How to crack SSC Stenographer in first attempt ?

Following are some points by which you can surely crack your exam -

  • The most common error some candidates make in this section is assuming things. For example, in questions on the Blood Relationship topic, it is not always stated whether A is male or female, but in a hurry, candidates assume it and thus answer the question incorrectly.
  • Due to time constraints, candidates must avoid making silly mistakes like not reading the questions properly. For example, in some questions, the questioner may ask, "Which of the following does NOT support this statement?" Some candidates tend to skip the word NOT and thus mark the incorrect answer.
  • General Intelligence and Reasoning are all about conceptual learning, practise, and speed improvement. When a candidate grasps a particular concept, the only thing that remains is practise to master that concept. Every day, set aside some time to practise reasoning questions.
