net. You can follow this book. Make sure you purchase the updated one. Better go to a Book store and check before purchasing.

Thanks


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

I got 135 in 2010, you may target 120 above for 2012. Cut-off is generally between 90-100.

hi Vaibhav,

You will not be considered for the states which you have not filled. This will only cause problem if you want to take other states also. Some jobs are mostly in NCR region so don't miss Delhi Region.

Have a great luck!!

reeturajsingh 2 years ago

brother i have got to know that iti vacancues have reduced to 40 % this year and there should be atleast 24 marks in english and g.k . each to to be qualified in tier 1 excluding the required marks or overall cutoff...heard through coaching centres...is that right???


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

That is fine. Being weak in GK is normal. Just work on english because that is a more serious case. You may leave GK entirely but not english.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

According to my sources the thing about the ITIs are true because I got to know from headquarters that there will be nearly 250 posts. About the marks , it is totally useless. Sectional cut-off can never be so high (if at all it is there). Although, you will have to target 24+ to safely clear the prelim.


Vaibhav 2 years ago

Sir i have started working on Gk through Lucent..

will it b sufficient??

so that he can also get time for I.A.S. preparation as well as get posted in Delhi ?


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

You need to opt for Assistant in CSS for the 2 reasons. 1. Posting in Delhi, 2. Exposure the the programmes of the Ministry concerned in which you are posted.


skm 2 years ago

but as you hav told that workload in css is very high.... in this way i think that if one would become I.T.I in Newdelhi... wworkload will be low and will get the a lot of time for preparation


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Yes, you are right. But it may backfire because:

1. There are very few ITI posts in Delhi (generally less than 30).

2. There is tougher competition for ITI.


skm 2 years ago

yes you are right.. i hav also planned to become I.I.I in delhi wid ssc 2012 xam and started the preparation for civil from 2013... let"s see wat happens.. as i hav sem xam till 31 nd will get only 1 month to prepare for prelims...

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Bal Krishna,

I enquired from my friend and was informed the following about the Stat Inv.

1. Field Work: About 60-80% of the workforce is engaged in field work which includes door to door conversing. You may get to work in office but such chances are less.

2. Promotions: They are slow. Generally, it takes close to 10 years to come to 4600 Grade pay (i.e. is the grade pay in SSC Assistants and Inspectors). After that it may take only 5 years to get 5400 GP and Indian Statistical Services Cadre.

3. Transfers: It is relatively easier to get transferred to the home location in this job.

Thanks

CSS Assistants have tougher work schedules as compared to ITIs. Therefore, ITI in Delhi is better in my view. But either of them is good for preparing for Civils.

Dear sir ,

After analyzing tier 1 exam of SSC CGLE 2010 & 2011 ,

NONE of the questions in maths section had questions from topics like TRIGONOMETRY, GEOMETRY .

Why is it so ? As Trigonometry and Geometry are included in the Revised syllabus of

SSC CGLE 2012.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Pradeep,

You put it in an innocent way. It still is a bad way to make choices. I will advise you to disregard this factor. Coming to the question, I haven't heard this in Central Secretariat. State Secretariats are found to be very corrupt.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

You are correct Nikhil. This calls for being selective in preparation. I would suggest that we should not leave these topics outright but be prepared. So that we don't lose out if there are large no of questions from these sections.

Nikhil,

CPT means computer proficiency Test. In this test, you have to show that you are proficient in Microsoft Office applications (such as MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint).

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Jitin,

Marks may not be important. Interviewers may have first impression of the candidate based on marks but it is the way you conduct yourself and answer their questions that matters. You may lose the benefit of good first impression but the last impression is in your hands. That is the time when you will be graded. So, be positive!!

Dear Gurpreet very much thanks for your response in advance. As i have seen above that u scored 502cumulative score and got 361 rank. This means that if i have to get a posting on my choice such as that in NCR i have to score atleast 600 + and for that atleast a score of 150 in tier 1. Mr scores in english are very poor in mocks and previous papers between 7 and 10. can u guide to increase my gk score as it is turning out to be a nightmare for me.

Really admirable work Sir ! such a nice platform to get a practical guidance .

Sir i am a B.Tech(IT)2012 pass out and has applied for SSC CGL2012. now after finishing my exam in May, i am in dilemma should i prepare for SSC ? or focus on getting a job in IT ? because it seems it is very less time remain to get a good mark in SSC as people are saying . vi-d-way i have scored an average percentiles in CAT2011, E-litmus and have taken an overlook of RS Agrawal in final year as well as have a good interest in GS , that is all u can say i have prior practices.

please help me ! should i prepare for this exam now ?


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Don't get disheartened Arvind. You can clear the exam with 1-2 months' preparation. Just have confidence and go all out in the exam. There is no use quitting now.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

There has been no sectional cut-off for English so far. However, if your English is weak you mus work on it to get better rank. One good way is to read "Word power Made Easy" by Norman Lewis. It has good list of high frequency words and systematic chapters to help you in vocabulary.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Harshit,

First of all I would like to tell you that between rank 1 and rank 361 there is a difference of only 20-25 marks. Also, I cleared CGL in 2010 when there was no negative marking. So, you can think of getting same no of marks to get Delhi. 135-140 will be a good score for Tier-I.

To improve GK, I would suggest you Lucent G.K. book. It is a concise book covering most of the General Studies Topics. It will help you score 20+ in G.K.

-Gurpreet

I also made my frst atmpt this year,a half heartd atmpt.paper 2 was easy,although i made lots of mistakes.but my paper of concern is paper 1.what to do with those multiple answer questions?


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Multiple answer questions can be a big help for those with thorough preparation. On the other hand, they help in eliminating the effect of guess work. I also faced problems with these kinds of questions and my performance in Paper 1 was, consequently, low. Don't worry about the type of questions but the marks that you will get. I think that a poor performance in paper 1 is expected for many. Paper-2 is the actual decider. Those who did extremely good in Paper 2 will make the difference.

I will suggest you thorough study of IX to XII NCERT books as well as some common books mentioned in below link to do well in multiple answer questions:

http://urharry.hubpages.com/hub/upscprep-books

Honestly speaking, the paper-1 was of moderate difficulty for those with 4-5 months of preparation.

Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

You must not leave your current job for Auditor. Even if you consider 10 years you will be better off than Auditor. It is a clerical job. Although promotions are good but it won't match with your banking job. I don't see why do you want to take up any NON-Interview post in SSC. It doesn't make much sense.

It is absolutely possible to prepare for IAS after work. You need to be consistent. Which means you need to gvie 2-3 hours a day atleast 20-25 days a month for about 1 year. Rest depends on your choice of subjects and the material used for preparation. I hope you will be on your way very soon.

Post preference will be given precedence to state preference.

Suppose You have selected 10 states. Your first Post preference will be checked sequentially for the available states one by one. If none of the states are available, the same will be repeated for other post preferences sequentially.

Arun 2 years ago

Hi Gurpreet Seehra,

Really nice thread. First of all thanks for sharing and helping all of us to know more about SSC and strategy for preparation.

I have some personal Query:

I too work in MNC company but interested to move to central govt job in future taking SSC CGL this year. I have few doubts cause of which I was little confused I selected MEA in list of postings over other posting

1) How powerful is the Assistant Ministry of External affairs post, is this just another clerical file managing job like CSS or have some authority and promotions in future like Inspector of Income Tax, Inspector examiner etc(asking whether challenging and can show talent in MEA like in inspector jobs)

2) Heard in MEA can move to foreign embassy once in 3year and next 3yr in Delhi throughout the tenure and salary will rise upto 1.25L/month in abroad is that true. And will they allowed to take family along with them?

3) Third and important doubt is if I got some other group B posting can I join that post and then take SSC exam again in the very same year as the reason to move to some other group B posting(same level) or only allowed to move to higher posting like group A/IAS like that?

Or do I have to reject the offer and try for next year results?

Really will be helpful if you clear my doubts thanks in advance.

Coaching is good to have a certain direction for studies. But it is not necessary. Moreover, it has become very costly to get good coaching.

As far as the institutes are concerned, I don't have any experience about the Rau's or any other postal study course.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Arun,

Thank you for the comments. Let me answer your question with the best answers available with me.

1. Promotions are certainly good for assistant jobs and you may become an Indian Embassy Member in your career. I am not clear about the "power" aspects.

2. I am not aware of any 3-3 year cycle. This looks doubtful. But if you are sent abroad, you will definitely be allowed to take your family along.

3. You can take up SSc again even if you are in job. You will have to take a "No Objection Certificate" before going for interview and also notify your department before taking up the exam.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

In IB workload is high and promotion prospects are limited. But it is a powerful and respectful job. In railway too workload is high and promotion prospects are less. I am not sure about CVC.

You may consider the switch if the job location is a concern for you. Career growth wise PO is better. Work wise you will be more relaxed in the DA job. If you have plans to reach higher, you will get some time to study at home.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

ITI Promotions are good.

IT Officer 5-10 yrs

Assistant Commissioner – 10-15 years

Deputy Commissioner – 4-5 years

Joint Commissioner – 4-5 years

Additional Commissioner – 4-5 years

Commissioner – 4-5 years

Minimum and maximum is for average candidates. It can be delayed further due to personal and organisational factors.

