SSC CGL 2017 Exam Paper Analysis

SSC CGL 2017 Exam Paper Analysis

SSC CGL 2017 Exam started a few days ago (on 5th August). Based on discussions with students who appeared in the exam, we have analyzed the SSC CGL 2017 exam paper and the marked pattern changes from last year.

There were three main exam sections that are evaluated in every SSC CGL Exam – Reasoning Ability, English Proficiency, and Numerical Aptitude. With a total of 100 questions, each correctly answered question fetched 2 marks and 0.5 marks is deducted for an incorrect answer.

This analysis is based on all shifts conducted till date and will give you an overarching view of the exam

Reasoning section was moderate and 20-23 questions could be attempted out of 25 questions.

Numerical Aptitude section was difficult and 16-19 questions could be attempted out of 25 questions. There were lots of calculations required.

English section was moderate and 17-20 questions could be attempted out of 25 questions. There were lots of calculations required.
