          Hi. Do you want to appear in 2017 cgl or want to start preparing for next year?

            I want to prepare for the same.. I do have an idea about the xam pattern swati…could u plzz help in this.?

          2. Swati

            Okay. First, to get a complete idea about the exam, and type of questions asked in it, you go through all shift papers of cgl 2016 and find out your weak areas. The number of questions have been reduced but the pattern more or less remains the same. All you need to do is practice the same pattern of questions. You can buy any previous years papers book of SSC and practice. We will also keep providing questions from English and GK section to help you prepare for the upcoming exam.

          3. Swati

            Also, you need to manage time. This is important to note that 2016 cgl provided 75 minutes to complete 100 questions. This time it will be 60 minutes. So prepare and practice accordingly