Most of ITIs can expect final posting as DCIT or JCIT.

CSS are promoted as Section Officers >> >> Under Secretary, etc..

Average timings are not known to me.

Hi Naveen,

I understand your dejection. The only thing you can do now is to check your weaknesses and strengths and work on weak points. Try o fill up PO an other exams so that you are kept engaged in preparation. Come out stronger next year. Remember, if you are not able to read all the questions with peace, you are lacking in speed. And if you have speed you are definitely lacking in accuracy and skill. Work on these things and you will see yourself rise to 125+


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Sheffin,

Assistant in MEA is not very very tough to get. Your chances depend on the number of posts (which varies each year). It is not open yet. No of marks required will also depend on that. I will suggest you to score above 425+ after interview.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Ashok,

SSC Exam doesn't deserve any coaching. The institutes may be a waste of money. The teachers are the ones who cleared SSC but didn't get good posts and are thus appearing again. I will suggest you to read some books than join a coaching institute.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Arun,

For Tier-II, go for previous papers. Concentrate on your reading speed for comprehension. Try a lot of passages, read newspapers daily. Learn Word power Made Easy word List by heart. For Maths Read Arun Sharma and R.D. Sharma.

To me ITI is better because of better promotions. But more or less they are equal jobs.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Aniket,

I understand that the SSC Pattern has changed gradually and is not same as in 2010. I feel that with the change in pattern the exam difficulty remains more or less same. I could attempt 40 qs (with 37 right) in Quant this year with very little practice and a surprisingly large no of Trigonometry and geometry. Scoring 325 may be tough (I could score only 308 when I took it in 2010). But if you are scoring just 100+ marks in Tier-1, 325 should be your aim to get the best post. Definitely 300 is a very good score in Tier-II but it is not as difficult as scoring 150 in Tier-1. If you can score 100+ (excluding GK) in Tier-1, you can also score 300+ in tier-II.

I accept your criticism of Arun Sharma that it has fallen short of its expectations in Geo and trigonometry. RD Sharma is another good book for these topics.

P.S. My comments are generally based on the assumption that candidates don't want to leave any stone unturned for getting their top post.

Wish you well that you get your coveted post.

Luckily for you, there is no sectional Cut-off this time. But still 6 qsns is very low. Perhaps you didn't plan the exam well.

-Gurpreet

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

There is a chance if you have above 90% accuracy. or Tier-II you will get hole 2 hrs for 100 Quant questions. But the way you have faltered in Quant, you have to improve speed and skills in this paper. Hope you will outperform yourself. Check out R D Sharma (Class XI) and New RS Aggarwal (Arithmetic).

-Gurpreet

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Arun,

Last time I checked, I had attempted 157 qns. That was around 4-5 mins before the bell. It is definitely above 160. This included 10-15 intuitive guesses.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Marshall,

You should aim for 300. Anything near that figure will take you there. Remember, Tier-II is more scoring than Tier-I. Aim Big!!

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Varun,

I will ask you to aim for 300 in Mains for a sure shot chance. For Quant, you can aim for 140 and for English 160. This can be either way based on your strength. This is an achievable score. You must study new topics. Check out R D Sharma Class XI and Wren n Martin can be bought for Grammar.

-Gurpreet.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Siva,

1. You are right that RS Aggrawal is not very useful for vocabulary point of view. For this you can study word list at the end of "Word Power Made Easy". It is a small high frequency word list which SSC is very prone to lland on. This year's Tier-I had many words from this list and the same is expected to follow. For grammar you can go for Wren n Martin but it is not my taste and I recommend it if you need a book for grammar.

2. I meant to say R D Sharma for Class XI. Others can also be useful but I am not aware of their topics.

3. I am not sure about what type o questions you are referring to in the 3rd questions. Please elaborate.

Marshall 2 years ago

First of all i would like to thank you for giving me good suggestions.

Should we expect the questions more from geometry and trigonometry in tier 2 as given in tier 1.

What are highest marks in 2011(tier1 and tier)? And what is your expectation this year?

Please tell me is there any standardization in ssc exams? I am asking this question because the exam i was given (8th morn) was tough. But evening session exam was easy. In english section we are given big comprehension paragraphs and also questions on figures of speech. But in evng session paragraphs are small.

Thanking you.

For Quant I will recommend RD Sharma (Class X-XI) and Arun Sharma together. You can also try either of RS Aggarwal or Arihant for all Quant Topics if you don't like the first 2 books.

For English Word Power Made Easy and Wren n Martin will be sufficient.

publication of the book which you referred to.

my third questions(plz see my earlier questions) is most sensitive/very very important and also about the big enemy to my time management. but i am not able to type the questions as the questions contains square root of "x", square root of "a" due to which i cannot reproduce/type as it is in the question paper. however i will try to type the questions tomorrow and please tell me what should be the way of approaching to those types of sums.

18 june 2013 is a long time away. I don't know why Infy has become laggard in all the fields.

My advice, never skip Infy, 4-5 months of training at Infy Mysore will be one of the best periods of your life (until you are uninterested to go). Moreover, there is ample amount of time before joining. You can do hell lot of things apart from preparation till that time. Remember my words, never skip Infy. If you don't like it, you can always flunk in training and go back home within a few months.

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Hi Siva,

These are tricky questions indeed. SSC have started using their brains to put these tough sums. It takes a little time to understand how to tackle them. I could solve only qn no 1,4 & 5. 2&3 are very difficult my standard and I am definitely going to leave them in the exam.

All these questions are from Algebra section. You have to master algebraic identities and see the trick.

Q1: this question is a simple application of the identity.

If a+b+c=0 then a^3+b^3+c^3-3abc=0 and the answer is 0.

since a+b+c=8, a-4+b-3+c-1=0.

Q4: You simply have to put in the values and churn it off. The final answer is 2. Though it takes around 1-1.5 minute to solve but worth a try.

Q5: This one is again solved through algebraic identities but with a little trick.

x2+ y2 + z2 -xy-yz-zx = 1/2(2x^2+ 2y^2 + 2z^2 -2xy-2yz-2zx)=1/2(x^2+ y^2 -2xy +x^2+ z^2 -2zx+y^2+z^2 - 2yz)

=1/2( (x-y)^2 + (x-z)^2 + (y-z)^2) = 1/2 (1^2 + 2^2+1^2)=3

in order to master these questions you will need to be thorough with the proofs of these identities so that you can use them according to the demand of the questions. Do let me know if you figure out answers/tricks to do q no 2&3. Best of luck for your preparation.

-Gurpreet


arun bera 2 years ago

@SIVA

second question is very simple. divide the equation by 3/5 and then square it. the answer is 9/5.

5a + 1/3a = 5

3a + 1/5a = 3(divide the eqn by 3/5)

9a^2 + 1/25a^2 + 2.3a.1/5a = 3(square the eqn)

9a^2 + 1/25a^2 + 6/5 = 3

9a^2 + 1/25a^2 = 3 - 6/5

9a^2 + 1/25a^2 = 9/5(ans)

Sumit,

Lucent is the most important book for GK and has no match. Keep in mind that you don't have to remember all the facts. Just go through them. Some of them will stick others won't. If you get 35 qns from Lucent in exam, I hope you will be able to answer 20+ of them right. This is a good score.

I had studied only history part from GK and have got all 5 history qns right this year. Which is very good even if I had to waste 2 hrs for 5 days for those 5 marks. I am scoring 14 in GK this year and those 5 are nearly 40% of my GK marks. So, read whatever you can but do read.

P.S. Mains has no GK so you have a lot of time to finish Lucent.

Anil,

you can try timed tests by picking up previous year papers. This will give you a lot of problems to solve and improve upon. I would advise you to aim for 250 marks in Tier-II. You will definitely be able to score 65+ questions in maths in Tier-II (which will have 10 easy graph based questions). You have good accuracy so this will be enough. Similarly, scoring 125+ in English won't be a problem. Just prepare well.

For these kind of problems, R S Aggrawal is the typical book. For State civil services you will need some guidance and good books to start off with.

Check out this article, it may be of help for general studies.

http://urharry.hubpages.com/hub/upscprep-books

To start off make sure that these 2 are the subjects you are going to stick to. Reading GS books on these subjects will let you know whether you will stick to them or not.

There is no individual cut-off in SSC.

The key to success is practice and good guidance. SSC doesn't require coaching. You need good books ad\nd some time to prepare. You should start with Word Power Made Easy and R S Aggarwal. Refer to previous papers to check the kind of skills you need.

Hi Amit,

Try to get 290+ in Tier-II to get a good chance at these 3 posts. AEO is considered on par with ITI with some give and take. The AEO has more executive powers but promotions are slow. It also carries frequent transfers all over india whereas ITI don't get transferred outside their zone till ACIT position.

subho 2 years ago

my English is grammatically right,I think so. My writing is based on the spoken English. And I can write essay about any subject. But in SSC question paper, it's difficult for me to find which part is error(except very simple grammatical mistakes I can identify),it seems each sentence is write according to the sense of the sentence. so it affects my English scoring. vocabulary is endless, so it's in the hand of luck. please, suggest something how to improve English scoring & error correction part.

