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.

Kindly publish the keys in ur website.S.S.C. will take a huge time to publish it. Because the second phase of tier 1 is to b held on 19th May. Besides the present chairman seems to b indifferent to take any appropriate and prompt action.Perhaps THOSE GOOD OLD DAYS OF SSC ARE GONE.

U may be selected to appear in TierII

thank u for question paper
Thanks a lot sir.
Q.No.140 of booklet Series”333 PK 4″
GIVEN:sec (theta)+tan (theta) =[2+{sqrt (5)} ],
then find: sin (theta)+cos (theta) is?
options are:
a–> 3/[sqrt(5)]
b–> sqrt(5)
c–> 7/[sqrt(5)]
d–>1/[sqrt(5)]
Kindly give the answer with the method or full solution step by step.Thanks!!!
let theta = A (as i cant type it here)
we have
secA + tanA = root5 + 2 ————– (1)
multiply both sides by secA – tanA, we get
sec^2A – tan^2A = (root5 + 2)*(secAtanA)
LHS = 1
we get (secAtanA) = 1/(root5 + 2)
multiply and divide RHS by root5 – 2 (conjugate)
(secAtanA) = root5 – 2 ——————– (2)
from 1 & 2 we get
secA = root5 and tanA = 2 so sinA = 2/root5 and cosA = 1/ root5 so sinA + cosA = 3/root5 option A.
@chandar…
@=theta and ?=sqrt
sec@+tan@=2+(?5);
sqrt(1+tan2@)+tan@=2+?5; as 1+tan2@=sec2@
now compare rational and irrational part
tan@=2 and sqrt(1+tan2@)=sqrt5=sec@
now see your question
sin@+cos@ can be written as
(sin@+cos@)/cos@/1/cos@
which equals
(tan@+1)/sec@
now put the values of tan@=2 and sec@=?5
gives ans=3/?5=a
Mrunal Sir will ssc conduct reexam as the paper was leaked. source:http://www.indianexpress.com/news/coparrestedforsscpaperleaktoppedsiexamtwomonthsago/1106342/1
I have got selected in CSS last year…Me getting above 140 …is there a chance of paper getting cancelled due to the SSC CGL paper leak as reported in news ??
congos on having got selected to css.
how did u feel this years paper compared to last yr..?? getting 140 was it easier this time??? (i am getting around 130)
thanks buddy….I was preparing for IAS mains …took ssc mains in between for delhi posting…
Yes I found this year’s paper w as comparatively easier…I did goof up in time management…I think this this year’s highest marks would be higher than last year’s 151.
cool.. even i wrote iasmains, but dint get the intv call…hope u got…
But bro, if u r already in CSS y r u writing SSC again???? trying for examiner/IT inspctr? is it really that better???
Sadly No….taking it this year too… Central Secretariat was taken for IAS prep as it has govt office work and posting only in delhi…This year taking it as a backup …just in case :)

SSC DISCRIMINATE WITH MORNING & EVENING BATCHES…….MORNING BATCH–VERY EASY (CAN SCORE ABOVE 130 EASILY)….AND FOR EVENING BATCH–TOUGH(CAN’T SCORE ABOVE 100 EASILY).SSC DOES’T KNOW HOW TO BALANCE THE PAPER. AND IT IS HUGE DISCRIMINATION B/W CANDIDATES OF 21 APRIL AND 19 MAY. THEY WILL KNOW ABOUT SSC’S APPROACH TOWARDS THIS YEAR’S CGL IN ADVANCE AND GOT ANOTHER 1 MONTH FOR BETTER PREPARATION THAN 21 MAY CANDIDATES.THIS IS BLUNDER.THIS IS NOT JUSTIFIED.SOME CANDIDATES GOT MORE TIME THAN OTHERS FOR SAME EXAM & THEY WILL SCORE BETTER THAN 21 MAY CANDIDATES.

mrunal sir
will the tier 1 exam be held again??
news of paper leak on 21 april is there in leading newspapers
Mrunal Sir,
Thank you for your guidance throughout every examination. As there is a news of SSC CGL (21st april) being leaked, is there any chance of the exam getting cancelled? It wud be very unfair if they do so, future of many people is at stake.
@shalini
i scored around 110 plus too. if the paper is leaked and some people got an undue advantage of it then the exam has to be cancelled bcoz i can score 110 again n u can also score much more . Dont say its not fair to reschedule unless u got the leaked paper n u took advantage of it. i am not accusing u but i am only saying its fair to every1 if they reschedule the exam.
@kri, m saying its unfair coz the people who are pushing for the reexamination are MOSTLY those who didnt fare well and they are moreover expecting a high cutoff this time. Moreover the ssc chief has tweeted that such isolated cases do not lead to cancellation of the exam. Rest, let the commission decide :) All the best for tier2 if the exam doesnt get cancelled..

sir plz radian measure kaise calculate karte hai bata dijiye.and science k applications day to day lihe ka ho sake to upload kijiye.
SIR PLZ GUIDE HOW TO CALCULATE RADIAN MEASURE.N IF POSSIBLE DO UPDATE SOME APPLICATIONS OF SCIENCE RELATED TO DAY TO DAY LIFE.
180 degrees of angle = PI radians..
1 degree has 60 minutes and 1 minute has 60 seconds..
its a matter of convenience as 2*Pi is an arc length covered by circle of unit radius in 360 degrees.
radian is SI unit..
like 45 degrees = 45 *pi/180 = pi/4 radians
pi/10 radians = pi* 180/pi = 18 degrees..
18.75 degrees = 18 deg + .75 deg = 18 deg + .75*60 min = 18 deg 45 mins..
Q. Calculate radian measure of angle measuring 27 degrees 15 mins 45 seconds..
Sir Kindly tell me that how many nos of question papers was given to the candidates. for ssc cgl2013 TierI held on 21.04.2013
