After a long 3-year wait, you have finally been allotted your wish and will be appearing for this examination. All the excitement and hard work have paid off. It is now time to focus on preparation of previous year SSC GD question paper and settle into a daily routine that will lead up to your big day.
But wait! There is a small but crucial item on your to-do list that has been left untouched even though it is sitting right in front of you. You know, the one that will no doubt give you the edge you need over your peers: The old question paper of SSC GD 2011.
It’s a daunting task, isn’t it?
There are 15 questions from each subject in the paper and we are only allowed to choose eight out of those. That’s right, a measly eight. To add to this, the syllabus has changed drastically over the years. It is not so obvious which topics will be asked in the exam. So where do we begin?
That’s what this article is all about.
If you haven’t done the paper before, be aware that the code on the left-hand side of each question is already filled with a few letters. You will therefore need to crack it alongside your answer so that you can get both correct and only when you want.
The first thing we will do is study what the paper actually looks like. In order to explain what I mean, let me talk about how the paper has changed over the years.
As you continue to look at the previous year SSC GD question paper, you will notice that each section is filled with a number of different questions. Each question is labeled alphabetically. You will also see that there are five columns numbered 1 to 5 on the left-hand side of the question paper. These numbers correspond to certain mathematical formulas on the right-hand side of each question. For instance, a question asks you to find the square root of a number. In order to answer this, you need to fill in the formula on the right-hand side of the question. All you need is your answer and enough knowledge of mathematics to remember what each formula means and how it relates to your answer.
Now let’s look closer at those formulas.
They all relate to special triangles put together with certain numbers, which is what we need for our answers.
Another step to solving these questions is to crack their codes. Keeping the columns in mind, we can double-check that our answers are correct by using them to fill in the formulas. For your ease of use, I have already filled in the codes for you and written down what they stand for on a separate piece of paper. You can use this as a cheat sheet while you fill in the answers but make sure you are familiar with how they work. The more you practice this, the easier it will get. These codes will be crucial when you take the exam.
As we progress through this article, we shall study how each section in the question paper changed over the years. And what appears on the right-hand side of each question. Let’s start with History:
History section was asked in all Indian History exams: both SSC and IAS. The current year’s actual written exam is a little different from that of previous years but this section is almost the same.
Here is what History section in the question paper looks like:
Human Rights, Philosophy and Indian Politics were asked in all exams of Indian History IAS, SSC and sometime UPSC. It’s the one common section. GK is also similar but we will cover it in our next article.
Here is what Human Rights, Philosophy and Indian Politics section in the question paper looks like:
After taking this test for two years, I had finally cracked this with over 80% accuracy on my first attempt.
You can use these codes as a way to check if your answers are correct or not. You will find that you get the same results if you decide to attempt the code or not. By so doing, you can keep your sanity intact by knowing whether you are right or wrong without wasting time in challenging yourself with codes.
If you take the Human Rights, Philosophy, and Indian Politics paper as an example, take note of some key information from the question paper:
- The number of columns in the question paper
- The column that contains the formulas for each question
- The formula used to solve each question