Hai gurupreet, i m an aspirant like u. i have done my graduation in pharmacy. since the jobs are not good in this field. i have attempted ssc 2011 without much prep. i got cag auditor. my score is 127, 70(maths),150(english). missed the cutoff by a hairbreadth.( i ve answered visually handicapped section in the last 15 minutes instead of data interpretation q's) my score would have been much better other wise.

this time cgl 2012 im getting 128 in prelims. my english ok. i want to gear up my maths. will the arun sharma and rd sharma suffice. do i need to go to coaching. i always believe self prep is better. no good coaching institues though which teach only maths.

Hi Santosh,

You can do well this time. You should go all out this time and there is no reason that you will be left out. Pity that you missed 10 questions ( I did the same in 2010). R D Sharma is very useful for Trigonometry and Geometry. You can buy either Arun Sharma or some SSC Guide book by Arihant/Upkar. Try to restrict your preparation to the levels of questions asked in the previous exams.

You will have to do some research in order to see how best you can prepare for civils. It depends on your subjects and interests. Coaching institutes may be useful but that too depend on subjects.

For SSC, you don't need any coaching. One can prepare for it within a couple of months of objective level study and practice.

Gurpreet Seehra 2 years ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Thanks for hanging on Nisha. You should decide your Honours course subject based on your interest and future education prospects (if any). Your decision will not matter in SSC. Which is based on school level syllabus. In case you want to go for Civil Services, you need to think of the subject to suit that. As far as the posts are concerned, Assistant jobs ( especially CSS) are more suited to girls due to Stable postings, no outdoor work and good promotions. Remember CSS Assistants are posted only in Delhi, so you may not get your home town..

HI Subho,

Incomes and Spendings are in the ration of 4:3 (as I=Saving+Spending). (1)

Given Ratios: Income 7x:9x:12x Spending 8y:9y:15y (2)

From 1 & 2,

7x/8y=4/3

x/y=32/21 or 21x=32y.

replace x by 32 and y by 21, the equations will become comparable.

Saving of A = 32*7-21*8 =56

B = 9*32-9*21 =99

C = 12*32-15*21 = 69

Thus, savings are in the ratio,

56:99:69, or something like that. This is a slightly big question and must not be attempted in the exam (unless you can compute very fast).

In exam hall, what portion of math should be attempted first?what is your approach on Math in exam hall?Was there any question attempt in the exam hall without rough work & gave the answers as soon as seeing those?

I want to know these sir,because I've to improve math speed with accuracy. Above all, as a UR candidate I'm sitting on the fence as I likely to get 84 in tier 1 & confused whether I'll be selected or not for Tier 2. Thank you once again..

praveen-cfa 2 years ago

Hi Gurpreet,

I have some straight forward questions, if you analyse the nomination details for various posts one finds that there is a column called ranking ...

(1) Are these the ranks assinged as per the total scoring?

(2) If (1) is true,then I find that the candidates with 18,19,21,23 (below 500) are nominated for Auditors in CAG..etc ,..I mean for Non-interview posts.

(3) Is it as per the choice of the candidates ?

(4) If it is as per the Candidates' choice then why would they prefer Non-interview post to interveiw posts.

(5) OR is there any fault with my interpretation ?

If you have some information on this, Kinldy reply.

Sir,

I've a heap of unanswered questions with me. I hope to receive your co-operation.

1. I've cleared Tier -1 with a narrow margin of 85 marks , while the cut-ff for the UR being 82. But i didn't prepare at all for the examination as i was in the final year of my engineering course. I wish to know how many marks are required to grab something out of the examination. ?

2. Suppose, i score 50 in interview , 85 already in Tier 1 , then how many should i strive for in Tier 2 to be eligible for any post. I mean , Is it like those who reach till interview are sure to get some post ?

85 + 50( Assuming ) + ? = Qualified ( For something )

because i didn't really have any priorities for post while filling up the form.

candidates getting high marks have freedom 2 select their given post according 2 their choice...for ex. if a person has high total marks for excise post but post of excise was in 8th preference in his form.is there any freedom for that candidate having highest cutoff marks for that post????


Saurabh 2 years ago

Hi Gurpreet,

I got 91.75 marks in tier 1 (SC Category) .The cut-off for this category was 64.

What minimum marks should I aim for getting the post of ITI.


Friend 2 years ago

First of all thank you Gurpreet sir for your time. I really feel lucky to stumble upon your page by chance. Some real information and guidance rather than copy-pasting the job advertisements.

I've cleared the prelims with mere minimum marks. The reason for such a weak performance was that I gave the exam half-heartedly and I didn't knew that there wasn't any sectional cut-off. My bad.

However, now I'm giving my 100% for the tier-2 examination. In your opinion, what must be the minimum number of marks I should secure in tier2 and interview combined to get ITI, considering that I secured 80 marks in tier 1 and the fact that I belong to SC quota.

Thanks

Gurpreet Sir,

I really come to your page by chance. It was ma Gud Luck.

I have some questions regarding tier 2. Hope you will get time to answer these:-

(1) I have scored 87 in Tier 1, and I want to know that how much should I score in Tier 2 so as to get a job in group B (Pay Band 4600, 4200).

(2) My Geometrty part in maths is weak so how many questions should I expect from geometry in tier 2 this year ?

I have seen last year's marks and a lot of general students have scored 373-400 and have got ITI and ETI and group B posts. So can we pretend about this year.

O Great Sir that u r back !

We were eagerly waiting for valuable suggestions and guidance.

Sir I am in ex servicemen general category and have scored around 276 (tier I + tier II) in ssc cgl 2012 , so tell me if there is any chance for interview call. Secondly, sir I opted only for interview posts, so will i be allowed for non interview posts. Actually sir the notice of ssc cgl 2012 is ambitious if we read para 12 and para 15 with regard to post preference. I tweeted to ssc chief but didn't got any reply. Also I send email to ssc office but no joy. Hence now I am relying on your comments sir pls do advice me. Thanking u in anticipation

Thanks for your reply, i am ready to study my own as i got not able to self practice by taking coaching after long job hours. I get through the link of preparation strategy and choice of sources to prepare well for each subject. The biggest problem i am facing is the concepts of reasoning every time i lose whenever tried to understand the tricks and logics associated with it. Earlier i used a single book with all subjects, but i found the shortcut solutions, difficult to understand how next step came and so on. Is there any book in the market that is good for step by step solutions. Can u please help me preparing for this section or suggest any reference book.

Respected sir,

Thank you , u r proving good information to us.

my question is

When bank PO rectruitment it is said only "Graduate" but at the time interview many of the bank ask 55% or 60% .

Is it same in SSC for the post of "ITI INSPECTOR, EXCISE, EXAMINER, PREVENTIVE ect...? Do they ask more percentage ?


DANGO 2 years ago

CAN YOU PLZ ELABORATE ON PROCEDURE FOR NON INTERVIEW POSTS. IS THERE CPT OR DEST ONLY. and Yes one more thing if there is any dest for auditor post.


prafullkrdubey@gmail.com 2 years ago

ell I have read enough of points made by different candidates... And I am satisfied that Assistant in CSS may be one of the best posts considering promotion prospects and reputation. .

.

.

But I have a different query.....

.

.

Many of us, if not all, want to prepare for Civil Services... Considering this in mind, I want you all to suggest the best option for those who wish to prepare further,for UPSC. As it is very clear, in that case focus is not on promotion prospects and reputation, but more on ease of work, free time and to some extent the salary that you get.

.

.

Considering that I was told that CAG Auditor offers best opportunity to devote maximum time to studies. I have personally met those who are working as Auditors and said that in the first 2 years they had to do nothing significant. On busiest day,they had to work for 2 hours. They even carried one or two books to the office and studied their as if they were in a library.(Well I was surprised).

.

.

Salary is also no more an issue as Auditors are now in Pay Band 2 (9300-34800) with 4200 Grade Pay(to be implemented this year). So an Auditor will draw a salary of 28000 in hand in cities like Delhi.

.

.

Honestly speaking, I am now convinced that its one of those jobs which gives best opportunity to prepare for other competitive exams.Some may argue that ITI, Excise are far better. But friends, the work pressure their is higher. Comparing the salary now, we don't find much difference now. Isn't it?

.

Remember, I am not saying Auditor is the best career option. I believe it suits best for those who have to prepare for UPSC etc. Because then time and peace of mind is most vital.

.

.

.

I have been called for interview but I am opting for CAG auditor at Delhi. I am expecting 385-390 in Tier 1+ 2. But I don't want other stressful jobs in other states as it will be easiest to prepare for UPSC at Delhi. Do you believe that I should skip interview or is it must to appear. Then I will have to ensure that I do not get more than 20-30 marks, so that I may not get a higher pay scale job. Unfortunately, all jobs with GP 4200 and 4600 are higher in my preference list.

If I could not make it to the UPSC, I will go for ITI after 2-3 years because then I will take it as my career option. But not now.Time factor compels me to do so.

.

.

.

Express your thoughts freely.Come on!!!!!!!

Those working as auditors may also share their opinion.

