    Every aspirant must be aware of the fact that the CGLE has a General Awareness section in its Tier I, and General Awareness is not something one can expect to master in a day preparation. From an examination point of view, one must spend time efficiently, Since, this section takes a lot lesser time as compared to Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning section, one should prepare in a way that is consistent and efficient so that one can perform well in it in relatively less time. This section acquires more importance because this is the only section which can be attempted quickly i.e. in 06-09 minutes and at the same time, decent marks can be scored in this section if prepared well.
