The General Awareness segment of SSC CGL Tier I exam can be a scoring section and a step between getting good and average marks in CGLE, provided the answers are given appropriately.
The first footstep toward GA preparation is to make a list of topic from each of the categories mentioned in the article and assess your knowledge in each category, with evaluation of your current familiarity about the topics, you can plan your preparation accordingly.
In case of Science, the best move is to revise all that was studied in school and understand each concept. If your concept is clear, you would find it easier to memorize the topics.
In case of static GK there is a need to revise on a regular basis because it does not involve concepts and you need to memorize the information. Also, it has been observed by many SSC CGLE toppers over the past years that previous year examination papers prove to be great help when preparing for General Awareness section.
The subtopics of main subjects with their marks distribution can be found in the following table:
|Physics and Space Science|
|Computer and Mobile Tech.|

|Sports, People in News, Books etc.|
Before you pick a book to start memorizing the facts, one must know what to focus on in Science. CGL includes questions that consists of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Thus one must follow very important topics first as this subject is vast and can mislead as a time consuming subject.
Similar to General Science, History is also vast with subdivision in Ancient History, Medieval History and Modern History. One of the most important tip to keep in mind is that revising what one has studied during the school time is enough for this part of general awareness but if someone wants to learn more on these, one can find the recommended books for each of the type mentioned below.
One can practice Geography using maps, thus you can easily remember about all ports in India and similarly about soil types.
One must only follow the important topics that have been mentioned below as this is not a well asked section in SSC CGLE.