Comments awaited.

dear sir,

aap ki di gayi jankari mere bahut kaam aa rahi hai aur mujhe khud per vishvas ho gya hai ki baat ban jaye gi. thank u.

sir mai ek handicap girl hu. orphan bhi hu. per aage bhadne k liye kafi mehnat kar rahi hu. mera recently ugc net clear ho gya hai . aur mai ab collage me lecturer lag gai hu.

sir mera next target ssc cgl hai per jise mai har hal me clear kar dungi apni mehnat se.

sir mai aap se guidance lena chahti hu k:

1. sir mai 100% handicap hu. meri fingers nahi hai. per normal person ki trha sare kaam karti hu sivaye good typing speed k. mai ITI ban na chahti hu . maine 2013 cgl k liye rank decide kiya hai.

1. income tax

2. excise tax

3. examiner

4. assistant ( other than css)

kya ye theek hai

No need for coaching, revise your profile (background, education, hobbies, etc).ITI is tough CSS is possible


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

All 4600 posts and CBI SI are similar on salary ground.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

No, they don't.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

No DEST for Auditor. Only for TA. CPT is for CSS


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Interesting. I would recommend you to take up the interview. You will get delhi for CSS and MEA ETC with not much work load. One thing you will be benefitting after switching from 4600 GP to 4600 GP is pay protection. That is , your service will be counted from the previous job. Just weigh your options by checking the preference list and the pros and cons therein. If ITI or Examiner of Enforcement is at the top in your list ( but not CSS and MEA), you may skip the interview for Auditor.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Surely, you will need NOC.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Only if there are insufficient number of people to fill up those posts.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Atleast 30-40 marks for Ex Ins/ DA. 40-50 for CSS and CVC.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Examiner has more corruption (if that is what you want to know). Both are entirely different kind of works. No Comparison.

Sir, I have low color blindness , I can see the difference between all colors but can not differentiate between few shades as it has turns out in Ishiara test. Since Color blindness does not come under Blindness and We do not get any quota under PH. Nor they have mentioned any such criteria in Notice. If a candidates thus rejected can he approach court as In Army or Police advertisements it is duly mentioned that people with color blindness will not be permitted.

and contrary to common belief Color blind people can see all colors, I did not know I had this disability till i took the ishiara test, I can clear other colour tests but this test takes the better out of me.

Praveen, If you have cleared RBI Prelim, you can also clear CGL for ITI. Only new thing you will face is different General Awareness focus. Lucent's GK book will be sufficient for it.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Arjun,

Almost all the Interview posts have salary near or more than 28k. Residential accommodation is admissible with a cut on salary at select locations (which have govt quarters). There may be minor other monetary benefits but can be neglected for now. You can choose From ITI, Examiner, CSS Assistant, MEA Assistant, CVC Asstt, IB Assist, CBI SI, Excise Insp, Examiner, PO as most preferred job for you.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

About a 6-12 months (on average)


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Yes all assistants are posted in Delhi.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

No test for auditor. 355 is not good but you can get Excise Insp if you can muster 60 in interview.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Around 33K salary for both. Most ITIs gets around 2000 extra for petrol. ITI is considered better for departmental promotions. CSS also gives same salary and almost similar workload.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 24 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Color blindness can be a selection criteria in departments with Investigation and policing but you shouldn't be rejected for Office jobs.

Fair chance for CSS. Try to get 60+.

Both TA and Inspector (partially) are Clerical in most respects. TAs have more work than Inspector in all cases. Starting salary is around 17k but after 3 yr promotion to Sr TA can fetch 23k+. Inspector promotion can take 5-10 years. Join and don't miss the next yr exam.

yes it is possible for Excise.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 23 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Definitely, you will be considered for Auditor and JA. You have an excellent chance of getting Auditor at a desired location.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 23 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Definitely, you can study part time i.e. evening/ weekend while in Govt. You will have to inform and seek permission for this before joining the course but it is easy.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 23 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

No posts are particularly available for Chandigarh. At the most they are for Punjab/Haryana or North West region. You can go for Central Excise ( OR Income Tax) Inspector for Punjab region for 4600 GP ( i.e. salary of around 32k in chd). Divisional Accountant, Inspector of Posts and Stat Inv are available at 4200 GP i.e. lesser salary. Central Excise ( OR Income Tax) Assistant and Auditor are available at lower GP.

Gurpreet Seehra 23 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Nothing can be said about ED as the number of posts are usually very less. But with the marks you got so far, 55+ marks in interview would be sufficient to be on the safe side.

You may get Auditor/TA or Junior Accountant. These are clerical posts but there is a scope to rise up to the level of UPSC posts.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 23 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Monthly salary may vary from 28k to 34k from city to city. Apart from that not much is offered. Petrol allowance is there for ITIs for upto 30 litres a month but not all of them get it. There is departmental sim which have some free calls, etc.

Not mandatory, only if its asked in the instructions of the Reg Office Instructions.

You will have to get over the fear. Make some friends who are also willing to improve and try english. You will also have to think about practical ways to get around this difficulty. I would also recommend you to read some english fiction books to start developing a liking for the language. Watching english news and programs are another good way.

You have a strong chance for CE. but if you don't get it. Then you will land up only for Ta ( only if succeeded in DEST). there is no doubt that at 380 TA is not a problem.

raja : The chances for getting home state is inversely proportional to the competition from the state candidates and also on the trickle down of candidates from neighboring states. What has been observed in the past few years regarding the Govt jobs is that TN is one of the last states to fill out. This is a good news for you. This answers your Q 2.

You will get interview call for all the posts you had applied for and will be selected for the one you satisfy merit criteria in the order of your choices. Ans Q 1.

Ans 3. Yes, interview posts are definitely better as they carry higher salaries and better positions. So, work hard on your interview.

Ans 4. For interview, you need to work on your profile. you will be asked to speak about yourself (background, education, possibly community and religion), you hobbies will be inquired about, your graduation subjects may be tested and in the end current affairs related to your background may also be discussed.

Ans 5. You will be definitely seleted for nonn-interview if you have opted for. There is a test (called DEST) for one non-Int post (TA). Others don't have any test.

@ GAURAV: ITI At least needs to pass ITI and ITO exams one after the other to be eligible for ITO. After that eligible candidates are promoted based on seniority and vacancies. It generally takes from 5-10 years for promotion. Failing to pass ITI in 3 years involves job risk and also freeze on increment. ITO exam doesn't involve any penalty.

Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 23 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@surinder103:

I think I had replied to it. only Group C post with GP of 4200 or higher is ITI. The interviews are common to all.

Gurpreet Seehra 23 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@ mohit : All 3 have same salary. ITI and Examiner have good promotions and thus good growth. Excise promotions are slow. work environments vary in these posts. Examiner is generally posted at port cities while Excise and IT folks are posted at various cities all over the country.

There are risks involved in Law Enforcement jobs but these are fewer and far between. Your success depends on how you assess risks and avoid them.

Can't compare transfers because they are governed by same rules of Central Govt. Individual differences exists but they vary officer to officer not department wise.

nitin-jaina: NOC is not required from PSU banks. You can bring your Joining letter as a proof of employment for getting extra points of employment to show off. SSC Officials are right because NOC is required from only Central Govt Employees.

@Rananjay: I think you should give it a try for PO first. Promotions in CBDT may fluctuate from year to year and region to region. There is no promise of inspectorship in years. It can take 8-10 years in normal case. Then there is a wait before you get joining.

Hi,

Plz clarify the following things to me honestly, i will be thankful to you:-

1.) I am working as a system engineer in Infosys, is it wise to prefer any interview post in ssc to the current job.

2.) Can SSC interview post be more helpful than being in Infosys(as i have to work abt 9 hrs here with stress) for preparing UPSC.

3.) If not able to crack UPSC after being in SSC interview post, can that post is sufficient enough to provide me a decent lifeStyle(means in terms of money and respect) in the long run.

4.) Is there any need to do Executive MBA for the sake sake of money making after serving for some years in any Interview post, will there be any additional advantage in the profile due to your SSC job.

5.) Plz also comment about Non-Interview posts in terms of money/status/prep point of view/in the long run.

Plz elaborate at least what you feel important and thankful to you if i get all the answers.

Thanks.

Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 22 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@Sameer:

1. Wise and unwise can be decided based on your satisfaction level at present job and location, your future aspirations. Govt, can't give you onsite postings, chances for switching, in-house recreation facilities and youthful work environment but they have better work timings, good amount of holidays and greater social life.

2. Working hours in Govt are few and far between. These isn't much pressure and the entry level salary is more more than those of SEs in Infy.

3. I think so, if you can life off happily in 20k you can save 30% of your salary. Anual increments are about 10%.

4. Not much, useful than Infy in terms of MBA.

5. I would not recommend Non-I posts for someone at Infy.

thanks for the previous answer sir

1. i have partial colour blindness (can read 7,8 plates out of 14)...is colour blindness too strict a parameter for excise inspector? and...what about income tax inspector? (so that i can try for it next year).

2. if i give interview i ll most probably get excise inspector as i have filled around 10 states(will most likely get some south state) and if i skip the interview i ll get auditor in delhi..comparing both posts which has a better future?

3. what about transfer prospects in excise..in how many years at the earliest can i be transferred to delhi if i join?

4. what are the chances of bypassing the medical examination? is it done by the department or are the departmental officers present in hospital during checkup or is it done just by the hospital staff? it is too risky or can be easily bypassed?

