Brief Information: SSC CGL preparation strategy for general awareness requires an approach that is different from the one required for other sections. In this article, we will discuss the strategy for the preparation of important schemes, portfolios, and people in news from the general awareness section.

Important Schemes

The fact that multiple questions are asked from this topic makes it the most important part of general awareness for SSC CGL 2020, bank and railways exam. The government launches many schemes for the development and growth of the country and the citizens. So, it is important to keep yourself updated about the latest schemes and initiatives.

-Read newspaper or monthly current affairs magazine regularly and note down information about any new scheme launched by the government.

  1. Make notes on A4 size sheets as it is very convenient to add or update new information about any scheme.
  2. Divide your notes into different sections according to the field that the scheme or initiative caters to. For example, make different categories like farmers and rural development schemes, youth development scheme, girl child scheme, etc, and write down the related schemes under these categories. This will not only make your notes well organized but will also help in quick revision.

The questions in the exam can be asked like this-

Question: Which scheme aims to double the income of farmers by the end of 2022?

(a)Ayushman Bharat

(b)Operation Green

(c)Pradhan Mantri Kisan SAMPADA Yojana

The answer is (b) Operation Green.


Some government posts are created under the Constitution of India and the candidate is required to remember the qualifications, functions, powers, duties, appointment and removal procedure of these posts. The posts included are Attorney General of India, Advocate General of India, Comptroller and Auditor General of India and special officers for linguistic minorities. You also need to look out for some additional information regarding these posts that you will come by in the newspaper or by attempting quizzes of this topic.

The best thing about this topic is that the information is fixed and rarely changes which makes it easier to remember all the facts. You just need to note them down or take a print out and keep revising them regularly.
