Introduction

  • SSC CGL 2013 was to be held on 14th and 21st April.
  • But 14th April exam was cancelled. Now that exam will be held on 19th 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 21st 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.

Maths

type subtype KP PJ
Basic BOSMAS 1 0

Total 50 50
  • SSC has continue the trend of last year (=less importance to conventional questions from profit-loss, time-speed, mensuration etc.) and more emphasis on geometry (theory), Trigonometry and algebra
  • Roughly 2/3rd 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.

Reasoning

  • Sitting arrangement (case containing 3-5 question) =absent.
  • Otherwise question pattern/difficulty level similar to previous years.

General Awareness / GA-GK

analysis_SSC CGL 2013 GA distribution

  • 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.
Topic Sub topics no. of Questions
Static economy 4
Polity 3
History_ancient 1
History_modern 6

Crap Books 1

In PJ and KP series question papers, the GA and English questions were same (only sequence was changed) hence I’ve given only single column for no. of questions.

English

vocab synonym, Antonym 6
idioms and phrases 5

Not much to say, follows the usual pattern / difficulty level of previous years.

  4. Anita sarkar says:

    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.

        i read smwhere in the instructions only.

      • DALLU says:

        attestation required only if ur photo is not clear in admit card…..otherwise take an ideproof(original) with u to show it to examiner….Although in the hall ticket its written u have to tAKe 4 photos….only 1 is required to stick in the examiners admit card copy

  22. CHANDER PRAKKASH SHARMA says:

    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!!!

    • HK says:

      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)*(secA-tanA)

      LHS = 1

      we get (secA-tanA) = 1/(root5 + 2)

      multiply and divide RHS by root5 – 2 (conjugate)
      (secA-tanA) = 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.

    • ambuj says:

      @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

  30. MR.TRUE MAN says:

    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

  37. Shalini says:

    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.

    • kri says:

      @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.

      • Shalini says:

        @kri, m saying its unfair coz the people who are pushing for the re-examination 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 tier-2 if the exam doesnt get cancelled..

  38. Shalini says:

    Mrunal Sir,

    Is there any possibility of exam getting cancelled or rescheduled? It wud be very unfair of they do so, future of many people is at stake.

    sir plz radian measure kaise calculate karte hai bata dijiye.and science k applications day to day lihe ka ho sake to upload kijiye.

  44. shivani says:

    SIR PLZ GUIDE HOW TO CALCULATE RADIAN MEASURE.N IF POSSIBLE DO UPDATE SOME APPLICATIONS OF SCIENCE RELATED TO DAY TO DAY LIFE.

    • HK says:

      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..
