Habits to Avoid while preparing for SSC GD Exam

  1. Mugging Up-  The Syllabus of the GD exam is very vast and one needs to understand the concepts at a depth. Many times it has been observed that aspirants simply tend to memorize the facts and figures and waste a lot of time and effort. This is a wrong approach to your preparation. You must be knowing that questions asked are often indirect ones and if you do not do an in-depth analysis of the topics, you might not be able to answer in the exam.
  2. Purchasing unwanted study material- It is advisable that you should not fall into the trap of buying unnecessary study material for your preparation. There are many sources available in the market. But you don’t have to refer to all of them. For a single topic, you must refer to a single source or a maximum of two sources. The idea is to finish the syllabus and leave time to revise and recollect what is studied. 
  3. Being Negative- It is very important to stay positive during the entire course of your preparation. You should not let a single negative thought stop you from your work. You should always remember what is the reason you want to ace the GD exam and always keep yourself motivated.
  4. Unworthy Internet surfing – Books, of course, are indispensable but the internet is the need of the hour. Using the internet for studies is a good idea but it might give you wrong pieces of information as well. Therefore, you need to be careful while using the internet. Make sure you are visiting only worthy websites and do not end up wasting time surfing the internet.
  5. Not giving revision – What is important during the last time is that you gather your thoughts, stay calm, and remain collected when you need it the most. The relevant material available around you that you have referred to over the past year or so try to revise the same sources again and again. Revision and more revision brings greater confidence and instils a much greater sense of hope that you can emerge successful in this examination.
  6. Procrastinating- Most important of all and the biggest problem of all the candidates preparing for competitive exams. Procrastination is a curse. If you are preparing for SSC General duty examination, you should always remember that you have limited time and a lot of topics to be covered. Thus, whatever is necessary to be done, do it then itself rather than procrastinating. It’s a toxic habit that eats us away.

Honestly, your real competition is with yourself. You should not get intimidated and enter the race fearlessly but work hard and be positive. If you really want to ace the examination then keep the above mentioned pointers in mind and avoid making these mistakes to outdo your competitors. 

Candidates preparing for any other SSC exams like SSC CHSL, SSC CGL, etc, must keep track of the SSC Admit Card page since the examinations are postponed and the commission will be releasing new admit cards for the same.
