  • Firstly I don't suggest you opt for SSC CGL examination which caters for the recruitment of Accountants/UDC/Auditors etc., having done your B Tech in CSE. Why don't you try for other options with IT companies and PSUs?

    Coming to your point of doubt as to how to prepare for the Mathematics paper in the SSC CGL examination. It should not be a difficult task for you being a graduate in Engineering and just you have practice the papers published in the competitive magazine like CSR and Competition Master. The syllabus was comprehensively mentioned in the response by Raja and no need to repeat again. The question forms part of Quantitative aptitude test in the Preliminary and mains examination and just go through the solved papers. it will surely help you. Speed and accuracy are the important elements for any competitive examination.


  • As you are a student from Engineering stream it is not a very tough job for you. All that you need is a proper planning.
    First of all, you need to know the exact syllabus of this particular exam and prepare according to them. In the prelims and Mains you have to answer MCQ type questions, but for that, you have to solve them quickly.
    You can follow some authentic text books of the concerned syllabus. You can follow some quicker math techniques to solve them fast.
    Follow some magazines like CSR which will help you a lot for this exam. Regular practising previous year papers or some mock papers will help you a lot for your upcoming CGL exam.

  • There are a lot of apps and websites available for such practices, daily practice a certain number of questions. It is good that you know your weak point. Keep practising, it will lead you to the perfection.
    I would want to suggest an Android application here named Gradeup, it's really good for practice and editors of this app are really hard working, they avail daily affairs and tips to boost your strength in each area of the exam. It gives a social media type environment. You can ask questions and get solutions, you can also help others. And the best thing this is absolutely free, just require an internet connection.