HI Gurpreet.... This time first preference is post and thn state..... like if anybody filled ABCD post preference and XYZ state pref.... First SSC board look into..... if there is any vacancy for A post in X state.... if tat particular state vacancy is filled thn thy will check in rest of the state preference..... It means first they are going to take 1st preference post and no. of state tat candidate gave pref as per state wise..... not post wise.... is it correct Gurpreet.... bcz as per SSC Commissioner he mentioned the same thing in SSC tweet page....

Gurpreet,

Firstly thank you, must appreciate your sincere help and guidance!

I tried to sort my doubts reading your post of Q & A's, unfortunately i could not, there's so many opinions in there which makes it total confusing!

If its not too much trouble, could you kindly guide me . Its my fist time with SSC CGL and i am gna be 27 so hopefully the last

1) I am not too good with maths ( average or below) but in GK & English its the opposite, scored 8 on 9 in IELTS. ..do you think with present standing i will come close to clearing SCC CGL and get my preferred state of Karnataka, Goa or maharastra

2) I am in dubai, working as business analyst for telco, i am confused about the choice of posts, for me the choice would depend on the growth prospect( how fast the promotions) and Reputation, i wouldn't discredit the money making option either , could you kindly help me with post preference.

thanks again

Tarun


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 22 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@Tarun: Hi.

I don't think that average maths will let you down. You will have to make sure that you score average in it. Being good at english is as good as on maths. IELTS is a little different and less trickier than SSc English, so I suggest you not to take it lightly either.

Well, I am a little surprised why do you want to come back. I personally find it hard to adjust to govt environment largely because it kills your desire to work (if any). You can use below link to decide about preferences..

@ARVIND: If you are satisfied with Chandigarh Auditor then I think you can refrain from Interview. But remember, number of vacant posts in chd (not only your rank) will decide if you get it or not. If you have filled one or two neighboring states then you are in a much safer position.

http://sscstudygroup.in/ssc-jobs/cgle-2012-prefere

Well Gurmeet,

Thankyou, its encouraging to know that average math background wont let me down, maths is such a pain for a non background attempt.

i found some useful links on books u suggest for math and English, do you reckon that thorough preparation of this 2 books is good enough for the exams ?

Gurmeet, i did check this corner of your site for some excellent information on Posts, but it only provides me with general info unfortunately doesnot realistically help me decide, if you could elaborate on each post and explain it would be great!

i would want to get back to my country after long, well all i hear about govt job is , upari kamai, bribe, under the table, money money, ..i expect to be a part of administrative service , may b have dignified life, which unfortunately only a non resident of india would b able to explain

Hi Gurpreet,

Thanks for the earlier queries.

I have few more, please help in this also.

1.)I have an idea of running coaching classes as a side business in near future, as i know i will get enough time at least on weekends to devote to other activities, so can it be allowed officially to run a business(or if not allowed commercially, can i somehow manage to show its nt going in my name but other family member and m just a teaching free of cost)while holding a govt post in SSC.

If its not allowed officially and still i do, can it lead to termination or suspension, means please clarify this that hw it can work.

2.)If i want to quit govt(SSC) job for some reason in near future, what are the complications involved.

Is there any time period/bond fixed to be in the service(for any).

Coz If i get selected in UPSC/UPPSC i will get immediate release or some min time period is there.

3.)For the interview posts does SSC provide accomodations also or not, if yes i think they are money saving?

4.)Regarding Transfer point of view, are the transfers bound to be done for every person, if yes hw frequently they are done, please specify the posts also for which they used to be done so frequently.

Can i manage it somehow?

5.)Regarding Leave to study further, if i want, can i get a study leave for 1/2 years? If its posssibe then it will be total loss of pay or at least somepart i ll get even for that period also.

Thanks in advance.

@harshlax;

Sir, my interests are in administration and not much in technical side.

Or, there are very few opportunities in technical field apart from campus interviews and thus hard to get decent jobs.

Or, I have always wanted to join civil services and would love to work in govt jobs as it gives an opportunity to service the public. I would like to use the skills learnt during engineering to improve the work efficiency at my workplace.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 22 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@SAHIL: For GK use lucent but no book can get your 40. You have to be very good at facts and current affairs.

For Maths go for R S Aggarwal, RD Sharma and you can also use Arun Sharma.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 22 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@SAMEER:

1) Yes, you are not allowed to run ur business in Govt job and may face Disciplinary action if reported to higher authorities. But free of cost teaching would not be a business so it won't be a violation proviided that it is out of working hours.

2) You can easily resign without a bond or any compulsion. There is minimum 1 month time for probationers (usually first 2 yrs) and 3 months for permanent. To go for another Govt job you will have to inform ur department at the time of taking exams so that you get NOC for appearing in Interview, otherwise you can be barred from interview.

3) Accommodation for IP ans well as NIP depend upon availability at the station where one is posted.

4) Transfer policies depend fron department to dept. For e.g. in I-T Department transfers are due every 3 years. But happens only in the zone assigned like Mumbai Gujrat. Mumbai candidate will be transferred in that city only and that of Gujrat in the state. On the contrary, All assistant jobs are based in delhi and there are no transfers outside it and even in city there are very few transfers.

I'm aspiring for CSS and have scored 380 marks(UR category).

Will it be better to join something for Interview preparation at this time, or can I prepare on my own.I still have 15 days.

I have done Btech(IT), do they ask questions about the subjects studied during Btech as its been three years since I had studied those.

Please recommend the material(or any good links) that would be helpful to crack the interview.

Is 4 months for Pre. exam and 3 months for Mains exam is more than sufficent (as it is now left for SSC 2013) or little risky.

Very few posts are there for you state. I will advise you not to choose from any assistant post. If you are satisfied with any NE state, ITI (for assam), Excise Inspector, Divisional Accountant, etc will be good choices. If you get selected in ITI, I think you can surely get Guwahati as it is the last choice of many candidates after Chennai.

I am a Rly Employee in GP 4200. I am having the service of 12 years. Till now i am not having the thoughts of preparing for SSC CGL exam. Recently, one of my colleague (same batch) selected through SSC CGL exam, as Tax Asst with GP 2400. Even he is going to get GP 4600 in the next year in Rlys, he was joined it IT Dept as Tax Asst. The reason behind is, there is no other route for getting gr'B' promotion in Rlys. as we are in the Technical dept with non-tech posting. After, his leaving I am in the thoughts of preparing for SSC CGL exam. I know very well that just thoughts are not enough but proper preparation is to be there. When I referred to the previous paper of SSC CGL Tier I exam, I can able to solve the paper to get 40 to 50 marks with my todays knowledge.

Now, I want to request you to please help me in deciding that whether it is possible for me to attempt the SSC CGL exam or my thoughts for preparing the said exam is crossing my limits. I can able to spend hardly 4 to 5 hrs preparation daily and 10 to 12 hrs in weekends. In these circumstances, whether it is possible for me for the SSC CGL 2013 exam.

Hi Gurpreet,

I Am surendhar, working in Yahoo India and my native is chennai. First of all congrats for doing such an awesome work by sharing your valuable experiences. All the best for your service and continuous effort in helping people to achieve what they are upto !!

I always had a dream of preparing for civil services but due to my family financial conditions I have opted for an IT job after completing computer engg from IIT Madras. Even after getting paid well still I have that desire to prepare for civils and move to respectable posts asap but one need to spend lot of time to become successful. So, thought of getting into SSC and then preparing for civil services might be a good option.

*If I would like to get posted in chennai, what are the posts should i prefer to stay here as long as possible??Kindly provide an hierarchy if possible.

*Kindly provide preference in such a way that even If I couldnt clear UPSC exams, then also the post which I have selected should be a good one to get promotion and respect in future??

*Is there any possibility to get govt accommodation for SSC employees(among ITI or CVC or Excise/preventive officers)?

*How SSC officials get treated by their higher authorities??

*Do SSC officials are given powers to take some decisions on their own or they will just be considered as a clerical employee in offices by higher officials??

You might have asked the same kind of questions to some1 to get urself cleared coz u were also taken this job after completing engg and working for a corporate. Thankfully, I have found you to ask these questions. I hope you will help me to take a better decision.

All the best for your UPSC aim !! Thanks in advance friend.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 22 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@raja: Sorry for delayed response.

With the marks you have got, it is difficult to get first few preferences. Also you are ineligible for Assistant posts as they need state preference of delhi. You are left with only Inspector of Post which you may or may not get depending on your Interview marks and vacancies. Try to get 60+ in interview and you will have some chance.

It is not advisable to leave TCS until you get a good post (Inspector of Post is not so good).

Hi Venkateshwarlu,

I would like to inform you that with me 30 other inspectors joined at Nagpur. 2 out of them were ASM in railways with similar experience as you. So, I don't think that it is out of reach for you to excel. However, I would request you to study regularly and brush up with maths and english basics. You will need to make big progress to get 100+. Best of luck to you.

@harun: Pujab posting at 271 is tough. TA can become ITO in 15-20 years. OBC candidates are treated at par with Ur after joining the Job. There is no reservation in promotion for OBC.

