Tier I pattern
1. English
2. GK
3. Reasoning,General Intelligence
4. Quantitative Aptitude 

Staff Selection Commission or simply SSC is an Indian organization to recruit staff for various posts in the various Ministries and Departments of the Government of India and in Subordinate Offices. Staff Secondary Commission conducting 14 to 15 examinations every year for recruitment of Staff in various department of ministry these exams are as like FCI, SI, Clerk, LDC, CGL, DEO and many more.

Every year SSC conducts different exams, but most popular one is SSC Combined Graduate Level Exam or simply SSC CGL. Through SSC CGL they recruit Group B and Group C posts, selected candidates gets jobs in various departments are like Income Tax (I.T), Custom and Central Excise, Vigilance commission, Enforcement Directorate, Intelligence bureau, Central bureau of investigation (CBI), comptroller auditor general (CAG)&so on.

To crack this exam first of all you have to make strategy for study, you should have good study material in which you can easily understand each and every topic. Time management is must to get this opportunity because in this exam you will get different section to complete within a time, but if you will not understand the time cost then you cant success. There are negative marking in each section so do not be confused at all to solve tricky and confusing questions as it only the wasting of time.

SSC CGL will conduct two level exams
1. Tier I 2. Tier II
Exam Pattern for Tier 1, total you will get 120 minutes for 200 questions. Four sections each with 50 questions and 50 marks. It doesnt have any sectional cut off, like in Bank exams. Negative marking 0.25 marks. 
Those who qualify in the Tier-I, have to appear for Tier-II. But unlike the UPSC mains, the SSC tier-II doesnt have descriptive paper. You just have to face multiple choices Questions (MCQ).
Advantage of solving previous papers
1. Trains Your Brain For Negative Marking
2. Improves Your Speed
GK (Only for Tier I)
Read NCERT or Telugu academy books. Lucent GK is good takes little time to read all the topics. Read newspapers. Revise minimum three times, practice a few old papers. General awareness shouldnt give much trouble.
English (Tier I and Tier II)
In the SSC exam, you have to face English at two stages, in tier 1 (50 marks) and in tier 2 (200 marks). Divide it into two parts 
1. Grammar
2. Vocabulary
In the SSC exam, you have to face English grammar in following areas, sentence correction, sentence improvement, and active passive voice, direct and indirect speech&etc. First of all you need to know the grammar rules. But you dont need to know all grammar rules.

Each of the boys are passed (wrong) 
Each of the boys is passed (right) 
Your task = first go through your grammar book, and note down such rules with example statements, in your note book. Revise these rules often (along with example sentences). Grammar rules are like maths. Universal valid.

Example: Independence Day is celebrated on 15th august.
Independence Day is celebrated on August 15th, among these two statements which is correct one?
This kind of questions can answered simply if we have habit of reading newspapers.
Vocabulary is of very importance in SSC exam because of following reasons, 
1. You can read the passage faster, if your vocabulary is good, else youll have to pause and think.
2. In comprehension passages, some questions are in the format of what is the meaning of ABC word in the sentence
Books for grammar any school grammar book and for vocabulary word power made easy book is a good and read English newspaper. For practice R.S.Agarwal objective English book is recommended. Once this is done, try to solve as many practice questions as you can.

Reasoning, General Intelligence (Tier I)
Since Reasoning/ General Intelligence topic doesnt have much theory, the only way to approach it= practice maximum number of questions at home from your reasoning book. So you want to use one reasoning book that is universally applicable to all such exams it is A Modern Approach to Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning by R.S Agarwal

Quantitative Aptitude (Tier I and Tier I I)
Dont feel low that I am from science background and all. Maths is not difficult. All it requires is concept clarity + lot of practice. Your task is to cover one topic at a time, first get conceptual-clarity and then solve maximum questions at home.
The conventional questions from ratio-proportion, basic maths, time-speed-work are asked for namesake only. Otherwise, Out of 50 Maths questions in tier-I, almost 30 questions are from just Geometry + Trigonometry + Percentages + Algebra.
Books for this section, quantitative Aptitude by R.S.Agarwal is good but has some issues, The way SSC-CGL question pattern is transforming, R.S.Agarwals book on Quantitative aptitude, is just not up to the mark to match this changing environment. Some of the topics like Geometry and trigonometry&etc. are not there. There are some other books are available but which are very useful for CAT exam not for SSC level. For missing topics in RS Agarwal one has to go through NCERT books.Data interpretation is also important.

1. Solve previous year question papers as much as you guys can do
2. Make practice of quantitative aptitude section
3. Practice of English grammar daily
4. Make revision constantly
5. Make plan according to syllabus
6. Buy some good books for study
7. Try to know the simple tricks as it will not consume the time
These SSC jobs are very good and especially Group B jobs are not less than even Group-1 jobs, I am here to aware you about this prestigious jobs, so what I suggest you is just try SSC. Make a plan you will defiantly get the job. 

Tier II pattern 
1. Paper I Quant 200 marks 
100 questions 2 hours 
2. Paper II English 200 marks 
200 questions 2 hours
