Introduction
 SSC CGL 2013 was to be held on 14^{th} and 21^{st} April.
 But 14^{th} April exam was cancelled. Now that exam will be held on 19^{th} May 2013. (Hence it is no longer conflicting with SBI PO exam date.) This is not a rumor. This is given on SSC’s Northern Region website click me
 This article contains analysis based on two papers of SSC CGL 2013, held on 21^{st} April (KP series and PJ series) click me to download those papersets.
 Download links for today’s question papers are given in the appendix of this article.

 SSC has continue the trend of last year (=less importance to conventional questions from profitloss, timespeed, mensuration etc.) and more emphasis on geometry (theory), Trigonometry and algebra
 Roughly 2/3^{rd} of the Maths questions are from Geometry, trigonometry, algebra and Data interpretation (DI) only.
 Although SSC chief remained kept his twitter promise: trigonometry and geometry portion bit easier than last time’s and most of the trigonometry questions could be solved effortlessly by the [Trigonometry] tricks explained on www.Mrunal.org/aptitude
 Usually DI portion contained only one “case” and 5 questions. This time SSC has given multiple DI cases.

 Compared to earlier years, SSC increased the number of nonverbal questions.
 Sitting arrangement (case containing 35 question) =absent.
 Otherwise question pattern/difficulty level similar to previous years.
General Awareness / GAGK
 As usual, GA section was broadly made up of three parts: Static, Science and Crap.
 The message / lesson is clear: when it comes to the GA portion of SSC, don’t waste time chasing trivial current affairs. Because static (polity, history etc.) and science, is where your focus should be.

Dear Titi,
You have an interesting name! :) ..
Regarding your question — Use
http://www.lettercount.com/ or http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/charcount.shtml
To count how many “Key Depressions” you have in say 1020 minutes. Even “space” bar is counted as character. A normal line contains about 90 character in word – Times New Roman and size 10.
A free advice — chill, relax and enjoy life a bit otherwise you’ll be a Grandma before you know it :P .. Live in the moment..
Best of luck :)

Hi AS,
One doubt regarding selection of post.
Suppose a candidate selected post pref as ABCDEFG…..
He cleared all the stages of Exam with 400 marks…Whether the candidate gets only post codeA or next preference post code.
And another candidate scored 380 marks, he selected post pref as CDEFABG…Whether he gets only post codeC or next preference post code.
Please clarify my doubt.
Regards,
Amarjit
Hey friends, please let me know is any sectional cut off there in nicl ao 2013 exam… as advertisement me toh kahin nahi mention he asa… and what can be the cut off for the same for sc category just assumption.
@Amarjit
Suppose x has preferences ABCDEF
y has CDEFAG
Allocation takes place like this:
For x, marks=400. Now they check if some vacancy is available in any of the states opted by x for post A. If yes, he gets post A in first available slot. Else move to B,…C,…D and so on till all options are exhausted.
For y, the process starts with post C.
@AS
Thanks for the info
No idea about that paper.

Yet to find even a single candidate who is taking that exam :D
Hey, dont taunt me .. I might live upto the challenge :P
How have you been?? Surprisingly TOO QUIET… I wondered if ASpedia servers were down :D hehehhehehe
Challenge? Not much, because you are not having centre in Dehradun or Jaipur :P
Servers show limited activity when clients are sleeping!
ohh.. really what makes you think, I would want to get out of the sanctity of my home, relinquish the comfort and luxury – just to wander out in the sun and to give a STUPID, useless exam (headbang)…. So, its a HERCULEAN task for me!!!
On a different note – what is your knowhow about Cars? My parents are planning on gifting me a sedan coming B’Day – but its stupid Sunny – darn slow car that takes 13 seconds to hit 100!!! But others arent that fuel efficient.. Come on India — what happened to that fuel efficiency bill, isnt that supposed to save billions in exchange as compared to stupid advisory to turn off the engine on red lights!! And FOR GOD sake they should limit their lips on such frivolous ideas… DO they ever get stuck on a red light? Bozos always using the RED BEACON to avert such nuisance!! Everytime you waste an ephemeral second on a Red Light — you can go deaf from the LOUD horns HONKING and everybody cussing for you to be a moron and so on (heheh I rhymed here)…. I sometimes wonder if they ask Kindergarten students for such “ingenious” solutions. I mean really? Closing down petrol pumps will save fuel — like our cars will run on water or go on diet as poor people do in absence of dinner. wont that actually waste time, precious productive office hours wasted in queuing up at gas stations!!! Imagine being late for a board meeting cause your chauffeur wasn’t able to fuel up the car at night! How would that sound to a foreign client…..
Hey, why my posts are awaiting moderation by author??
I don’t think normal comments are moderated here! Never experience something like that, published instantly.
@Neena ohk. All the best for other two papers :)
For me, Thelastweekbeforeexam syndrome has already set in. So my mind has entered hibernation state. Maybe will reactivate after reaching Jaipur :D
Sorry, no ideas about the other topic.
the comments awaited the sanction for a WHOLE day :P
maybe some limit on number of posts by a user might have took me for some spammer :D
Maybe because you are making very few posts these days :P
