To gain an edge over your competition, it is only wise to start preparing early.

Especially for those topics that have a vast syllabus and will take time to master. So,

while waiting for the SSC CGL 2020, you can start your preparation

because even a small step every day will contribute immensely to your success in

the long run. The topics discussed today are from the English section as it takes a lot

of time to get accustomed to the language if you are not familiar with it.

Here we are going to discuss the two topics which take some time to master.

One-word substitution: This topic is asked in almost all the competitive examinations

like SSC CGL, CHSL, IBPS, SBI, NABARD, RRB, RBI,Stenographer and others

so its importance cannot be undermined.

This is asked in both tier 1 and tier 2 of

SSC which makes it all the more important. The main issue that most candidates

face in this topic is that there so many words and it seems impossible to learn all of

them. The fact is that you don't have to learn all the words.

There are so many

sources online that provide an extensive list of commonly asked words and words

that are expected to be asked. But simply learning them wont be that effective

unless you understand their application in a sentence. For that, you have to read a

lot and when you come across a word you have already learned, it will stick to your

memory. Another way is to attempt quizzes on one-word substitution for SSC-CGL2020 .

It will not only help you in retaining what you have learned but the more you practice,

the more confident you will get.

Sentence Correction: In this topic, you have to find the error in a part of the sentence

and choose the correct alternative from the given options. This topic tests your

understanding of grammar and you need to have a stronghold on the basics to ace

this topic. Every word in the English language can be categorized into eight parts

which are nouns (name, place, things or ideas), pronouns (he, she, we, etc), verbs

(walking, swimming, eating), adjectives (caring, beautiful, generous), adverbs (very,

extremely, loudly), prepositions (in, on ,for), conjunctions (and, but, because), and

interjections (phew, wow). A complete sentence contains a subject (someone or

something) and a verb (action) and there are certain rules that you should remember

which will help in sentence correction. Once you are familiar with all the rules, you

can begin doing exercises and remember to give this topic time every day. Again,

you need to practice this section consistently to gain mastery of it.

Practice mock tests and previous year exam papers.

There are a lot of subscription-

based institutions providing quality SSC online tests. Attempt as many as you can

and then analyse them to understand which topics are strong and which are weak

and allocate time to those topics accordingly.

All the best!
