The minimum educational qualification required is of grade 10 and the limit is graduation. The least age required is 18 years and the candidate should be no older than 27 (though reserved candidates are relaxed by a few more years with the limit being 32)

Some preparation tips on how to get proficient for the SSC CGL exam.

It’s rather important to create a time table while studying.

Every question is not possible to attempt in any scenario, and the sections should be attempted according to the known answers first rather than sequentially.

Go through previous year question papers to get thorough knowledge of the exam and get an insight about your calibre as well

Set your exam date reminder to work according to the days left and approach the exam confidently

While studying General Awareness, stick to Indian History, World Geography, Economy and Politics

Follow this specific order : Science>> Polity>> History>> Geography>> Economy>> Miscellaneous

These were the focal guidelines to help you work up for the SSC CGL exam.

Best wishes. J
