IV. Read Monthly Megazine : Megaziness are best source of current Affairs Knowledge. Read a good Monthly Megazine always. Pratiyogita Darpan is one of the best monthly Megazine.
V. Identify your strong and Weak areas: While preparing for the examination find out your strong and weak areas. It is true that all the topics of the syllabus is not equally understandable. There are few topics which you may find  easier and some topics which you may find Difficult. So identify your easier and difficult topics. Try to allocate more your preparation time for difficult topics and less time for strong topics.
VI. Identify important topics: It is called that exam paper contains questions from all the topics but there are few topics from which more questions are asked always and from few topics less questions are asked. Identify the frequently asked topics from previous year questions and allocate more time of your preparation to those topics.
VII. Revise and Revise: Revision is the best to remember things for longer period. If you think you are not able to remember then do practice as much as you can do revise. Revise difficult topics daily. GK are forgotten frequently. So do Revise GK daily.
VIII. Test Yourself: Only preparation is not enough for cracking the examination. Time is very crucial for any type of competitive examination and specially SSC CHSL is so competitive that if you are not fast enough in solving problems then you will not able to make you name in the final list. And the best way to increase your working speed is testing yourself with mock questions papers. Buy mock question papers and do Mock test Yourself every week. And see improvements. I am sure if you have done 20 mock test then you will surely be able to manage time in the examination easily.
IX. Do course Related Activities: Every day we spend a lot of time playing mobile games, watching movies, watching TV , chatting with friends and more. If you are a game Fricks then play course Related games like guessing word game, like word rush, play puzzle game, play KBC, play reasoning game etc. Also if you love watching movie and do watch English movie it will improve your English Vocabularies. If you chat more with your friend then do chat in English and never chat in short cut and code language use full English words and type by yourself don’t take from suggestions.
5. Time Management During Examination
 
As I have already mentioned that time management is very much important during exam time because the exam paper is not so touch but the thing that we should remember is the limited time that is offered to you. There are 200 questions in the exam paper and allocated time is only 120 minute so if we do analysis how much time is allocated to answer a question then we will find that it is very less. Let’s do an analysis say you need 10 minute to darken the answer sheet the effective time allocated to solve the paper is only 110 minute thus to solve each question you are allocated only 32 sec which is very less. In this 32 sec you have to read the question, have to understand the question and have to answer. So if you are not fast in reading as well as understanding then you will never be able to solve all questions.  So  I want to suggest you few tips for Exam time management so that you can. Maximise you answering.
i . Always try to solve GK questions first. If is noticed that GK question do not take much time to be solve since there is no thinking components.
ii. Do not stick in a single questions more. If you find any questions puzzling you then immediately skip the question. Ot you may mark if for final review.
III. Always try to solve reasoning and quantitative aptitude questions at last. They are more time consuming.
iv. For Offline Examinations always bring a used ball pen. Never use a new pen. Used ball pen will minimised your circleling time.
v. Stop Guessing: Guessing and answering may lead to reduce your obtained marks. If you not 100% sure about the answer then never try to answer it. Always keep in mind that there is negative marking in the examination. And if you really want to guess then only guess when you are sure that there are two questions which are not true.
