# 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.

# Maths

 type subtype KP PJ Basic BOSMAS 1 0 Square root 1 1 Number theory, LCM, HCF, remainder 0 2 algebra linear equation 1 1 quadratic equation 6 6 % profit loss interest rate etc. 7 6 average, ratio average 2 2 ratio 1 2 STD time and speed (Boat, railway etc.) 2 2 time and work (pipe cisterns etc.) 3 3 Geometry Geometry_theory 8 8 Mensuration (Area, volume, perimeter) 3 4 Coordinate geometry 1 0 Trigonometry height-distance 1 1 complimentary angles 2 1 equation /formula based 3 4 misc 1 0 DI Bar, pie, line, table 7 7 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

 topic Subtype KP PJ series analogy 3 8 odd pair 4 5 missing in series 15 8 dictionary based test 3 3 subtotal 25 24 coding coding-decoding and matrix 4 3 maths symbol based ops 2 4 subtotal 6 7 arrangement direction based tests 2 4 arrangement (weight/height wise) 1 1 subtotal 3 5 logic Statement-conclusion 1 1 syllogism 1 1 subtotal 2 2 Non-Verbal non verbal 11 8 Misc misc (Venn Diagrams, TSW etc) 3 4 total 50 50
• Compared to earlier years, SSC increased the number of non-verbal questions.
• Sitting arrangement (case containing 3-5 question) =absent.
• Otherwise question pattern/difficulty level similar to previous years.

# General Awareness / GA-GK

• 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 Geography 4 Environment biodiversity 4 Subtotal 22 Science physics 4 chemistry 4 biology 8 Computer,IT 2 Subtotal 18 Crap Books 1 Persons in News 6 Misc. 3 Subtotal 10 Total 50

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

 type Question no. of Questions vocab synonym, Antonym 6 idioms and phrases 5 word substitution 7 spelling 2 RC Passages (2) 10 grammar sentence correction 5 sentence improvement 10 fill in the blanks 5 Total 50

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

• Anita sarkar

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.

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

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

@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@
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

• MR.TRUE MAN

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

• Shalini

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

@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

@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..

• Shalini

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.

• shivani

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

• HK

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.

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..