@GAGANDEEP: Good to hear. Assistants are posted in Delhi so won't get punjab. CE insp is a good choice for getting punjab. There i no departmental exams for out of turn promotions. They are based on seniority and dept exam combined.

Hi Surender,

It is good to see your interest in this exam looking at your profile. It is true that corporate life doesn't satisfy the soul. I would like to inform you that the whole process of SSC takes about 1.5 years (after notification). It is better though that you start preparing for Civil Services GS along with SSC so that you can make the most of this time.

For getting chennai, you can opt for ITI, CE Inspector, Preventive Officer Examiner, Auditor, etc. Since you also want to have some time for preparation, I would recommend an Office jobs like ITI for your first preference.

Yes, there are govt accomodations at bigger cities but they are subject to availability.

There is a degree of subordination as compared to Gaazzetted officers which is obvious. The CGL (gp 4600) posts are one level higher than clerical posts and one lower than officer.

Power to take decisions come with seniority and in ITI posts the next post of ITO which take 5-8 years and has greater powers to take decisions.

I wish you great luck and success in life.

-gurpreet

piyush 21 months ago

Any update for cgl 2013 paper pattern..


swapnil 21 months ago

hey friends read below details about CGL posts

Income Tax Inspector (ITI):

An ITI generally can be posted at either of the two types of seats which are transferable on cyclic basis. Work related to assessment of tax or non-assessment of tax. When on an assessment seat he is supposed to see the work related to assessment of income tax to be imposed on an individual, partnership firm, company etc; and refund of it in case someone has deposited in excess. He also has to see the work related to TAX DEDUCTION AT SOURCE (TDS) besides being accompanying a raid team. An ITI on non-assessment seat generally has to do do clerical work though he too could be asked to accompany a raid team.

His promotions in the order are ITO, Assistant Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner and so on. He is posted in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,600. He is entitled for 30 liter of petrol if posted on assessment seat. Also he gets a sim from the department on which all STD calls on every type of BSNL/MTNL phone are free; and 400 minutes on other phones whether STD or LOCAL are free for every month. This sim is provided to every ITI irrespective of the seat he is posted at.

To be eligible for promotion to the post of ITO (Group-B Gazetted) he has to pass the departmental exam; but this exam is just for ELIGIBILITY; promotion is on the basis of SENIORITY only which differs from zone to zone. After promotion to the post of Assistant Commissioner the transfer becomes ALL INDIA LIABILITY. Before that the department can transfer him within the zone only unless he himself is interested in the zonal transfer. This is a job without uniform.

EXAMINER:

This is an inspector post also; and posted in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,600.If posted in Headquarter----Clerical/File workIf posted in the field----Executive work e.g. to examine the goods imported or to be exported and assessing duty on that

This is not an uniform post.

His promotions in the order are Appraiser (Group-B Gazetted), Assistant Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner and so on. There is a qualifying period of 3 years for the promotion to the post of Appraiser; means he cant be promoted to that post before completion of three years service as Examiner. This post is considered to be the best among all CGLE posts. One of the main reasons is faster promotions as compared to the other posts of CGLE.

Examiner posts lie in 11 coastal cities only.

Preventive Officer (PO):

Again this is an inspector post also; and posted in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,600.If posted in Headquarter----Clerical/File workIf posted in the field (like an airport/coast etc)----Executive work e.g. prevention of smuggling, assessment of customs duty on goods, can arrest, seize , search, detain etc. on any kind of doubt of smuggling, and etc. Duty is round the clock (You have to work in day/night shift).

Uniform (Ashoka Stambha with 2 yellow strips) is a must.

His promotions in the order are Superintendent (Group-B Gazetted), Assistant Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner and so on. There is a qualifying period of 8 years for the promotion to the post of Superintendent; means he cant be promoted to that post before completion of eight years of service as PO. There is a departmental exam for confirmation; without passing in that he cant be made confirmed; nor he can be promoted to the next post. Promotion period differs from zone to zone since there is zonal seniority.

This post like the Examiner posts lies in 11 coastal cities only.

Central Excise Inspector

This is a post in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,600.If posted in Headquarter----Clerical/File workIf posted in the field (like a range etc)----Executive work e.g. augmentation of central excise & Service tax etc, detection of evasion of taxes etc.

Uniform (khaki) is there but generally optional to wear.

His promotions in the order are Superintendent (Group-B Gazetted), Assistant Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner and so on. There is a qualifying period of 8 years for the promotion to the post of Superintendent; means he cant be promoted to that post before completion of eight years of service as Excise Inspector. There is a departmental exam for confirmation; without passing in that he cant be made confirmed; nor he can be promoted to the next post. Promotion period differs from zone to zone since there is zonal seniority. These posts are everywhere in the country.

Assistant Enforcement Officer (AEO)

This is an inspector post also; and posted in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,600.If posted in Headquarter----Clerical/File workIf posted in the field----Executive work e.g. prevention of money laundering, to conduct searches of suspected persons, conveyances and premises and seize incriminating materials (including Indian and foreign currencies involved), to arrest and prosecute the person suspected to be involved in the act of money laundering, etc.

His promotions in the order are Enforcement Officer (Group-B Gazetted), Assistant Director, Deputy Director and so on.

There are ten Zonal Offices of the Directorate at Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Cochin, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow and Mumbai. The Zonal Offices are headed by the Deputy Directors.

The Directorate has eleven Sub Zonal Offices at Bhubaneswar, Calicut, Guwahati, Indore, Jaipur, Jalandhar, Madurai, Nagpur, Patna, Srinagar and Varanasi, which are headed by the Assistant Directors.

Inspector of Posts (IP)

This is a post in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,600Inspector of posts is there with every postal division. There must be 2 or more divisions in each district. This is the worst post SSC is offering. Presently IP must go to canvass people for getting Postal Life Insurance and also they have to aquire a huge sum for the department. Presently The Department of Posts has given instructions to all circles to enhance their growth by 20 percent. All such burden comes on IPs.

SI in CBI

This is a post in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,200; but it's almost equal to the total salary for the grade pay of Rs 4,600 as CBI executive staff is entitled to additional 25% on BASIC PAY + DA and in addition to that salary of 13 months instead of 12 months each year. Forget about any extra income as CBI keeps a strict watch on its people.

This is supposed to be a very powerful and influential post due to very nature of work. Any IT Inspector/ Examiner or for that matter any other central govt servant will vouch for the fact that CBI is a much feared organisation. I can't say about higher bureaucracy like IAS etc, but for middle and lower level officers, once they come under the scanner, it is very difficult to get away.

Life in CBI is stressful due to heavy workload and deadlines there. Training duration is 32 weeks involving physical training and training on criminal and anti-corruption laws. During the training the daily physical activity includes 2 km run, PT, Drill in the morning and Games/Unarmed Combat Course in the evening.

Friends, as it's generally thought it is not a 24 x 7 job; but sometimes the work streches beyond the usual working hours i.e. sometimes one has to work till 8 or 9 pm. Usually on Saturdays, if the workload is more, the work goes on as usual; though Sundays are spared. Also in some branches like Special Crime etc, the job involves a fair bit of travelling especially in the starting years. The nature and hours of work also differs from branch to branch and place to place. Some branches have less workload and so the personnel can take it easy. No uniform required.

Sub Inspectors in CBI or for that matter any rank in CBI does not possess revolver/pistol. In a very few cases, when a search is to be carried out in some dangenrous places, weapons are issued to the staff. The officers of CBI themselves are not interested in carrying weapon.

Assistant CSS

This is a post in the pay band 9,300-34,800 with grade pay of RS 4,600.As this is now the lowest post in CSS one is supposed to do every work that a clerk does; like typing, noting, drafting and all file work. Without


Bidhuri 21 months ago

Hi Gurpreet,

Firstly I want to congratulate you for doing great job here on your blog.

I have some queries like I'm preparing for SSC CGL 2013. PRE is on 14.04.2013. I have taken books from Paramount Coaching Centre, Delhi. They have sent me 14 books with 3 study material. Now, m totally confused that what should be mine strategy to study. Should I quit GK?

Only Quantitative Apptitude, Maths, Reasoning, English is sufficient to crack PRE or I should take some coaching.

If you will say I should take coaching then its also a big job for me because in Jamnagar, gujarat thete is no coaching centres. Can you give me your contact number on my E-mail ID "DeepRaj1988@gmail.com"?

@manish : 375 marks after Tier-1 & Tier-II will be sufficient for securing these posts provided interview goes average.

@Aaditya : If you are confident about 3 sections and will be able to score 100+ then you may take gk lightly. But don't skip it as there can be sectional cut-offs. I will ask you to attempt at least the easier questions from this section.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 21 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@KAPIL : ITI in delhi remains in Delhi for at least 2 promotions. After getting the ACIT posts, his job becomes All India but remaining in the same station is not difficult. CSS is a lifetime delhi post. You will have to aim for 400+ for getting Delhi ITI and 20-30 less marks for CSS.

@harun : It is dependent on the discretion of the appointing authority.

For English you can go for Common Errors in English by Kiran prakashan and word power made easy. For quant, go for R S Aggarwal.

Gurpreet Seehra 21 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@parvind :

ITI is better in my respect. Enorcement is a tedious job with frequent out of state trasfers. ITIs have good promotions and it has all that can be offered by ED. For example I-T has Investigation wing, the working of which is better than Enforcement. Main work of ED is prevent/catch financial crimes while that of I-T is of Tax Administration in general.

I am currently in my second year of college (pursuing a 3 year degree course in business studies from DU). I am thinking to join TIME institute for CAT preparation. I hope after CAT preparation, i will definitely have an edge over other candidates. What's your opinion? I guess the level of CAT far exceeds as that of SSC CGL.

Hello Sir,

Thanks alot for writing such informative blog.

My name is Navneet Singh, and being an graduate engg. like you, I am working as a Business Analyst in an Chandigarh based IT company from last 3 years. Due to keen interest in Govt. Sector, I am aiming to crack CGL 2013.

And I must tell you that , you are one of my source of inspiration ...after reading your blog, I was filled with tremendous energy to actually start with real preparation.

Most of my queries are clear after reading your replies to others here and I only have 2 quick queries:

1) How much I should aim to score in tier 1 + tier 2 to get Punjab?

2) What should be my top three job preferences for Punjab while applying for CGL 2013? Provided I am an IT guy having similar interests like u.

Brother please do reply my queries. looking forward to hear from you soon.

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Amit Ruia 21 months ago

First of all congratulations for an awesome blog sir :)

More than info of Exam I need a counselling opinion from you on my career path --

I did B.Tech from quite a reputed Engg college from Electronics and got placed in one of best MNC consulting firm. The Pay is decent here as well as I have 90% chances of going US this year end. Job wise I do not appreciate much of it but still I have done well with few firm awards to my name.

Now coming to SSC I gave 1st attempt CGL 2011 and secured 338 (Gen) and got non interview post but I did not attend the skill test. At the same time I had wrote CAT/XAT (95/97 %ile, but missed on sectional cutoffs so no calls).

My doubt is to now I am in a total fix as some say that SSC posts are way low compared to my present job while I feel there it would be more relaxed as to mine current state (avg 14hrs per day work). Considering the ifs and buts I think I go for SSC CGL posts ans take posting in Delhi and then Start preparing for UPSC civil service exam (though I have no prior exposure to this exam) . Sir whats you take on this decision and also Is it possible to prepare for an exam of UPSC level while working in say asst of CSS kind of profile ? the problem with me is that I can not leave job and study.

Sorry for so lengthy explanation above sir and expecting a response form your side.

Thanks and Regards,

Amit

Hi Gurpreet!

I'm working in MNC. Money, no complaints but peace of mind is not there and I want to prepare for UPSC(have appeared for Mains once). So, can you please tell me:

1. Assistant at IB workload/work nature. Is it surely Delhi based or AISL??

2. My aim is to prepare for UPSC, So preferences are assistants only. Please tell me an assistant post with lesser workload. Is CSS better than MEA/IB/Railways for UPSC prep or not?


sajan 20 months ago

sir,

Thank you very much for your reply to my previous question.

1.)If some one did not qualify data entry speed test,then will he be eligible for other preferences i.e if he gave his preference for tax assistants first and then auditor,then will he eligible for auditor post or he will be without any job.

Sir, why i had asked this question is because SSC chief tweeted that if one failed in physical test,he will not be chosen for other preferences.

Is this same is applicable for data entry test also.

2.)Sir,if some one got selected as T.A in particular state,i came to know that he has to attend that states CBDT head office and there they will allocate where he has to work i.e in that state a particular place.

My doubt is if we got a better marks in that state list,then we can choose the place of our own choice or they will only allocate to us where to work .

Sir,please send me a reply and once again thank you very much for your patience in clearing our doubts.

Css Officers 20 months ago

Source:-http://www.babusofindia.com/2011/10/gautam-sanyal-...

Gautam Sanyal is Mamata’s Pulok; shows how a CSS officer can upset IAS power

Gautam Sanyal, a Central secretariat service officer, is the new poster boy of India’s babudom. Till a few months ago, he was the all-powerful OSD to Union railway minister Mamata Banerjee. But after Ms Banerjee became chief minister of West Bengal, Sanyal too took a flight to Kolkata and became the most important officer in Bengal’s power corridors giving heartburns to many IAS officers. The IAS babus could not even believe that a CSS officer at the rank of a joint secretary was actually dominating the IAS. There were reports that the state chief secretary was reluctant to appoint him as principal secretary to CM as he was not so high in the seniority list.

According to reports, Sanyal is now given one year’s extension after his retirement making him probably the first retired bureaucrat to head the chief minister’s office in Kolkata. There were rumours that Sanjay Mitra, former PMO official would move to chief minister’s office as secretary to CM after Sanyal’s retirement. But that did not happen. Sanyal became Mamata’s close confidante when she was the railway minister in during the NDA government. He continued to enjoy her trusts in UPA-II as well. In Rail Bhawan, Sanyal was the bullet train to reach Mamata immediately.

In fact, Gautam Sanyal to Mamata is what Pulok Chatterji is to UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi. Chatterji, for example, is so close to Sonia Gandhi that he was recalled mid-way from his Washington DC posting in World Bank to take over as principal secretary to PM after it was realized that a man close to 10 Janpath should anchor the PMO and bridge the gap between the government and the Congress party. Sanyal is undoubtedly Mamata’s Pulok.

Those who became secretary to West Bengal chief minister in the past included veteran bureaucrats like Bhaskar Ghose (later become information and broadcasting secretary), Subir Dutta (later became Union defence secretary) and SN Menon (became Union commerce secretary).

for books you can refer this page: http://gurpreetseehra.com/2012/05/31/ssc-cgl-prepa...

For securing Interview post you need to score atleast 55-57% marks.

there is no info about the vacancies this year.


Gaurav 20 months ago

Dear Sir ,

This is my 1 attempt in ssc CGL , i filled the form suggested by friend .

What that i know about ssc is what i have read from this your page in last 2 days .

Today i tried a 2012 pre ssc paper , and got 90 marks .

I am studying from a "practice tests by arihant publications".

My english is good (30) , quant is good but speed problem (20) , g.k. is poor (10) , reasoning (20) .

I have zero idea about hiearchy of various posts and have filled them in default way during form filling (from A to Z) .

Having time these days , i can prepare good and have given my time to comp. preparation in past .

1 . How should i start , keeping how many no.s in mind ?

2.Please suggest how much cut off (for pre )may be expected this year , and how much marks will be required for a good post ?

3. Will arihant publication be good to go ?

I am not sure where you can get Detailed weightage. Check out Kiran Publications practce books. They have the breakup at the start.

@gaurav:

GK can be improved but don't expect to improve more than 10 marks. Get Lucent GK book for it. Reasoning can be improved by miles if you give it time. You must aim for 35 in it. Try to ge better by 10 in Quant as well. Arihant one can prove to be useful. Aim for 35 in eng as well.

Cut-off will be less than 90 but it includes non-interview posts. You must aim for 120+

One more thing I am eager to know is that how to obtain good marks in tier 1...I missed the tier 1 cutoff by 2.5 marks last year...It seems somewhat difficult to obtain 120+ in tier 1 mainly due to 2 hours duration of exam and also because my GK is very weak....plz suggest some guidelines to increase my score drastically in tier 1 of SSC-CGL 2013....


Tee 20 months ago

I am very good at GK and English but Math’s has always been my Achilles heel, I have cleared a few exams without even attempting a single math’s question as I did not want to dump much time into Math’s. Then again those exams did not have two tier process, If you could lead me on what should be my approach for Tier-I ? I have started working on math’s also, however I take around half an hour to solve 15 questions, in that case what is the point in reading trigonometry when I will not have the time to attempt them.

@avinash: look, they can conduct a descriptve paper to write something on a topic. My understanding is that if there is any such paper it will be merely for checking whether they are genuine or not thus it will be a qualifying paper. May be a user department (like CSS) has asked SSC to conduct a descriptive paper for ther recruitment just like a typing test for Ta post. Since the things are not clear, nothing can be said. But as the clarification is not given in the notice you can ignore it because it must not be important.

@Tee: Loo, you can't ignore Maths for CGL. It is such an important subject containing 40+% weightage. Go for it with consistent 1 hour daily. You can cover the easy parts of the syllabus first. For approaching Trigono and Geo, only cover the basic concepts and be good at them. Learn to shortlist 20-25 easy questions from a paper of 50. Work on them first. try to raise your level from 15 questions to 25+.

@varun07: You can try watching foreign news channel, subtitled english movies. You may also read Word Power made Easy Wordlist. Reading newspapers editorials is a good way. Before all that you need a good Eng-to-Eng dictionary in hard copy form. it can be a pocket size, I trust oxford and collins..

Remember, your vocab building will be fast if you fall in love with words. Word Power Made Easy will make you fall in love. just don't treat it as a textbook.

how much total marks should be secured to become sure for iti in maharashtra ( tier1+tier2+interview )


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 19 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@amol: You can not expect the respect, although your juniors and some outsiders do give you importance. It happens everywhere. But Inspector is not the same as Police Inspector. It's very calm job, no "Dabbang" nature. It is a very meticulous and technical job. You will have to gain continuous knowledge. Income Tax Act is very vast. In inspector's post, timing is not a problem. Thus, you can have a good life at most of the times but responsibilities are high as you grow up.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 19 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@Eswar: I will appear. But sorry to say, I can't figure out the strategy. I am not able to concentrate on it. I have Income Tax Training, Departmental Exams, Home transfer issues. But not applying is a wastage of opportunity. I will read selctively. India constitution, Modern history, Goegraphy basics, Aptitude are some of the things I will stick to.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 19 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@Tani: This can happen only after joining through the department. but there are certain conditions. Guidelines are issued by the departments. In general case you have to wait for 3 years before transfer. But the specific details can be known from the dept.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

@Tanushree: nomination should happen from 2-6 months. Depends from region to region


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 19 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

I have completed my B.tech in (IT) from Heritage Institute Of Technology kolkata and after that I have joined a company in kolkata after doing a job for 8 months now i get posted in Banglore with in hand salary 15k and HRA but i did not like the job as it does not have a bright future (and also its a client side) and working hour is very high so i could not study for ssc, bank jobs etc....

So My Question is that should I Quit(leave) the job and prepare for these Exams or not or if yes then when should i leave the job now or after some months because my SSC-CGL exam is on 19 may in kolkata .

Gurpreet Seehra 18 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@Priya: 115+ is a decent score. you will have to do better in the Tier-II. Try to aim at 280+ in that. I wish that thing will fall in line for you.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 18 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@amol: 95 is somewhat low for ITI. You should expect to do far better in tier-2 for getting any chance. I would suggest you to aim at around 300 for getting ITI. Realistic target would be to go for Assistant jobs by scoring 260+ in Tier-II.

-Gurpreet

A: No age relaxation as well.

Q3: Is it necessary to reveal that we are working in a CPSE/CPSU

A: Not necessary but if you declare it you can get better marks in Interview. I wonder why would you want to hide it.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 18 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@meet: I would suggest you to stay where you are because it won't be fun to join as auditor in a place away from your home and bleak future prospects. You have an option to switch if ever there is a need to go near to your hometown. Yes, agar tumhari kisi 4600 GP mein selection hoti hai then you can definitely "think". This option is (to me) not worth considering.

About leaving job for preparing: why don't you consider taking a 1-2 months leave without pay. I am suggesting this because doing irreversible things without any need can be regretful.

-Gurpreet


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 18 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 18 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@suraj: why dont' you take a leave of say 2-3 weeks and take the test, if you think that your marks in Tier-1 are fine enough you can think seriously about quitting. I would also like you to start preparing for Bank Exams. Why I don;t want you to hurry up in quitting is that later on you may not get a good post and also repent on lost experience had you not quit. It may feel painful to work long hours and earn low salary but also consider the importance of this experience you will gain in next 1-2 years which will make you eligible for good govt jobs (such as specialist officers in Banks). Also remember, you know your things better that anybody sitting miles away on internet.

Hi Sir,

Thanks a lot for your valuable suggestion, ya its true that i know my things better than any body else but the problem with me is that

When i was doing my B.Tech (IT) , i studied my subjects very well but due to not having 60% marks in 10th and 12th , i was not able to sit most of the good MNC's companies so I have to joined a avg company but now working for 8 months and seeing many disadvantage of IT Industry now I am planning to switch to govt jobs like SSC, Banks etc but due to 6 days work in a week (10 hours everyday) could not get time to study that is why I am thinking of Quiting(leaving) the job, may be it will be difficult to leave the job and prepare for these exams but for a better future I think it will be good........

Please Please Could u tell me your valuable suggestion in my thinking Whether I am right or Not.........

I want to hide because I suppose that interview panel members show

their sympathy to the unemployed to the already employed people.

@KAPIL : I don't suggest you to look for same-to-same questions from any book. Voice and narration are technical topics. There are finite number of problems. If you master them from any book it will be sufficient to score above 80%. i hope I made myself understood.

Thanks

@avneesh: If you get 280+ marks then why do you want to skip interview, you can get Ex insp in Delhi with these marks. Even if you want to skip interview you will have to appear for document verification which will happen at the time of interview. However, scoring 280+ will be tough.

@Prateek : Yes, Group B and C posts are bound by regions. You will be confined to Delhi (In ITI and CE, etc) until you reach Group A.

@umang : There are above 50% chances of clearing. Preparing for Tier-II is necessary at this stage.


Gurpreet Seehra profile image

Gurpreet Seehra 17 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@rajeev :Examiner is a sought after and scarce post. You must be in the Top100 to have a chance for this post. Preventive and Examiner are 2 different posts in the same dept. PO is relatively easier to get. The reason being that PO and CE Insp have a minimum 8 years service condition for being eligible for promotion while Examiner has 3 years. ITI too has 3 yr condition and is in a different dept. Regarding power and money opinions differ.

To choose the best I have most regard for growth prospects and ITI and Examiner are among the top picks.

Hi Gurpreet first of all i really appreciate the fact that u respond to each & every query inspite of such a busy schedule my query is that i have written ssc cgl this year and with the info available i should score between 102-105 ( i guess as there are a lot of ambiguities) in the answers provided i have left my job in april just for this exam i was working with a top 4 hardware company..... which i got thru my mba campus...i took this strong decision due to my inclination towards govt job(officer grade) i have seen the imp they get in day to day life......coming to score how much shd i score to get assistant css delhi in tier2


meashish001 17 months ago

Sir,

How much time does SSC takes in completing the recruitment procedure?Tier 2 exam is scheduled to be held on 1 septemmber,2013 so when can we expect to get over with all the procedure(interview,physical test) and get our confirmed joining letter in hand?

I have done my graduation from B.E(Electronics2012 passout) and my joining date in Infosys is 16th september,2013 .I am very much interested in SSC and i am not eager to join IT sector..Should i quit infosys if i am getting 250+(obc category) score in tire2(expecting 110 in tier1) bcoz it would be very difficult for me to leave the company once i enter into a bond aggrement due to heavy bond compensation money.

Can i somehow extend my joining date?Infosys doesn' entertain personal reason for joining date extension and they also do a thorough crosscheck of medical reasons given.Plzz help me sir....

Gurpreet Seehra 16 months ago from Chandigarh, India Hub Author

@meashish001: You can ask for extension but the new joining date will depend on when they want to give it. Since your papers will be over by the time you join, I will suggest you to join the company as the CGL joinings will take some time. You will not get joining before mid-2014. There also you can sk for extension if need be. Another alternative is to join Infy, enjoy the best days there and fail in the training. This is a bit weird but it can be useful to avoid bond even if you join the company.

P.S. Infy training life was one of the best time of of my life. It may not be a good idea to skip it.

Tee 16 months ago

Hi , I am an HR Consultant and due to the nature of my work my business hours are usually restricted to just 4-5 hours a day, that too five days a week and I make around 35k per month. I got attracted to ITI and Excise profiles after my cousin brother cleared one and all the accolades not to mention the huge respect he received made me envious, hence I appeared for the IB,FCI,SSC-tier 1 and so far I have cleared or supposed to clear all the examinations with good enough marks but this time around I appeared for UPSC CSE and to my surprise I am expected to score around 240 that too without studying before exam as I was expecting myself to fail.. and now my parents are insisting me to give up the preparation for SSC and rather prepare for UPSC, I am able to take out 6-7 hours a day so far, yet my friends are telling me that it won't it be enough (Frnds they can never cheer u up!!! ha ha) It is not that that I am totally alien to General Knowledge subjects , I have good knowledge of basics yet I need someone to tell me that it can be done in 6 months because it is very hard to fight when u feel that u cannot win. --Your thoughts..

Hi Gurpreet

I m ex-s candidate and likely to get 125 in tier I. I m sure i will make it to ITI in maharashtra. i want to know the work culture and work pressure in income tax. Can an individual not much interested in corrupt practices sustain? Secondly, I m getting a job as a bank clerk with gross salary about 41 thousand due to pay protection and there are bright chances of being promoted as a po, may be after 2-3 years. But if i join i m no more in ex-s cat. I can get only age relaxation. What should i do? should i join sbi as a clerk or wait for ssc to become ITI.

112 is decent enough. try to get better in next round. I think 260 should do.

@Karthictb: it is heartening to see that you take inspiration from me. I would like to assure you that it is possible to do good in ssc with average maths skills. Spring 50-60perc in maths is decent enough. But it is important to be very good in english in that case. There is no shortcut to excel in maths in limited time. However in any circumstances it is possible to improve 20-25perc by practice. Just concentrate on that. You would need need to ask at around 450/700for iti and 420+ for ce. Best of luck.

@n4nagendra: you will have to wait for three years before seeking transfer. Given your circumstances I would ask you to refrain from joining as ta. At least go for 4200 grade party posts. Work pressure and dissatisfaction is high at this post.

Hi Gurpreet

I appreciate your work. You are really doing a felicitous job for young guns of India.

I am a S/W Engineer in a MNC in NCR and getting around 50000 monthly.

But frankly I did not like the job. No freedom, No respect, No status etc.

I wanted to move to Government Sector through SSC CGL, and aiming for ITI post .

Would you please tell me about nature of ITI post in terms of kind of work, Money(through all sources), status etc.

I hope you will understand the dejection of an S/W Engineer since you too were a S/W Engineer.

It is a tough decision for me, please enlighten me.

Thanks
